21 Things Everyone Should Know How To Do By 21
The Arcade

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!

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
