21 for 21

I turned 21 today and really felt that I should blog about it. 21, in the United States, is more looked upon as the age someone is an adult since you can't drink alcohol until your 21 (and for the record, drinking alcohol is a lame rites of passage ceremony compared to other cultures). But instead of writing a blog about all that I've learned, which I was tempted to do; I decided to write 21 things that, at 21, I still don't know. Enjoy.
in case you were confused
  1. I have no idea how to pay my own taxes
  2. I'm terrible with fractions and need a calculator for most math
  3. I don't know how to work Microsoft Excel 
  4. I don't know how to keep weight off that I loose 
  5. I don't know much about my own country's history
  6. I still don't know where all the 50 states are located, much less most other countries. 
  7. I still don't know all the States capitals...I never learned that song
  8. I don't understand economics...AT ALL
  9. I still don't know what happened to my "Yak Bak" 
  10. I still don't know what color my eyes are
  11. I still don't know exactly where that "line" my mom always talked about is.
  12. I still don't know if I want to get married or not
  13. I still don't know why some people get healed and others don't
  14. I still don't know how to cook without a recipe
  15. I still don't know what working a 9-5 is like
  16. I don't know how to drive a stick-shift 
  17. I still don't know why Eve listened to a talking snake
  18. I still don't know what heaven will be like and if we go straight there or if we "fall asleep"
  19. I still don't know what to do when I get up to a bank teller, I always freak out and do the wrong thing.
  20. I still don't know what this next step is going to look like
  21. I still don't know why I was born into the privilege and the wonderful family that I was born into while others are born into terrible situations
There's a lot I don't know but there is a lot that I do know thanks to these 21 years of vast and rare experiences. All I truly know for sure is that God is good and I'm so thankful for the 21 years He's given me and for the breath that He continues to supply.
