Turning 21

I just turned 21 a few weeks ago. In the couple of weeks leading up to it, I kept forgetting it was coming up, seriously just went right over my head. I can’t tell if it was my subconscious trying to block out the fact that I’m getting older, that its time to be an adult, be more responsible, that soon my parents will kick me out. Or that life is so fleeting, passing by so, so quickly like how dare she!... Seriously what’s the deal?! I’ve realized recently that I haven’t been making the most of my life. A lot of you may feel the same way, so what can we do to feel like we're actually living? Writing it down in this blog has actually helped me to self reflect, to realise that I actually have done a lot and have a lot going for myself. Hope this inspires you as a reader.

Here’s my list of “Realistic” goals for this year (as well as the far future)

These are the things I’m most excited about doing in the near and far future! From getting fit to spending less time on my phone, traveling, and more! Think of this as an unfortunately "realistic" bucket list, since we can't really go anywhere at the moment.
