What I've Learned In Life

JUNIOR HIGH

Don't kiss a boy just 'cause he likes you. Stop and think whether you actually like him back.

Avoid trends. Even if you get them right, you'll regret the pictures.

Being intelligent will not hurt your position in society, no matter how dumb society happens to be.

HIGH SCHOOL

Your friends don't have to share all the same interests and perspectives as you. They can be very different, and you can still be friends.

Learn to deal with practical jokes. They are not that big a deal.

COLLEGE

Get a map of campus before day one, and study it.

Skip class ocassionally. You'll make priceless memories.

MARRIAGE

Spend more on the dress and the honeymoon, and less on the food.

Invite only people you actually know, no matter what your mom says.

Play nice. It'll make your marriage easier and better.

Stop and enjoy each other, even when you are busy and stressed.

BABY

Don't let others' opinions make you change yours.

Discipline does make a baby happier.

You are not going to burn just because you use disposables. Even if the liberal in you cringes everytime you buy diapers. Just have the hubby buy the diapers.

People are weird about their kids. They believe they are right even when it's obvious they are making a huge mistake. But it's not your kid - and it's not your mistake. Stay out of it!

Just because a doctor/government sponsored commercial/book says it, doesn't mean it's right.

Crying's not that big a deal most of the time.

Etcetera.

Practice jokes... I don't remember the whole thing, but I think I remember it not being good!
