1. Life is short
Lesson: Live it up! Life is short. Tomorrow is likely, but it sure as hell isn’t inevitable. It’s not promised. So make it count, men! Do you really want your last day on Earth to consist of watching Netflix and eating Mallomars?
2. Take risks
Lesson: If you’re not planning to start shoplifting and experimenting with drugs once you’re in your ’70s, you’re crazy. At that point, get weird with it.
3. Make some epic memories
Lesson: Let yourself be truly debaucherous every now and again. Make some epic memories. Sometimes, just sometimes, you’re at your best when you’re at your worst.
4. Toughen up
Lesson: After New Year’s Eve, once the holiday season is all wrapped up, winter starts sucking. No parties. Far less vacation days. Just biting, testicle-shriveling cold. But don’t worry. Wait it out. You’ll be complaining about the heat in no time.
