Mostly? These guys
- it really is all about relationship.
- technology is overrated.
- romance was never not annoying.
- the world is a fascinating place, full of things we don't yet know and get to be curious about. For instance:
- physics=awesome. dance=awesome. middle school girls' basketball=awesome. video games=awesome. percy jackson=awesome. paradox=awesome. rock climbing=awesome. social justice=awesome.
- road-trip sing-a-longs may be the makings of heaven.
- awkwardness is actually appealing.
- joy and pain are for everyone, no matter how good you are, no matter how old you are.
- generally: if it isn't fun, it isn't worth it...and there are a million ways to make almost any given thing FUN.
- we are, all of us, so fragile and so permeable. those of us who've learned to curl up inside makeshift shells might do well to poke our heads out, now and then - there's a lot of goodness to be soaked up.
