The future is great. There are flying cars everywhere and we live side by side with aliens. Just thought I'd give some advice to you from all my experiences these last few years.
You'll soon go through a make up phase where you'll go mental. Do not cake it on: it is not a pretty sight. I know right now you're scared of make up, but I promise, with a little practice, you'll become an expert. Stay away from cheap brands...Rimmel is the eyeliner you'll learn to love.
And do something about your hair. Embrace those curls! Straight hair is great and all, but your curls aren't actaully that bad, so learn to love them! And you can have so much more fun with your curls.
As for style, let me tell you that you'll hate the pictures you're taking right now. No one's asking you to be glammed up all the time, but a little effort never hurt anybody.
And avoid those muffin tops you're trying to pull off now. You will lose some weight eventually, but no one wants to see your flab now. However, don't wait for those boobs to appear, they never will. You might as well realise it sooner rather than later.
Don't be afraid to play around with your style a bit. Jeans and tees may be practical, but also try some new stuff. Dresses and skirts look really good, and you have the legs for them.
Also, be more confident: that confidence will definitely show. Wear nice clothes and feel good about yourself. Only when you love yourself can others love you.
And please learn to stick up for youself. You really don't deserve some of the crap coming your way, causing you hours and hours of tears. These people aren't worth the effort.
And that boy you're thinking about right now...yes him: STOP. He's kind of like Gollum. Although he'll provide a huge amount of entertainment for you, he's also an idiot. You'll realise that when you talk to him. He'll be a good friend in the future, so please don't try for anything more (although, his younger brother gets very good looking and is much nicer).
He really will do entertaining things so its good that nothing really ever happened.
As to our your current bff, stop trying so hard with that friendship. Sometimes, life just pushes two people in completely different directions, and there is nothing really you can do. Accept that you two have grown apart and don't try to force a friendship.
These things happen for a reason: life makes funny turns that we just don't understand sometimes. Sometimes all you need are some great friends and a good time to put everything in perspective. And if all else fails: shopping always makes you happy. So, just live the life you have and don't dwell on the negatives.
Also, don't try too hard to be cool. You might envy them, but these 'cool girls' don't have the best life right now. You eventually get your degree and grow up, but these girls drop out, become teen mums and just stay the same for years to come.
So, don't follow everyone at school. Go for a bit of independence and become your own person.
Life will tear you up at times, but be strong and keep your chin up. Things have a way of turning out for the best. You life will have its ups and downs and the lows will make you appreciate the highs so much more. I know your're confused about the future, but everyone is feeling the same way as you. Seriously, you're not alone.You'll make good and bad choices, but trust yourself. You have a priveleged life, so enjoy it and have fun.
P.S. Invest in a small group call Facebook. You won't get it now, but it'll be worth your while.
P.P.S. What advice would you give your past self?
