Considering finals week starts tomorrow, and I have 6 finals to be preparing for, it seems like a premium time to blog. Also, it was my birthday yesterday, and I feel like I need to share my 22 years of wisdom with all of you, all 6 of you. [Photo courtesy of Cake Wrecks--LOVE that blog]
22 Things I’ve Learned:
1: Reality TV isn’t real.
2: First dates are bogus.
3: People matter.
4: Urbanization = Issues.
5: Mountains are therapeutic.
6: College won’t solve all my life problems, most likely graduate school won’t either. Dangit.
7: Musical Theatre is ten times better than Prozac.
8: I have a weird thing for young professors.
9: Wind Energy can be profitable.
10: Decisions should be made hastily, otherwise I won’t make them.
11: Blogging is less addicting than facebook, yet more satisfying.
12: Soda is terrible.
13: Euler was a pretty smart guy.
14: Mothers are legit.
15: Avocados, Creed from The Office, quiet time, David Sedaris, cynicism, and pomegranates are underrated.
16: The Federal Government needs some remodeling.
17: We should stop treating 18 year olds like adults, because no one knows anything when they are that age.
18: Excel is amazing.
19: WOW, Twilight, Top 40, David Letterman, and surfing are overrated.
20: No one can replace a pair of amazing BFFs.
21: My generation is going to have an internet and cell phone addiction issue as we move into the workforce.
22: The restored gospel is for reals.
Don’t I sound so wise? Yeah….I didn’t think so either. Seriously though, as much as I hate growing up into more and more responsibilities, life gets better as birthdays go by. I feel like the more life experience I have, the more I can appreciate this world. It is kind of like taking an Art History class. As you take the class you learn more and more about the sacrifice, pain, and meaning behind a few paintings, and you learn to appreciate all art through the process. As I grow up I get a little taste of difficulties, consequences, and happiness, and I am able to understand what other people are going through, and how amazing their successes, and even failures, are.
Bring it on, twenty-two.
