Some dos and don'ts of life which I've discovered during my 24 years on this planet.
- Try things, even if you're not sure where they'll lead. My PGCE course last year probably put me off
full time teaching for life, or at least a few years, but I got friends out of it, and now I know one thing
which I don't want to do with my life, so I'm closer to working out what I WILL do with it.
- Learn and use grammar/punctuation properly. Life's short, but not too short to take a moment to
consider whether you actually need that apostrophe or not.
- Learn Latin: it's awesome.
- Wear hats. As many different ones as possible.
- Fart in public. Just the once to see if you can get away with it.
- Be afraid to like what you like, no matter how old you are. I play with Lego because it's fun, I
watch Spongebob because it makes me laugh and I'm learning to knit because I think it's cool.
- Worry too much about what people think of you. I reckon the degree to which you worry about what
someone thinks of you should be directly proportional to how much you respect and like them.
- Live like everyday was your last: you'd make yourself sick.
- Use washing up liquid as a substitute for washing machine tablets. Doesn't work: floods the kitchen.
And if you take just one thing from this bloglet, I hope it's this:
Don't, whatever you do, ever grow up.
