The Primer For Real Life - Tay Meets World

The Primer For Real Life

9:51:00 AM

Last week I received a package in the mail from my Great Aunt who lives in California. She is one of the funnest people I know. She is always laughing and I have some of the greatest memories with her. Once, when I was little she was teaching me how to say "that deer has a big butt" in French, to this day I still know that 'derriere' means butt in French. Anyway, I opened the package and it was my college graduation gift!

I was already intrigued on what this gift entitled because she always has the best and funnest gifts ever….turns out, this gift was made for me (theoretically).

Since I cannot read you this book, I will write it, most of it because it is just that good.

// Don't worry about the future. Or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubble gum.

// Do one thing everyday that scares you.

// Floss.

// Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life. The most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives. (This is my life)

// Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary.

// Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly.

// Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. 

// Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard.

// Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

// Maybe you have a trust fund. Maybe you'll have a wealthy spouse. But you never know when either one might run out.

// Don't expect anyone else to support you.

// And trust me on the sunscreen.

I think it is important to read books like this. To understand that other people are going through things like you are, and to see the world as an opportunity, not a battle. This gift is just what I needed; I tend to get lost in certain situations and it is small things such as this that have a way of bringing me back on track. Thank you GREAT Aunt;)

I would recommend buying your book here (I haven't disclosed all the goodness of it yet)!

Have a peaceful and positive day my friends!
