20 things I have learnt in 20 years.

As I am sitting here writing this blog post, I should be editing a blog post that I am going to be assessed for, but instead, I am writing this.  I'm just gonna get to the point, this is the last day that I am going to be a teenager, and as I am writing this tomorrow, the day that I am going to post this I am going to be 20. 20. I think it is too early to have a mid-life crisis, but seriously I'm turning 20 really? Anyway, I have seen lots of posts about the things that people have learnt in 20 years, and I wanted to do one so here goes...

1. You will grow up, it is a fact of life but your age is nothing but a number, and you can always be young in your heart.

2. You will lose touch with people. It is a fact of life but even though you will lose contact with people does not mean you can't think about them every day.

3. Your passions are important, don't forget them. If you think that you are alone in these passions, you are probably wrong. Find those people and don't let go. 

4. Your mental and physical health are important, if you feel like anything is wrong with them, get help. 

5. Life is messy sometimes, but you will get through it, there is always light at the end of a tunnel.

6. Be a little kinder than you have to (OK so this is from We Were Liars but still relevant)

7. Do what you love... (Cliche but true)

8. Rejections are a part of life. Those who can face rejection, are the ones who keep on going and are one step closer to their dreams. 

9. Friends are important but don't forget your family, they are important are they in my case are there for me. (Thanks, guys)

10. Love what you love even if it is that cheesy boy band or that really so called terrible book. 

11. Sometimes going out of your comfort zone is good but only do it if you feel ready.

12. Always be early. (It will save you so much trouble.)

13. FOMO is a thing that happens, but you should never undervalue your own company and a good book. 

14. The internet can be the best and worst thing in the world although I have had some of my best times on the internet. 

15. Sometimes things will happen that you don't argee with. It's these things that we should continue to fight for until they are achieved. 

16. Don't go out with wet hair, especially if it is -2. (I still have not mastered this one.)

17. Sing loudly to your favourite songs even if you are terrible. 

18. READ! (I don't understand why you wouldn't want to but...)

19. Drive your own path. Be you, be unique, and don't follow the crowd. 

20. Keep on learning. You still have a lot more to know, even though I don't know what they are yet.

OK, so they are some of the things that I have learnt in 20 years.

What is some advice that you have gathered over the years?

See you soon, 

Amy

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
