18 Things I Learned at 18

We learn a lot in a year. So much goes on in 365 days, and as each 365 days pass a compilation of life lessons are taught.


18 never looked this good.

Tomorrow I turn 19 (best Friday ever, am I right?) and that means I’ve had roughly 365 days to learn some valuable life lessons. And this year was a doozy when it came to growing up. I graduated high school, moved out of the house, and started university. My whole life changed pretty drastically. But it was not for naught, as I now have a whole bunch of new life lessons that I can share with you! Last year I gave you 17 Things I Learned at 17 and a lot of you found it helpful for your own lives. I hope this year’s batch of fresh knowledge can be just as helpful.

Let’s get started on those life lessons, yeah?
