Dear 16 year old self,

If you could, what would you go back in time and tell your 16 year old self? 

I would tell myself...

  • step out of the shadow of your beautiful best friend
  • you aren't the fastest swimmer but keep up with it in college, it will serve you well
  • you're not going to marry him but don't regret anything you do
  • get your ass in gear and work harder in school, you aren't as dumb as you think
  • don't drink
  • your hair will never ever ever be this naturally blonde again so love it
  • help around the house more without being asked, your mom works her ass off
  • in 4 years you'll meet the love of your life so just be patient
  • You spend 3 hours a day/330 days a year in the sun and in the pool.  Wear sunscreen, you idiot.
  • You are not nearly as fat as you think you are.
That 16 year girl was happy so I don't feel too badly but man, I wish I could tell her these things. 

How 'bout you? 

Here's that 16 year old girl I'd be talking to.  She's not stoned, I swear.

  1. Just do your chores without having to be asked and without complaining like a whiny bitch. You're almost a man for christsake, act like it!

    Stop wearing sweatpants everywhere!

    Turn off the tube and study. You might learn something. You might even like it!

    Yeah that book you wrote a couple years ago did suck, but keep trying.

    Sure, Snickers do satisfy. They also pack on the pounds, so keep an eye on that.

    Last and certainly not least...The mullet's gotta go.

  2. That guy is a dick so when he dumps you the first time and begs for you to come back say NO! He doesn't deserve the love you are giving him. Appreciate your parents and grandparents. Eat healthy, you eat too much crap and it doesn't matter that you are skinny now cuz it doesn't last for long. Try harder in math. Keep up your mad English Lit skills. They will serve you well one day. Keep an eye on that "friend" cuz he is gonna change your life in a year. Learn more about your portuguese culture. Mentor your sister whether she wants it or not :) Do the last year of Drill Team, you'll miss it.

  3. Great idea, Ashley! I'm snatching this, if that's ok :).

  4. 1. Get better friends and don't be as understanding as you usually are.

    2. Yes, people like you and you have friends.

    3. You're skinny.

    4. Don't let a couple of people make you feel bad about yourself.

    5. Yes, you've got brains. Don't beat yourself up too much.
