and now onto part 3 and the final installment of sisterly advice.

always sit at the bar

If you are dining with 2 people or less you should always follow this rule. You would also have to make sure to put your phone away. You will meet the most amazing people and probably even have one of the best nights of your life.


when in doubt, dance it out

That’s what Christina Yang would do and Shondra Rhymes is a genius so I'm rolling with it.


enjoy this time because it is fleeting

I hated getting this advice too but boy is it ever true.  The best times of your life go way to fast so every now and then take a deep breath to make sure you are in the moment and enjoying every single second.  One day you will look back on this time and tell the stories to your kids on repeat not remembering that you have already told them a million times.  This will annoy your children to no end and remind you of when your parents did it to you.  When this happens you will smile and maybe chuckle a bit.


never accept a drink from a stranger

Joe is no stranger but he still let's me take matters into my own hands every once in awhile

Unless the following criteria is met:

  • He is Hot

  • He is Wealthy – we’re talking private jet wealthy not fancy dinner wealthy

  • He’s Ryan Gosling – When in doubt accept anything Ryan Gosling offers you

  • You’re broke and can’t afford a drink on your own

  • You are really really thirsty

In the case of any of the above go ahead, accept the drink just make sure to ALWAYS watch it being made by the bartender

**SIDENOTE:  If it is Ryan Gosling buying you the drink, I bet you will be happy you followed my underpants advice. I'm just saying.


if you have to karaoke, DO IT, but never sing

Look, unless you are like legit and people other than your relatives and friends have told you that, singing is a bad idea. Nobody really listens anyway. AND, when people are nervous at karaoke they always sing slow depressing songs. WTH? you are supposed to be out having fun, getting the crowd involved, showing them what you got. SO...I advice rapping. Choose a song completely opposite of who you are and let it rip. People will dance, they will cheer you on and it won't matter what you sound like.

So there you have it 15, pieces of advice that I have tried to instill in my younger siblings and now to you.Since you stayed till the end I decided to give you a little bonus piece of advice.

be nice to your big sister. 

She is the best friend you will ever have and would lay down her life for you. She watched even when you got the mexican pizza and she didn't and yet she still helped you put the hot sauce on it. She throws you slumber parties when you are a pre-teen and takes you out for a drink on your 21st. She will give you the best gifts, make you laugh by doing ridiculous things and she will do whatever you need, whenever you need it. YES, she is probably a little bossy, and sometimes too over-protective but it is all out of her love for you. So give her a break and maybe a hug every once in awhile.
