Remember those quotes we’d spend hours color coding for our away messages? I’ll never look at Arial size 8 font the same way again.
I particularly seemed to like this one:
“Belly tops, flip flops
Lemonade, in the shade
Blue skies, hot guys,
Late nights water fights,
Ice creams, sweet dreams,
Bathing suits, shooting hoops,
Party time, schools out,
Sleeping in,sneaking out
The good old days. God I loved all those “hot guys” I used to get in middle school, and all the “hoops” I used to shoot.
Anyway, here are a few things I’ve learned from this summer:
1. I will never be tan. I will accept it and stop subjecting myself to third-degree sunburns. Tomorrow.
2. Having a job where you have sit at a computer all day isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the world. Yes, it can get boring and monotonous and you’ll probably gain 5-30 pounds, but there are plenty of websites to browse, you have time to be productive on your own, and you’re not waitressing. I repeat: you’re not waitressing.
3. When my mom texts me from college that my dog “isn’t doing well” and “probably only has a few more months,” it’s probably not true. She probably just doesn’t like diet dog food.
4. “Cornbread and Butterbeans” will lighten any mood. If you play the banjo I may marry you on the spot.
5. The Real L Word is the best show on television. And the more tattoos you have/jewelry you wear, the more fun your life appears.
6. Website coding is a key skill that’s probably more useful than either of my current majors. Shit.
7. Never trust United airlines or flying in general. Viva la Megabus.
8. Always do your research before selling your old Macbook online. If you get 300 messages in the first day, your price is probably too low. And when you try to go back on the deal the buyer will send you an extremely profane email in all caps.
9. When you’ve been hacking someone’s Facebook for 3 years and they finally change their password, it’s probably time to stop.
10. Visiting people is worth it (as long as you’re not flying). You probably have several long lost friends with whom you exchange several “i miss you, come visit!” “i know i need to!” “ok but seriously do!” “ok i’ll try!” “haha no DO IT! LOL!” Facebook convos a month, so I’m here to say that it’s time to get offline and actually visit them. You’ll get to see somewhere new, the person is probably cooler than you remembered and you’ll always have photos to post when you get back. What could be better?
