15 things I learned in 2015

  1. It’s okay to be alone, it’s okay to be lonely. I learned most about myself in hours of silence rather than than in a crowded room.
  2. Compassion and empathy for your fellow human are the most important qualities to have.
  3. Art can save you.
  4. There is a difference between having time and making time. Remember this next time you say “I don’t have time” and remember this next time he says the same.
  5. Your friendships are far more important than any romantic relationship (at least right now, maybe ask me this again when I’m 30).
  6. If you are hurting, tell someone. It doesn’t make you weak.
  7. Don’t hold on to preconceived notions, and don’t make assumptions. Give everyone and everything a fair chance.
  8. Keep your heart open.
  9. How to actually feed myself and not end up subsisting on a diet of coffee, pasta, and cereal.
  10. Sometimes the person you want the most is the one you’re best without.
  11. You dreams are important.
  12. If you’re stressed, call your mom. If you’re sad, call your mom. If you’re happy, call your mom.
  13. Sometimes your friends will be at different places than you are, emotionally, and in life. You should start getting used to that.
  14. Friendship with your high school friends isn’t as effortless as it once was. You will have to work to hold on to those people.
  15. If you love someone, for god sakes, tell them.
