Here's something interesting I found at Ginger & Cardamom. 10 notes to my 15 year old self. Well, the original post says " 10 notes to yourself 10 years ago", but i'm going to cheat a bit, and include an extra year(ps.. extra year, extra note). Comes from just having had a birthday, i guess :) so here it is,

11 Things I Wish Someone had Told Me 11 Years Ago (in no particular order)

1. EVERYONE is as terrified of growing up as you are. Some just fake their way through easier than others. but it has to be done. so deal with it.

1. Shit Happens. Changing schools won't really help much, but punching morons (who think it's funny to fill your bicycle basket with squishy dead things) might.

1. Explore the city you live in. No matter how much you hate it now, you're going to miss it like crazy later.

1. Never date
someone on a dare, especially if the point is just to prove you aren't gay. But remember some relationships are meant to go bad. Just make sure you learn something from it.

1. You are never going to be as thin as you are now. Enjoy it.

1. Listen.

1. Don't beat yourself up for not really knowing what you want from life at this point. 10 years later, you still don't.

1. S
tay away from "medicinal herbs". Unless you really think climbing to the roof of a 10-storey building, and then remembering u have batophobia on the way down, is really what you want to do in life.

1. Write. Sing. Play. Live. As much as you can. Even if no one's watching.

1. Don't worry if no one else thinks you're cool. I do.

1. Don't make a promise you don't intend to keep, but always give yourself a little bit of maneuvering space, just in case.
