What I Whsh I'd Known Sooner

For the past year or two, I have devoted a setion of my home page on the Internet to a list entitled "What I wish I'd Known Sooner." Since I am seventeem. There are a lot of stupid things I do that make me wish I had already known not to do them! Anyone can add to this list- I have recived additions from all over the world, by people of all ages. I often add to it myself (after the fact!)

Some are Light hearted, Some are serious,all are very true. Here are a few of the gems:

-Don't drink grape juice while wearing a white shirt and driving to school.
-Don't let your life wait for other people.
-Dropping a cellular phone into a bathtub of water kinda kills the phone.
-Your mother will find out if you dye your hair purple.
-You haven't really lived until you've gotten a 48 on an Advanced Placement U.S. History test.
-Don't ever fall in love with someone who is more than one thousand miles away from you. It usually doesn't work.
-Milk crates makes boring pets.
-If it hurts, DON'T DO IT AGAIN!
-That which does not kill you will ultimately make you stronger.
-Speaking in public gets easier with practice.
-Don't sprint around the pool!
-Ten years from now most of what we freak out about won't make any difference.
-All that's gold doesn't glisten.
-Zits always pop up when you really can't afford for them to pop up.
-Always stay after class because that's where connections are made.
-When in doubt, duck. When certain, don't bother, 'cuz you're already screwed.
-While driving a car through a gate, always, ALWAYS make sure the gate is open! The consequences might be fatal to your car.
-If you're not living (I mean really living), you're dead already.
-Never pierce your belly button in the dark.
-Just because someone flirts with you incessantly doesn't necessarily mean he or she likes you.
-If your calculus teacher tells you to quit talking after a test or he'll give you a zero for your test grade, he means it. Really.
-Sometimes smart people can do very, very, silly things.
-Being nice to people will get you far.
-The one person you can truly love is often right in front of you.
-Never, ever, EVER let a member of the opposite gender make you compromise your standards. Never.
-Nothing is ever too good to be true (said by Michael Faraday).
-If you start to like a girl, her roommate will immediately start liking you.
-Parents aren't around forever, and you need to treasure them while they are.
-Don't take the SAT twice if you already have a good score in the first place.
-Never do something if the risk is greater than the reward.
-Think carefully before you act.
-Dreaming and doing go hand in hand.
-Life moves fast, but not so fast that you can't slow down to enjoy it.
-Instead of waiting for life to get better, do something about it.
-You REALLY should do what needs to be done NOW, and not later. Procrastination is the easiest way, but not the most profitable.
-If your intuition is telling you to not do something, then don't. Your intuition is not kidding!
-Cereal is a vital stable for for all college students. Who cares how ridiculous you look eating it at 7:30 p.m.?
-If he doesn't respect you, then he's not worth any of your time.
-Learn to play an electric guitar: young women really dig it.
-Don't juggle knives unless you're really, really good at it.
-If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then give up. No sense in being ridiculous about it.
-Sticking things up your nose isn't the smartest idea in the world.
-You can't light fireworks in the basement and not get caught.
-Hair is flammable. Very flammable.
-Never ever trust your friend with a pair of scissors against your hair.
-Dyeing hair strawberry blond that is already strawberry blond makes it turn strawberry pink.
-White dogs and black pants don't mix.
-God doesn't make junk!
-Someday you will look back on this and it will all seem funny.
-You never know when you're making a memory.
-The heart does heal, and you will love like this again-- except when you do, you'll deny that you ever loved like this before.
-Nothing matters if you don't have loved ones to share it with. Your siblings are incredibly precious. If you don't know this now, you will--trust me!
-If you can laugh at yourself, you are going to be fine.
-If you allow others to laugh with you, you'll be great!
-Kissing is the most fun thing. Dancing is almost as fun.
