No. of Recommendations: 5
The following constitutes the sum total of advise and counsel that I have to pass on to a new generation.

1) The absolute, mathimaticly optimal dollar ammout to tip a stripper is $5. It'll distinguish you from all the others with sweaty $1 bills thereby earning you "prefered customer" status, while still leaving the all important bank-roll intact. Very high Returns on Investment. Any more is spent chasing diminishing returns.

2) No matter what anyone says, Communications is not a real college degree.

3) Time is money and vice versa. Don't waste either.

4) IRAs, 401Ks, and savings are nice. But they are no substitute for your dreams. Unflinchingly pursue them, regardless how untenable others see them. Most people will give you sound and reasonable advise about your future. But few great things are built on the sound or the reasonable. Your passion and refusal to accept the status quo are qualitiies you have in abundance, and will often make up for lack of other skills.

5) The Real World isn't.

6) Throw caution to the wind; carpe diem. You are invincible and will most likely live for ever.

7) Beer, liquor - never sicker.
Liquer, beer - never fear.

Or, something like that.

8) Remember, a solid command of the English language is, like, totally a major job skill and stuff and will totally get you, like, a bitchin' job like on TV.

9) Living off of your parents wealth and good name may get you far, like the White House, but not seeking your own way in the world will most often leave you empty and afraid.

10) Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy everything else.
