Twenty-Two Things I Learned From Being Twenty-Two

  1. Just because it has a built in bookshelf, doesn’t mean it’s the right place for you to move.
  2. Don’t pretend to afford things when you know that you can’t.
  3. Moving karma is a real thing.
  4. Don’t let someone else dictate your self esteem.
  5. Don’t take birth control when you know that you already have hormone issues.
  6. Save up your vacation time for actual vacations and emergencies. (Hangovers are not emergencies).
  7. Don’t eat if you’re in for a night of drinking. It’ll get you drunk quicker, saving you money in both food and drink.
  8. I actually like hiking. I knew this already, but I needed a reminder.
  9. It’s okay to cut off family, as long as you’re doing it for the right reasons.
  10. Attend any and all get-togethers. You’ll never know who you’ll meet.
  11. Don’t get involved with someone unless you have a clear detail of what you want out of the relationship.
  12. Don’t go home with a guy you just met, especially if you’re drunk. I cannot stress this enough.
  13. I’m not as strong physically as I thought I was. I am working to change this.
  14. Cookie parties are awesome and should be had more often.
  15. If you’re going to have a Valentine’s Day singles party, make sure there is another room for this newly connected “couple” to go make out.
  16. Make your own happiness and stop waiting to just be happy.
  17. There is more to life and comics than Batman.
  18. Escapism is fine some of the time, but constant escapism is unhealthy.
  19. Doing more to improve your environment is lucrative and will make you happy.
  20. Volunteering is a way to do something fun without spending money. And sometimes, you just happen to meet cute boys named Dean who write poetry and have a wonderful smile.
  21. It’s okay to humble yourself and ask for help if you need it.
  22. Your true friends will remain your friends, even if they, or you, move.
