  1. Don’t kiss a girl who isn’t excited to see you.
  2. Talk to your father more. He’s shy.

  4. Being the life of the party often means being the embarrassing story other people tell the next day.
  5. Motivation comes from starting, not the other way around.
  6. You don’t really need two orders of fries.
  7. Berating women doesn’t make you witty or funny.
  8. Just 30 minutes of sunlight a day is a world of difference.
  9. Sit still and pay attention once in a while.
  10. It’s okay to express your feminine side.
