Seeds of wisdom

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

It is my birthday today, which means some years ago today, my mother suffered a great deal. So instead of requesting gifts, I will gift you with all the wisdom I have collected over however many years I've been alive ... and all the things my mother never bothered telling me. (Payback?)

1. Work hard, play hard. 
For reals, I think this is the key to happiness. I struggle multiple times a day to remember this, and then I forget two seconds later.

2. You can do anything if you set your mind to it.
I think this is true. It's been true every time I've tried it, but I think I don't try it often enough on things that I should take more seriously. But still, it's worked.

3. Try everything at least once.

4. "Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard" - Baz Luhrmann
It's too late for me, but I am an example of why you should not stay in New York City for too long. Heed my warning.

5. You're capable of more than you think. / You are your own worst enemy.

6. Never trust lawyers, politicians or businessmen.
This is doubly true if you are one of them.

7. If they do it twice, they'll do it again.

8. Boys named Jesse or Jordan are always hot.
Yes, I speak from experience. 

9. Those who know do not speak, those who speak do not know.

10. Don't eat Peeps in bed.
Trust me.
