25 Things You Should Know But Nobody Ever Told You

Most of the things you learned growing up probably came from textbooks. Right? Well…that’s actually wrong. It’s actually very wrong. Most of the words you know, most of your habits, and most of your experiences came from friends and family. Of course, you did learn a lot at school. But most of that knowledge came from interacting with friends. Although you surely learned some concrete facts and some useful ways of thinking, your knowledge is shaped to a vast degree by the people you interact with. This is not to say that you shouldn’t pay attention in school. Those hard facts will definitely help you with getting a job. But knowing which hand to hold the fork with, or knowing how to leave a good first impression, or using the bathroom, or dressing yourself, or tying your shoes, or any number of other things all come from your parents, caretakers, and other important people in your life. And oh yea…the internet! Which is where we come in. We are here to fill in any holes that you may have in your knowledge base. To do that we have compiled this list of 25 things you should know but nobody ever told you!
