19 things I learned at 19
(and I’m a little too late for that game, because my birthday happened back in November, but I mean, I’m always a little too late):

  1. Coconut oil is one of the best nature’s creations. You can use it for your hair, you can use it for your skin, for your nails, for lips, for teeth, for building empires; list goes on. Literally anything.
  2. Pop Punk is the most beautiful music genre. It gets me.
  3. You get a chance to choose who you’re going to be every 5 minutes. You can change yourself completely, it’s up to you.
  4. I can’t even count the times I watched the movie “Stuck In Love” this year. So, I guess, I learned that I really like that one. And it  has one of the best soundtracks in the history of soundracks, without a doubt.
  5. We are nothing. I mean, think about the current human population, about the people who used to live here, about those who will; then think about the Earth, about oceans that we barely know anything about; think about the universe, about stars, about galaxies, all the other planets. We are nothing. We don’t matter. Nobody cares. And it’s the most positive thing, because this simple fact gives you a total freedom to be anything, to be anyone, to do whatever. Our nothingness is freaking beautiful.
  6. Meat industry is a huge problem.
  7. You have to be your biggest fan. And it’s not a cocky thing.
  8. University is a hundred million times harder than high school. It’s nuts. But, in general, it’s still better than high school, I wouldn’t go back.
  9. People love in a whole bunch of different ways. It is complex and different for everyone. Every kind of love counts.
  10. Women are amazing.
  11. People change their beliefs and that’s great! You have to question things that you believe in every once in a while, because otherwise you’re not growing.
  12. Always use a body lotion. It’s beneficial for your skin and also quite therapeutic. I’ve got one that smells like coffee!! 
  13. Brendon Urie is God among men.
  14. Primers and makeup fixing sprays actually make a difference. Use them, especially if you have an oily skin.
  15. Always keep an open mind. Read books, talk to different people and actually listen, watch all kinds of movies, don’t rush to judge, travel, try new activities, experience new things. It will enrich you.
  16. “Five Quarters of the Orange” by Joanne Harris is the most beautiful book I’ve read this year.
  17. As you’re growing up, you’re becoming more and more comfortable with yourself.
  18. Sometimes you just have to force yourself to get out of bed and live. Whether you feel like it or not. 
  19. You have to learn to forgive yourself for all the relapses, lost motivation and failings. We are only humans.
