20 Things To Remember In Your 20s

Don't take anything for granted, because it could be gone in the blink of an eye.

Life can be hard. Especially for teenagers. They are going through life changes, and then high school is added on top of that. Here is some advice I have to anyone under twenty.

  • Life is too short. Take those risks, and deal with the possible consequences later.
  • Stay a kid at heart. There is no need to be serious all the time.
  • You have your whole life ahead of you. Do not feel the need to compete with others.
  • Buy that concert ticket.
  • Do not feel the need to party every weekend. If fun to you is laying back on your couch and watching a movie, then do it.
  • Do not let society change you.
  • Dye your hair that crazy color. Try that new makeup trend.
  • People are always going to try and tear you down. It's nothing you did.
  • You're not a burden. Confide in who you need to.
  • Love who you are. Every part of you.
  • Don't take anything for granted, because it could be gone in the blink of an eye.
  • Don't lie to fit into a certain group of friends. It is not worth it, and you don't want to lose yourself in the process.
  • High school won't matter after graduation.
  • Eat that burger.
  • Don't ever think you're not good enough.
  • Don't spend your time on a boy who doesn't give you time back.
  • Don't let people put limits on you.
  • Defy the odds.
  • Do whatever makes you happy.
  • Soak in every moment you have. Time flies.

Please do not let anyone, or anything change who you are. Stay true to yourself, and remember to always live in the moment.

“Life is too short to be serious.” – Cory Monteith

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
