Boomers: will they ever STFU

Not having in-person graduation is NOT the end of the world. You won't even remember most of it 20 years from now.

I can all too easily imagine my evil racist step mother passing on her particular nuggets of "wisdom."

... and I deleted all the examples I've heard from her...  You're welcome.

I will "only" be 60 this year, but this is what I would tell graduating seniors:

Lend only as much money as you can afford to lose.  If you lend someone money once and they never pay it back, never lend them money again.

Never sign a lease with a bunch of friends.  It will not end well.

Never co-sign for anyone.  If they need a co-signer, they cannot afford what they are buying.

Never, ever date someone at work.

On a more positive note:

No one on their deathbed says "I wish I had worked more"...take time to smell the daisies.

If you find yourself going a whole month without ever laughing, you should drop everything and reinvent yourself.

If you are lonely, adopt a pet, it might save your life.

Get out into nature as much as possible.  It is good for the soul.

If you are bored, learn something new; paint, knit, learn a language, do something you've never done before.

All I could really tell younger people is this: "I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry"
