I Only Think I Know A Lot Of Things...Here Are Ten Of Them

1. This is first because I truly believe it IS number one. If you don't like your job, QUIT. Immediately. Yes, they will know what to do without you. No, it's not worth the aggravation. Yes, you will get another job. No, you probably don't get paid enough to put up with whatever it is. And even if you think you will, you most likely won't wind up living in a cardboard box.

2. You’ll never truly know the power of your beauty in your twenties. By the time you realize what you had, it’ll be gone or less than it was. If someone tells you you’re beautiful, say thank you. You don't have to hide it. Just try to be as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside because pretty just doesn't cut it if you're a bitch.

3. An education is never wasted, but paying more for it than you could is just plain stupid. A college isn't "good" just because it's expensive. And that "good" school is probably all about appearances; it really matters only in your mind. When it comes right down to it, no one cares. Well, maybe unless you're a brain surgeon. And you CAN get a job without a college education. Thousands of people do.

4. Don’t waste time in life. Do what you want when you want to do it. You may not have another opportunity.

5. Speak your mind. Be clear. Say what you want. Don’t be afraid to be different.

6. Learn a language or an instrument. Both, if possible. It will open all kinds of doors.

7. Call people back. Or email them. Or teleport. Or whatever is the communication link of your day. Yes, it is important and no, we don't believe you were "busy".

8. Boys don’t get any smarter. Ever. Learn to work around it. If you keep your expectations low, it may be easier for them to meet them. (But don't count on it.)

9. Travel. It doesn't have to be across the world, just get out of your bubble and see other places, meet other people. It will definitely open your eyes and maybe even enrich your life.

10. Save money; no matter how little. Twenty years later, you'll be glad you did.

These are good! I am going to take a stab at creating my own "10 Things". It will be an interesting challenge, and you know how I like them challenges. :)
