20 Things About Turning 20

So today is officially my 20th birthday! I'm finally out of my teen years and starting to feel more like an 'adult' lets hope anyway! Even though I was at work, everyone made such an effort to make it a fab day, especially as I had my interview for the job on my birthday last year.

I was thinking of a blog post that wasn't just showing what I got for my birthday, but something that could reflect back on my good old 20 years. And here's a few embarrassing, funny, cringey and awesome things I've learnt in my 20 years...

  1. Crimping your hair is never a good look. I spent a good few of my teenage years with crimped hair, it was all the range.
  2. Being nice gets your far. It's a good lesson to learn and understand that it's nice to be nice!
  3. Pretending like you're part of S Club 7 worked in the 2000's but not now... Now it's One Direction all over.
  4. Your friends are important. Even though I've never had a massive friend group, the close girlfriends I have are the best!
  5. WKD and Smirnoff Ice are not soft drinks! Remember those days?!
  6. Put your mind to it and you can conquer your fears. I used to hate flying, but I flew to Japan this year so anything is possible!
  7. Space Hopper + Trampoline = Disaster. Fractured both my wrists at the same time, funnily enough I haven't tried that again...
  8. Keep your family close. Because you never know when you will need them the most.
  9. Bell bottomed trousers were cool before...But they really don't suit you now...
  10. Do those scary things out of your comfort zone. You learn and grow as a person and doing things out of your comfort zone helps that.
  11. Be warned of the Heelys. They were cool one day, but you really can't walk in them!
  12. Some things work out for the best. If you just let go, then everything falls into place for the right reason. Just trust it.
  13. No matter what, you'll never be able to rescue Princess Peach. Even at 20 years old it still baffles me how she manages to get captured.
  14. Hard work pays off. Stick to your guns, get your head down and watch it all pay off. 
  15. Bowl haircuts never looked good, Mum. Every year during primary school I had a Lego head haircut!
  16. You're a lot stronger than you think. You'll be tested and tried, but you'll come out a better and stronger person. 
  17. Even though you tried, you'll never be able to ride a cow. Don't ask, but I had this idea in my head when I was younger that I could ride a cow in a field near my grandparents house.
  18. You've achieved a lot. Like most Brits, I don't take compliments well, but looking back on 20 years and I've not done half bad.
  19. Karaoke is one of the best inventions. And I have the homemade videos to prove it...
  20. If the past 20 years are anything to go by, the next 20 will be just as amazing.
