One of the many rules I try to live my life by is this one: never lend money that you cannot afford to lose. Do not consume the sushi found in grocery stores. And above all else, don’t educate yourself about the celebrities you admire; don’t look up their Wikipedia page, don’t keep up with the news about them, and by no means should you ever attempt to meet them.
