Dood, anyone under the age of 30 is not old. I feel like the younger you are, the older you feel. Or rather, the more conscious you are of "being an adult" and feeling all these expectations of what you are "supposed to be doing". You're feeling the weight of the great big nebulous future and expectations. When you're physically young, you have a lot of those.
And really, you have all of your 20s to waste. Hell, even your 30s. It's relative. Enjoy being young, give yourself permission to make mistakes or even do nothing at all.
People can live entire lifetimes before 30. You're not running a race, not even against yourself. Some people know very early on what they want to do and do exactly that. Other people have no idea and do not find their passion or have the opportunity to do what they want to do until much later in life. It's not even that there are many roads to Rome, there really is no Rome, no ultimate destination other than death. I think that can create a lot of anxiety in people and create this need to be "productive" and to be "doing something".
Anywhoo, don't worry so much about whether you're doing it right and everything you could or should be doing and just enjoy the present and do whatever you feel like doing. And if you don't know what you feel like doing, that's totally okay.
