Lat year, I finally turned 18 and I was SO happy about that. I finally would have more freedom and would be able to do what I want, as that's what 18 year olds do, right? Well... I was wrong. I was wrong about a lot of things really but I was right about some! Here are the top 18 things I learned from my first year of adulthood!
- Being an adult really isn't what I expected it to be.
- The cheapest ways to get from A- B, since I now have to pay for travel.
- You suddenly have responsibilities in the form of bills.
- Eventhough I have the power to vote, I know it won't change anything but voting for change is a lot of pressure.
- The pay rise you get because you turned 18 really doesn't make a difference in your life.
- I've learnt how to cook- well forced too, really.
- I spend way too much money online on clothes. That's right, when you can't see your money you apparently have infinite funds.
- Organisation is the key to success. Yes, BuJo has saved my life
- Progress takes time.
- Not all hard work goes noticed
- Going on holiday by yourself costs an arm and a leg.
- I have a slight new obsession with different flowers and flower types, check my insta if you don't believe me.
- Being 18 doesn't necessarily mean I'm an adult as I can barely look after myself.
- Clubbing really isn't all that. Movie nights are sometimes way better.
- Push myself. Sometimes I don't want to do something but then I force myself to and am so happy that I did.
- Just because I am an adult does not necessarily mean I am treated as one.
- I am way more lost at the age of 18 than at the age of 17
- I get drunk SO easily #hellolightweight
So 18 really wasn't a life changing age for me. I just ended up being a bit more lost with a tiny bit more freedom compared to the age of seventeen. Hopefully in a years time, when i'll be turning 20 (omg) I would have learned way more from being 19.
What have you learned in the past year? Let's hope you've learned better things than I have!
