23 Things I've Learned in 23 Years




  1.  It's okay to go it alone. It wasn't until I was dancing alone in the second row after being ditched at a chainsmokers show for me to realize i'm able to have just as much fun alone as I would with friends.
  2. You will meet certain people that will touch your heart in the best way possible. Don't let them go. 
  3. Friends are great but sometimes you've gotta save yourself. 
  4. If you're unhappy with your job, leave and find a new one. I cant stress this enough. 
  5. Invest in some good skincare.
  6. Guys are dumb but there are a select few that are worth your time. 
  7. A wine night with your best friend can and will fix everything.
  8. TJMAXX is the best department store ever created. 
  9. It's okay to be sad but don't dwell on it. Our problems are so small.
  10. NEVER bleach your own hair. What the hell was I thinking.
  11. Wear comfortable shoes to general admission concerts. 
  12. Don't build that wall too high. I know you've been hurt many times before but don't keep EVERYONE out.
  13. Life is way too short to spend your time with people that hold you back.
  14. Find that one friend you'd do anything for. 
  15. Travel as much as you can. Even if it's in your own city.
  16. Don't pop your pimples. 
  17. Your mom will always be your #1 supporter. Don't forget about her. 
  18. Research your tattoo artist before getting that first spontaneous tattoo. 
  19. Go at your own pace. You don't need to be where everyone else is. 
  20. Sometimes the best thing you can do for someone is listen.
  21. Don't let your comfort zone keep you from doing amazing things. 
  22. Write in that journal you bought last year. You'll thank yourself later.
  23. Know that you're always growing and changing. Keep bettering yourself not only for you but for those around you.
