Speaking frankly, not all friendships will last through to adulthood. Friends you had growing up stand a higher chance of fading away! This fading process does not mean the relationship ended on bad terms or that you can never be friends again. Adulthood is more time consuming than you may realize.
Other than awaiting graduation, I do not know one thing a teenager looks forward to more than moving out on their own. Teenagers are eager to get out into the world away from the rules and worries of their parents. Staying out late, eating when & what you want, and decorating your place exactly how you want to = The Dream! Unfortunately, I am about to burst that bubble!
My dark eyes and aching back were not my only side effects of lack of sleep. My memory has gotten worse and my ability to stay focused is long gone. Feeling exhausted all day is NOT how I want to spend the rest of my life; especially because I am only 26 years old!

It takes a toll on a person and it can be clearly seen in a person’s appearance, behavior, and their relationships. One of the greatest way to combat this is by building healthy essential habits!
Why is it that when adults recommend things, some of us let it go in one ear and out the other? I will not speak for the majority, but I know some young adults make excessive excuses about why saving is impossible. I believe if we take a deeper look into our spending habits and expenses, it will show the only thing stopping young adults from saving is themselves.
Under the current circumstances; the COVID-19 pandemic, it may seem hard to choose community; but that is not true! Here are just 3 ways you can choose community during this global pandemic...
Adults take time to make these choices; and then when the decision is made, they return to their actions and self-reflect. It helps create a happier and successful life.
