Things To Tell My Ten Year Old Self

Inspired by Emmy Lou over at Tales of an All-American Girl, here are ten things I would tell my ten-year old self:

1. Don't worry that you don't have a Juicy Couture jacket. They will go out of style in two years.

2. Don't try to shop at Abercrombie & Fitch. You will find nothing you like there anyway. Try Lilly Pulitzer and J. Crew.

3. Enjoy your field trips while you can, for one day your idea of a field trip will be walking to the library.
4. Spend more time with your grandparents and tell them that you love them; they won't be around forever.

5. Don't pay attention in Spanish class, you won't need ever need it. Instead, focus on more important things, such as enjoying recess.

6. You're not going to like that boy in middle school, so don't waste your time. He will turn ugly, while you will blossom into a graceful swan. Maybe. Don't quote me on that.

7. Try to make friends in your class and don't worry that your now 'BFF' is in another class. You'll hate her in a year anyway. Just sayin'

8. Next year you will have your first Cotillion. Prepare accordingly. Also, don't fret if no boys will dance with you. They will see the error of their ways soon.

9. Go to all of your brother's football games, even though you think they're boring, because one day he will graduate and there will be no more football games. Same goes for riding to school with him in the morning; although you think that they will never stop, they shall too one day.

10. Start riding horses again, because one day, homework and sports will dominate your life and you won't have time to.

PS Grow your hair out again. You look ugly. And I mean that in the most loving way possible.

What would you tell your ten year old self?

  1. Haha, these are great. So true on #2, 3, 4, 6, and 10.. and the PS made me laugh, because I have definitely said similar things.
    I may have to do this!

  2. #6 made me laugh out loud. we must have great humor somewhere in our genes. and you wanted a juicy couture jacket? like a hoodie? maybe you should tell yourself to send me my juicy sweatpants you are hoarding.
