25 THINGS TO ACTUALLY DO BEFORE YOU’RE 25

callmejude:

1) REALIZE THAT YOU’RE NEVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU REACH A CERTAIN AGE. IT SIMPLY ISN’T POSSIBLE. NOT EVEN THIS LIST, PROBABLY. THAT’S OKAY.

2) COME TO TERMS WITH THAT FACT

3) TELL PEOPLE WHO TELL YOU OTHERWISE TO SHUT UP, NOT EVERYONE GETS TO HAVE THE SAME CHANCES, NOT EVERYONE HAS THE SAME EXPERIENCES, NOT EVERYONE EVEN WANTS THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.

4) FIND THE GOALS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU SPECIFICALLY AND WORK TOWARDS ACHIEVING THOSE GOALS WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF TIME

4) DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING THINGS YOU WANT TO DO AT A FASTER PACE OR YOUNGER AGE. YOU AREN’T THEM. THEY AREN’T IMPORTANT.

5) IF YOU DECIDE HALFWAY THROUGH THAT YOU DON’T WANT SOMETHING YOU THOUGHT YOU DID, ALLOW YOURSELF TO CHANGE YOUR MIND.

6) DRINK LOTS OF WATER

7) EAT AS HEALTHILY AS YOU CAN AFFORD

8) GET AS MUCH SLEEP AS YOU CAN

9) LET YOURSELF CRY WHEN YOU NEED TO CRY

10) DON’T JUDGE YOURSELF FOR RELAPSING ON HABITS YOU THOUGHT YOU GREW OUT OF OR GOT BETTER FROM. IT’S NOT STARTING BACK AT SQUARE ONE. IT’S JUST LIFE. YOU’RE OKAY.

11) SPEND AS MUCH TIME AS YOU CAN WITH THE PEOPLE WHO MATTER MOST TO YOU.

12) DON’T LIE TO YOURSELF ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL. IF YOU FEEL TRAPPED ABOUT THINGS, WRITE THEM DOWN IN A DIARY JUST FOR YOU. GIVE YOURSELF THE FREEDOM TO HAVE YOUR OWN OPINIONS REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE ELSE IN YOUR LIFE HAS TO SAY ABOUT ANY OF IT.

13) IF YOU ARE DEPENDENT ON YOUR FAMILY OR SOMEONE ELSE, DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP ABOUT IT. TIMES ARE HARD. YOU’LL CHANGE IT WHEN YOU CAN.

14) ACCEPT THE FACT THAT YOUR EDUCATION, FORCED UPON, FAILED, OR OTHERWISE, DOES NOT DEFINE YOU. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A GENIUS TO BE A GOOD PERSON, AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GONNA DO WITH THE REST OF YOUR WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE RIGHT NOW.

15) LET YOURSELF BE SCARED, JEALOUS, ANGRY, STUPID AND PETULANT NOW AND AGAIN. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, EVERYONE ELSE IS, TOO.

16) DON’T STOP LETTING YOURSELF BELIEVE THAT THINGS CAN AND WILL GET BETTER. THEY MAY NOT GET BETTER BEFORE YOUR 25TH BIRTHDAY, BUT THEY STILL MIGHT, IN THE LONG RUN.

17) MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU’VE DONE OR THAT YOU ARE THAT MAKE YOU PROUD OF YOURSELF. LOOK AT IT WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE SHIT. IT MAY NOT HELP A LOT, BUT IT’S SOMETHING.

18) LET YOURSELF SAVE UP FOR SOMETHING DUMB. EVEN IF IT’S JUST A DOLLAR EVERY PAYCHECK OR CHANGE YOU FIND ALONG THE SIDEWALK. IT’LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

19) DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK HELP FROM PEOPLE WILLING TO GIVE IT. THERE’S NO SHAME IN NEEDING A LEG UP SOMETIMES.

20) IF YOU HAVEN’T FALLEN IN LOVE YET, YOU’RE NOT WEIRD. SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T HAPPEN. YOU CAN STILL BE PERFECTLY HAPPY ON YOUR OWN. IF YOU HAVE, GREAT! THAT’S GOOD TOO. DON’T LET THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ARGUMENT MAKE YOU FEEL DUMB EITHER WAY.

21) YOU ARE ALWAYS GOING TO MAKE MISTAKES. LEARN FROM THEM AND MOVE ON AS BEST YOU CAN. IT MAY TAKE A WHILE. THAT’S OKAY.

22) IF YOU WANT TO SING IN THE SHOWER, GO AHEAD. IF YOUR ROOMMATES OR FAMILY MAKE FUN OF YOU FOR IT, THAT’S THEIR IMMATURITY, NOT YOURS.

23) IT’S OKAY TO STILL WANT YOUR MOMMY AND DADDY SOMETIMES. EVEN IF YOU DON’T LET THEM KNOW AND JUST SIT IN YOUR ROOM AND CRY ABOUT IT, THAT’S FINE. ADULTHOOD IS AN ILLUSION. EVERYONE MISSES CHILDHOOD.

24) IF YOU HAVE A JOB THAT MAKES YOU MISERABLE, TRY AND MAKE THE BEST OF IT UNTIL YOU CAN MOVE ON FROM IT. MAYBE THE JOB SUCKS, BUT THE PEOPLE ARE OKAY. MAYBE THE PEOPLE SUCK BUT THE JOB IS FUN. MAYBE BOTH SUCK, BUT YOU’RE MAKING MONEY THAT YOU NEED. BE PROUD OF WHAT YOU’RE ACCOMPLISHING. SO YOU’RE A CASHIER AT MCDONALD’S. THAT’S SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF. YOU’RE WORKING A REALLY HARD, THANKLESS JOB TO MAKE ENDS MEET. YOU’RE STRONG AND BRAVE ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH IT BECAUSE YOU KNOW YOU HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE. THAT IS SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF.

25) BLACKLIST THAT ORIGINAL “25 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU’RE 25” POST. IT SUCKS. IF YOU DON’T LIKE THIS ONE, BLACKLIST IT, TOO.
