7: How to Change a Toilet Paper Roll I decided to begin this book with the must challenging lesson of all. If you can successfully master this chore, you can handle anything life (s**t happens) throws at you. You know you are on your own when there is nobody around to replace the toilet paper . Did you think it just never ran out or that perhaps somehow regenerated itself. Well, the truth is-a grown-up replaced it for you. There you have it...there is no TP fairy! It was I...over and over and over again for eighteen years! There are 3 stages of grief you may experience before you accept the loss of the TP replacer. 1.Denial: s**t, I can't believe there's no toilet paper. 2.Anger: S**T, I CAN'T BELIEVE THERE IS NO TP! 3.Depression: s**t, the toilet paper roll feels soooo empty...sniff,sniff. 4.Bargaining: I will never drink again if you replace it for me. 5.Acceptance: s**t, I'm on my own, on the throne...
8: Knowledge is power,so always be grateful for any opportunity to learn something "knew".
9: Be your own Superhero Don't wait for someone else to swoop in and rescue you. It works well in the movies,and is very romantic-but you need to be able to count on you! If you give up your power to another individual(boyfriend) you may find yourself becoming more and more dependent on this person.This will only lead to you believing more in them and less in you. Superhero powers are born of your passion, and it is this passion that will guide you to your desired career. Independence,security,and a sense of accomplishment are the rewards of your chosen profession.Yes,independence-finally getting to call the shots and making choices for yourself! When making these choices always remember the intuition component of your superpowers. Once you have a grip on your superpowers,here is the twist. It is ok(fun) to be swept off your feet,as long as you know you can land back on them.
10: Too Alluring
11: Guyfishing There are plenty of fish in the sea,lake,stream, river and college campus. Just in case you are experiencing a drought on campus,grab your fly rod and head to the nearest body of water. Do you have any idea what the men to women ratio is out there? It's definitely in your favor.There are so many men scattered about the river you won't even have to touch a fish. Enjoy the fun part of catching and reeling it in and having the guy nearest to you(this position strategically planned) release the catch from your rod. Share this "hobby" with your friends. For safety reasons, you should never fish alone,or wear the super short shorts on opposite page.
13: Nutrition The most important rule to remember concerning nutrition is: The 5 second rule is something a guy made up. Refer to mom's rule: If it hits the floor,it's good no more. The Freshman 15 is NOT a myth. It sneaks up on you and grabs you by the thighs. You wake up one day and your Uggs are the only things that fit...ugg! Follow the IN list for a fit Freshman IN OUT organic processed food whole grains white flour filtered water soda green tea milk shakes seafood red meat chicken cheese burgers popcorn chips red wine* wine coolers* dark chocolate milk chocolate salad/veggies cheese fries IN moderation m&m's (only ones with W's) pizza beer* red meat ice cream *(of age of course:)
15: Magic True magic comes from having a light and open heart. Believing in your dream is the first step in achieving it. You can only attract the things you want when you focus on them Never take yourself to seriously.
