Before 18 Tag

I was tagged by Mais to list 6 things one must learn to do and avoid before he turns 18.

The rules for this tag are:
  • Post these rules before presenting your list.
  • List 6 actions or achievements you think every person should accomplish before turning 18.
  • There are no conditions on what can be included on the list.
  • At the end of your post, choose 6 people to get tagged and list their names.
  • People who are tagged write their own blog entry with their 6 suggestions.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.
Alright, here we go:

1- Wear funky, trendy, and stylish clothes and accessories. Be fit and attractive.
2- Start to take care of your intellectual, spiritual and religious sides. Be on good terms with yourself, with God, and with the people around you.
3- Unleash your hidden superpowers and creativity. Do crazy and adventurous things as long as you're not hurting anybody including yourself. Read books, learn languages, choose a musical instrument and/or a sport and start learning and practicing it.
4- Think healthy and develop a healthy lifestyle. Do exercises frequently and eat healthy food. You can still enjoy having junk food from time to time.
5- Don't fall in love. Don't engage in a serious relationship. Don't take crucial decisions at this age whatsoever.
6- Start to enhance your life and your personality. Learn from your mistakes. Work on your weak points. Don't be stubborn and remember that you're still not wise enough to ignore your parents' advices. Listen to them, argue with them, but still, don't take things into granted.

and I have to violate one of the rules by not tagging anyone. Almost everybody was tagged already.

mmm I've done nothing of those except # 1 :sad:

Diana said...

well Adoosh, these are the things that I think should be done, but unfortunately we may not have the will or the chance to do many of them.

I'll make sure to encourage my children in the future to achieve all these points by the age of 18 inshallah. ba7lam kteer ana, sa7? :D

Adoosh said...

We all bne7lam of similar things, but the fact is that kids will grow up doing things like #1 in my list men wara daherna :ch:

Diana said...

I'll kill them if they thought of doing such things :D

Adoosh said...

looool .. yes you are dreaming .. when kids reach 13 or 14 they are something that you cannot control .. and when they are 16 .. they are something you cannot deal with at all.

Mabrook el marriage and the pregnancy...damn Im so late!! :( Insha'Allah kol omoorek tamam :)

We agree on #2

I'd better say #5 fall in love and fail so you can learn to make a better decision. though it's not that safe ?


Diana said...

Amjad: ohh, the sad truth :( . lol

Abed: Allah ybarek fek, thanks.
Actually falling in love is something you can't really control sometimes, so you're right, the more careful the better.

easier said than done sweets (sigh)
as the guys said, kids get out of control when they reach 13 or 14...but after all, being rebellious and wild is what shapes the personality and make u learn lots of things about life...u can't learn from others experiences..u have to live urs and learn from ur failures and mistakes! :)

Diana said...

That's true Mais, but they definitely can't be totally out of control and try drugs and dangerous things like these :s

This age is very sensitive, I'm freaked out already :D
