2. Being able to actually cook something that tastes good.


It's tough making that jump from late-night Chinese and $1 pizza slices to ACTUAL food, but you'll be glad you at least learned how to make one good dish. Trust us.

3. Figuring out who your real friends are, and keeping them closer than ever.


Not everyone you go out at night with will be there to have your back when things get tough. But rest assured that a few people out there think the world of you and will always be there when you need them.

7. Decluttering your life.


This applies to everything: Detach yourself from negative relationships, but also just get rid of things that aren't necessary in your life. For example, imagine a wardrobe where all of your clothes were your absolute favorites — how awesome would that be?

8. Letting go of what you can't control.


There's just no point in spending your nights worrying over something that, in the end, you had no control over anyway. Figure out what is in your control, focus wisely, and make life awesome!

9. Getting in the habit of setting aside some time each day to focus on yourself.


Maybe you'll wake up an hour earlier, read a book, and make some coffee, or perhaps you'll give yourself 30 minutes every evening to focus on learning something new. Whatever it is, make it about you!

10. Finding something to do that you like, and then becoming super good at it.


You think you kinda like the guitar, or maybe you really enjoy painting, but never thought you were that good at it. Who cares?! Figure out what you love, and do it incessantly. The results will come, rest assured.

11. Figuring out how not to waste time.


It's so easy to have something you really want to do or become good at, but then procrastinate and find excuses for not having enough time. We only have so much time to take advantage of what life has to offer, so make the best of it!

Good neighbors like State Farm® always have your back, so you can live confidently in the present and in the future.
