Hello there beautiful ladies 🙂
A few months ago I turned 21 and have just come to the realization that life is too short. So if you could go back to your 21 year old self, what would you say to her? What is the one thing that you wish you had done? Any advice, thoughts and opinions are welcomed 🙂 xx

@Sugar Plum.x: party hard, love harder and be strong no matter the circumstance don’t lose yourself to anyone or anything!

Well, when I was 21, I met FI so I wouldn’t change that. The advice I would give to my 21 year old self is to not party so much and stick with school. I was going out way too much and ended up withdrawing from school each semester. I ended up having to take more credits than needed to graduate and bring my GPA up and overall it took me 6 years to get a 4 year degree because I had dropped out so many semesters.

Break up with that douche. Get into school and work harder, and go into HR instead!

i’d tell myself: get away from your boyfriend. he’s not going to change. you deserve better, you deserve happy and safe, not abuse.
and please live your life instead of sitting at home.

Just Just left 21 a couple weeks ago. I’d go out more, meet more people. I’d end toxic friendships sooner and keep in touch with good friends better.

Don’t get that brand new car that you really can’t afford in two years! Use that money to travel instead. Work out and eat right! You have so much more energy now. Yes, YOU CAN RUN! Stop drinking so much. All those calories add up.
Other than that, I have a history degree that I don’t use but that lead to teaching that I no longer do but caused me to meet my husband through another teacher who no longer teaches as well so I wouldn’t change that!

I’d tell her to leave the sorority, focus hard on herself and school first, and take that prerequisite to get into business school instead!

Honestly, I probably wouldn’t change anything :-/ I did well in school, but still had fun. I had already met my FI. I got a degree in something that was useful and found a job. I travelled. I think the only thing I would tell myself is after graduating college – don’t move back to the east coast. I wish I had stayed in my college town (Austin, Tx). Though honestly I probably wouldn’t have found a job (or as good of one) if I had stayed down there.

I would have dumped the toxic boyfriend I was with, gone to law school and given less of a shit about making other people happy and would just focus on myself.

I’d tell me that you didn’t miss out on anything and there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
I was really sad at 21 because I was so busy with school and work that I never partied with my friends and my boyfriend at the time and I broke up because we never saw each other.
I met DH and got a great job because of my hard work though. Some of my partying friends are still stuck looking for jobs–totally worth it 🙂

Get an internship or Co-op because it’s HARD to get that first real job
treasure your family and the GOOD friendships.

Don’t let that girl move in. She will destroy your friendships and emotionally abuse you…probably not applicable to anyone else. As I’m 23 I don’t have a whole lot of perspective yet.
