19 years, 19 lessons
As ironic as it is I’m writing this while listening to “My Funny Valentine by Chet Baker”. In two days, on Valentines day I’ll be entering my last year as a teenager. I’ll be 19, finally. For the sake of turning another year older, I though it would be appropriate to write down nineteen lessons that I’ve learned over the course of my life.

Recycling is key
Life does not always go the way you planned. there is no reason to cry, just keep trying
