After I turned 20, this post was inevitable. 

After all, I've done 18 Things to Know Before Turning 18 and 19 Things to Know Before Turning 19. So this post, 20 Things, is the obvious sequel in the series.

Much to my displeasure, I can't call myself a 'teen' anymore. Too old now to be a youth, now a young adult. I grimace at the word. Though I haven't felt like a youth or a young adult for sometime. Rather a decrepit without the maturity, clinging onto remnants of past selves.

Nevertheless, the decrepit still has some wisdom. At least, claimed but rarely true. Here are 20 Things to Know Before Turning 20...

5 . You can delay the inevitable, but it is still the inevitable.

6 . What seems right on paper can be so wrong in life.

7 .  It is righteous to forgive, but do so in your own time.

11 . You will love others. You will love many. It's okay to love.

13 . There are some stories best left as secrets.

14 . Your friends are idiots. You're an idiot. Revel in your idiocy.

15 . Don't be racist, don't be sexist. Don't be hatin'. Call people out when they are.

16 . Some will love you and some will hate you. You don't need to reciprocate those feelings.

17 . You are yours before you are anyone's anything.

18 . Never stop finding fun in the most un-fun of times.

Well, there goes another melodramatic post.

It seems imminent I become emotional in August. More emotional than usual, I may add. I was like this when I turned 18, and likewise at 19. The posts around those times are proof. This is no exception. Encapsulating my mindset for the year before and the year to come.

For better or worse.

What is something you want to know before turning 20?
