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.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
