Because wordnerd is my girl in south Louisiana, I will give you some rules of life, according to moi:
1. To thine own self be true. No guilt, baby.
2. Don't give up. Even when you feel like a lone voice in the wilderness.
3. A daily fix of chocolate will keep your moods a little more even.
4. Vote. Every election. No excuses.
5. Read. Everything.
6. Keep up with current events. It's really NOT all about you.
7. When it comes to politics, be partisan. Partisanship is good. That's why we have more than one party. Differences matter.
8. Character matters. Expect the best of others. And yourself. Each day is a fresh start.
9. If you don't love animals, I want nothing to do with you.
10. Listen more. It's the best way to learn.
That's it now. I'm not tagging anyone this time. Feel free to jump in though. It's good to know where others are coming from.
