  3. Always think before you speak.
  4. Choose your battles.
  5. Re-clasping your bra while driving is harder than you think it is.

  7. You’re not going to marry Oscar Isaac or Diego Luna. You’re just not.
  8. Exercise is never going to be fun.

  10. White people are the worst. No, seriously. They are.
  11. Make an effort to stay in touch with your friends.

  22. You are never too old for fantasy and science fiction.
