5. Spend Time Alone To “Find Yourself”
One nice thing about being young is that a lot of us are unattached — no kids, no career, no mortgages to pay. It’s the perfect time to wander off into the wilderness to find yourself. Or, ya know, stay at home with the curtains pulled while you figure things out. In fact, spending time alone has many psychological benefits. So go ahead and revel in your time alone with the knowledge that you’re doing something good for yourself.
6. Learn How To Do A Tarot Reading
Tarot cards are pretty darn interesting, whether you enjoy them for their spookiness, or you simply like flipping a card over in the morning to set your intentions for the day. However you view tarot card reading, it can’t be denied that it’s a cool skill to have up your sleeve. I still look back in absolute awe at the time someone read my oracle cards. Being able to give someone that kind of experience is totally worth it, and the patience you learned from learning the deck is something you’ll carry around with you for the rest of your life.
7. Try Every Bizarre Food You Can Get Your Hands On
I used to be the type of person who didn’t want their foods to touch on a plate, but now I’m wolfing down fare from around the world with the best of them. Trying new foods when you’re young is not only important so you have an expanded palate for the rest of your days, but also because it’s next to near impossible to upset your youthful digestive tract. So get out there and eat that weird thing on a stick, or that prickly fruit you don’t recognize in the grocery store. You have nothing to lose.
8. Perform In Front Of A Crowd
Most people dream of doing something on stage, whether it be playing in a band, performing standup comedy, or acting in a play. And there’s no reason you shouldn’t give it a try with all the open mics out there. Any time I’ve ever done something on stage, I’ve noticed that life’s little embarrassments seem like a walk in the park. When I know I survived standing under bright lights in front of an audience, I feel like I can survive anything. So go out there and give it a try — you’ll be so glad you did.
Take advantage of being young and free, and try out some of the more bizarre things life has to offer.
