quote 74 - 27th March:

Today is a very exciting day. It's my 18th birthday! I thought in honor of today being the first day I'm officially an adult I'd share 18 things I've learned during my 18 years on this earth

  1. Don't let others control your happiness
  2. Never take anything for granted
  3. Never put your time into the hands of the ungrateful
  4. Give people a second chance, but not a third
  5. Always dance to the music
  6. You can never be overdressed or over educated
  7. Know when to walk away
  8. Make time for you
  9. Your mom always knows who your true friends are
  10. It's okay to cry sometimes
  11. Be patient, good things will come
  12. Write things down
  13. Go to bed early
  14. A few true friends are infinitely better than lots of fake friends
  15. Don't procrastinate (like I'm doing right now)
  16. Try new things, you might be surprised
  17. Always speak the truth
  18. Believe in yourself

Remember to keep it cute, and classy
