Now that I'm entering my twenties and my college years are beginning to fly by, I'm starting to consider how fit I am for the real world. I've been living on my own for awhile now and to be honest, I'm just as clueless as ever. Sometimes, I feel like I'm just a very large toddler without any adult supervision. I really don't know as much as I should at this age. Maybe it's because I'm busy with my studies, or maybe it's because I'm not ready to grow up. Regardless, there are a lot of things that I should know how to do now that I'm getting older, and unfortunately I'm just as clueless as ever. So here are 36 things I'm not sure I'll ever be able to do or understand, no matter my age or maturity level.
