To use my favorite cliche: You’re only young once. Here’s what I’m going to embrace while I’m still young:
Cutoff jean shorts: Every summer I think, maybe this is the last summer that it’s appropriate for me to wear cut off jean shorts. And every spring I think, ehh one more summer. This spring is no exception. I’ll be rockin the jean shorts proudly all summer long. In my closet, that’s where jeans go to die. And no, I don’t care if they are mildly trashy.
The occasional binge drinking: Sometimes it’s just fun to have one too many and giggle a lot with your friends. Recently we drank beers and played Cards Against Humanity. Google it. Buy it. You won’t regret it. It’s a card game that is just like Apples to Apples but is wildly inappropriate. So no, drinking isn’t the best for my heath. I don’t even do it every weekend anymore. But every once in a while, this is bound to happen.
Driving a car that I didn’t pay for: My grandmother gave me a super sweet ’99 Honda Accord with very low mileage. Now why would I give that up and take on a car payment? That thing will run like a champ for another 100k. I’m just not a car person so even though the paint looks a little questionable, I’m keeping this car for years to come (even when I can actually afford a car payment).
Having a boyfriend: Some people my age are ready for marriage. And that’s great! I’m just not one of them. I’ve got a great guy by my side and I don’t think either of us anticipate marriage any time soon. So for now, I’m going to enjoy having a boyfriend, having my own bedroom that’s just mine, and having alone time. And that’s A-Okay.
