Top o' the mornin' to y'all, mates. Today, I am 21 and so yes, today everyone should be in a state of fear. I'll let you interpret that any way you'd like. But before I escape to go diligently learn in class among other things, I thought I'd share 21 things I've learned in my lifetime.
Are they the 21 most important things I've learned? Gosh, I hope not. But I jotted these down in twenty minutes and who knows, maybe you'll learn a thing or two today.
1 // McDonald's french fries win every french fry competition, hands down.
2 // Make your bed your most favorite place in the world - splurge on mattress tops and foamy thingies and snuggly blankets, jersey sheets (or whatever feels softest to your bare skin), and remember that you can never have too many pillows. This way, you'll never in your life end a day on a bad note.
3 // Proximity facilitates friendship; effort facilitates best friendship.
4 // The days go by slow and the years go by fast.
5 // Travel.
6 // But hold home close to your heart. Never forget where you came from.
7 // Find the beauty - it's usually where the humor's at.
8 // A little bit of class, a dose of funny, a lot of kindness, and a dollop of quirk, too, and you're good to go.
9 // Education is underrated. Don't you ever take it for granted.
10 // Without the hard bits in life, the good wouldn't ever be so good.
11 // In time, everything makes sense.
12 // Take pictures. A lot of them.
13 // Defeat, failure, and disappointment build character.
14 // There's no friend like a sister.
15 // Treat yourself right.
16 // It's okay to like or believe or say the cliche things. There's a reason they're cliche.
17 // Life's all about taking pleasure in the little things.
18 // But the big ones, too.
19 // Your parents are usually right about most things, but it doesn't hurt to make your own mistakes. Well actually, it'll probably hurt. But that's half the point anyway.
20 // Don't deprive yourself of sugar or carbs or laughter. That never ends well.
21 // Love hard and be kind. It's really all you've got.
