We're here to help with everything from taxes to tattoos, don't worry... You got this!

1. Most Cars have an arrow on the fuel gage that tells you what side of the car the gas tank is on

2. Time Management: Remember when the night before a big project was due, you’d think was a perfect time to organize your closet, scrub your shower and catch up on old emails and texts? Yeah well those days should be over, it’s time to get it together, no more all-nighters, its time for sleep. Get your stuff done well in advance. 

3. How to negotiate. From job interviews and pay-rises, to why you're sending your coffe back at Starbucks. Know your limit (and worth) and if you're not happy with the offer or service given, make it known (with a polite and charming smile, of course).

4. How to do your taxes. While we're at it, that includes how much you still owe on your student loan too. If you're unsure or don't have the foggiest clue of where to start, find somebody who does and befriend them/feed them pizza 'till you get it. It's perfectly fine to ask questions, as long as you pay attention to the answers - You know what, maybe write them down..

5. Proper Grammar: FYI Should've is a contraction for "should have," and not "should of" like it’s usually used. And the difference between your and you’re is actually important.

6. Swim: Swimming is one of those survival skills that everyone should definitely know how to do by the time they turn 25. Even if you don't live near a body of water, to live in fear of something that covers 70% of earth is just unnecessary. 


7. How to set up insurance (house, car and life): Does this even need an explanation? Everything need insurance, give them a call and get it done!

8. How to cook (Almost as good as your mom): Scramble an egg, bake a cake, steam vegetables... you’re not trying to compete on the next season of Master Chef, but being able to make a simple meal for yourself without resorting to take out or calling your mother for help is something you should know.


9. Goldfish bowls are really bad places to keep Goldfish. Fun fact.

10. Quit Smoking: I mean it’s 2018 people, we know how bad it is, just give it up.

11. Have/start a savings account: Invest in your future early, you’ll thank us for it later.

12. Parallel Park: “If i have to parallel park i’m not going” can no longer be your mentality at 25. Watch a couple youtube videos and im sure you can figure it out. Also tip: Practice without cars around. 


13. For Aspirin to save your life during a heart attack you need to chew it. 

14. Drink Responsibly It may have been cool to double-fist Bud light and throw back shots of cheap tequila before stumbling out on the town... But by the time you turn 30, it is definitely not cool. Not the Buds and cheap tequila--those are still cool. But the embarrassing misadventures of getting blackout drunk that you and your friends used to be able to laugh off but now probably send you down a shame spiral. By the time you turn 25, you should be pacing yourself with your drinking. You can still let loose and get toasty, but your S.O. shouldn't afraid you'll get blackout drunk and hit on their boss if they take you to the work holiday party. 


15. Wear clothing that fits properly: Too big, too small. Too baggy, too tight. No matter the designer or how expensive it was, if it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t look good. Along that line it’s time to dress for your age. You aren't a 19 year-old trying to get into a bar anymore, you’re an adult looking for or already have a full time job, it’s time to dress like it.

16. How to Remove a Stain: Stains an inevitable, and remember when you use to bring it to mom and magically it would be gone? Well that magic doesnt exist, you have to know the tricks. Whether you are a seltzer water, tide pen, or bleach kind of person, find your method because you’ll need it.


17. A tattoo won't make you a rock-star, sorry. But you know what? It's not a bad place to start, if that's what you're after. Just make sure you're sober, and it's not the name of someone who might not be around in five or 10 years, got it?

18. Rejection isn't personal. If they don't call, it's not your problem. Heck, it's probably not even about you. Don't waste any more precious seconds worrying about someone who is so obviously not worth your time.


19. Nobody knows what they're doing. We're all just faking it a little bit. The joy of getting older is knowing when it's OK to bluff something, and when to ask for help. (FYI it's OK, and natural, not to know everything)

20. Who your friends are. Sorry to break it to you, but life can get tough sometimes – but if you've got a BFF or two to weather the storm with you, it won't feel half as bad, promise. Work out who those diamonds are, and hold them close for the good, the bad and the ugly.
