What I Have Learned in 2008

What I Have Learned in 2008

On Life:

• Speak from your heart and not your mind.

• Change isn’t always bad and can be welcome. You may not like it at first, but you will appreciate it later.

• In the end, it’s between you and God, not you and them.

• Karma is real. You get back what you put out.

On Love:

• Just because you’re a communications major, in touch with your emotions and can communicate effectively does not mean you actually do this in real life.

• Love is not always easy. But it’s worth it.

• People do not change. We become reflections of who we are at our core, but we remain the same.

• Never treat the one you love the most the worst. It makes no sense.

On Friendship:

• Being friends with someone because it is convenient is not really convenient. Being friends with someone because it’s easy really is easy. And worth it.

• Just because you give someone love and friendship does not mean that they own that love or friendship. Think of it as love on loan. You must remember that it can be taken from you at any time.

• Not everyone is a decent, loving, kind and good person; though most people are.

• Not everyone can be trusted. It does not mean that you shouldn’t trust.

• Sometimes the people you think are only kind of friends turn out to be the best kind of friend.

• Don’t invite people to parties if you don’t want them there. They will always show up. Maybe it’s just to spite you, maybe it’s because they are nosy and want to know what’s going on.

On Buying and Owning a Home:

• Buying a house IS indeed one of the hardest things you'll ever do as a young adult. It's also one of the most rewarding, frustrating and eye-opening experiences of my life.

• Your huge closet will not stay full once you buy a home. You will learn to wear the same shirt next season. And the season after that.

Above all: Keep it classy.
