19 Things I’ve Learned Before Turning 19

Today I turn one year older, one year wiser, and on year messier. In light of that, I though it would be fun to post a few little things I have learned in the past years. 

19 things I’ve learned before turning 19

• Don’t judge people before you know them.
• When washing dishes in the dishwasher, make sure to use dishwashER soap, not just dishwashING soap. If you get the two mixed up, you’ll end up with a big bubbly mess and your mom will scold you for ruining the dishwasher. 
• When you have no one to buy you flowers, buy yourself flowers. 
• Be careful who you trust. 
• Don’t rush into a relationship. Enjoy being signal, discover who you are, make the most of your time you have to yourself.
• Coffee comes before Talkee. 
• You don’t have to please every single person. 
• Just because your not good at something or you don’t know how to do something, doesn’t mean you can’t learn or get better. 
• Never take anything for granted, not even the small every day things. 
• Your little brother will, in fact, get taller than you. There’s nothing you can do to prevent it. 
• Be real and raw and venerable. Don’t worry about other people judging you. 
• Don’t let worthless, negative comments get you down. When you do your best, that’s what counts.
• Kitchens are for dancing.  
• You don’t /need/ someone, but you sure can /want/ someone. 
• Write, write, write. Even if it’s messy, just pour yourself out onto paper. Edit later… or maybe even not at all. 
• 2am were made for poets, writers, visionaries, photographers, painters, over thinkers, and silent seekers.
• Being honest is more attractive then being impressive.
• Long drives with the windows rolled down are soothing to the soul. 
• No matter how old you get, you will never stop making mistakes and you will never stop learning.
