Anna Kendrick, the epitome of the cool chick that everyone wants to be friends with, turns 29 today. And in her less than 30 years on earth, she has already taught us more about life than our parents ever could. (Just kidding, mom and dad. For the most part).

Not only is Anna an Oscar-nominated actress, a player of the cups, beautiful and funny, but she is also so, so wise. And the proof is in her Twitter feed. Here is everything we learned following @AnnaKendrick47:

1. Live in the moment.

2. But plan for the future.

3. Never underestimate the complexity of your fellow man.

4. Be aware of your personal strengths and weaknesses.

5. It's the little things in life that matter.

6. Entrepreneurship.

7. Everyone has a right to privacy.

8. Most people lie.

9. It's important to honor our past.

10. But believe that children are our future.

11. Science explains everything.

12. Science explains nothing.

13. You can be anything you want to be, all you need to do is dream.

14. Ass tattoos may not convey what you think they do.

15. No one needs to ever call anyone on the phone, ever.

16. And there is only one queen, and that queen is Queen Bey.

And thus concludes the Gospel According to Anna.

Go forth, children, and live in the way of the Kendrick.
