|Yours truly at 15 (i'm the split one)|
So I scanned back over prompts for NaBloWriMo and thought HEY! That one's EASY! Never mind that it was for Tuesday... So here we are...
What Advice would you give your 15-year old self?
(funny, I still have those leg warmers... funnier... I still wear them...)
On Boys: Don't be in such a darned hurry to have a boyfriend. Having a boyfriend for the sake of it forces you to give up something of yourself. You really don't want one until you meet someone who likes the authentic you.
On Friends: This is a small town. These people are GREAT people, but everybody can be lousy at 15 and 16... Don't take it to heart. (honestly, I did pretty good on this front—I had varied friends and if one set was bitchy, I just hung out with different people for a while. It could seem painful at the time, but I still think it was the way to go)
On School: Meh... I think I did okay on this one...
On Parties: Boys are NOT the be-all and end-all. Neither is beer. Hang with your girlfriends more. They are the part of this time you will savor later (and are least likely to regret).
|Only 14 here, actually (braces give it away)|
I have no clue what I was doing there (the picture)... I've always had a silly streak. Both these pictures were from year book stuff and I thank my friend Mary for sharing them (she was often the yearbook photographer and put tons of many people up on facebook--far easier than scanning stuff myself)
