Closed-toe shoes were invented so people didn't have to smell feet anymore. Don't be parading yours around.

9. Always. Bring. A. Coat.

You will get cold at some point while you're away from your home. She has never been wrong about this.

10. Stand up straight.

Posture is important. You will look taller, more confident, and more handsome.

11. Don't marry the first person you date.

Remember how you and your high school sweetheart were "made for each other?" Yeahhhh... maybe not so much.

12. And finally: If you're feeling cranky, you probably aren't getting enough sleep.

You should take a nap.

Eat something that would make your momma proud.
