34 Things I Learned Before Turning 34

Well, it’s almost here. I will be turned 34 in 8 days. I can’t believe how quickly it’s come. So, in honor of my 34th birthday, I have listed 34 things I learned by the age of 34. I must warn you, some of these are going to be really serious and some of them will be a little less serious. Nevertheless, these are things I learned. Now of these are in no particular order except #1. I felt that was the most important one.

34. You’re not guaranteed a good career/job after you graduate college.
