7 'Adult' Lessons I Learned This Summer

Who knew this would be so difficult, am I right?

7 'Adult' Lessons I Learned This Summer

This summer has been a wild ride. A lot of things have changed in my life. Some minor and some very major. And through this whole roller coaster that has been the last eight weeks, I've learned a few things that I would like to share.

Sometimes You Have To Suck It Up

This summer I had to do things I didn't want to do. But I did them because I knew it would benefit me. Example, I dropped a class with a professor I really love so that I could work more. And I'm still mad about it, but I did it anyway.

People Will Let You Down

Now I knew this, but it still stinks. And the worst part is picking yourself up from that disappointment and moving on. Which leads to my next lesson….

Let Go of Anger

Just pull as Elsa and let it go. There's no point in being angry for days. It's not a good feeling and then you're in a bad mood and you can't stop thinking about it. There's just no point in holding on to it. Be angry at the moment and then let it go.

Always Have a Back-Up Plan

Always, always, always have a backup plan. You don't even have to work on the plan, just have one. Because on the off chance that something doesn't work or something falls through, you won't be lost and stressed about what to do next. Because you have…..a backup plan!

You Have to Learn What You Hate

t's the only way to figure out what you love. And maybe you'll get lucky and find the love first. But for me, I had to go through a work experience that was not the best for me to realize what I actually want from a job.

Get It Done

Whatever it is, get it done. Because then it's over. No more worries, no more thoughts about it, no more scheduling time for it. Whatever it is, it'll be done.

People Who Care, Will Show Up

Whether it's in person, over the phone, texting you puppy pictures. People who are there for you will find some way to let you know. Those are the people you should have in your life and they will prove it to you.

Amsterdam: A Different Culture

Walking down the narrow street towards the Red Light District, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But when we came across our first “peep show” I was shocked. I knew that prostitution was legal in Amsterdam, but I didn’t realize the extent to which it filled this district. With the smell of cannabis and urine in the air, I realized everything anyone had ever told me about Amsterdam was true.

The Adventure Of Hawaii

There are new colors out there.

The Adventure Of Hawaii
Natalie Hoover

Have you ever tried to think of a new color? Or come up with your own new sound, or taste--something no one has ever seen or heard or tasted in all of history? I've tried before, and failed each time. I started to think that such things as new colors were fantasies, that new sounds could only be found in heaven and that new tastes were nothing more than the hazy daydreams of hungry tourists. But then I came to Hawaii.

Until recently, television wasn't really the place for large-scale projects. But with the successes of online streaming shows such as Stranger Things and Black Mirror, as well as the high-budget epics like Game of Thrones. It was recently revealed what the premise and title of the upcoming Disney streaming exclusive, live-action Star Wars series would be – The Mandalorian. While it's the first real project the service is actively working on, it is not the first shot at a television series in the galaxy far far away. In the time between the Prequel Trilogy and the Disney sale in 2012, Lucasfilm was working on and off on a live-action series that would be the new step for the saga, but over time it proved that some things are just not meant to be.

Dear Los Angeles
Molly Lee Foster

Not going to lie, before this particular trip, you were by far my least favorite city. I hadn't seen you in your true light and honestly, I don't think many people do.
