A couple of weeks ago it was my birthday, and I turned 22 years old. That was the first birthday that I'd ever spent away from my family home, and the first birthday where I genuinely felt older. To me, 22 is a 'real' age. I may not be mature but I feel like an adult now. So I thought what better way to mark it than to do a post about some of the life lessons I think I've managed to learn in the past 22 years.
