Day 23: School of Life

Because if you’re gonna rock a sock bun, chambray shirt, camo and wayfarers…you may as well toss in a silly face too

Blog Every Day in May has taught me a lot about myself. Especially that I’m willing to post ridiculous photos of myself for the purpose of entertaining readers (see above). And that I suck with deadlines, and I procrastinate even more than I realized. So I’ll be buckling down today to catch up on posts I’ve missed.

Life is an education far different than anything you receive in school. It teaches you things you never thought you’d need to know. It’s taught me a thing or two in my 26 years.
You will undoubtedly get your heartbroken. You probably assumed as much. But if you’re at all like me, you never thought you’d be the person who broke someone’s heart. But chances are, you will. So try to be as compassionate as possible.
Breaking up with people is a lot harder than you would think. You assume it’s easy when you’re on the receiving end, but that isn’t always the case.
Heartbreak is not easy. It shouldn’t be underestimated. It can be all consuming. It can make you feel like you’re drowning, and finding your way to the surface may be one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. 
Sometimes the people you love, won’t love you back. Its unfortunate. It sucks. It’s painful. But it’s the truth.

And sometimes people will love you, who you don’t love back. They’re perfectly nice people. And yeah you could have a nice life with them. But are you willing to settle for just nice?

Your life is a result of the choices you make. Well yeah. You knew that already. Where you are in your life is directly related to all of the opportunities you took advantage of. What you probably didn’t realize is that its also directly related to all of the opportunities you passed up. For me, I passed up the chance to go to prep school. I’ve always kind of regretted that.
Quarterlife crisis’ are real. Yeah that’s right, you may start questioning your life a whole lot sooner than when you’re middle age.
You may never know what you want to be when you are “grown up.” Some people never find their calling. And that’s perfectly okay.  Just don’t spend your entire life doing something that you don’t enjoy.  Try different things (if the economy allows obviously).
Life can be tough. And it can be cruel and unfair. But it can be oooh sooo good. So learn to roll with the punches. Embrace the things that are thrown your way, good or bad. Because if you treat things as learning experiences and push forward they can become positive experiences in the long run. 

And don’t forget its Therapy Thursday!
