17 Things I Learned in 2017

17 Things I Learned in 2017

2017 was a rollercoaster ride of a year. As most years go, there was a lot of bad (thanks Trump) as well as lots of good (thanks Ellen DeGeneres). To honor the ending of this tumultuous year, here are 17 things that I learned in 2017.

  • Ben & Jerry’s and New Girl make for the best Friday nights.
  • Try to take most things with a grain of salt.
  • I really, really, really love coffee.
  • Don’t take the good things in life for granted, people included.
  • Every day can be an adventure if you have a sense of spontaneity.
  • Money is really easy to blow in college.
  • College really isn’t one big party (the people who have the most fun are probably going to peak in college).
  • Embrace your body fat. Life doesn’t need to revolve around açai bowls and workouts.
  • This world is a mess.
  • Having a sense of direction is important. Literally and figuratively.
  • Alcohol sucks. I’d much rather spend my money on a tub of ice cream.
  • Love really does make the world go ’round.
  • Just because someone has differing political views, doesn’t make them a bad person. (unless they’re a white supremacist).
  • Coffee, cuddles, fluffy animals, and a good laugh are the remedies for life’s low moments.
    Life is filled with low moments.
  • Your body is your own, so cherish it, decorate it, pierce it, moisturize it, and honestly, just do whatever the hell you want with it. It’s yours, and yours only.
  • You don’t owe an explanation to anyone. This is your journey, so live it how you want.

Embrace Your Misfit Soul,
