Hey all I'm linking up with Holly and Jake....
A Letter To My 21 Year Old Self
Since I'll be turning 34 yikes next week. Yep next week. This is a long time ago! A time of pre-children, and a rockn bod. LOL
Dear Nicole (21),
On your 21st birthday try not to be to disappointed by the lack of effort by your boyfriend and friends. They are all self-absorbed and are worried about where they want to go and aren't going to listen to you. You will be home by 11pm even though you didn't go out till 10 because your "friends" are tired and your boyfriend wants to go out and drink with his friends. Don't worry he won't be around to much longer after this. And there will be many other times when you can go out and drink yourself silly.....oh and you will!
Try not to take yourself so seriously. You can be young and dumb because now's the time to make mistakes. You can drink yourself silly and puke your brains out, dance your ass off, sleep all day and then go and do it again.
Please please switch stylist. She will highlight your hair too blonde for you and you will look crazy. Oh and don't let her give you a perm while she's worried about her orange hair. That should be your first warning.....her orange hair. Please please get a darker shade of foundation. You are not white, you have an olive complexion and the too white pasty stuff you use will make you cringe every time you look back at pictures.
Enjoy your figure right now. You have a flat stomach and you are in shape. You will have 3 kids in the future and each one will wreck havoic on it. Be grateful for it now because it will take a lot of hard work and maybe surgery to get back to that shape again.
You are a hard worker. You'll be working a full-time job as Admin Assistant. and a part-time job as a Swim and Preschool Teacher. Be a sponge and learn everything. You will take everything you learn and be a self-employed business woman one-day. Your part-time job will teach you to have patience with children, but you also show their parents that it's ok for them to act crazy with their kids. Those kids will remember you years later. They will tell you that your classes were the most fun, and those parents will be forever grateful that you were able to teach their little ones to come out of their shells.
Last but certainly not least remember that you are a loving, trusting, person. You wear your heart on your sleeve but that is what people love about you. You go the extra mile for others. Be you and don't try to change it!
