Today is my birthday and I am turning another year older, this year I am hitting the big 23. The years go so quickly that it feels like just yesterday I was completing my GCSE’s and learning to drive, oh no wait, that was a whole 7 years ago, WHAT! I do find growing up scary and I do sometimes wish I could turn back and re-live my younger years but then I realise that I wouldn’t be where I am today if I did that and I certainly wouldn’t be writing this post.
A year of being 22 taught me a lot of new things, new ways to go about life and how not to really care about what anyone else thinks, at least I think. I don’t feel like this year has been significant in any way, although I was a bridesmaid for the first time in my life and did discover that I will soon become an Auntie for the first time too, which is super exciting. Although I am still living at home and I am totally single, I do feel more adult-like and I am growing up, slowly, so here are 22 things I have learnt in my year of being 22, I’m so gutted I can’t sing Taylor Swift anymore.
