Stop cutting your hair. Also, it’s wavy, just get some mousse.

Things with the word “sexy “sex kitten,” etc. are not cute.

Don’t date that second boy you meet through a future friend (but take the job she tells you about–that’s how you meet FI).

Get your license at 16.

Be the opposite of your mother.

Spend more time with your grandparents.

Go to college earlier–major in IT.

I probably would convince myself to not have been so Goth. I know that it was a part of me and all but it made me not open to other people that werent like me, making me not have as many friends as others who are 15 have.

It’s not the end of the world if you and your bf break up, He’s the one you have a beautiful baby girl with and the one you marry.

Even if your Mother-In-Law is satan, killer with kindness and let Darling Husband handle it, don’t loose your cool bc then that monster wins!

Watch your weight now bc if you don’t you’ll end up over 200lb and find it harder to loose weight when youre 80lbs over your goal weight instead of 20-30lbs.

Because every experience I’ve ever had has brought me to where I am today, I would only change one thing, and advise myself of one thing:

Stay active, stay healthy.

I’ve gained about 50lbs since then and it’s a lot harder to take off than it was to just be active and keep myself from gaining it.

Smile a little more… Kids at school think you’re stuck up. 

skip that year and a half at one community college and just go to beauty school already…you’d have way more money right now. 

Just because you don’t have a boyfriend doesn’t make you ugly.

Stop spending your free money on frivolous shit because you’ll need it to pay for college!

I used to get $200 every couple of weeks, or was it a month? IDK – either way… and it was on a Prepaid credit card, to teach me financial responsibility. Sure, it taught me to budget, but not to save. And had I known then what I do now, then maybe I would’ve hopefully saved that money for my college that I’m now paying for out of pocket!! Blah;laksjfoiew!

@MrsPuddingface:  +1000. I am with you on this. I made a lot of mistakes when I was 15 but those mistakes make me into who I am, and I like who I am now (even though I didn’t at 15!). The only thing I would actively change is my lack of enthusiasm for exercise. I now have an adult metabolism and a squishy middle that I really lacked at 15.

I would tell myself to NEVER let ANYone convice you to apologize for something that you said/did that they thought was wrong, because it isn’t true. Do not compromise yourself to fit with people who are just trying to make you feel bad. 

I would also tell myself to go with my gut feeling of being an artist/creative person, instead of thinking that I need to go to school to be a doctor because they are “successful”. 

Also that being patient with boys will pay off, because you’ll meet a really great person in college and you will just “know” that he is the right one!

That boy that you like so much? He is abusing you, leave him… now. He isn’t worth the dirt you walk on.

Don’t let that boy from Pittsburgh convince you to move to New York 1/2 way through college. That is a huge waste of money.

Major in Criminal Justice from the get go. Don’t waste time with other majors.

Join DeafPals when it’s created. Your future husband is waiting for you there even though he is a country away and 5 years older. I promise, the wait and heartbreak from the LDR is worth it all.

Leave public school sooner, you’ll adore cyber school.

Watch your damn weight!

I would tell my 15 year old self not to date the douchebag she is going to end up dating two years later.
