Maybe it’s the lack of boundaries, the rebelliousness of the show or its general unapologetic nature, but whatever it is, we’re sold on Girls. Witty, narcissistic and irritatingly self-absorbed, Hannah, Jessa, Shosh and Marni give zero F's about most things, yet have strong opinions on just about everything…even (especially?) topics they’re not informed on. And while we should probably take a few of the lessons from Girls with a grain of salt, there sure were a few gems to come out over the six amazing seasons of this show.

So to celebrate the end of this damn fine series, here are 30 very important lessons Girls taught us about life.

  1. It’s OK to feel more like a dumpling than a woman
  2. Always wear a bikini under a wetsuit
  3. Don’t steal friends' boyfriends
  4. Everyone wants to go to Aruba
  5. Be done with judging and superiority—it's not cool
  6. Corduroy overalls, however, are very cool
  7. You should always want to play truth or dare

  13. We can’t all be perfect, everyone has their own path
  14. Exercise like you own the block
  15. Always wee after…you know

  17. There is nothing creepier than a fish
  18. You can earn money making paper mache houses
