Turning 21

Today is my 21st Birthday, even I can't believe how fast time has gone. I can still remember a birthday back when I got a power puff girl toy set. BEST BIRTHDAY EVER?  21 is such a weird age to me. I plan to get absolutely shitfaced the weekend but that's probably the only adult thing I'll do. Growing up is a weird time. I still am, some parts of me hang on to my younger days but I don't think that's a bad thing at all.

I thought I'd use this post to tell you a few things I've learnt whilst becoming an adult...

  1. Earning your own money means you can buy whatever you want. Whenever you want. 
  2. Earning your own money means you need to be able to balance how you spend it. 
  3. Talking on the phone is weird and making appointments are the worst. Where's my mum when I need her?
  4. It's okay to lose friendships. It was the end of the world as a teenager in school to lose a friend but you soon learn it was never worth all that crying you did. They were shitty people anyway.
  5. Its also okay to not know what you want to do in life, and if it takes you a bit longer than others, that's also okay. I spent way too much time worrying about work and my future because everyone around me seemed to have sorted something out (temporarily). 
  6. The best way to conquer your fears are to face them straight up. I was terrified of socialising and making new friends so I started making plans with people and it got easier. It's sometimes still scary as fuck but I feel better for doing it. Now I'm always trying to plan nights out!
  7. Naps are the best. If you don't think so you clearly have a great sleeping schedule and have never needed to. ;). 
  8. Going to bed whenever you want is amazing but not the morning after when you've had 3 hours sleep and look like death. Yay. 
  9. Procrastination gets you nowhere. Shocker. 
  10. You appreciate everything your parents ever did for you. Always help them when they need it, even if they don't ask. 
There's a lot more things I've learnt and there will be a lot more I will come across as the years go by, but that pretty much sums it up for me. 

What did you learn growing up?
