I recently read an article directed at new college graduates but found it applicable to Mountain View High School graduates.  Although I disagree with the author that these rules may come as a shock to your system, I do believe these are important rules you learned along the way as you navigated through life.  Either way, these are great tips to take with you on your continued journey.
