30 Things: Day 4

on October 1, 2012

List 10 things you would tell your 16 year old self

1. Working two jobs won’t be worth it.

2. Listen to your dad and save your money.  Eating out, tanning and movies aren’t everything.

3.  Spend more time with your family.  You’ll be homesick in two years when you leave for college.

4. Watch all of your brothers’ sporting events.  They might not say it, but they appreciate the support.

5. Consider more than just Alaskan colleges; it’s a crazy world out there.

6.  Change isn’t horrible.  It allows you to experience new things.

7. Learn to say “No” as soon as possible.  You don’t need to stress yourself out because you are a “Yes Man”

8.  Don’t stop participating in sports.  You need them to stay fit.  The “Freshman 15” might be a “Freshman/College 50”

9.  Stop desiring to have children in the time frame your mother did.  You won’t be able to afford them or enjoy college as much as you can without them.

10.  Your boyfriends’ friends will always pick on you.  Come up with some smart ass responses to surprise them.
