17 Things About Being 17

Hi hello hola whats up! Yes, I am ending my unplanned blogging hiatus this week (SAT, school & life happened – sorry!) but I’m back this week and I just turned 17! Wow that’s so old, I’m only 3 years away from not being a teenager anymore, yeesh. So, to celebrate, I thought I’d share some words of wisdom from my 17 years of existence. I present to you, 17 things about being 17.

  1. You know a lot of fancy words – or should I say ostentatious words…
  2. … because SAT vocab has partially devoured your soul. Your friends also hate talking to you now, because they don’t understand what you’re saying.IMG_0825
  3. You go running all the time, because school and life is stressful and stomping on pavements feels good…
  4. … and also because your metabolism is hinting at breaking up with you. IMG_0869
  5. A lot of strangers you met 15 minutes ago are suddenly very interested in your future plans…
  6. … and you have no idea what your future looks like, cause c’mon, you cant even decide what flavor of ice cream you want. You’re only 17 –  even your vision board is incomplete!Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 6.52.51 PMScreen Shot 2015-11-22 at 6.52.39 PM
  7. Turns out things you thought you were really good at, you’re not…
  8. … because everyone else is much better than you at it. And that’s okay.
  9. By now you know that life is stupid and it sucks a lot…Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 7.48.56 PMIMG_0770
  10. …but you’ve figured out how to surround yourself with the best people, so you sail through the crummy things like a boss.
  11. You spend a lot of time studying. Your textbooks are actually your one true love, cause they’ll get you to college.IMG_0740IMG_0744
  12. People actually take you seriously now…
  13. Which means you the opportunity to do a lot of cool stuff! (more blog posts about this ‘stuff’ soon!)
  14. You feel like this on the inside sometimes, because you actually have to act mature in certain social situations…IMG_0721
  15. But for the most part you still act 12, and you don’t care what anyone thinks (maturity? whats that?)Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 7.34.46 PMIMG_0780
  16. Random explorations of the internet that come from procrastination have introduced you to a lot of interests you never thought you would have. (I really wish I had a shot of me dramatically watching Kpop… it wouldn’t even be staged)
  17. And lastly, you’ve learnt to be your own queen. Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 7.34.28 PM
