Another list!

Some things I've learned

I don't really like wearing make-up, it makes your face feel icky and your eyes itch.

Caffeine and sugar don't fix everything...neither does chocolate.

Thinking for yourself is a lot of fun.

When you want the bus to be early it will be late, when you want it to be late it will be on time and when you want it to be on time it will be both.

I really like people. They are the most fascinating thing and I love to know interesting people.

Red is the best colour, no matter what you say (closely followed by purple).

Mothers can't fix everything, sometimes you just gotta do it the hard way: alone.

Glasses always make guys look hotter. No exceptions.

Basing your self-worth against someone else is worthless.

I really can't stand umbrelles, your gonna get wet anyway.

My stories are never linear, I just learned this today, but I don't even think of stories that way, they are always bits and pieces from the present and past, sometimes in the future. I don't think I'll ever be able to write linear stories because of this.

Fashion magazines are really boring. The last one I bought was a couple of months ago and I didn't even read it.

My body was built for skinny jeans.

Sometimes, you should go see the doctor when your sick...taking copious amounts of cold medicines wont always help.

I judge people to harshly, and to often. I had a horrible, awesome moment this week when I was sitting in class listening to one of the guys read his essay out loud. It was a really good essay, interesting, funny insightful all that other bullshit, but I loved it and as I was listening to him I realized how I had completely misjudged his character. I'd had him down as this dumb jock and didn't like him WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING HIM. Anyway, this paper he read gave a completely different person I'd blindly assumed and I felt really bad cause if I hadn't done that I would totally have been friends with him. He genuinely seems like a really cool guy. I needed to explain this story cause that was definitely and 'uh huh!' moment for me.

I also learned sentence structure! YAY! I know I don't always practice correct sentence structure, but I know what it looks like and understand it, so that is awesome.

K so that's my 'things I've learned list' sorta like the other one I wrote, but not... I'm gonna post my summer book list soon after work, so look for that! Oh and if you haven't figured it out, I really like to write lists! :)
