Because I stay in my lane, my run-ins with fashion scribe and social media maestro Mr. Corey Kindberg are all too infrequent, but one metric ton of fun. His quippy tweets will make your day (follow him: @CoreyKindberg) as will, of course, his Five Rules For Life. Here they are, in his words.
1. Enjoy Yourself.
You can be stressed out of over a job or you can love what you do. My mother fully expected me to go into finance. When I saw where she worked and the suits the guys were wearing, I quickly cut that shit out. I loved fashion and I loved being snarky. That’s what I’m doing now. I’m just dating finance on the side for the free dinners.
2. Cut Out Toxic People.
Apparently I’ve learned this lesson very early in my life. I’ve started cutting out toxic relationships because it was bringing me down. I want to surround myself with the very best people. Why? Because I deserve it. Everyone deserves to have a group of friends who supports him/her fully.
3. Have A Lot of Sex.
I’m a self-admitted slut. Seriously. I have a lot of sex. I love sex. I love to break a sweat in the bedroom and I’m not ashamed to admit it. There’s nothing wrong with having sex as much as you can. It’s fun and a great stress reliever.
4. Cherish Your Family.
For a while now, it’s been just my mother and me. She recently got sick and I immediately felt a wave of guilt over not spending more time with her. Now, I go see her every weekend I can and I make sure to not be the obnoxious bitchy gay she raised (well, most of the times).
5. Own Your Shit.
If you’re going to be a bitch, be the best bitch. If you’re going to be a sassy little queen, be the sassiest. I, nor anyone else has time for mediocrity. Live your life to the best of your abilities and make sure someone remembers what you brought to this world.
Thanks, Corey! Stay tuned for more 5 Rules For Life.
“Five Rules For Life” is a series on Rouge18 in which I ask others to share their five rules for life about anything and everything. You can learn a lot about a person by reading which five things govern their actions, no?
