I recently saw this on Jax's blog and I thought it would be fun I think several of you have already done this, but better late than never, right?
I was 16 in 1998 and I thought I knew it all. But, I was so wrong. So, this is what I'd say to my 16 year old self...
.*Keep running and exercising like you do. All of the pizza and Taco Bell in the years to come will catch up to you.
*Every guy you date will NOT be Mr. Right. But you WILL find him and he will be more than you ever dreamed.
*Don't let other people drive your car or wear you clothes. They won't always come back in one piece.
*Study harder and try more advanced classes. You're smart.
*Cherish every moment with your family. They won't always be around.
*Learn to cook from your grandmother. If you don't, you'll never know how to make the things you love.
*Don't waste high school wishing you were in college. Try to make the best of it.
*Pay more attention in Spanish. It'll be a great tool to have down the road.
*Life doesn't always end up the way you thought it would at a certain age, but that's ok. Just learn to make the best of it.
*Don't cut your hair. The bob and flip are not cute on you. You'll regret not growing your hair out sooner.
*Your parents are some of the smartest and best people you will ever meet. Listen to them.
*Travel while you can (and while your parents are still willing to pay for it)!
*Don't try and be Britney Spears. She winds up trashy, divorced with 2 kids and still a little slutty. But, you will always love her!
What would you say to your 16 year old self?
