Hello readers! I hope everyone is having a good holiday and enjoying the long weekend. My weekend consisted of sleeping, homework, and some fun. Happy Labour Day and it is also my birthday.  I am turning 21 and I can't believe that I'm turning 21. It doesn't seem that long ago I was turning 13.  Today I wanted to share 21 lessons that I have learned. These are not in order of importance.
