You look really good right now! Take more pictures! Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed The pictures may seem dumb to you now, but you'll want them later. 2. It's going to take longer for you going to recover from being sick. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Get ready to start taking better care of your body. Don't use up all your sick days on vacations. 3. Most people who seem like they know what they're doing are faking it. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed So it's okay if you feel clueless. A lot of adulthood is pretending like you know what you're doing. 4. Your acne isn't going to go away because you're older. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Sorry. 5. If you end up not doing what you went to school for, it isn't a bad thing. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Your education is just a stepping stone to whatever you end up doing. It's still valuable, even if it's not in the way you anticipated it. 6. Things will make you cry way easier than they used to. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Weddings, movies, songs, commercials... the floodgates are opening. 7. You're going to enjoy hanging out with your parents way more than you did as a teenager. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed You might actually become (*GASP*) friends. 8. You're going to start getting weird aches and pains and you'll never know why! Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed If you go to the doctor they will tell you "You're old now!" 9. Get excited about not having to hang out with anyone you don't want to. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed You won't be trapped into a group of people just because you go to school with them anymore. 10. The friendships that really matter will sustain themselves over time. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Don't panic. If you are important to each other, you will find a way to meet halfway, even if you see each other infrequently. 11. There are some relationships and friendships that are not worth holding onto. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed If something becomes toxic, don't be afraid to let it go. The world is big and you will find new people, people better suited for you. 12. Menstruating will become a much shittier experience. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Stock up on Advil. If you're wondering why you're even more depressed than usual, check the calendar. 13. Get a bed frame. Stop trying to be a hero. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed Yeah, okay, you don't NEED it, but it's easier to get out of bed when it's not sitting on the ground covered in dirt, okay? 14. You don't suddenly switch over to becoming an adult one day. Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed It happens very slowly. There will be some parts of you that never grow up. 15. Healthcare deductibles are horrible and make no sense. Seriously, why would anyone ever invent this? Maritsa Patrinos / BuzzFeed You're going to have to figure that crap out. Good luck.
