I've had my laptop, Max, for almost 8 years. In laptop years I think that makes Max a little over 100. He's old. He's slow. He's full of pictures and school papers and Word document journal entries and more pictures. And twice he's almost died but my brother-in-law has resuscitated him because he's an engineer and those guys are geniuses. It's been a solid 6 months since I've had my computer, so I started looking through all of the pictures that I'd forgotten about. And I sat there staring at these pictures and wishing I could go back and tell my college self this:
And I also wished I could tell my college self other things. Things like...
-It's ok that you didn't stay friends with that group of girls from freshman year. You made it out of college with some great friends, and the ones from freshman year aren't even friends with each other anymore.
-Don't dye your hair black. Fine, technically it's not actually black but it's SUPER dark brown and it makde you look weird.
-Be who you want to be, not who they want you to be.
-Take advantage of your meal plan because you're going to hate cooking when you're older.
-You're wearing single digit pants... stop calling yourself fat. Just stop it.
-That guy you're crying over during your freshman year? He sucks. Move on.
- Everybody is obsessed with Boba but it's ok that you're not. It looks like rabbit poop and after college nobody will mention it again. (You guys want proof?)
BOBA(the little balls):
(I apologize that this is gross. But I mean... resemblance)
-Get. A. Job. Just do it.
-STOP IT WITH THE DUCK LIPS.
What would you go back and tell your younger self?
