words of wisdom for myself

i. there are times when thirst can only be quenched by lemonade, even though it's 11:00 at night, the rest of the family has been in bed for an hour, it's the middle of February and insanely cold. so go for it, make that lemonade and enjoy it too.

ii. sometimes it's okay to stay up really late to finish the book. (even if that means less than six hours of sleep.) just be sure to spring out of bed when mom calls, and make coffee instantly. (and drink it with plenty of cream.) also be sure to apply plenty of under-eye make-up. if the yawns, coffee and headache don't give you away, the dark circles under your eyes will.

you get to use your favorite mug!!

iii. it doesn't matter that it's cold, wet and muddy outside, when you have a good book or an interesting writing prompt. just light some candles, and snuggle up with your book, and be sure to have a notebook and several pens sitting nearby, because they are highly necessary to jot important thoughts/ideas/tasks down. 

iv. take great caution when lighting candles, (see note iii.) and that the wick isn't too close to the glass. as the container may explode randomly. to prevent great injury should this happen, be sure to have the candle some distance away from your person. (and preferably the side that is going to explode should be pointed towards the wall!)

they take you to the places that are beyond your wildest dreams.
v. building snowmen is great fun, although one should keep in mind that they last longer when the snow isn't melting. it is always more fun to have the snowman last longer than two hours without falling over. be sure to take photos of cute snowman, however, in case he does topple.

vi. avoid, at all costs, introductions by william goldman. he's lousy, annoying and disappointing in every way. 

vii. it would be better to drink more water. headaches are never fun, and maybe if one thought of water instead of black tea/coffee in the morning first thing, one might be able to avoid nasty headaches and dizziness. (isn't that an interesting thought!)

viii. it is always acceptable to take more photos of little siblings. nobody, (except maybe them) is going to complain about more pictures of ridiculously cute little kids. 

ix. when you are running a little behind and you pull into to coffee shop drive through, it is acceptable to honk at the car in front of you when they don't notice it's their turn to order. (although be cautious with this one, because you might know the person pretty well, and you just might hear about it later. :) 

x. gold eyeshadow will brighten ones mood considerably! 


xi. fear of flying and heights diminishes with the adventure of travel. it is possible to get over fears for the chance of adventure.

xii. things happen. life isn't always great. it may seem perfect for a moment, but sometimes it's hurts. sometimes it's scary, and painful , but life can be beautiful too sometimes.

xiii. friends are one of the most beautiful things in the world.

xiv. dress-up parties with girls are lots of fun. but left over, slept on curls aren't so fun. Just be sure to throw on some extra lipstick and eyeshadow and hope people don't notice. :)

xv. when on road trips on windy days, it is helpful to pull your hair back before stepping in the car, because it just might blow everywhere and be quite ridiculous. 

xvi. also, when on said road trip, getting a mountian dew, a nasty coffee (gas-station coffee is horrible!) and a bag of yummy chips will be quite helpful in keeping you awake and alert. (if nothing else, the taste of the coffee will. :)
