19 Things I Have Learned In 19 Years

I am nineteen so that means I have been on this earth for almost two decades. That is a long time. I am going to list 19 things I have learned so far, the hard way or the easy way.

Don' t let anyone tell you what you cannot do. 

Go after what you want, no matter what 

Enjoy being young because you grow up fast 

Don't forget the people that raised you.  Always appreciate them 

Be grateful for what you have because some people have nothing 

Do not settle for anything 

Take any opportunity that comes along because you may not get another one

Never forget that you are beautiful inside and out 

Fake friends are not worth your time 

Everyone makes mistakes 

No one, and I mean no one, is perfect 

Live every day to the fullest 

Everyone has their flaws - it's better to accept those and live with them 

Depression is real. If you feel it reach out to someone. If you know someone with it, reach out to them. 

Make every day count 

Work hard so you can play later 

Don't ever be someone else - always BE YOU 

Always be kind to everyone - You never know who they will end up being in your life. 

Lastly, always be true to your beliefs. This will help you in the end.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

14759

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
