Joshua Blankenship Thought of It First

Now that I've avoided taking credit for the ingenious Notes to Self idea, I can actually start making some.


Note to self: Sit up straight. You do not have bad posture because you have scoliosis. Your scoliosis is in your lumbar spine, not your thoracic spine. Keep your shoulder blades down and back - you always feel better about yourself when you do.

Note to self: Stop coughing up blood. It's gross, and possibly a symptom of something bad.

Note to self: Quit going to shitty doctors because you're a broke college kid. Suck it up and ask your parents to pay for a decent doctor. They'll be happy when you don't get consumption.

Note to self: Don't worry about the things you cannot control.

Note to self: Understand which things you cannot control, and learn to accept them.

Note to self: Meditate more.

Note to self: Never stop your yearly reading of Catch-22. It always gives you something to look forward to, and you always get something out of it.

Note to self: Stop viewing love as a weakness. This is probably why you're 23 and dysfunctional, blogging your thoughts instead of actually telling them to someone.

Note to self: Never forget how you became the person you are. Humble beginnings make great people.

Note to self: Stop living in your sister's shadow. You're actually taller than she is.
