Friday the 27th of April 2018 marks my 22nd birthday and in my precious 22-years on this planet, I’ve learnt many life lessons and seen a lot more than most.
I can tell you this already, I shall spend the next year blasting out Taylor Swift’s hit ‘anthem’, 22.
Anyways, my birthday in recent years has always been a bit of a pain as it usually falls just before exam season, sigh! My 21st was spent at Thorpe Park in the only day I took off from revising and dissertation writing during the final year of my degree. However, this year, the world is my oyster and I am yet to make any plans – oops.
But before the partying begins, I thought I’d share with you wisdom-filled 22 lessons that I have learnt in my 22 years.
