11 Lessons I’ve Learned in 22 Years

I turned 22 roughly a month ago, on the 8th of August. A few days to my birthday, I started reflecting on the things I’ve learned in my relatively little time on earth. I’m posting this in the hope that someone learns a thing or two. Personally, I also intend to use these lessons for some goal-setting and life-planning going forward.

Are we all being controlled by our desire for money?

A couple of months ago, my friend Rita asked me a question: If you didn’t have to worry about money or job security, what would you do with your life?

In its traditional form, the story of the tortoise and the hare is used to teach a lesson such as ‘slow and steady wins the race’ (even though I don’t believe that this statement is always true). However, I stumbled upon the picture below while I was scrolling through Instagram, and I found the twist on the traditional tortoise and hare depiction quite interesting.

It feels like it’s been ages since I did my last live cover, so I am super excited to release a new one!
