25 things I know about myself at 25

This post was actually pending for a while. But just in my brain, there are no requests… yet (I’ll get there, I’ll be that famous, no worries). I don’t know why I was postponing it though. Oh yes I do. I like sleeping more.

I became 25 this month (took me a while, huh) and people keep asking me how it feels like. Quite frankly, it doesn’t feel like anything changed, but I guess being 25 is all about what you’ve built up for, while being 24. I hope that line sounded smart to you, because I seriously tried. With no further ado, let’s get into it, shall we?

1. Reading Marie Claire is not pointless. That’s where I learned about the magic of coconut oil. Like seriously. Best sh*t ever.

2. I like cats, too. End of story.

3. I learned that “sorry” is not a word for everything I do. Sorry for being great. Not.

4. It’s really okay to be blunt, as long as you mind your own business and don’t go ahead hurting people with words that might just be in your brain.

5. Dedicating your time to hobbies is hard. I don’t know how other people can write 2 blogs/week or take up crafting classes. Teach me your ways, Martha Stewarts.

6. It’s all going to suck at some point. Because life is sometimes shitty and you just have to deal with it, and it’s going to happen a lot.

7. Making money isn’t everything. I mean, it’s good for buying stuff but if you wake up at 40 and realize you haven’t done anything but working for the dolla` dolla` bills, don’t blame it on the boogie. It’s not the boogie, it’s you.

8. I’m thankful there hasn’t been a “worst day ever” in my life yet, and that’s why I spend my time trying not to have one of those days.

9. Days in which you don’t even put pants on are awesome. Resting your brain through sleeping and going on Tumblr are perfect, trust me.

10. Being productive is also awesome. Nothing compares to the feeling of achieving.

11. Still learning how not to sell myself cheap. And no, not in Red District style (even though that’s a job too). Being capable and great at what you do matters and no one should give you less than you deserve.

12. It’s okay if you haven’t peaked in high school. Lord knows it was a very confusing time for everyone, but there’s hope.

13. I have learned that my parents are real people. Meaning they are not there just to put you through college and everything. They have hobbies, interests, a life, and they could become cool friends when you get older, so keep them close and don’t shut them out.

14. Letting go of friends is okay. You grow apart, it’s part of life. If you can’t find the answer to “why are we still friends?”, something’s not quite spot on.

15. Getting advice and giving advice is not actually the best solution for when you have a problem. Everybody’s subjective and will only relate to similar problems that happened to them, not to you. Since every experience is different, act according to your gut. Even if it’s going to blow, take responsibility for your actions.

16. Listening to Taylor Swift at age 25 is okay.

17. Lipstick is awesome. Sorry, dudes. But hey, guys can try it too. Why double standard everything, right?

18. Health is really important. One of my biggest fears is getting an incurable disease, because in this day and age, anything can make you sick. I don’t know why I just gave that away, but I guess I needed a self reminder to try and be healthier.

19. You can have regrets at 25. And no, I’m not talking about not eating that ice cream bowl at brunch. Life really gets real in your 20’s and like I said before, it sometimes sucks.

20. Drunk texting is one of my most peculiar habits. I really try to keep it together in general, but hey, I guess my brain really likes tequila.

21. Friends are really the family you make for yourself. Choosing my friends has been a challenge many times, but I think I got my head around it now.

22. You might actually like some people, but they might not feel the same about you. That’s also okay. And yes, life sucks (again?!), but at least you know where you stand. I don’t just mean romantic relationships here.

23. Jeans are the best pants ever invented. Seriously.

24. It’s not okay to grow too old too soon.

25. Eat good food.

The end.

The rants of a 25-years-old teenager

If there’s one thing I know about myself is that I didn’t grow up just yet. I’m still a silly girl that blushes when she gets a compliment and denies it immediately instead of saying “thanks” like a normal 24 year old woman would do. Or would she? I don’t know. I don’t understand women either. Hashtag b****es be crazy.

However, this is not about compliments or anything like that. I’m just at a point where I’m trying to figure things out but I know for sure that everyone does it no matter the age, even though there are so many expectations people have of me and young people in general. Sit up straight, take your elbows off the table, don’t talk with your mouth full, don’t burp in public, don’t pick your nose, stop pointing with your finger. So. Many. EXPECTATIONS, amirite?

tumblr_m9je58g5hj1qzqdem

I’m just talking about all these expectations of how I should have a stable job that could develop a career (OK, I’m on it). That I should be buying an apartment and stop paying rent (WHY?). That I should think about what I’ll be doing in the next 5 years (uhm, videos on Dubsmash, d’ooh!). That I should have an opinion about everything (OK, fine, Rihanna doesn’t always deserve to be on the best dressed section). That I should give up my dream of becoming a YouTube celebrity and focus on “some real goals” (NO.). That I should stop pointing with my finger at things (but you’re not looking where I’m telling you to look!).

One day, our heads are going to explode of so many thoughts caused by our judgmental consciousness that Steven Spielberg will start crying because he didn’t get the time to make a Vine out of it, I tell you. Or post it on Meerkat, we’re evolving over here (also, you’re welcome, I educated you a little).

One moment it’s “don’t worry, you have your life ahead of you”, the next one is “so, your resume says you had 5 jobs already?… Isn’t this doubting?” Yeah, it is doubting. Like that Hawaiian shirt you’re wearing. What is this, casual Friday? (That was me talking to a virtual interviewer, FYI).

I’ll be 25 in 2 weeks. And I don’t know where I’m at. All I want to do is finish reading Amy Poehler’s book, listen to The Weeknd, scroll on Tumblr and visit London. I’m serious about these 4 things being on the top of my priority list. What does that say about me? Doesn’t matter.

tumblr_n1qdnzJoHv1rqfhi2o1_500

Actually, the cold always bothered me. But I do love Olaf ^_^.

OK fine, I’ll stop ranting. No top 10 things I learned while being 25 anymore. I have a cat now and it takes up all of my time for blogging. Just kidding, it doesn’t, I just don’t want to write.

Byyyeeeeee.

10 signs you don’t need to read the signs

Marie Claire is really starting to get on my nerves and I still like their page on Facebook for some reason (a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do). They had a pretty interesting article that I didn’t read (of course), called “15 signs you are NOT a morning person”. Wait. What? How can you tell someone who is not a morning person that they are not a morning person? Makes sense to you? Because it most certainly doesn’t make any sense to me. I know I’m not a morning person and I don’t need 15 signs for it. I JUST KNOW, MARIE CLAIRE. I JUST KNOW.

But let’s give them pretty girls a break. Unfortunately I can’t come up with 15 signs I hate Marie Claire. What is really frustrating about these articles on the web is that they keep making stuff up that we actually don’t need in our lives. But when you read them it’s like “OMG, that’s so me”. Some of them do get it right, I’m not complaining. But I don’t need 20 signs I’m addicted to Facebook, I know I am. Or 5 reasons I didn’t iron my blouse this morning (because I knew I was going to work by bus, that’s why).

So here they are. My 10 signs you don’t really need to read that “x signs you are actually reading that shitty article”. I realize this phrase was a little hard to read, but bear with me.

1. Oh. My. God. One of the signs actually applies to you. One out of 100. From an article you didn’t even take time to read.

2. You will become paranoid and figure out you are depressed by saying “yes” to every sign, even if it’s a Buzzfeed gif list about why Robin Williams was the greatest.

3. Well waddya know, you actually are a girl. Thank God for Marie Claire telling you that in 15 signs, amirite?

4. Your boyfriend comes to tell you he cheated on you. I think it’s pretty obvious you don’t need to “Find out how to tell if he’s cheating”, *cough cough*.

5. If you’ve just taken a selfie, don’t bother going over that Elle article telling you “10 signs you enjoy taking selfies”. Guilty as charged.

6. Did your device decide it’s time to shutdown or restart when you were just about to read “10 signs you’re addicted to Facebook”? Must be a *sign* from above.

7. Magic number seven here is here to tell you that if you’re really into apple pie, you don’t need 10 more signs to know. Same goes with coffee, vitamin water, saltines at 1 am or whatever you’re addicted to. You just keep doing you.

8. Katy Perry knows how a plastic bag feels like and I bet that song is just another “10 signs you are a firework” article at its core. And I don’t really think anyone has ever known what a plastic bag ever felt like.

Yes, I said ever twice. To emphasize.

9. “10 signs you’re a feminist”. Number one: do you need someone to tell you what you are or can you stand your ground and explain it yourself?

10. You got over teenage Britney, because why the hell would you need someone to “hit you one more time” in order to give you a sign? … Beats me.

Whew, I got kinda musical in this one, huh.
