On being in the real world

The school you attended may be attractive on a resume, but otherwise we are largely a product of our values, upbringing, and intellect.

Once more with feeling though: Get that degree. It's your ticket in. But what you do after that is defined by who you are, not your school.

On spending

Before spending on treats, be sure you have an emergency fund: 6 months household expenses in savings should you lose your job or fall ill.

On living alone

There is an incredible sense of accomplishment, self-respect, and pride one gains from being completely independent from his or her (1/2)

Live to receive that look of pride from your parent when you refuse money from them and treat them for meals for the rest of their lives.

On being “the right one”

Be like Goldilocks & meet 3 lovers:
1) too hard
2) too soft
3) just right
Can't skip #1 & #2, because without them you won't recognize #3.

… On choosing “the right one”

You need to love someone who makes you hate what you've become, to be sure of who you are and who you never want to be again.
