Turning Twenty

forever september, turning twenty, lifestyle, chatty post, beauty, fashionWell, would you look at that, tomorrow is my birthday. And I’m turning 20…how on earth did that happen and where did the time go?! I honestly still feel 15 (albeit, I still look 15) but seriously, how am I heading into my 20’s?

I know 20 isn’t old at all, in fact its still so young and I know I have my whole life ahead of me. However, I can’t help but feel a bit weird about saying the word twenty. I’m finally saying goodbye to my teens, which is a lil bit sad really *plays not nineteen forever in the background whilst sobbing*. Those teen years shaped me to be the person I am today, I did a hell of a lot of growing and learning over those years too. Many friendships were formed and broken, I felt my first heartbreak, I finally figured out my own style and realised you should always be YOU and never follow the crowd.

When I look back over those years, I really wouldn’t change a thing. I spent the ages 13-15 hanging out with friends, doing all the dumb/funny young teen things you’re supposed to do ya know?! I also spent those days being a massive One Direction fangirl and lord knows I’d do anything to go back to that. Although I’m no longer friends with any of the girls I was back then, I’m so happy I shared those experiences with them. I genuinely do miss being a carefree teen sometimes, when the only thing I had to worry about was what hairstyle I was gonna do for school the next day!

Despite missing those days sometimes, I’m happy to be where I am today. I’m able to earn my own money, study a subject I love at uni and have people around me that I love and care for and have that reciprocated. I’m really looking forward to my 20s and all it has to offer, whatever that may be. Hopefully more travelling, graduating university and maybe even buying a house. There are quite a few things I’d love to happen in my 20s, but who knows, I’m excited nonetheless. Anyway, heres to two decades on this planet!
