(even as a rare reader, I love.)

A friend sent me the link to  Ryan O’Connell’s “How to be a 20-Something“. The post had me laughing, agreeing, and even pushed me into some deep thought.

Moments that I found particularly striking and relevant, as of late:

  • Move into an apartment on the corner of Overpriced and Dangerous.
  • Figure if you’re not going to be successful, who the hell is?
  • Think about having children when you stop acting like a child.
  • Regardless of the outcome, feel proud of yourself for being able to love someone in a healthy way.
  • Start your twenties with a lot of friends and leave with a few good ones.

here’s to good advice,

“Eyes closed or open, just dream. No matter how wide awake to the world I am, I dream. I dream of moments. At a party. On the red carpet. I dream while lounging at home or running errands midday…Right there, a dream will start. I run with my imagination, letting it play out all sorts of scenarios…Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise: dreaming is an absolutely required activity.” -Rachel Zoe
