21 Things

I turned 21 on February 13th. Here's what I've learnt so far:
  1. People don't care about you as much as you think they do
  2. That is not a bad thing.
  3. Go out and do what you want to do
  4. Because you have to
  5. Things don't just happen.
  6. There's always going to be things that are difficult or you don't want to do
  7. Get used to it
  8. They're never as bad as you think they'll be.
  9. It's not unusual to feel overwhelmed
  10. What matters is how you react to things.
  11. If you feel awful feelings far too often then find someone to talk to about it
  12. You'd be surprised at how many people can relate to you.
  13. Don't lie in an attempt to impress people - it's never worth it.
  14. Friendships, like relationships, run their course
  15. People change, as will you, and that is a great thing
  16. You can maintain those relationships that matter but you have to put the effort in.
  17. Dance to the ABBA classic 'Dancing Queen' as often as possible at age 17 (it's not the same at any other age).
  18. Try not to let yourself be pressured into things; go at your own pace.
  19. Open yourself up to as much literature, music, art, film, theatre and t.v. as possible
  20. Accept and love that you really know nothing
  21. The world is full of unique people you can learn from.
