All That I Learnt…

by alexxxxxandra

I’ve finished my degree and sent off very last Stag. So it seems only fair to round up everything I’ve learnt in the past 3 years (hint: very little of it came from my course at all). 


  1. 9 times out of 10, whatever that person said, was not meant to offend. Being offended often says more about you than it does about the person that said it.
  2. It’s easy to be idealistic if you’re rich.
  3. All the good things should be internalised forever. The rest is debris.
  4. Dominos should never be consumed more than once in a week. Your bank balance will not thank you.
  5. Everyone will let you down. Even the people you thought never could. 
  6. Either hold a grudge, and never speak to that person again, or let it go. 
  7. If you say you forgive someone, you have to mean it. You have to forget what they did.
  8. Some people do not deserve your forgiveness.
  9. I will never, ever be a size 10 and it only matters if I think it does.
  10. Praise isn’t given enough. Know your own worth.
  11. There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.
  12. The last person in the room clapping for you every time, the person who always has your back…they’re the one. The rest don’t matter.
  13. 5 friends (or 4, or 3, or 2 or 1) that you can call at 5am and sob to are worth more than 500 who you can’t.
  14. The ones to let into your heart are the ones who’ve seen your worst and love you anyway.
  15. You will always think more on the things you have said/done than anyone one else will do.
  16. The longer you leave something you’re frightened of, the worse it will be.
  17. The smartest people I know never got good grades. Intelligence isn’t a fucking number.
  18. Pick yourself up and pick your friends up. 
  19. When someone impresses you, tell them. 
  20. So what if you behave badly sometimes? No one gets it right 100% of the time.
  21. Surround yourself with good people.
  22. Having a good, kind heart is worth more than any other thing in this world and anyone who tells you differently is wrong. 

With my last Stag. Thank you Surrey.
