Lila’s Advice

Advice Moose says hi

I like advice. Here’s my irregularly updated list of advice that I’ve given myself or gotten from someone or wished someone had given me.

1. Don’t get vinegar in your eyes.

This is not a metaphor.

2. Never wear shitty bras.

3. Sing.

4. Don’t be afraid to be awesome.

Common advice for creative people is some version of “Don’t be afraid to suck.” While this is excellent advice, because actually making your art is the first step to getting better at your art, I think this is just as important. Sometimes, among all the suck, you do something awesome. Recognize it. Tell people about it. There’s no shame in saying “I did this awesome thing!” and feeling proud of yourself. Acknowledge your achievements.

5. Dance.

6. Actually trust the people you trust.

Some of us go through life expecting betrayal at every turn, and so we don’t share our feelings and personal thoughts very readily. I’m not going to say that this is bad, stop right now. There’s nothing wrong with being a private person. But when you find someone that you can trust, be open and honest with them. When they still love you after you’ve shared something important and maybe embarrassing or painful or mean, you’ll start to learn that letting someone be there for you is worth it.

7. Pizza is totally a well-balanced meal.

8. These Amanda Palmer lyrics.

nothing’s ever lost forever
it’s just caught inside the cushions of your couch and when you find it
you’ll have such a nice surprise

nothing’s ever lost forever
it’s just hiding in the recess of your mind and when you need it
it will come to you at night

no one’s ever lost forever
when they die they go away
but they will visit you occasionally do not be afraid

no one’s ever lost forever
they are caught inside your heart
if you garden them and water them they make you what you are

9. Those laundry sorting rules: more like guidelines.

More to come!

  2. It is not at all true that you can’t use the Viagra blue pill when you find yourself in your late 20s or early 30s.
    But as with every other prescription medicine,
    it’s best to all the time seek the advice of
    a doctor before using this erection-inducing medicine, irrespective
    of how young or old you might be. It’s true that there are various
    medical doctors giving out the consultation by means of web in one of the best appropriate manner and considering these facts you will
    be able to carry on with the tasks in the best way whereby you’ll be capable of get
    hold of the required prescription with none concerns. It’s
    best to get hold of the most effective website and contemplating these factors there are a lot of reputed online docs who
    are ready to offer out one of the best medical advice pertaining to
    the health condition. An online doctor will definitely evaluate your
    situation and based on the scenario they will definitely
    get in touch with you at the earliest with a prescription and medical
    recommendation if you’ll be able to proceed
    with the online treatment. Also you’ll be able to
    get the medicines and therapies at low price by making use
    of the ecommerce venture and there are many people getting attracted in direction of these amenities primarily as
    a result of expense charges associated with them.

  3. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the web will be much more useful
    than ever before.
