26 observations for 26 years of life…

Today, I turned 26. So, in honor of my aging, I thought I’d share 26 observations for the 26 years of life.

  1. What you wear is almost always as important as what you say.
  2. Ibuprofen is the same thing as Motrin.
  3. Always carry a scarf. Even on a 100+ degree day, it’ll be hot outside and cold inside.
  4. Relationships are about setting expectations. This is includes your relationship with yourself.
  5. A pint of frozen yogurt is only marginally better for you than a pint of ice cream.
  6. Just because you have a bigger bag does not mean you need to put more stuff in it. Self-induced scoliosis is not funny.
  7. Speaking to yourself negatively perpetuates bad moods.
  8. Macarons are the worlds most elegant treats to overindulge in. Just looking at them will make you smile.
  9. If the Game of Thrones series follows the books exactly, it could take a decade to finish. Not complaining, just saying.
  10. Sharing can be hard.
  11. “Natural” in reference to food and products is a silly marketing term with no meaningful regulation.
  12. The word “literally” no longer means literally. (Seriously, here’s proof!)
  13. If it looks bad on the mannequin or the model, it is unfailingly going to look terrible on a real human. Move along.
  14. Packing up your things and moving to a new home gets more difficult by multiples of 10 for every year you are alive.
  15. Nike’s slogan can be applied to most everything in life. So, just. do. it. Even if you don’t feel like it.
  16. Wear shoes you can walk in for more than 15 minutes.
  17. Leaving dishes in the sink for the morning will start your day off terribly. Don’t.
  18. Trends suck. Do, and wear things you like.
  19. Hosting a dinner party themed à la pinterest is basically impossible.
  20. Every year, from now on, you will only get older.
  21. Accept that you will change your mind. Often.
  22. Your friends probably have the same guilty pleasures as you do. Embrace the shame, together.
  23. Being kind to others is important. Being kind to yourself is too.
  24. Muffins are cupcakes without frosting.
  25. Sleeping in on weekends is totally acceptable, unless the clock hits the double digits (you’re safe until 9:59).
  26. Moderate vanity is better than becoming unkempt.
