What I learned in 2011

These " Things I needed to know in life I learned from " or "The things I learned " lists have become quite popular since my moms 50th Birthday list I made her. So, I decided to do a the things I learned in 2011 list. Here it is.



The things I learned in 2011

Dressing up with friends and ringing in the New Year is a lot of fun
New Years means new you
The longer you wait to do something the harder it is to do it and the easier it is to not do it
Dont set goals since they are never kept. 
Sometimes its ok to just be a better you to do better and be better
Purpose
Check engine light doesnt always mean check engine 
Decisions will need to be made so make them...sometimes not making a decision is your decision and that is ok. 
Going with how you feel to be best is never a wrong thing.
Love can be felt in a lot of different ways
Family memories can be lost in a matter of seconds so back up the ones that really mean something.
Boys are and probably always will be confusing. 
Over analogizing everything just makes things worse.
Hes just not that into you has a lot of truth to the movie
If he hasn't kissed you after say 5 hangouts then he is not going to kiss you

Braces make you look younger no matter what age you are
Changes, although hard at first could possibly be the best thing for someone. 
Things take time to achieve

Just because its Christmas with no snow doesn't mean it won't be a good one. 
Waiting for something, someone, or a situation is worth it sometimes.
People cant be relied on 
Things need to happen sometimes so other things can happen later
A year isn't as long as it was when you were a kid
