This year has been a fun one, full of new experiences and friendships.  Here's a list of fifteen lessons and randomness learned over the course of 2014.

Set alerts for anything and everything or else you just may find that you slept through your ACT (true story).

Always double check for mailboxes that sneak up behind you when you back up.

Sometimes "fake it till you make it" can be a motto.

Never underestimate the power eyeliner or lipstick has on your mood.

I'm a last second gift buyer.  Unfortunately, that's not a good thing.

I crave authenticity, not pep talks.

If I am contemplating chopping my hair off, it's probably Taylor Swift's fault.  I mean, her hair is brilliant.  And did I mention her clothes? I love them.

Once you find the people you click with, spend as much time with them as you can.  They will change you and mold you into a better person.

Sometimes the power lies in knowing when to let the picture pass. 

ten

My car will probably become my second closet in college because I love clothes way too much. Way. Too. Much.

The coolest thing about being 18 is the fact that I can now check out movies at the library. woop, woop.

Community is the backbone of who we can be.

If you

incorporate GIFs into all texts, you definitely should.

You don't have to be good at something to enjoy it.

If you find something you're passionate about, pursue it with intensity.  You'll thank yourself later.

"Two good ol' boys behind the wheel, chasing down bad guys in Lucille" is always a good song to bring out.  Especially when you're riding in Lucille. If you're totally confused about this one, look up "Leverage chase music" on YouTube.  You can thank me later.

Just trying my best to hold onto feelings in the heart of Tennessee.
