But trust me on the sunscreen
I was browsing my sister's blog and her post about that song it teaches me and life a valuable lesson. Everything in it is so true to life. Quotes from the song that really stand out to me: Stolen from sisxx.
Do not read beauty magazines. They will only make you feel ugly.
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.
Just worry about the present
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth.
Do one thing every day that scares you.
Live life to the fulliest.
Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.
Don't waste your time on jealousy. Sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is long and, in the end, it's only with yourself.
Haters gona hate.
Keep your old love letters. Throw away your old bank statements.
Life is hard, we need fantasy.
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. Some of the most interesting 40-year-olds I know still don't.
Enjoy your body. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.
Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.
It all falls into place later.
Get to know your parents. You never know when they'll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings. They're your best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle,
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel.
