Life doesn’t rhyme. Your first kiss isn’t as important as your last. Get caught in the rain. Laugh out loud while you’re alone. Go on adventures and get lost. Paint even though you’re not an artist. Really get to know people. Accept that you will fail at something in life. Get your heart broken and put the pieces back together. Put your hand up in class only to get the answer wrong. Wonder about things. Learn. Remember that sunrises are free. Let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you. Work bad hair days. Get drunk and tell people how you really feel at 4am. Believe that everything happens for a reason. Look at the stars and finally realize how small you are. Travel for a year and look at the world differently when you come back. Eat the red velvet cake. Never regret anything. Forgive and forget. Don’t hold anything back. Live for the music, the moments. Because nobody lives forever, and life is really really short.
