If I could meet myself as a 13 year old...

Sometimes I think about if I could go back and meet myself as a 13 year old. What would I tell myself? This is the following list I've come up with:

1) You're going to get pregnant at 17, and married at 18. This is absolutely the right thing to do. Don't even give it a second thought. You'll be scared, but don't. Everything will be okay. Promise.

2) Don't give up...don't leave...don't walk away, things will get better. Don't be ashamed to ask for help.

3) On the night when Mom calls you to tell you she's going in for that "routine mammogram" - TELL HER WHAT YOU KNOW!  She'll believe you.

4) Ugh - DON'T date him. He's not worth your time down the line, there's more drama there than you can possibly imagine. And don't date or let yourself become attracted to either of them...they're gay. But they're AMAZING friends who you will love dearly.

5) Don't listen to the haters. In 25 years time Duran will STILL be around. You'll be going with Rach 2nd row centre in Toronto - it will be worth the wait.

6) Forgive her - your friendship is worth more than you can imagine.

7) Don't toss out the pussy sweater. It will STILL be the topic of conversation in 25 years time.

8) You WILL learn to play the bass.

9) Don't do it...Just. Don't.

10) You're not going to marry John Taylor. I know, it was a shock to me too. But the man you DO amazing.

11) Trust your instincts - you're more switched on than you think.

12) Don't forget to believe in yourself.

13) You're your own worst enemy sometimes.

14) The grass is NOT greener on the other side of that fence so stop thinking that it is. IT. IS. NOT.

15) Be more supportive and understanding of the three of them. You're all going through the same things.

16) Stop being so damn angry. What are you so mad at anyway?

17) Not having Treetorns, a Beneton shirt, or a pair of Kettle Creek pants is NOT the end of the world. Get over it.

18) Don't EVER wear that again.

19) Not even worth your time.

20) She will end up being one of the most pivotal, important people in your life later on. And SHE will end up being a backstabbing bitch. Run while you still can.

OH! And perhaps the most IMPORTANT one of ALL!!!


One Last Glimpse,



  1. I have questions... who should you forgive, who is a backstabbing bitch and who are the three you should be more supportive of? LOL@ McCutcheon's pic PRICELESS

  2. You, LAK, and The three of you there on Friday.

  3. You're a dick. You were always supportive. Are you kidding me??? Oy vey lady LOL

  4. Meh -- I think I was as we got older (Grade 11) but not so much before that.
