Fruitful Thoughts

Once in our twenties we thought we would never die

I asked if we could go out and talk to the crowd and ask “Please, can you not take your phones out? Let’s just enjoy this with our eyes and ears.” And people were like “Oh, people are going to get upset and get mad.” But we tried it and people loved it and people applauded when we asked them for that. They applauded and everyone as a mob agreed, “We don’t like this idea, this practice.” Because I think it’s distracting for the people in the back who are trying to really watch and they see a sea of blue screens in front of them, between them and the artist.

Some brief notes to my (could-be) future daughter

 A properly-fitting bra is not a luxury. It is a necessity.

 Wear what makes you feel gracefully at ease.

 Love the world unconditionally.

 Seek beauty in all things.

 Buy your friends dinner when you can.

 Try with all your might to keep in contact with far-away friends.

 Make the world feel at ease around you.

 Walk with your head up.

 Dental hygiene is not multiple choice.

 Your GPA is not a confession of your character. It is, however, a personal testament of your ability to over come. 

 Pick a perfume

 A woman is a woman is a woman.

 Love your fellow woman with all your heart and soul.

 Exercise to be strong and healthy. A beautiful soul needs a sturdy vessel.

 Do not take sex lightly.

 I mean it.

 Anna Karenina. I’d like it if you read it.

 Men are effectively idiots until the age of …

 Carbohydrates are not the enemy. 

Involve yourself in an organized activity of your choosing.

 Listen to classical music occasionally.

 Well-fitting and modest is ALWAYS sexier than too small and tight.

 Who cares if glitter isn’t tasteful?

 It’s too much eyeliner if you have to ask

 Humility and subservience are not synonyms.

 Wash your face twice per day.

 Make up for it later if you can’t.

 Find at least three green vegetables you can tolerate.

 A smoothie is not a meal.

 Expect the best from everyone.

 People will let you down.

 Bask in the sun (wearing a sunhat and SPF 90).

 There is a certain kind of man you need to avoid at all costs.

 You’ll know it when you meet him.

 Give thoughtful gifts.

 Exfoliation in moderation.

 If it’s worth fighting for, fight fiercely

 Take pictures, but not too many.

 Chocolate ice cream might just be a permanent fix.
