21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves:
Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
Camille, 56:Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
Jackson, 57:No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
Vicki, 47:You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
Katelyn, 30:Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9:I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.
I am probably one of the easiest person to be around. I don’t get bored easy. If i can observe other people around me it’s total amusement. Fuck staring at a phone all day, I can observe walks of life living their daily life.
I’ve been going to the boxing gym 3 days in a row. I am physically tired, my body aches but my spirit is strong. I plan on going at least 4-6 days a week. For once I want to be able to see a flat stomach on me lol
2 of my friends are getting married this summer, I need to get get around 180 at least by July.

I’l be in training mode, i’ll buy a heavy bag and train my little cousins how to fight!
During that down time i’ll take online courses and study for my ccna certification. this is pretty important for my career in system admin. With this i can make at least 50-75k. In this life time I’ll need a couple of certificates to eventually be able to make 6 figures. I’ll pursue my dream of being a photojournalist, I’ve been taking a lot more photos but haven’t been able to post them because post processing on this slow ass laptop is dreadful so I’m going to build my own editing machine with a budget of 1200.

I really want thie 21:9 ratio 29in asus monitor. ultra wide screen is pretty awesome.
I’ve been meeting people whenever I can. I really think having someone lied to me in the last encounter with someone who i really did cared for and always tried to be mindful of the situation. If i was obsessed and smothering her i would of visited her without a damn problem. I fly for free for Christ sake, but I tried to be understanding thinking she’s being honest back, but that wasn’t the case. I felt like I was spat in the face and its made me hesitant to open up to other women. I see myself a honorable man if you treat me with respect, but if you do me really wrong I’ll turn into a very angry person but later on I’ll cool down. If this person were to man up and just apologize. Just admit she was at the wrong. It would probably benefit her more than me, because in the end you’re the one lying to yourself and everyone.

This is a true rant because I am all over the place. I’ve had time to figure out what style i want to be consistent with and I think I’ve found it. I’m a fan of style from the 1950’s where men wore suits that fit, not skin tight or super skinny. just well made and comfortable. Boots, watches well groomed and all. I don’t think I”m a hipster but with all the high tech and colorful things going on in the future and present. I appreciating more of the old and what got us to this era. I’m blending in modern and old.
I’ve recently gotten into watches and one day I’ll have a submariner rolex. 8000 watch but a time piece of that caliper is timeless and it has really helped me with not using my phone a lot in social settings because I usually check for the time. ahhh yea i think this rant is done
Once, I wrestled with the difficult question of how one should live life. Now I feel I understand I want to live an interesting life, but it’s still unclear how I should do it. Somewhere along the line idling away my time doing nothing, I realized that there’s nothing else I need to do beside live an interesting life and watch it unravel.
