Things to remember (What I learned in 2015)

1. You're beyond loved. Even on days where it doesn't feel like it.
2. I saw a post on tumblr that roughly went something like, think of all the people you've fallen in love with and had a crush on but never told, you are that to someone.
3. Whatever you believe in, if you subscribe to a religious belief or not, one thing always holds true. You were put here with a purpose, and sometimes you may feel like you're not striving to your full potential. Remember some days, your purpose is just to get out of bed.
4. Sometimes it's the typical douchebag who hurts you and sometimes it's the bookish nerd. Both times hurt like hell, but you're way more than boys who don't see your value.
5. It's great to be smart and make presidents list every semester (take it from yours truly), but if you're not applying what you know, you're not really learning.
6. You're paying way too much money to shutup in class. College is expensive, voice your opinions and stay active in class. You aren't paying $2,000 a class to sit in the corner and be quiet.
7. If anyone tells you to change how you look because you'll "pull off this look so much better" they secretly hate you.
8. You can work, get good grades and have a social life if you choose. Destroy the idea that you can't have it all.
9.  You're not going to stay friends with people from high school. I think I say this  everytime I do one of these. Still holds true.
10. You don't have to make friends in college. Don't even start me with how much girl on girl hate happeneds. If you don't feel comfortable around people, you don't have to be friends with them, just treat everyone with respect.
11. If someone is rude, it's not worth telling them to eff off. With that in mind, if someone is rude to you, it might be worth telling them to kiss your behind.
12. Don't beat yourself up if you don't know what you want to do anymore. Passions change, and you won't ever have it all figured out.
13. Stop using "I'm staying true to myself" as an excuse. It's great when you mean it, but let's be honest, you're probably trying to get out of something.
14. Don't make promises you can't keep.
15. Kill your insecurities. They're not fun to play with.
16. This is going to sound hypocritical with the lessons above, but you're going to be lonely. Your "friends" don't get your vision for the world, neither does your family or classmates. Learn that you can admit to being lonely. You're not any less of a person for wanting human connection, it's what we're all programmed for. 
17. If someone questions your goals or dreams, don't even think about giving them the time of day.
18. The girls who were mean to you in the past, at some point may want to befriend you. You're not a bad person for giving them the cold shoulder and you're not weak for allowing them in.
19. Stop reading Inc. and Forbes thinking you know what business is. Get out there and just do it. 
20. Stop doing things for someone else's bragging rights. That's your goal in 2016. If you're not into it, stop doing it. 
21. (Much like above), you don't have to be someone worth writing home about in your 20s...live a little bit. Interact with people, have a bit of a social life. You don't need to just focus on your future and 5-year plan. You may love the feeling of being driven, but it doesn't necessarily make you happy.
22. Maybe the job you want, doesn't exist (yet).
23. Stop envying your friends who are traveling and not going to school. Sure they're having fun. But you picked a different path. Neither one is more right than the other.
24. Stop dreaming your life away, try and live in the now. Not when you graduate, not when you can travel, and not when you'll have financial freedom.
25. Happy takes work. Some days it's going to feel like your brain has less happy chemicals and others you'll be over flowing with them. 
26. Stop trying to not offend people. If they're offended, too damn bad. That's how the effen world works. (With that being said, don't go out of your way to offend someone.) 
27. Dress how you want. Even if it's wearing heels in the snow or all black or a face full of makeup. The people who don't like it, don't like you anyways.
28. My Public Relations teacher always said "Say it fast and say it true." Don't lie to make yourself look good, people see past that. You're human, therefore you're allowed to be completely flawed. And people respond better to that than fake perfection.
29. Stop trying to run away. People are coming to this town from all over because the great things it has to offer. And you're trying to get out because you feel trapped.
30. Stop picking up a guys intrests to try and get him to like you. He'll probably not notice anyways. That being said, feel free to explore the intrests to see if you'll like them.
31. Stop being afraid of being too much. You are never too much and never too little. You're (insert name here).

  6. Number 6 is absolutely true. Always interact and add somethings to the conversation. Otherwise you don't need to be there. Take something away from class.
