24 Things in 24 Years

So this weekend gone, I turned the big 24, and for some reason this particular age is giving me constant bursts of terror and anxiety, as lets be honest, I spend most of my nights rewatching TV series, rather than out creating memories. (no regrets) (ok maybe a few)

I will also be publishing my next letter to myself in the future and reviewing the one I wrote last year, but I thought I’d start with a very generic, ’24 things I’ve learnt in 24 years.’ Some of these are great advice, and please could everyone remind me to follow them once in a while, it would really help a girl out.

23. No single person should be responsible for your happiness.
