  • No, you won't have a lot of need for algebra, but try your hardest anyway, because it will save a lot of time through the rest of your stay in high school. Oh, and start taking care of your body now, because when you are 24 and looking at your post-baby body, you will realize just how good you look now!

  • I would tell my 16 year old self that I am beautiful inside and out no matter what anyone tells me, and drinking isnt the way to solve my problems just because my parents went down that destructive path.

  • I would like to say, "it doesn't matter what other people say or do. At the end of the day, you have to be happy with yourself, and the things you've said and done. Try to be compassionate and courteous of other people without letting yourself become a doormat. I know that that's a fine line, but your heart will tell you what the answer is...."

  • Stop stressing so much over school. You know you're smart. After college no one is going to care if you got straight A's in HS.

    Date more. It's not as scary as you think.

    Laugh more. Life is so much shorter than it seems.

    Get that driver's license, even if you don't drive. It'll save you money in the long run on your insurance.

    Go to college! You'll regret it later if you don't! It's 10x harder to "go back" than to just go!
