It's My Birthday! 22 Things

Happy Sunday! I hope you're all having a good weekend! I know I am. I've been celebrating my birthday since Thursday night, but I'll save that for my weekend shenanigans post!

I've learned a lot since I turned twenty-one 365 days ago. Most importantly, I've learned to eat before I drink so that I don't puke everywhere. I'll just leave this post here before I return to the festivities.

22 Things I've Learned in My 22 Years!
  1. Not everyone is meant to stay in your life forever.
  2. If something is causing unnecessary stress in your life, let it go.
  3. If you find someone who puts up with your shit no matter what you do, hold on to them.
  4. Eveything tastes better covered in hot sauce, chocolate, or cheese.
  5. Sitting on your feet is bad for circulation.
  6. Tell people when something is bothering you - bottling it up only causes major problems later.
  7. Nervous breakdowns can result in huge life decisions.
  8. Sometimes the weird guy from your science class ends up being your soulmate. 
    yes, we're doing the prom pose
  9. Making your bed makes you feel like your life is together
  10. Booths are always be better than tables
  11. When your grandfather tells you the same story you've heard a million times, listen to him. You're gonna miss those stories when he's gone.
  12. Always pour the hot water over the tea.
  13. Push-up bras don't do anything if you don't have boobs to push up.
  14. Write it down now or you will forget it.
  15. Carry your phone charger everywhere.
  16. Most people suck, but there are still some who can restore your faith in humanity.
  17. Dust from top to bottom, then vacuum.
  18. You sleep better with a clean room and fresh sheets.
  19. Taking vitamins actually keeps you healthy.
  20. Withdrawing from a class does not mean you're a failure.
  21. Beer causes fewer hangovers than vodka.
  22. If you work in a grocery store, you will get hit on by creepy men.
