General and unsolicited advice:

• A gym membership is not a magical, talismanic card that makes you healthier simply because you carry it around in your wallet. Trust me on this one.

• Easiest possible way to increase your classiness coefficient: Start calling tartar sauce "rémoulade." You're not having fish fingers and tartar sauce, you're having "breaded haddock with rémoulade." And Franzia.

• Every presentation, no matter the setting, can be enhanced via strategic use of a fog machine.

• Never ever, ever, ever, even when you want to, even when you think you cannot possibly continue, ever, ever, ever give up on your dreams. Unless they're stupid.

• "Because I thought it would be funny" is rarely an admissible defense in a court of law.

• Sometimes, you just need to be an adult, be honest with yourself, and admit that, sure, you could really go for some Cheetos right about now.

• Never self-diagnose yourself with WebMD. You will have cancer. You will always have cancer.

• If you ever walk into a Famous Footwear, Payless Shoe Source, or similar cobbler-type shop, and the salesperson asks you if there's anything s/he can help you find, simply reply: "Do you have any shoes?" It's worth getting kicked out over.
