1. you can game everything
    school work whatever just meet the minimum requirements and go from there. don't stress.
  2. you're probably not going to be #1 and that's fine
    be okay with second fiddle. be okay with not being the boss or the protagonist. who gives a shit.
  3. learn to settle
    you can't differentiate between top shelf and rail anyways so why bother trying. save your money and enjoy the inebriation which is the real reason you came to the bar.
  4. have options
    I worked in 2 departments for a year before getting the news that I'd have to pick one. I picked the better one. if I didn't have options I'd be in the dumpster fire one. it was completely worth it.
  5. get crossfaded once in a while
  6. try hallucinogens
