As I turned 23 on Wednesday, and besides drinking far too much bubbles and devouring birthday cake, I reflected on everything I had learnt and how much I continue to learn on this crazy roller coaster called life. I discovered Fanta zero tastes just as good (if not better, controversial?) as regular Fanta, I have far too many embarrassing drunken stories and hangovers do get worse the older you get. I have gained and lost friends in the same year, trusted the wrong people and stayed in relationships I really didn’t want to be in; and I’ve come to realise that it’s not selfish to make time for yourself.

This is an article I wrote on my Lifestyle and Personal Development blog, Girl Who Writes, when I turned 23. It is a more personal post than what I usually write, but it outlines 23 things I have learnt in my 23 years on this little planet.

Reflecting on experiences and providing life hacks I have picked up along the way, it portrays a more casual and chatty writing style to my work.


  • Providing advice and knowledge I have picked up in my 23 years (from what I can remember).
  • Giving tips and guidance on navigating life in your twenties.
  • Creating a fun, easy-digestible article with personality.
