2014 is over, which means i'm now 22 years old, creeping away from my 21 ... *let's pray*
I wouldn't say that i have been through a lot this year because you never know what people has been through ... But today i wanna give "Life Advice" for those who just stepping into their 21st! I should be qualified to do that right?' xD I will narrow it down to only 10 pieces, okay?' Hehe ...
1. Save Money.
I know! Your mum has been nagging you about the same thing (almost everyday) and how much is your bank account balance?' Nil. Nil is the answer from the majority of these young ages. Normal. Because you can't stop thinking that you have already run out of clothes, bags, or shoes and whatsoever. Or you just can't resist shopping. Trust me! You want to save it down. I will tell you why.
Because your bank balance says a lot about your loan credibility when you are applying loan. Housing loan or any loan. No strong balance equal to NO LOAN and NO TRAVEL with your bestie.
2. Is Okay To Be Single
I thought i'm gonna end 2014 with my new found boyfriend but ...
It is not happening even now. Don't rush into relationship and don't settle for less because of loneliness. Great thing comes to those who waits.
Give time some time.
3. Get Higher Salary Job
You may think that i still young and i haven't really know what to do in the future so just settle for some easy job like "Admin". Some people once settle, they tend to stick with it. Til forever. Due to inertia. You don't want that ...
Find a more challenging and exciting job. It is good for your self when you decided to apply any loan ...
4. Think Long-Term-ly
You don't want to think because you are young and you wanna venture all out and do stupid decision that will ruin your whole life. As "stupid thing", it depends on circumstances.
Pregnancy is okay. As long as you are still moving toward your goal.
5. You have Monday Blue because ...
Literally because you don't like or not excited about what you are doing right now.
It is TRUE that if you like what you are doing, there wouldn't be any BLUE ...
6. Set Long-Term Career Goal
You are no longer a teenager or something like that.
Sooner or later, you have to be financially independent from all of your previous financial supporter(s). Of course, if your parents still giving you "pocket money", you are lucky but you don't want take too much out from them anymore. It is kind of a shame. Sorry to say that.
It is. After setting your career's goal in the term of 3 or 5 years, then work toward it. Don't let money distract you from your path.
7. Make More Friends
Connection is really a vital part of the success but of course it also depends on what is your career and some prefer to work alone or not social butterfly enough. It is okay. But try to... It helps.
8. Appreciate the Chance of Studying
If you are a student and get a flying color for your academia result. When people employ you, of course it is just a paper and i have to admit that exam is actually just a test of your memory and for those who having bad memory, sorry. But still it boost your chance to get an interview.
If you are working full-time, my advise is that you keep pursuing your study. Via night classes.
It will definitely be another factor for your promotional chance.
9. Time to Grow Up
As "Grow Up", i mean get rid of your "Princess" temper. A bad manner or attitude get you no where. Of course, be more open-minded. Don't simply get angry because of someone making you wait so long or so ...
Just grow up ...
10. Spend More Time with Family
Making more friends don't mean hanging out with them all the time. Family is the most important element of your life. They will always be there for you no matter ups or downs. Your friends may not ...
Don't take them for granted. Appreciate what they have done and do for you.
One last thing ...
Hone and practice your English.
Do whatever you want and enjoy being 21 years old.
Thanks for reading.
Have A Nice Day ... ❤
