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.
