Free advice; Enjoy being young while you are still young! Just enjoy being young as much as possible and don’t miss out on all the fun but you should balance your life with equal amounts of responsibility.
Think about it, the many things you hate to do now or will give up your young life for are the very things you will want to do that you may not get the chance to do. Once you grow up, you can never come back to them. So enjoy them now. Don’t allow your rush to grow blind you from seeing the fun in being child.
As a child, you are pampered; believe it or not. You are spoilt for choice, a thing you begin to lose when you grow .By the time you enter senior high school, you will lose this luxury. Dining hall matrons do not seek your consent before preparing meals. Think about it, your siblings in university are not fed. Their pocket determines what they eat and it’s at this stage people start eating things they will never eat at home with joy. Why not, enjoy them now?
Growing up, I am sure you cannot wait to move out of your parent’s house and be fully independent. Cool, you get to do what you want without interference but what about the times that you want help with certain things? Being independent is fine but no one can be fully self -sufficient and living alone is extremely tough. Apart from being denied total independence, with curfews and do’s and don’ts, you get to keep your savings to yourself, you don’t bother about buying even water. Enjoy it! When you move it, you will buy everything including toilet rolls. You may have the money for it but as they say, beer tastes better when someone else is paying.
