A Little Link Love.
Earlier this week, I read Maggie Mason’s 20 Things I Wish I’d Known at 20.
It rocked my socks. It’ll rock your socks too. I swear, it gives Mary Schmich (the author of Wear Sunscreen) a run for her money.
I’m not too far off from being 20 myself, but I can certainly relate to so many of these things.
One thing I wish I knew at 20? I wish I knew just how important it was to keep in regular contact with people from the different stages of my life. Reconnecting on Facebook is great, but it’s hard to keep up when you’re not around. Perhaps there is a twinge of regret in moving across the country, but in reality, I wish I was less stubborn about picking up the phone or sending a personal email instead of just blogging something as a mass communication for all to see. There are so many great people I’ve known and I regret not being there to celebrate momentous occasions and give them a hug when they’re feeling down.
What do you wish you’d known at 20?
