*Today I’m sharing a blog post that my son, Ben, wrote. Enjoy!*
My mother made a list about what she learned in 40 years.
So I decided I would make a list with less than half the things she learned.
2o Things I’ve Learned In 13 Years
1: Watch “Fresh Prince of Belair”.
2: If your dad has any old consoles, play them.
3: Don’t focus on getting a girlfriend, watch other couples and the drama :D.
4: Do Not repeat what other people say until you know what they’re saying (if you think it’s an intellectual joke and you can’t figure it out, just don’t.)
5: If you don’t know an excuse to something, simply say, “*ahem* IT’S BECAUSE I’M BATMAN!”.
6: DO NOT be the annoying person that everyone hates (due to being bossy, demanding, thinking you’re the best at everything…).
7: If you’re meeting someone new, leave them with a good impression.
8: If your friends like something, look into it and see if you might like it.
9: Don’t pretend you like something, unless it’s food you’re being forced to like.
10: If you’re a kid or teenager, watch class drama and make fun of it 😀 (due to this, a friend and I are known to last year’s teacher as “the 2 old men in the balcony from the Muppets”).
11: If your dad has a TV show he wants to show you, watch it and see for yourself if it’s good or bad ( try this if you’re actually similar to your father ).
12: Don’t swear if you want to be a “cool kid”. The “Cool kids” swear because they hear it from their parents or older kids or TV.
13: An “Ass” is a wild donkey, they live in Asia and Africa. Do not describe a really awesome person as a “Bad Ass”. You’re saying they are a “bad wild donkey”.
14: If you’re a nerd, use it to your advantage in life and use your brains instead of wanting to be different.
15: @Moms and Dads
Video games ARE NOT bad. They are a great learning experience of puzzles, strategy, reacting, Action, Platforming, Adapting and learning. You’re just jealous you did not have them in your day.
16: Watch Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5, and any other major sci fi show that are good.
17: Be yourself! Don’t be funny if you’re not that funny, or something else.
18: Get these references: “Luke I am your father”, “I love you! – I know.”, “I heard you were bit by a cobra – Yea, after 5 days of agonizing pain, the cobra died.”
19: I’m getting too old for this… by this I mean everything…
20: Don’t commit to anything yet. Life’s just easier that way 😀
