20 Things In 20 Years

It's the 29th of December 2017 which means it's the day before my 20th birthday. Because my birthday is the second last day of the year it's a great time to reflect on the past year of 2017 and being 19. I did a similar post this time last year which you can read here and I love having them to look back on. This year was full of very great highs and terrible lows so I'm going to share 20 things I've learned particularly in the past year. 

1. Travelling is contagious, so do as much of it as you can 
2. Money isn't everything at the end of the day  
3. Have friends that you can talk to about anything and everything 
4. Bad things don't particularly come in three's, so be prepared for a fourth
5. Take a break if needs be whether that's social media, college, relationships etc  
6. Gin will get you drunk, enough said 
7. You'd be surprised who you'll be close to in a year, people who you barely knew last year are now like family  
8. College is hard, whatever course you're doing 
9. Some lads aren't worth your time so don't give it to them
10. Powder foundation will change your life (seriously) 
11. Some friends know you better than you know yourself 
12. Chocolate is worth the spot you'll get after so eat the whole bar 
13. Experiences are worth every single penny so buy as many concert tickets as possible and go to all the gigs you can 
14. Don't be ashamed to cry in public places (even if it is in the middle of the library)  
15. Sometimes you have to put yourself first, be selfish 
16. Big nights out are usually the worst nights because you never get in anywhere 
17. Spotify premium is worth it (trust me on this one) 
18. Uncomfortable shoes are never worth it, however nice they look 
19. If it makes you happy, keep doing it even if it takes up loads of your time and energy
20. Doing new things and meeting new people can be terrifying but getting out of your comfort zone is always worth it
So there's a bit of a look back at what I've learned the past year, very cringe I know but kind of the main things I'd tell my 19 year old self. I'm so excited for this year to be over and even more excited to finally be 20!! I hope you had a great year and if you're looking forward to putting it behind you then I hope 2018 will be a better one. Thank you for all your continued support this year and I'll talk to ye in the new year,
