Disclaimer: I don’t know what an ode is so take this all with a grain of salt…..or a big boulder landing on your head. Whatever floats your boat!
I’ve seen it all!
Of course I’m joking when I type that, but for someone who was born just before the dawn of the digital age I feel like that. Sometimes I think I’ve seen more in my 25 yrs of life than my grandmother has seen in her 90yrs of life! Progression these days is well progressing at an alarmingly high rate and stuff that was one way today, could quite possibly be a completely different way tomorrow or five minutes from now! For heaven sakes Pluto used to be a planet when I was a kid people! The things that we all thought were fundamental building blocks of life have turned out to be not so fundamental. Which brings me to today’s blog entry. I recently turned 25 and was feeling rather overwhelmed that I have reached this age(call it a quarter life crisis if you will) and what do I do when I feel overwhelmed? I Blog. In turn, I’ve decided to do a 15 part series on the unwisdom I’ve gained over the past 25 years. As always the stuff I present to you here are just my own thoughts and philosophies on life. Whether you get a laugh out of this or an epiphany I hope you enjoy it! And take a moment to think about the things you’ve have learned or unlearned in your lifetime.
The following is a list of the 15 parts, check back tomorrow for Part One!
1. Just because you grew apart doesn’t mean you can’t grow back together
2. Listen to your parents
3. Don’t listen to your parents
4. You have standards for a reason
5. Read stuff
6. Grudges are for babies
7. Drama is an extra curricular activity not a way of life
8. It’s never too late to change your mind
9. You will never be consistent, deal with it
10. Sometimes you mix together two things that you hate and it turns into something you love
11. Quality will always win over quantity
12. Youthfulness is a state of mind
13. Don’t be afraid of doing the things that scare you
14. Love comes in unlimited forms
15. You don’t know shit!

The first two quotes are by me and the rest are from some lovely people here on wordpress that are spreading acceptance with every word. Check out their blogs to be inspired! The more people willing to open their minds the better this world becomes!
“The core quality of equality is acceptance of difference.”
“Equality is not about rights, it’s about acceptance. If you accept someone for who they are you will not withhold their rights!”
“…if you don’t like drugs, do you take drugs? No.
If you don’t like jalapenos, do you eat them? No.
If you don’t like online shopping do you do it? No.”
“So what’s different? If you don’t like gay marriage don’t marry someone of the same sex.” http://livingasisabella.wordpress.com/2013/03/28/controversy-of-the-gay-type/
everyone should love
and not anyone should say
who or who cannot
“Don’t sacrifice the special parts of yourself because other people can’t handle your badassness”
