Ladies and Gentlemen of Atlantis Online. Wear
sunscreen. If I could offer you only one tip for
the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term
benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no
basis more reliable than my own meandering
experience... I will dispense this advice now

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh,
nevermind, you will not understand the power and
beauty of your youth until they've faded. But
trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos
of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp
now, how much possibility lay before you and how
fabulous you really looked. You are NOT as fat as
you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know
that worrying is as effective as trying to solve
an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real
troubles in life are apt to be things that never
crossed your worried mind; the kind that
blindsides you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday

Do one thing everyday that scares you.


Don't be reckless with other peoples hearts.
Don't put up with people who are reckless with yours.


Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes
you're ahead, sometimes you're behind. The race is
long, and in the end, it's only with yourself.

Remember compliments you receive.
Forget the insults.
If you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Keep your old love letters.
Throw away your old bank statements.


Do not feel guilty if you don't know what you
wanna do with your life,... the most interesting
people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted
to do with their lives, some of the most
interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll
have children, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll
divorce at 40. Maybe you'll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary....
Whatever you do, don't congratulate yourself too
much or berate yourself either - your choices are
half chance, so are everybody else's.

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can...
don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it...
it's the greatest instrument you'll ever own.

Dance... even if you have nowhere to do it but in
your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them.

Do NOT read beauty magazines they will only make you feel UGLY.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they
might be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings;
They're your best link to your past, and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future

Understand that friends come and go, but for the
precious few you should hold on. Work hard to
bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because
the older you get, the more you need the people
you knew when you were young.

Live in New York City once, but leave before it
makes you hard. Live in Northern California once,
but, leave before it makes you soft.


Accept certain inalienable truths. Prices will
rise, Politicians will philander, you too will get
old. And when you do, you'll fantasize that when
you were young, prices were reasonable,
politicians were noble, and children respected
their elders.

Respect your elders

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe
you'll have a trust fund, maybe you'll have a
wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out.

Don't mess too much with your hair,
or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient
with those who supply it. Advice is a form of
nostalgia; dispensing it is a way of fishing the
past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting
over the ugly parts, and recycling it for more
than its worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

I used to love this song back in my teenage years, I had forgot all about it.  Thanks for the refresher, it brings back a lot of good memories.
