Stick With A Career Path Even If It's Hard At A the Beginning: While fun, it was hard to find my place here at first, but I held out and here I am!3. Quit a Job if you hate it: Uhh learned this one early, after being tossed into a dumpster by a co-worker at one of my jobs I knew I needed OUT!4. Dress accordingly to what you think looks good, not what other people think looks good: I've always just done my thing with clothes, not really caring about what's in or out, just whatever is comfy and fits!**5. How To Throw A Dinner Party: Oh no way, wouldn't even know where to start. Do I need Matching silverware? Because right now I have three different kinds that make my "set".6.

It is WEIRD, yet really cool.14.
