17 Things I Learned While 17 || I’m an ADULT NOW

Hello, friend! Today’s blogspot is an exciting one: I turn EIGHTEEN (18!!!!!) in a few days, and so today, we’re talking about 17 Things I Learned While I was 17!

17 Things I Learned While 17.png

  1. Popsockets are the greatest thing to ever exist.
  2. Don’t ask multiple people if they want to hang out . . . if they’re all free, you have an issue. a big one.
  3. Professional people may appear professional . . . until you stalk their social media
  4. I REALLY LOVE teaching music. Teaching music is awesome.
  5. Driving isn’t that hard. You just have to not step on the brake so hard that the wire breaks, rending the entire car useless.
  6. Getting into troll arguments on twitter is counterproductive and useless . . . unless it’s about homeschooling.
  7. College classes are fun . . . provided you get a good professor, but stILL.
  8. College applications . . . just start them early. For your sanity, for your parents’ sanity, for your dog’s sanity, JUST DO IT.
  9. Spotify is an amazing thing.
  10. I’m old enough to have friends who are married. Not sure how that happened.
  11. E-books are amazing because you don’t have to cart liTERAL books around . . . side effects include staying up until 4am reading
  12. Money doesn’t buy happiness, but . . . it doesn’t hurt either
  13. Money is SO HARD TO GET
  14. DAILY Bible reading is so, SO helpful.
  15. Grades are important. but not thAT important.
  16. Graduation is one of the most exhilarating things ever
  17. It is, in fact, possible, to leave EVERYTHING you’ve ever known and live . . . though maybe not without tears

And that’s it! What’s something you learned recently? Also, e-books–yay or nay?

    Wait…..what are popsockets??? *is a potato when it comes to everything the cool kids are doing nowadays*
    OH MY GOODNESS. “Driving isn’t that hard. You just have to not step on the brake so hard that the wire breaks, rending the entire car useless.” << ARE YOU OKAY????? That sounds AWFUL!!! Also it sounds like something I would totally do and I am now terrified to continue driving. (but seriously, driving is simultaneously fun and terrifying at the same time, lolololol help)

    AND ACK!!! CONGRATULATIONS ON TURNING 18!!!!!

      A popsocket is basically a little handle that attaches to the back of your phone that makes it a lot easier to hold! It saves LIVES.

      hahahaha yeah no . . . that ended . . . poorly
