Strippers don't really love you. It's always all about the money.
All of this x100000!!! All of them are great points and great things to live/work by. I was going to pick one or two to highlight but they are all great points. Something that we should all read every morning.
Thanks for sharing!
Ask older people questions. Listen to their responses. You'll be amazed how smart some of those stupid old people are.

Live like no one else, bitches!
Dave Ramsey fan I assume.
I don't subscribe to nearly everything that Ramsey says, but I think those basic principles of his make sense and it fits in well with what the OP is asking about. If somebody gave that advice to a 22 year old, I think they could be well ahead of their peers years later.
I impart these words of wisdom that were told to me some years back... "Life isn't a trial run."
Always go with "C" if you don't know the answer.
I bought some batteries, but they weren't included... so I had to buy them again. What do batteries run on?
Couldn't disagree more. You'll always regret not chasing your passion, even if whatever you're chasing proves to be out of reach. You'll never have a better opportunity to go for it than right after you graduate.
Live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpse
In my case, I happen to agree with OP. I am in the financial world, and enjoy my job, but my true passion is music. I dj and produce music on the side, but I'm not kidding myself that this will provide for the same level of lifestyle my "career job" has afforded. I continue to work at the hobby, but understand where my bread is buttered.
If you can go after a niche passion and turn it into a career which pays well enough to support you and potentially your family in the manner you are okay with, by all means, go for it. Not many people can say this though.
Read "the energy bus".
As the poster above mentioned. It's your attitude that matters.
This country was built by people who worked hard then went home and had just a few too many every night. Then went back to work.
1. Be passionate about something
2. NEVER compromise your values
3. Don't marry who your parents THINK you should marry
4. Be accountable for you actions
5. Do something for others without expecting something in return
6. Love people UNCONDITIONALLY
7. Take chances No Guts No Glory
8. The world is your playground. Use it all.
9. Be spiritual. It will help you find what you are missing.
10. Good Luck. You're going to need some!

The moment is eternal
That clunker POS that made it through school? Keep driving it until the wheels absolutely fall off. If it's real old, change the oil every 3K, it's cheaper than getting another engine or vehicle.
Hell, if you're a Spartan grad you'll end up in Chicago, Cincinnati or DC anyways, so ditch the wheels and save your cash!
Live like no one else, bitches!
You're going to have moments that feel like great successes. You're also going to have moments that feel like miserable failures. The former may make you proud; the latter will truly hurt. But you'll make it through both of them.
Life is a journey. Keep your head held high, keep your options open, and keep moving forward.
Work hard, keep your mouth shut, and good things will happen to you.
No offense, but you sound pretty boring. Just make enough where $6 dollar coffees are irrelevant.
Suck at least one cock in your lifetime.

Stop getting married because you think society demands it. Be single and enjoy life.
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
Heh. My first thought was getting married was one of the best decisions of my life.
How old are you? IMO, your plan seems well-and-good till you hit 30+ years of age.
My sister is 39, never been married, and lemme tell yeh, she ain't enjoying life. Oh sure, she travels the globe, has a nice car, owns her own house, has a successful career - but SHE'S ALONE. And she's miserable because of it.
Me? I have a wife of 23 years, and 4 kids. We can't afford to do many of those things - like traveling, but we're a tight family. We look out for eachother. We have fun together.
From my experience, life is meant to be shared. But perhaps you can enjoy life in an empty apartment, (or do you have animals for surrogate companionship?)
True. Women over 35 and single are great in the sack. They are desperate and if they haven't bore a child yet will screw your brains out to persuade you to marry them. These women you bang and leave as they are neurotic for the most part.
