I recently turned 20, by recently I may or may not mean 2 months ago, but still. I wanted to share 20 things I’ve learned so far in my (honestly short) life. I’m splitting it up into two parts though so it’s not a super long read.
I love having nice things but hate spending money. I not only love dressing well but I also like having things that will last me a long time.
Although I have a good job, I’m still in college AND paying for it so I can’t buy things like I used to. I’ve been working and saving money since I was 16 but at first getting the best deals on things wasn’t my first thought. Although I bought my first laptop and camera on sale and definitely dropped money on dumb things, leaving me to always question my purchases now.
So told I’m going to tell you about some of my secrets to still having nice things, but still being mindful with my spending
Over the past few months I noticed how easily irritated I had been getting, causing me to cut a lot of people out of my life (the amount of numbers I have blocked recently is wild smh). So I decided to take time to think about this and questioned why my mental health is getting worse all of a sudden.
I’ve realized I have spent to much time relying on other people to make me happy. I just got out of a not-so-great relationship that limited a lot of great things in my life but also left me with a limited amount of trust in people. So I decided I need to fully focus on myself, in order to be the best person I can be.
Sooo it’s November 1st. We’re 11 months into 2018 and I have taken more L’s this year than I thought was even possible. I have no idea where this year has gone and honestly I feel I have done absolutely nothing relevant with my life for a full year.
With that being said that just leaves (a lot of) room for improvement for 2019 rightttt?
If you’re new here, when I remember I have a blog, every month I talk about things that made my life good. I started doing this because it helps me realize even when it’s bad, there’s good.
I also want to take time to say I’m going back to my old ways and only using social media for content creating and promoting a happy lifestyle. I’ve gotten distracted the past year and honestly have turned into someone I don’t want to be so we’re changing it up.
I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was about 8 years old and have been taking medication ever since. Needless to say, I still have ADHD symptoms, just less than I would if I was unmedicated.
After being almost complete with my second semester of college I have a little bit of insight into ways to keep your college life organized even if you struggle with ADHD!
I’m here today to give you my top five tips on how I survived college so far and have stayed organized, you can even use these tips during the summer!
We all have bad days, some more than others. I used to struggle with depression and anxiety greatly, so it felt like every day was a bad day for me. After a while, my sad feelings went away, mostly thanks to this blog, and I haven’t had a really bad day in a while, until yesterday.
When I have a bad day or something sets me off, one of two things happen, I either get over it in an hour or I’m really sad for a day. I don’t necessarily get really personal on my blog, but I spent the majority of my day crying and being sad yesterday, just over someone’s words.
I know how horrible it is to have a bad day or to be upset, so I’m here today to give you five ways to stay and feel positive even on your worst days.
No matter where you go to college you have a lot of new experiences, but when going somewhere out of state, you obviously can have different expierences. You don’t have your family, friends, and likely don’t know anyone there.
Today, I finished my freshmen year of college. Although I only go to school one state away, 240 miles to be exact, it was still a completely new experience for me.
When I first got here I talked to EVERYONE, which was a new thing for me. Even though I am a relatively friendly person, most of the time, I never really cared about making friends in high school. That’s one thing I’m ending my freshmen year with, more friends than I think I have ever had before.
You have a whole new reputation to create since you know no one. If you go to college in your home state your bound to have previously known at least someone else who also attends your college. In my case, I never even met anyone that was from anywhere close to my home city.
I realized when I started attending my college how important family is. I missed my family greatly while I was away and have realized how much they mean to me.
Although you are going to college to learn, it’s really important to know about the town or city your school is in. I did not do this and I regret it greatly.
Going to college in state and out state is different, but you really will get the relatively same experience. I love the people I met. I’ve learned so much about myself so far, but I’m sure I would have if I went to school in state too. I’ve learned that everyone is different in their own way, I’ve learned that people really do go to college for different reasons, I’ve learned the importance of kindness, hard work, and not only how to love myself more, but how to love everyone I meet.
I had all intentions to post this on Valentine’s Day, it is about love after all. But between how comfortable my bed was and how not so good of a mood I was in, I decided to push it back a day.
I got this idea after I saw Nathalie Paris post about it on her Snapchat. I thought it was a cool idea but decided to put my own spin on it, like always.
If you’re new here, or forgot I existed due to my failing to post for a month, monthly happiness is something I post about every month. I take time to reflect on all the good situations I was put in, by choice or on accident over the past, around 30 days.
January was honestly a great month for me. It was full of a lot of different events and adventures that I can’t wait to share.
October was a great month filled with a lot of cool opportunities! If you’re new here, every month I share somethings that made my month great. Why do I do this? To show that even when you don’t think your life is going right there is always going to be something positive!
