Notes to my 17 year old self

First off you are not fat. You may not be the same size nothing as everyone else, but it’s really not that bad. You my dear are curvy and that will never change no matter how little you eat.

Second that guy you like, ask him out, because he is freaking shy, and if you wait it will hurt you later. Deal with it now while you are young.

Figure out what you want to be when you grow up. Movie star and singer are a little less than realistic. Find at least one thing you enjoy doing that is realistic. Even if you don’t have to go to some big huge school to accomplish it. Working hard is an honorable profession. You won’t have all the things you want, but you will have all that you need.

If you see someone who can drink all night long and still look normal – RUN in the other direction. They are NOT for you.

BUT if you do meet them and you like them and you live with them and eventually have kids with them…DON’T REPEAT the pattern and keep going back after you say you are finished. IT’s like a bad record. No one likes to hear a bad record.

Don’t have kids until you are prepared to live in one place for the next 20 years. If you feel the gypsy within after you have kids, slap the b—h and tell her not now.

Remember the golden rule – Do unto other’s as you would have them do unto you.

Think globally, buy locally.

Get a tattoo.

Eat dinner alone in a restaurant.

Read more Jane Austen.
