Things that a twenty year old should know



You are never too old for cartoons. You think Spongebob is the coolest underwater sponge ever. You love minions so much. You still find your eyes glued to the television every time Looney Tunes Babies come up. You still laugh every time Jerry does tricks at Tom. Your favorite channels for all time is Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. You do that. I do that, too. We're twenty and we still love cartoons. Nuff said.

It's okay to be single at 20. Have you ever been jealous to 15 year olds having boyfs and girlfriends? (If yes, don't worry. I do, too. Lol!) But mah ladies, twenty is young! This is where we should spend time for ourselves before we give or spend it to somebody else. You're just about to start living. Perhaps, Mr. Bautista is right - that there is more to life than love. Learn to discover and know yourself first, and when the time comes, you'll be ready to show and share it to your other half, whoever that is.

Chocolates don't really cause pimples. Admit it, we all love chocolate and perhaps one of the reasons that most women try hard to avoid it is that they're afraid to further trigger breakouts. You can't really blame the sinful taste (and ingredients) of chocolate as a cause. But can something as delicious as chocolate really cause a dreadful breakout? 
"Conclusion: False. Chocolate cannot be directly faulted for breakouts, but high sugar/high-fat foods (which chocolate has in spades) can increase the body's sebum production, which then create inflammatory responses in the body -- sometimes in the form of acne. Additionally, this myth is partly rooted in coincidence: many women's craving and consumption of chocolate coincides with breakouts. To stay on the safe side, load up on fruits and vegetables, and when you need a chocolate fix, try to stick to dark over white or milk varieties." (Source)
Height doesn't matter. Unless you're applying to be a flight attendant or at a work that requires a certain height, then it doesn't matter. It's not your fault. It's not anybody's fault. Let's just be thankful that we were born complete (two arms and legs, ten fingers and toes). Besides, it's just a damn number and what matters is all about how much you can do. Agree or not?


It's time to start saving. If you already have a bank account and good amount of money in it, congratulations darling! If not, then you should probably grab an application form and sign up for a bank account as in now! Or maybe you can start with a piggy bank and save up your remaining allowances in your last couple of semesters. Trust me, you're going to need it in the future.

It's okay to lose. You should probably know by now that bringing home the bacon is not always what matters most. I'm not saying that it's not important. What I mean is that, sometimes, it's not about the recognition or the awards. It's about the experience, the new friends, doing your best and letting everyone know that you're a good sport. Sometimes, we need to lower our expectations and let other people shine, too.


You should start taking care of yourself. You should have probably done this years ago, but then again, twenty is still young. Take care of yourself and do it now! Eat healthy, stop eating junk, start a daily exercise routine, mind your posture, take care of your skin, never skip breakfast. These maybe little things that you think are easy to do, but let me tell you, they're not. You have to make a habit out of it. We all want to be healthy and live a long life. If we do, then we should start as early as today, cause years from now, you're not the only who's gonna need yourself.
