    Hey everyone. Some background- I'm 18 and grew up in Astoria, Queens in NYC. First generation American as my parents are immigrants from Europe. I'm a freshman at NYU.

    1. weird sexual fetishes fuck you up when it comes to actual sex
    2. a healthy lifestyle and diet is very important. we?re still growing.
    3. the ones who question everything are the most successful
    4. the coolest people are those who have had the most profound life experiences. also having a dedicated group of friends while growing up can have greatly beneficial effects to your social life later on.
    5. social life is VERY important.
    6. limit your vices to weekends only.
    7. my diverse college body allowed me to truly grasp diversity. I looked out of my lower class-middle class public school experience in NYC, and realized what true American kids are like, and how different everyone is based on where they are from.
    8. International Asian girls are amazing?
    9. Kids who have been raised in wealthy families turn out to be cooler, smarter, more social, more mature, and overall more developed humans.
    10. Money is highly important. You never know when you?ll need it.
    11. OTC supplements can help. Do your research.
    12. You feel uneasy when you?re finally back with your family again. this was your old lifestyle, and now you realize that you have lost touch with a lot of the things you used to do with your family.
    13. Your parents are just adults who have gone through a similar life process as you.
    14. Girls love the alpha male always.
    15. Realizing what ?groups? are in a social context, and approaching the correct ones that you would best belong in. If you notice, any adult inherently knows how to do this.
    16. Planning your day can help.
    17. Invest in a nice, clean looking place. You don?t want people complaining about the smell, mess, appearance, etc.
    18. I wrote this to my friend when I was high and he thought it was funny. Weed is a blue collar drug, not for white collar people like us.
    19. Be proactive in your life, and spend everyday productively.
    20. Cooler kids know who they are better, and that is because they have had many profound experiences. More experiences -> Self discovery.

    Hope you found that you agreed with some of these. Thanks for reading

    I disagree with number 9 but I guess that depends on where you live. The other ones are good, I have met some crazy people that made me laugh a lot and most of them had a tough start.

    I have to disagree with #9 "9. Kids who have been raised in wealthy families turn out to be cooler, smarter, more social, more mature, and overall more developed humans"I didn't get raised in a wealthy family, I am smart, social and very mature for my age and "fully developed" and last but not least, the most important thing, common sense, which is rare to come by these days.

    I'm not wealthy but I'd think I'm pretty popular amongst my school but I do get what you mean, for the "elite" group of girls

    I have some really good friends that I consider to be family, they have literally been through hell, and they got so much good to give. People who have it rough tend to appreciate things a lot more. Not all of them are bad.

    Thank you for blessing us with your infinite wisdom. Any other 18-year-olds care to enlighten BHW with their ideologies?

    This rules are mostly for US kidos. You said you wrote it when you were high - dude get a life and stop doing things on "speed".
    I agree only with a few things - most of them look like were written on high.
    Anyway - you have long way to go and write this list again in 2-3 years. You will see changes.

    You sound too stuck up, number 1&20 make me think you've taken it in the bum and are trying to justify it.

    Agree with most other than 9,11,13
