A Years Worth of Lessons…


Happy New Year’s Eve! I thought I’d end this year with the top ten lessons that I learned in 2015. I will hopefully not repeat these in 2016 ;).

To begin…

  1. It is not a good idea to use a Rip Stick. Yes. I was told by more than 3 people that it was not a good idea. Yes. I did have to ride one to find this out. And yes. I also took a trip to the doctor on this one. KpSQWZY
  2. It is best to take Highway 45 to Houston from Dallas. Not Highway 35. My mother spent her morning in tears over this one thinking I would never make it back home. Thankfully, the GPS had already “recalculated” and I did, in fact, make it home. I don’t think my mother has recovered yet. tumblr_mjjphv5p841rxagu2o1_500
  3. When you sleep on a bus, a picture will be taken or people will mess with you. It is inevitable. Unfortunately, this will probably become a repeated mistake. enhanced-buzz-19435-1384296020-15
  4. Always check the cake mix you are buying. You might accidentally get brownies instead. It leaves you with a surprising result, but it’s better than burning the food. giphy-5
  5. If you put enough bobby pins and hairspray in your hair… it will stay in place. After cutting 7 inches off my hair and more for layers, I quickly learned that if I wanted to put my hair up that was the way to go.  tumblr_inline_moihw6UP8E1qz4rgp
  6. Ceramics are so much fun. It’s like taking the mud pies I used to make as a child to a whole new level. I’ve come to realize that my art class, where we worked on ceramics for the first semester, has me hooked. I just can’t get enough of it. 238
  7. Life is way more interesting when you don’t plan every single moment. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a huge planner, but I’ve learned that sometimes when you let the unpredictable things in life happen and have an open mind about it, you get your best memories from it. gif-wind
  8. My mother is always right. So many time this year my mother has been proven a genius. Her words echo across my mind. “Gracie, you were not built for a rip stick”, “Gracie, you shouldn’t make plans for this afternoon, your boyfriend will want to hang out with you”, and the best, “Gracie, you are definitely on the wrong highway”. Sofia-Vergara-GIF-14
  9. No one likes to compete with someone who always wins. It’s a good lesson that I will continue to ignore. Especially with this new Fitbit I got. My brother and I are taking the whole thing to the next level. It’s serious. Super serious. anigif_enhanced-buzz-13914-1379370734-22
  10. God’s got my life under control. Why do I doubt Him? I’m not sure, but who better to trust with my life?

 John 16:33 “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
