24 Things I Learned in 24 Years

I am officially 24 years old, a.k.a. one more year until I’m a quarter of a century! What?! I feel like a lot of people hate the fact that they are getting older, where I am the complete opposite! I actually think it’s so cool! Lol, I know I’m crazy but it’s true! There is just something about getting older that makes me feel good and proud of myself! I also feel SO old the first few months of turning a year older and then by like four months in I start to feel super young and like I’m still a teenager, lol. Anyone else feel the same way? Just me? Okay.

Enough rambling, more blogging! If ya didn’t know, I just turned 24 years old on Sunday, January 21! And again, if ya didn’t know, I am obviously blogging about it! I thought it would be fun to do a “24 things I learned in 24 years” type of post! So, if you’re into it keep on reading!


24 Things I Learned in 24 Years

  1. The way you pictured how your life was going to look like at age 24, when you were 12, is a lot different than how it actually will be. But in the best way possible.
  2. You have to put yourself first when it comes to your happiness.
  3. There’s no time for toxic relationships, whether that be friendships or romantic relationships.

  5. Everyone has an agenda, including you, so be respectful and kind but set boundaries.
