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 that one math test. 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. Try out for the team. Have feelings for your best friend. Believe that everything happens for a reason. Look at the stars and finally realize just how small you are. Travel for a year and look at the world differently when you come back. Eat that red velvet cupcake. Never regret anything, at one time it was exactly what you wanted. Forgive and forget. Don't hold anything back. Live for the music, the moments. Because nobody lives forever, and life is really, really short.
