20 BEFORE 20

  1. 1.
    Be nicer to your family, especially your sister.
    You honestly have a problem here. Why are you so nice to strangers but so mean to your family? Your family is awesome.
  2. 2.
    If you have extra money, spend it on things that you like that also improve you as a person and not things that you like but also increase your chance of having atherosclerosis by 99999%
    Long story short- you spend too much of your money at KFC
  3. 3.
    Make time for old friends you cherish
  4. 4.
    Be able to order food and hold a casual conversation in another language
  5. 5.
    OMG PLEASE LEARN HOW TO BUDGET
  6. 6.
    You happen to like things that are actually educational- embrace it and learn some more!
  7. 7.
    You happen to like things that are purely for entertainment- embrace it but don't let it ruin your life!
  8. 8.
    Finally dye your hair dark blue
  9. 9.
    Host a cute dinner party. Or a bitching house party.
  10. 10.
    You need discipline in your life. You have tonnes of motivation but you need discipline. If you have decided to do something to better yourself, stick to it.
  11. 11.
    For the love of God, please start exercising.
    So you're lucky that right now you can eat three Big Macs after a night out and still be called petite but let's be real here- you have noticed that the pounds are starting to pile. Do you want to have a heart attack at 30? That's not even an exaggeration because your family history is riddled with heart problems (and also liver damage due to excessive drinking but that's a list for another day). Get dancing and start swimming again.
  12. 12.
    Read the news about your motherland
    You keep up with politics here, you can keep up with politics in one more country
  13. 13.
    Stop pushing your feelings away
  14. 14.
    Wash your fucking tights properly
    You wear tights A LOT. How many times are you going to have to put your tights on and realise that they look dirty and you didn't wash them properly before you learn? You're an adult. Surely you can do this.
  15. 15.
    Stop being such a people pleaser
    You care so much about what people think about you, you pretend to be a different person just to make them like you. Why do you do that?! Stop it! BE CONFIDENT about your own fucking personality.
  16. 16.
    Absolutely ace at least one exam
    School is important to you. Do you really need to watch that season of The Office again? No you do not.
  17. 17.
    Wear suncream on your face, hands and neck EVERY SINGLE DAY
  18. 18.
    Donate
    You always feel incredibly guilty when you pass people fundraising on the street or watch sad advertisements on TV. "I'm a poor student," you say, "I have no money," you say. Maybe you would have some if you stopped spending it all at KFC?
  19. 19.
    Learn how to cook some traditional dishes
  20. 20.
    You can do this
    So far, you have had a charmed life. One setback is not the end of the world. I know it feels like it but it won't kill you and don't let it kill you. You can do this!
