25 Things I Haven't Learned in 25 Years

Well folks, today is my 25th birthday. 25. Honestly, I can't really believe I'm 25. A quarter of a century. This is the last big birthday for a while. And it is the last exciting birthday period. And what's so exciting about it? Well, my car insurance rate goes down and in most online surveys I get to move up a level to the 25-30 age range. Yay! But in all seriousness, I am so thankful for another year of life. 24 was pretty great. No complaints. Here's to making 25 even better! I want to celebrate my birthday in 2 ways on the blog today. And by that I mean YOU get to celebrate!
First of all, ALL MY AD SPOTS ARE 50% OFF!!! Go to my sponsor page and use promo code: HAPPYBIRTHDAYTOME at check out. Good till midnight tonight (1/8)
And secondly, I bring you 25 things I HAVEN'T learned in 25 years! I got this idea from Helene almost a year ago and loved it so much that I've kept it stashed away in my mind. And how perfect is it that my word for 2015 is LEARN??

  1. How to take something off the shelf in the shower without everything else falling.
  2. How to cook dinner every night.
  3. Not to bring coffee to church despite how many times I've spilled it in the auditorium.
  4. To stop caring so much about what other people think of me.
  5. To trust God with my life and not get anxious when something comes up. But I'm really working on this.
  6. Why God loved the world so much that he sent His Son to die for us.
  7. Not to go to the post office on my lunch break because it will take longer than the hour I get for lunch.
  8. To cut back on coffee.
  9. To do the dishes right after dinner.
  10. How to love all people unconditionally as Christ did. But I'm trying.
  11. The love of a mother for her child. But I hope to learn this one day.
  12. To go to bed early.
  13. How to get out of bed when my alarm first goes off.
  14. To eat breakfast when I first wake up. It slips my mind until I'm hungry a few hours later.
  15. How to split up holiday time with my family and my in-laws.
  16. How to not worry so much about that last one.
  17. How to make soup on the stove top without burning it. But I'm a pro at crock-pot soup!
  18. How to be funny and friendly without being or saying something awkward.
  19. Almost anything outside my field of study.
  20. Most things inside my field of study.
  21. To appreciate foreign films and other stupid ones that always win a bunch of Oscars.
  22. To face big spiders like the ones in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. I always close my eyes for the whole scene.
  23. How to truly express to Pearson how much I love him.
  24. To do the laundry before it gets piled up really high.
  25. How to keep my eyes from leaking when I need to cry. How do some people keep from ugly crying in public so well?
Some of these are a little embarrassing, I must admit. But I think some of them I'll never learn and not many other people ever do either.
What things have you not learned yet?
Thanks for reading!
