Some life lessons

I have been slacking with this Blog Everyday in May challenge. I swear I'll get better. Today's topic is: Things you've learned that school won't teach you.

I don't know about you, but I learned so much more in college than just about my major and minor. Anyone agree? I learned more about myself and life than I could have ever imagined! Here's a few examples:

+ Know your limit of drinking. There does come a point when one drink will put you over the limit. This is a balancing act. I quickly learned when to stop drinking in college. Hangovers are the worst. One time during my freshman year, I was so drunk that I ripped my shirt off (had a bra on) and blew my nose into my shirt and then put it back on. REAL CLASSY. I know. My girlfriends were with me the whole time, and we were right outside of my dorm. But still... alcohol does that to you!
+ Bishes will be bishes. You really have to learn who you can trust as a friend. Those who are true friends will stick by your side through thick and thin. I met my three best friends in college and we're still close today. And on the contrary, of course there are girls that I won't ever be friends with again.
+ Making memories is more important than always following rules. If your friend asks you to do something, DO IT! Example: You can re-take a test, but you can't re-take life. Enjoy every moment possible. During my pledge ship to my sorority, I broke a rule and was banned from going to Barndance, which is A Chi O's annual date party. The rule that I broke: I wasn't allowed to drink while pledging, but I did anyways. I am so glad that I did because I went to a Phi Delt date party that night and had a blast with Ross.
+ Know true love when you see it. I know I speak about love a lot in my blog, but it's the most important thing to me. There's nothing better than true love. God created Ross Skinner just for me, and I knew it whenever I met him in college. Don't pass up an opportunity to fall in love!
So what life lessons did you learn that school didn't teach you? I'd love to hear from you!

  1. It's always easier to ask for forgivness than it is permission. That and God is always listening and watching. I try to keep those things in mind before I do somthing. Most times it works and sometimes it don't. Haha

  3. Aww, I really love this! I definitely was one to always follow the rules and now I regret it. There are so many things I would do differently if I could!

  4. I learned to never try to go shot for shot with a 240lb man. It will indefinitely end with you being packed home that night and drunk until 2pm the next day.
