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.

Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home

1994

With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
