25 Things To Do Before You Turn 25

1. Make peace with your parents. Whether you finally recognize that they actually have your best interests in mind or you forgive them for being flawed human beings, you can’t happily enter adulthood with that familial brand of resentment.

2. Kiss someone you think is out of your league; kiss models and med students and entrepreneurs with part-time lives in Dubai and don’t worry about if they’re going to call you afterward.

3. Minimize your passivity.

4. Work a service job to gain some understanding of how tipping works, how to keep your cool around assholes, how a few kind words can change someone’s day.

5. Recognize freedom as a 5:30 a.m. trip to the diner with a bunch of strangers you’ve just met.

6. Try not to beat yourself up over having obtained a ‘useless’ Bachelor’s Degree. Debt is hell, and things didn’t pan out quite like you expected, but you did get to go to college, and having a degree isn’t the worst thing in the world to have. We will figure this mess out, I think, probably; the point is you’re not worth less just because there hasn’t been an immediate pay off for going to school. Be patient, work with what you have, and remember that a lot of us are in this together.

7. If you’re employed in any capacity, open a savings account. You never know when you might be unemployed or in desperate need of getting away for a few days. Even $10 a week is $520 more a year than you would’ve had otherwise.

8. Make a habit of going outside, enjoying the light, relearning your friends, forgetting the internet.

9. Go on a 4-day, brunch-fueled bender.

10. Start a relationship with your crush by telling them that you want them. Directly. Like, look them in the face and say it to them. Say, I want you. I want to be with you.

11. Learn to say ‘no’ — to yourself. Don’t keep wearing high heels if you hate them; don’t keep smoking if you’re disgusted by the way you smell the morning after; stop wasting entire days on your couch if you’re going to complain about missing the sun.

12. Take time to revisit the places that made you who you are: the apartment you grew up in, your middle school, your hometown. These places may or may not be here forever; you definitely won’t be.

13. Find a hobby that makes being alone feel lovely and empowering and like something to look forward to.

14. Think you know yourself until you meet someone better than you.

15. Forget who you are, what your priorities are, and how a person should be.

16. Identify your fears and instead of letting them dictate your every move, find and talk to people who have overcome them. Don’t settle for experiencing .000002% of what the world has to offer because you’re afraid of getting on a plane.

17. Make a habit of cleaning up and letting go. Just because it fit at one point doesn’t mean you need to keep it forever — whether ‘it’ is your favorite pair of pants or your ex.

18. Stop hating yourself.

19. Go out and watch that movie, read that book, listen to that band you already lied about watching, reading, listening to.

20. Take advantage of health insurance while you have it.

21. Make a habit of telling people how you feel, whether it means writing a gushing fan-girl email to someone whose work you love or telling your boss why you deserve a raise.

22. Date someone who says, “I love you” first.

23. Leave the country under the premise of “finding yourself.” This will be unsuccessful. Places do not change people. Instead, do a lot of solo drinking, read a lot of books, have sex in dirty hostels, and come home when you start to miss it.

24. Suck it up and buy a Macbook Pro.

25. Quit that job that’s making you miserable, end the relationship that makes you act like a lunatic, lose the friend whose sole purpose in life is making you feel like you’re perpetually on the verge of vomiting. You’re young, you’re resilient, there are other jobs and relationships and friends if you’re patient and open.

  • Mom, friends, Gf, BF: What's wrong?
  • My mind: I used to do so well in school but I'm not anymore.
  • My mind: The people I call friends, aren't my actual friends.
  • My mind: I'm constantly feeling alone.
  • My mind: I'm starting to look at myself different.
  • My mind: Nothing feels the same anymore.
  • My mind: I feel like I'm going to fail at anything I try to do.
  • My mind: I haven't been eating that much and I'm hungry all the time.
  • My mind: I feel like no one cares about me.
  • My mind: I just wanna sleep all day and never wake up.
  • Me: Oh nothing I'm fine.

I confessed my love to him… Now what?

What does that mean for me?

He says I am always acting crazy, causing turmoil between us. 

I told him that it is because I can never come to terms with my feelings for him. 

I love him so much, I act out.

Does that make sense?

I make him mad, only for me to get mad for him being mad but it’s really me being mad at myself for not being able to express my feelings for him.

So, who has the problem?

Me or him?

Dang it, love!

So… the love of my life got arrested for beating up his ex boyfriend this week. Anyone with common sense (which excludes me) would say stay away from him but in a very weird way, it has brought us closer together. I can’t complain… I mean I love that man and if you knew the complete story, you would have sympathy for him. So my week as been dedicated to making sure he is alright, he’s stable, to know he still has someone in his corner, and to show I love him.

Am I wrong for that??

If I am… I don’t care to be right.

Drowning Down Under: Lonely

wrecklesssoul:

I’ve always been the one to feel lonely. But nowadays it seems like no one is actually around or atleast who I want to be around. The people who I thought were my good friends are anti-social and never around which explains why I’m always so bored. I used to have my friends to keep my mind off of…

BranDonDidIt...Again :): Everything Is Grey...

brandondidit:

Everything is grey… We all look the same…

Nobody’s standing out.. We could all share a name…

For what gain? It’s insane.. To remain.. The same…

Slowing catching eyes… One and then another…

Grey starts to shift.. Sombodys caught a lover…

But the ones with one name are ashamed to claim…

And…
