Meeting new people and doing what you want. Going out often, drinking excessively, and doing very stupid things with (hopefully) very few consequences. Having relatively few binding commitments, whilst having the liberty and resources to immerse and challenge yourself intellectually in whatever really interests you most.
I can't life getting much better than that, though for the sake of myself and pretty much everybody else on this forum, I hope it does.
At 22, I have to say 17 was a great year. The year I lost my virginity ( ) and really discovered nightlife. Traveled quite a lot with (the girl who was then) my best friend. I was a romantic optimist, yet my heart didn't belong to anyone. Life was good.
The girl and I are not close anymore, I live abroad and I'm already a bit fed up with clubbing. Will try my best to make this year amazing, but summer is starting with heartache so
As others mentioned, the year I have a baby
i always hope that the next year will always be a bit better than then last.
but then again my life feels very suffocating and always has done ever since i can remember, cos i have a helicopter mum and i am a cotton wool kid. so ultimately i think im going to be happiest when i finally feel some real independance and hopefully tht will either be when i start college in sept this year or 2014 when i start uni.
or maybe when i find true love... whatever comes first!
