On 8th July, 2018 my 20th birthday, I expected to feel another way. Nineteen to 20 is a big leap, after all — no more “How are you still a teenager?!” when I revealed my age (I started my 1st year of college at 19- I changed my kindergarten thrice, if that explains it?); no more pubescent meltdowns; no more adolescent anguish or random pimples on my chin. Right?
Wrong. I felt pretty much alike the previous day. And people hang about shocked by my age. I still cry about stupid stuff sometimes. I’m peevish on a weekly basis, and my zits didn’t magically peter out that day (but wouldn’t that be nice?).
In the months since turning 20, however, I think I’ve learned quite a bit about life. Or rather, I’ve reflected on my experiences more thoughtfully and have drawn inferences. Here are 20 important things I know. Some are orations whereas some are musings which sometime or the other, you too must’ve scribbled on the last pages of your notebooks. Hope you enjoy reading, cheers!
