5 Pieces of Advice to Get Through Your 20s

Your 20’s can be a tricky time in your life. You’re old enough to be considered an adult, and yet somehow you feel like the fish out of the water surrounded with people who are more adept, has more experience in life, and are filled with wisdom. You might be only starting the road to gaining life’s wisdom, so expect advices thrown your way every now and then.

It is generally a period filled with fun and exciting times, your 20s. Though filled with confusion at some point, it is always a time of transition and adventures you will look back on later in life. It may be a long journey but as you go along you will find yourself in a number of experiences which will richen your view in life.

Regardless, you can’t go wrong with arming yourself with advices to help you get through your 20s.

• Be bold and take risks
The thing with being in your 20’s is that you have the freedom to choose, well if you choose to, that is. This is the perfect time to pursue what sets your heart on fire and of what makes you happy. In so doing, there are things you might risk in the process but in order to figure out which things are worth pursuing—you have to take a risk and do it in the first place.

• Surround yourself with good friends
Good friends weigh more than the value of gold. As you grow older in life, it is important you keep in touch with lifelong friends who can make you feel better when you need some cheering up. They help you feel good about yourself even in times when you hate yourself the most, and they help you become a better person as a whole.

• Learn the art of gratitude
A simple “thank you” goes a long way. Take time to appreciate people’s efforts especially if they do something for you. A small gesture of gratitude along with a sincere smile may just complete someone’s day. We all fight our own battles and you never know when they may need positivity the most.

• Maintain a reading habit
Reading is one hobby you can pick up shortly especially after you’re through with your studies. Now that you aren’t necessarily required by the academia to read books, do it voluntarily and find a genre you are most interested in. For one, classics can bring a bit of perspective into your life. You may even pick up some lessons you haven’t before!

• Balance your work-personal life
Make every second of every day count. Don’t get too swamped with work, as your life doesn’t solely revolve around deadlines and summary reports. Learn how to manage your time well and spend time on doing the things you love the most. Take note, it won’t hurt to have some time for yourself and enjoy the little things in life.

A Brief List of Considerations to Take into Account during an Earthquake

Although Singapore is a city-state which is less prone to earthquakes because it’s not located on a plate boundary, neighboring boundaries may still affect the country in the event of a big tremor. For one, a very powerful quake can swing Singapore’s tall buildings and skyscrapers. With this unfortunate event likely to happen out of the blue, this puts all residents at risk.

It becomes imperative, then, for us to be aware of what to do during an earthquake. Vigilance is something we must all practice and exercise. Sure, we may find ourselves in panic and hysteria in times of distress — but awareness of what you should do may just secure you a ticket into survival and less to almost no casualty.

• If you are on an upper story of a building during an earthquake, do not attempt to leave the building while the tremor is ongoing.
Traversing a building and its surroundings in the midst of a quake is a terrible idea. Debris may fall upon you and injure you further compared to staying still in the place where you are and finding a material to help you duck, cover, and hold. It is not advisable to move around too much in the event of a quake because…

• Running or walking around when a quake is going on is very dangerous.
Since the ground is moving, the unstable floor may prompt you to lose balance and tumble over. With lots of debris that may fall upon you, being on the move may just land you more injuries. Traversing as little as possible while there is an earthquake significantly reduces your odds of risking your life to the many dangers around.

• Remember to duck, cover, and hold.
These are the three words you must keep in mind when there’s an earthquake happening: duck, cover, and hold. Finding cover to shield yourself is one guaranteed way to protect yourself from the dangers of falling debris. It has been found out that falling debris is the source of most injuries during a quake, hence it is imperative to protect yourself from getting hit.

• Generally, earthquakes do not last long.
Even when you are on your heightened survival mode, chances are you won’t be fast enough to leave the building you are in during a quake — especially when the floor is unpredictably shaking and debris are falling onto you. Instead of attempting to make it all the way out, find cover instead.

• Debris may fall outside, as well.
This is the reason why leaving the building when there’s a tremor going on doesn’t guarantee you utmost safety. Outdoor façade materials, like glass and bricks, may also fall outside during an earthquake. Accordingly, keep yourself sheltered and brace for any possible aftershocks.
