May 1st 2000. 9:20 pm. It was 60 degrees in Wichita Kansas, the moon was waning. Mikinley Elise was born. 

Fast forward 17 years and I’m the ripe age of seventeen

I believe I am a somewhat wise seventeen year old and throughout my seventeen years of life I have learned a few things, a few tips and tricks I guess. 

Here goes nothing, 

Merely ten seconds of courage is all you need most of the time.

Drink loads of tea it will be sure to make you feel better.Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 10.11.53 PMEverything. Happens. For. A. Reason.

Wear bell bottoms, in that case wear whatever the hell you want, the compliments are sure to outshine the weird glares.

Your friends are a reflection of you. They should lift you up not bring you down.

Smile at everyone.

Don’t worry so much about failing a test or missing a problem at least you didn’t make a zero, and if you did it doesn’t define you as much as you think it does.

Bring headphones everywhere, you never know when you might need to escape the world around you.

Zodiac characteristics are mad accurate, the stars don’t lie.

Dipping sauces make everything better.

Being “quiet” isn’t a bad thing, it just gives you more time to pay attention to the small aspects of your surroundings.

Don’t think too far into things, you’ll wig yourself out. Act on the first instinct, you won’t be sorry.

You’re siblings aren’t all that bad, you might as well make them your best friends.

Change is the best.

Your thoughts & words have as much power as your actions.

God is always listening and knows more about what you need than you ever will.

Age is but a number.

Listen to song lyrics they provide the best stories and remedies.

You never know until you ask.

Anything that gets your heart racing is worth trying.

Baths and sleep cure just about everything, well for a little bit at least.

*Makes wish, blows out candles.*
