I Turned 20 And Still Feel Young

If you feel young at 20, then you are lucky.

I Turned 20 And Still Feel Young

Recently, I turned 20 and it feels so different to be 20 because of two reasons. One is that I am not a teen anymore which makes me a more mature woman. The second is that I am getting old.

I am not saying getting old is a bad thing, but it is actually a good thing. I believe I have evolved as a person and became a more mature person. I think that is a very good thing. Why do I think that way? Well, there is not one reason for it.

I think when I was a teenager, I was going through a lot of hormonal and physical changes in my body. There was much time I would not know what I am doing and my emotions would change from time to time. I couldn't think properly. It was a time when I felt totally down. Teenage life was not bad, but it was not great.

When I started to become a little older, I started to understand the world from a very different perspective. I started to like everything that surrounded me. I began to look around me. It was a different feeling because when I started to look at things in a different way; I started to like them. When someone looks at things very differently, then they start to like them. And that is what I felt. I started to feel like a new person and it only happened when I started to get out of my teenage phase. That is why I still feel young even though I'm not a teenager anymore.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
