BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED
Most of these are from my father.
- •Be nice to everybody. Even the people who are mean to you for no reason.In the third grade a girl told me I was " un pajaro feo" which translates to "an ugly bird". I told my dad this thinking he would help me come up with a meaner comeback. Instead he told me to call her "un mariposa linda" which means "a pretty butterfly". It didn't make sense to me but the next day I told her anyways. We became biffles after that. And she apologized for being such a bitch. This piece of advise has always steered me away from drama.
- •A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycleThis is a line from the movie The To Do List. This is the kind of advise I'll be giving to my sister who is going through some intense boy craze stage.
- •Whatever you do, don't stopMy dad would like to remind me this every once in a while. He got it from the Confucius quote "It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop." Remembering this has kept me sane while perusing acting.
- •Start exercising as early on as you can.My mother would practically beg me to workout with her in high school and only sometimes would I actually join her. But she always told me its a lot easier getting into shape when you're younger which will make it easier to maintain when you're older. Now I'm wishing I listened to her more. As soon as your metabolism slows, it becomes so much harder to stay fit.
