A Girl Named Leney

THE JOURNAL

At Twenty One


Things I know at 21

Things are never as bad as they seem.

Loneliness is character builing. 
It's also a jerk sometimes.

Tomatoes really aren't so bad after all.

If you apologize for the things you did wrong first, the other person will eventually apologize in return.
And if they don't, well, at least you were the bigger person and did all that you needed to.

Along that note, apologizing for the sake of apologizing isn't really apologizing.

Books with pages are much better than books with screens.

Coffee is amazing.

Bunnies are not as nice as they look sometimes.

The things that are most important in life are not actually things.

Adventures don't always have to be at 1 a.m. and on a bridge over a river.

Cooking is not as scary as it looks.
Most of the time.

There is such a thing as having too many high expectations.

Knitting will never get old.

When you are shopping and you are indecisive about something, don't buy it.
You will regret it.

Taco Bell is only good after 11p.m.

No matter how often you have Chinese food you will always forget that it makes you sick by the time you eat it again.

Less is more.
Especially when it comes to makeup.

It's okay to eat a whole funnel cake by yourself.
Once a year.

There are more people who have your back than you realize.

There are also more people who love you than you realize.

You aren't going to like that florescent orange dress as much as you thought you did at the store.

Whatever reason you are voluntarily giving up sleep for probably isn't as great as a good nights sleep.

You will inevitably get sick if you don't get enough sleep.

There is always someone who wants/is willing to cheer you up when you're down.

It's not the things you get or experiences you have or places you go that are important, but the people you are with.

When you feel like you have nothing, you have God.
And that's everything.





21 is going to be a great year.
I can feel it.
