We were in the car this afternoon, and the song Letter to Me by Brad Paisley came on. I got to thinking about what I wish I could tell my seventeen-year-old self. Here are seven of them:
1. Ice cream is poison.
2. Save for retirement!
3. Get a degree.
4. "I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel." --Audrey Hepburn
...but then again...
5. "...solitary pleasures erode your ties to the human race." --Nuala O'Faolin, Almost There
6. Always seeing merit in both sides of an argument can be a real pain sometimes.
7. Laugh. With friends, with family, by yourself, at yourself, as often as you can, until you cry.
