1. Tell that person how much you love them
This is an obvious one, yet somehow we still haven’t quite figured it out. We don’t spend enough time saying how much people mean to us. Don’t be afraid to be an expresser of your emotions. For all you know, that person may feel the same, and was just waiting for you to say something first. Tell that person before they end up with someone else, before they move cities, or before they pass away.
2. Learn how to parallel park
Women have a reputation for being the worst parallel parkers, and to be completely honest with you, I probably would agree. I have seen some hideous parallel parks in my day, but I’m thankful for a father who taught me well. Ladies, learn how to parallel park! Think of all the parking opportunities you're going to be missing out on because you would rather park vertically!
3. Go on an extended overseas adventure!
Seriously, it’s not going to always be as easy to go travelling when you're older (and maybe have a family). While you’re young, go travelling! I know a handful of people who say that they are going to do their big OE when they get married, that’s cool, but what say you don’t get married till 30, or don’t get married at all (SHOCK HORROR!). Life is now, it doesn’t begin when you get married, and plus, who says you can’t have two OEs anyway!?
4. Start exercising
It’s actually a lot harder to motivate yourself and have enough energy to exercise if you are overweight. Just because you aren’t gaining weight now, doesn’t mean you won’t later! By getting into good exercising habits, you’re setting yourself up for a healthy lifestyle and decreasing the effects of natural weight gain with age. Don’t wait until you have increasing weight to begin exercising! Start now!
5. Go to your favourite artist’s concert or to that music festival you love!
Festivals and bands don’t last forever. Example: Parachute Music Festival. If you really love a particular band or artist, go to their concert! For all you know they might not return to your country, or they could split, retire or go on a hiatus, and you may never get to see them live in concert again! Don’t regret the opportunities that come your way, some of them really are once-in-a-lifetime.
6. Stop being angry
Sometimes we get angry over insignificant situations and people, but is there really any point? I mean sure there are situations where it makes sense to be angry. But holding onto that anger and refusing to forgive the ones that hurt you the most doesn’t achieve anything. Be slow to anger and quick to forgive
7. Stop crushing on the girl/guy that is never going to feel the same
Let’s be honest, if they’re never going to like you, then you are really just waiting your emotions on someone that will never return the feelings. What happens if a really great guy or girl came into your life but you never noticed them because you were too busy pining over someone else?
8. Go skinny-dipping
While you are young and carefree, go skinny-dipping in a public place with your friends! According to my research, (yes, it was funny), younger people seemed more willing to skinny-dip in public places with their friends than older people. But that’s a generalisation, I’m sure there are always going to be exceptions. I definitely know people that will most likely still be skinny-dipping in older age, as they do now- you know who you are ;)
