thirty things in august. four.

List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.

1. The majority of people in Oklahoma are super-conservative, even if they appear to be normal to you. Broaden your horizons.
2. All this working-your-butt-off you're doing is worth it in the long run. I promise.
3. You are building friendships right now that will last your entire life. And that's pretty awesome!
4. Pink is a pretty color on you. Decide to wear it already!
5. Please don't sell yourself short. You've a tendency to do that.
6. Remember that the gas gauge in the impala doesn't work. This will save you a very embarrassing moment in the future!
7. Create more. Art, photos, whatever. Embrace this side of yourself.
8. It is not worth the time or emotional drain of getting caught up in the high school crazy. Try your best to just ride the wave instead of get caught in the undertow.
9. Contrary to popular believe, these are not the "best days of your life." Enjoy them, for sure, but know it gets even better.
10. When you get your sewing machine and learn how to make a pillowcase with french seams, don't stop there. Have your mom teach you more!
