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.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.
