Life lessons from an 18 year old idiot

  1. Being controversial and being funny are not synonymous.
  2. Don’t dumb yourself down. For anyone. Ever.
  3. Your friends aren’t supposed to make you feel bad about yourself, so if yours do, you need new ones.
  4. There’s no shame in liking mainstream pop.
  5. Kindness costs nothing.
  6. No one else remembers that really embarrassing thing you did that still makes you blush when you think about it, so try not to get too worked up about those moments.
  7. Busted are the best band in the world and if anyone tries to tell you differently, they’re wrong.
  8. Don’t invalidate anyone’s feelings ever. Including your own.
  9. It’s ok to want to spend time alone.
  10. You don’t need to pretend to like something because it’s cool.
  11. Everyone is insecure about something so let’s all try be nice to one another every now and then.
  12. Be passionate about something. Whether it’s music, films, writing or whatever, find something that makes you light up when you talk about it because there’s nothing better than the look of joy on someone’s face when they talk about something they love.
  13. Don’t trust people who like Two and a Half Men or the Big Bang Theory.
  14. Avoiding secondary school drama is easier than people think.
  15. You don’t need to make excuses for not wanting to do something or go somewhere. You don’t have to do anything unless you want to.
  16. Don’t tone down the weird. It sounds incredibly cheesy, but people appreciate when you’re unapologetically you. Or at least the people worth keeping around do.
