20 things you'll do in Tel Aviv in your 20 somethings

20 things you'll do in Tel Aviv in your 20 somethings

You're still young, at the peak of your physical fitness and the cusp of your quarter-life crisis. Now's the time to be spontaneous. Spend your entire salary on alcohol (which isn't that much), and stock up on Shabbat dinner (and leftovers) at your parents' place. Here's our list of 20 things you will (/should) do in your 20s in Tel Aviv.


1. Invest in a bike. It will pay off to pocket that monthly bus money from work.



2. Pioneer a startup. If it doesn't exist, create it.




3. Live in a shitty studio apartment where the toilet doubles as a shower, which doubles as a sink, which doubles as a washing machine.



4. Take a job as a bartender, even if you have a bachelor's degree.



5. If you're not a bartender, befriend a bartender to get free Arak chasers.



6. Become a "DJ." A.k.a. spin 90s tunes in your local bar in the hopes of free booze.



7. Run a marathon. While you still can...



8. Forge a Friday morning hummus posse. And if you're really adventurous, maybe even a Saturday morning Jachnun clan.



9. Hit up Midburn, InDNegev, or some sort of fantastical festival down south.



10. Experiment with your fashion choices. There's no time like the present.



11. Experiment with other things...use your imagination.



12. Get a tattoo. You're old enough to not need parental consent, but young enough to give them time to process it.



13. Download a dating app. Spend your days swiping right.



14. Change your school major. Just because you're a nihilist doesn't mean philosophy is cool.



15. Start a punk band, and find a bad-ass girl to play bass.



16. Go vegan. Miss cheese. Go vegetarian. Miss meat. Eat meat.


17. Think about adopting a dog, but spend your Saturday morning at Gan Meir petting the dogs up for adoption instead. A husky? Who are you kidding, you live in a studio apartment.



18. Join a gym. And never go.



19. Pull an all-nighter. Who needs sleep when you've got the Alphabet club?



20. Travel anywhere and everywhere. The world is your oyster, take advantage because it's all downhill from here...
