1. You will fall in love and it will be nothing like the movies. He’s not gonna come to your window and he’s not gonna kiss you in the rain. He’s gonna make you lay awake at 3am and he’s gonna make you wish you’d never met because your whole body feels like it’s on fire.

2. School doesn’t make you learn anything except that people can be really mean. You won’t learn how to do taxes or vote or change the world but hell at least you can calculate velocity and bullshit a five page essay in two hours.

3.You’re going to make mistakes and some of them will cause more damage and some of them you can’t fix. But that just makes other things happen and life throws a lot of curveballs at you that you need to make good things from. I promise it’s only as bad as you let it be.

4. Kiss boys. Kiss girls. Kiss anyone you want and kiss people you don’t want to and cry about people who kissed people that weren’t you but never hurt yourself because of a kiss.

5. Some days you won’t want to wake up or move. Some days, don’t. Most days, get up anyway. Take a shower. Sing. Pretend you’re happier than you really are.

6. Don’t spend too much time hating yourself. Don’t act like someone else. Don’t waste time on pretending. Write love poems to you, from you and mean them.

7. You’ll find yourself waiting for the weekend and waiting for summer and waiting for things to get better. Make them better and do not wait.

8. Keep flowers always, wear whatever you want, hug as many people as you can. This is mandatory.

9. Nobody knows what to do when you run out of toilet paper. Ask a friend.

10. Never settle for less.

11. People don’t always mean what they say or say what they mean. Ask a lot of questions and genuinely mean them.

12. If they won’t hold your hand, don’t let them hold your heart.

13. Nights are either the worst things or the best things. Sometimes you cry a lot and ask the stars why and sometimes you laugh and lay in the street. Treasure both.

14. Things spoil when you try to force them to last forever. Appreciate the time you get with people or in places and don’t stretch it’s life longer than it needs to be. Not every friend will be with you forever. Know that it’s okay that way.

15. Nobody understands their feelings. Write about it, paint about it, sing about it, dance about it. Cry about it. You’re not the only one who feels a little lost. Search for comfort in lyrics and poems. 

16. If your pillow isn’t comfortable, buy a new one.

17. Nothing goes as planned. It’s beautiful though.
