22 Things I've Learned in 22 Years

5:00 AM

Today is my 22nd birthday! I am headed up to the lake for a busy weekend of celebrating with family and friends. I guess you could say that I am feelin 22 today and also a little sentimental and scared. Kyle says, "when you turn 20 it's fun because you finally made it to your twenties, then you turn 21 and it a big party because you can drink, and then you turn 22 and people start asking the serious questions; like "when will you get a job" and "are you guys getting married?" I thought that writing down 22 things I've learned in my 22 years would be a good way to start my 22nd year of life.

1. People change and that's okay. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not, but that is OKAY.

2. College is really hard ( but you can do it) and make sure that it is something you look back on with joy and fulfillment.

3. Not everyone will accept you but, hold on to those who do.

4. Forget the bad/mean boys, the good ones are out there. Trust me!

5. Be honest with your mom it is so much easier in the long run.

6. If you want something, go get it and do it.

7. Things won't be handed to you, you have to work for them.

8. Enjoy your younger siblings now because one day they will be busy adults.

9. You'll have to do things in life you don't wanna do, remember that nothing lasts forever (like that semester of biopsychology).

10. Listen to your mom she knows what she's talking about, even if it doesn't seem like it at the time.

11. In 2 years no one will care how many Instagram likes you have.

12. Go to every possible family get together because everyone won't be around forever.

13. Go out with your friends and have fun because you deserve it and they do too.

14. Just because you did bad on one assignment doesn't mean you can't succeed in college.

15. If you wanna go on a diet do it the right way, no pills or insane diets where you can only eat 5 calories a day.

16. Laugh at the things that are funny, it's good for your soul.

17. Surround yourself with good people, you don't need any negative energy in your life.

18. Wear the loud and vibrant colored outfit even if it is out of your comfort zone. Rock that S**t girl!

19. Take care of your body and your mental state it is really important now and later in life.

20. Live by the words " She believed she could so she did."

21. Don't get angry over things you can't control, we all make mistakes and we learn from them.

22. Enjoy the little things in life.
