We've all learned a lot from our teenage years, but there's still so much life to look forward to. When I turned 20, I promised myself that I would accomplish more of my goals and would be more open to experiences and honestly, just find ways to live my life better. Now that I'm 20, this next decade is where life really picks up and gets "roarin'."

1. Take more risks. Be more open. Live in the moment.

Don't live with "what ifs". Stay out late, make stupid decisions... (just don't lose your common sense). Don't be afraid of what "could happen" rather focus on enjoying yourself, even if it means doing something stupid and laughing about it later.

2. Appreciate the little things in life.

They're not always noticeable and we all take advantage of them too much.

3. Let go of what you can't control and let life happen.

Sometimes life's just a b***h.

4. Be more adventurous.

Make a day trip somewhere fun. Do something you've never done before. Travel the world. Try a food you never have. Join a new club/organization because it sounds cool. Learn when to say yes instead of no.

5. Be more decisive.

Speak up for yourself. Be your own advocate. It's okay to say no. No one else knows what you want/need except for you. Take a day for yourself or surround yourself with friends. You're not going to be alright if you don't feel like yourself.

6. We're in college. Please for Pete's sake don't act like you're in high school.

Grow up.

7. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

You're your own best advocate. It's okay to ask for help when you need it.

8. Exercise. 

You'll thank yourself later. Or don't. It's your life.

9. Thank those in your life.

We wouldn't be who we are without our friends and family. Don't take friends or family for granted either. More importantly, don't wait for others who don't wait for you. Boy bye.

10. Don't pretend life is better than it is.

It's okay to struggle.

11. Create traditions.

Whether it's with friends or family, they're something that'll give you a reason to see family and/or friends every year even when life gets busy and hectic.

12. Don't be afraid of meeting people.

Whether it's through friends, at a party, in a class, or an organization meeting people is something that brings the potential for new relationships (not just romantic ones).

13. Take every advantage you can to put your best foot forward.

Whether academically, career-wise, or in your personal life- do what's best for you. Make yourself known to professors (past and present), employers, and within your future or current career.

 14. Don't let other's judgment stop you from living your life.

Enough said.

15. Live life in the moment, but don't forget to capture the moments that matter.

Take photos. Lots of them.

16. Learn to love yourself as you are.

After all, there's only one you in this world.

17. Love has its own timing.

18. Learn when you need to recognize that you're wrong.

But also stand up for yourself when you know you're right (but be gracious). No one wants someone yelling at them attempting to prove that they're right (even when they're wrong).

19. Work towards your goals and accomplish them.

Goals aren't any good if they don't have a result- whether it's good or bad.

20. Embrace life.

A Bumble Couple's Wedding Was Canceled By COVID-19, But Nothing Could Come Between This Perfect Match

"The whole purpose of all the stress and time and tears was that we love each other and that was all that mattered."

Shortly after Kaihla's sister made her a dating profile on Bumble (despite her fear of being catfished), she matched with Shanna, and their chemistry was quickly undeniable. So much so that only a month and a half into dating, Shanna told her best friend "I think I'm going to marry her," and eventually, the nonprofit worker and elementary PE teacher duo proved this to be true.

In the fourth episode of a new docuseries called "Pandemic Weddings" by SoulPancake, the couple opens up about how they met, the difficulties of canceling a non-refundable wedding of their dreams (that took a year and a half to plan), as well as the pain of having family members who didn't support their marriage use the pandemic as a convenient excuse not to come.

If there's one thing everyone's talking about right now, it's voting — in real life, on social media, and yes, even on dating apps.

And rightfully so! Because is there really anything sexier than someone who cares about using their voice to be the change they want to see? In my opinion, no... not much, honestly.

Any medium- to dark-skinned woman knows how difficult it can be to find the right SPF. Most mass-market SPF products are catered to lighter skin tones, and the potent UV-blocking titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a way of leaving an unflattering white or grey cast on the skin.

The 2020 presidential election is coming up fast and it's important now more than ever to know the resources available to voters.

Each state has different links and different websites, so this information primarily pertains to Florida residents.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.
