I can't believe that my 21st birthday is coming up so quickly. It really is amazing how quickly time flies. As I sit in my bedroom and think about how I will spend my birthday, I reflect on what I've learned up until this point. Even though we might learn a lot about math, science, history, etc. in school, there are also a lot of lessons that academia can't teach us, but that doesn't mean that we shouldn't take the time to figure out the ins and outs of life ourselves. Although a lot of these tasks may seem small or unimportant, they're actually pretty significant, so here's my list of 21 things everyone should know how to do by the time they turn 21.

1. Do laundry

2. Cook a meal

3. Write a check

4. Fill out a job application

5. Parallel park

6. Make a doctor's appointment

7. Save money

8. Jumpstart a car

9. Wrap presents

10. Wash dishes

11. Tip well

12. Go grocery shopping

13. Exercise

14. Write a professional email

15. Floss properly

16. Clean a cut

17. Make a cup of coffee

18. Buy a plane ticket

19. Be on time

20. Work a part-time job

21. Have fun!
