  • themselves
  • the fact that you don't always have to do everything with the same people. It's ok to make new friends/let go of old ones.
  • education is important. Even if it's only high school, you can now write with grammatical correctness, and no you don't know how to exactly do taxes. But AT LEAST YOU HAVE THE SKILLSET TO DO SO
  • it's ok to grow up.
  • you don't have to bring other people down to make yourself feel better.
  • sorry if things aren't turning out the way you wanted. You have the power to change it.
  • I know living proof that you can be an amazing person even if you've gone through hardship.
  • you're not any less of a person for going to the doctor. They are there to help, so why the heck not?

  • while walking home in an complete torrential downpour of rain, wearing nothing but a sundress and flip flops, you can garner a LOT of attention.
  • you know that thing that happens a lot in cartoons, where a bus or large vehicle sprays a puddle all over you? yeah.. it sucks.
  • sometimes it's best to avoid stopping to smell roses. this may lead to thorns and too many mosquito bites.
  • walks like these really makes me appreciate the few hot sunny days of summer.
  • even though the rain pours, diehard birds will keep singing.
  • no matter how long it takes to walk, there is somewhere nice (like the end of a rainbow) to look forward to.
  • people will laugh at you for walking in the rain.. it's a guarantee. i end up laughing with them, because I realize how stu...

EAS 100:

  • it actually helps to go to class.
  • if you can't make it to a 10 o'clock class, you're doing something wrong.

EAS 100 Lab:

  • yes, labs suck.
  • yes, everything on the lab final was covered in class.
  • yes, you still have to study.
  • yes, it will start and end later/earlier than your other classes so you can suck it up.

FREN 211:

  • actually participate in class.
  • it's ok to not understand something. that's why there's a prof. and office hours.
