10 things I wish I could tell my younger self.

1. Stay away from the purple hair dye. It'll look great for about a week then turn your hair a weird ginger colour you'll have to wait 4 years to grow out.

2. While we're at it, you should also consider giving your eyebrows a trim and investing in a pencil - bushy-yet-sparse will never, ever catch on.

3. Your grades actually probably will come in quite handy in your line of work, so keep trying for that pesky A* and that 1st you'll eventually wrangle.

4. For God's sake stop being so antisocial, spending all day on Tumblr and hating other humans so much. You'll have to work to rebuild friendships with people you didn't stay in touch with later on...

5. Your judgement about what kind of person somebody is will unfailingly turn out right, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a chance. Jesus, woman.

6. The triple-decker cheese sarnie you eat at 10pm every night for the entirety of college WILL push you up a dress size and that tummy pooch will not look good. Don't do it.

7. You absolutely can beat your anxiety down with a stick and win at life. Maybe not every single day but definitely most of them. So put the Xbox controller down, get out of bed, get dressed and crack the fuck on.

8. Appreciate your parents more. They worry about you a lot and being an ungrateful dick about it m makes you seem like a prize wally.

9. Whatever you do, do not, I repeat DO NOT let any boy control how you feel about yourself.

10. Save like hell rather than spending all your money in Primark and McDonald's. pleeeeeeease?

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your younger self?



  1. I absolutely love these kinds of post, I'm definitely going to have to write one! I too should have saved and stayed away from the funky hair dye.. oh, the regret!
