27 Thoughts From 27 Years

Today is my birthday, and I am 27, as the title so graciously alludes. Admittedly much of what I learned in the first portion of that time was incidental stuff, like walking and controlling my drooling, but that later portion of it has been filled with insights and experiences, that allow me to now bestow a smidgen of my wisdom onto the masses. in no particular order...

1. If you want to do something, do it. 
2. Everyone has a story, most suck.
3. You can't force relationships. (platonic or romantic)
4. Surround yourself with people who invigorate you. 
5. Don't live half assed. 

6. You don't want to be the person who is handed everything.
7. Live a life that inspires others to live a life that inspires.
8. You never know who is going to be a character in your stories. 
9. Sleep is overrated.
10. Intellectual conversations are hard to come by, cherish them.

11. Exist outside your comfort zone. 
12. Don't expect reciprocation for favors, always reciprocate. 
13. Fear is stupid. 
14. Passion is paramount to prestige
15. Change the world, for the better. 
16. Your dream job exists, make it yours.
17. Nothing is worth being miserable. 
18. Always choose the option that will lead to a better story.
19. If you're not learning anything, the conversation is frivolous. 
20. Ameliorate your lexicon.  
21. The answer is usually right in front of you.
22. Perspective can change everything. 
23. Pedanticism is unbecoming, so is ignorance. 
24. Anger is inefficient, use diplomacy. 

25. Nice guys don't finish last, boring guys do.
26. Question more.
27. Live in a way that the line at your funeral stretches out the door and down the block.
