At 21, I’ve learned some really good lessons so far! But there are also a lot of things that are still uncertain, or that I simply don’t know. I’m workin’ on them; here are a few…
1. Going to bed early.
I try so hard every night. It never happens. 2016 maybe?
2. How to talk to people.
I’m not going to say I am THE awkward penguin, but making conversation with someone can definitely stress me out.
3. What good wine is.
They’re all delicious and heighten my hopes and dreams…Am I missing out on some big secret?
Let’s get real. Do I really have to separate my darks and my whites?
5. Why are there different kinds of forks at a nice meal?
One is enough isn’t it??
6. What is stock and how do I do this thing called investing?
Thank god I learned Hot Cross Buns on the recorder and how to locate a library book using the card catalogue system though…whew.
7. How to spend money on things that matter.
Should I buy those boots that I don’t need and look strikingly similar to ones I already have? LOL probably.
Which brings me to my next point…
8. How to save money.
Is there maybe a formula someone could give me? That’d be great.
9. How to say no.
This is a hard one for me. What can I say; I’m a people pleaser.
10. What my political viewpoint is yet.
Growing up in a lower middle class family, and then being taught and molded by (mostly) wealthy business professors tends to pull you in opposite directions…
11. Who I am.
Ok. I know this may sound a little cheesy, but I really don’t know all there is to know about myself yet. What makes me tick? What stresses me out most? What kind of ice cream is my favorite??
12. How to be flexible.
Nuff’ said Lorelai.
13. What my strengths/weaknesses are.
You can’t really Google this one yet…
14. How I have become so much like my parents in so many ways??
Seriously tho. How did this happen?
15. To love the parts of myself that no one claps for.
Still learning this one.
How do I even…?
17. How to stay positive and look for the good.
This line made me rethink my entire existence.
18. Accepting disappointment.
Disappointment is such an uncomfortable feeling for me; I often let it get in the way of my moving forward.
19. Letting go of control.
Let’s just say Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is basically my spirit animal.
20. Putting myself first.
People pleasers generally struggle with this.
21. Eating Well.
Kit Kats and ice cream are wonders of this world and why can I not eat them all the time?!!
