Lesson 2016

Depression doesn’t win, you do.

Spend time with your siblings.

Spend time with your other family and friends, you never know when it’s the last you’ll see them.

Death proved time and time again it doesn’t give a shit who you are, how old you are, where you are or how much fame or fortune you have–you’re going.

Mimosas are fun.

Just because they’re “family”, doesn’t mean you have to like them.

It’s okay to say no and stand in your beliefs. You stand in it everyday.

Read. Learn. Repeat. Forever.

That city you’ve been wanting to go to? Go. Plan accordingly, and wait for no one else to do so.

Take pictures, for no good reason.

Fun never stops being a road trip away.

They’ll never be another musician like Prince or Bowie.

Don’t date a musician. Just….don’t.

Closed doors eventually route you to a world beyond your fears.

Which speaking of, fuck your fears. You’re bigger than those.

Work doesn’t work unless you do.

Beyonce’ + concert=Everything.

With Google and YouTube, there is no excuse to be dumb.

There is no expiration date on college.

Did I mention never stop taking photos? Or collecting them.

Applying for a job is a full-time one.

Turning 30 is not that big of a deal. But kind of is. Those things you still basically have, not just want to do, NOW is the time. You won’t turn into dust if you don’t, but no time like when you still have all your teeth and mostly good sense.

When it comes to birthdays, sometimes simple is better.

Perfect your hobbies.

Whiskey is never is good idea when your ex is around.

Some friends are only ones when it’s convenient. Ditch them.

Has anyone figured out how to turn off Facebook Live yet?

If getting one year older hasn’t lit a fire under your ass, maybe being almost caught in the crossfire of one will. One day short of being in a mass shooting tends to do that.

Move far, but close to your dreams.

But it truly doesn’t hit you until you realize those pieces you’ve grown accustomed to having aren’t staying with you.

And stay away from your ex. Even if they just moved to the same state as you. Go home coincidence, you’re drunk.

Your replacement is never comparable to you. Unless they’re Beyonce’. But 9/10 they’re just bologna.

The more you do for yourself, the better you feel.

Do your research and ask questions. With everything. And everyone. Especially ones you’re choosing to live with.

Always start with a short-term lease.

Tinder is the Devil.

But not all dating is Hell.

When you least expect it, hard work pays off.

Never be ashamed to start from the bottom.

You don’t want to put in the hours, you don’t want it bad enough.

Stay patient with hustle. It took the Cubs 108 years to win.

Some people are suddenly “so proud” of you when they think you can do something for them.

Your entire life and feelings belong to you, not social media. Post accordingly.

Politics and people suck.

Never trust a candidate with a bad weave job.

Stop waiting for someone to “build an empire with”. Stand up and stack, and leave Stedman off to the side.
