Today I turned 20 years old, when I was little I’d look at people my age and think they were adults who had their lives together. However, today I’ve realised that isn’t the case. But now that I’ve reached the age I always dreaded, I thought I’d make a list of 20 things I’ve learnt so far...
Well behaved women don’t change the world.
You have the power to make history.
When you’re drunk, have berocca before bed - you won’t have as bad of a hangover when you wake up.
If someone slaps you, slap them back twice as hard. Never start the fight, but always finish it.
The world is wide, make your heart wider.
Rape is rape. There is no grey area.
Make mistakes, but never make the same twice.
Your strength is your beauty.
Stand up for what you believe in.
Never argue with an ignorant person, they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you on sheer experience.
Look for the goodness in everything.
You could be the ripest strawberry in the field, but there will always be someone who dislikes strawberries.
You are very very very stubborn, but sometimes it’s better to say sorry and make up than it is to lose a friend.
Bikers are the softest people you will ever meet. Even the big ones with beards.
Be interested in art, music and theatre. You’ll learn more there than from any lecture.
Lions don’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep.
Ice Cream mends a broken heart.
Falling in love is terrifying, but so worth it.
“Trust, and go forward!”
Travel, feel free. You’ll never see the same stars twice.
