A Letter To My Younger Self

Dear High School Caley,

Lawd, child. You have got to calm down. You are acting a fool and one day that will catch up to you, I'm sure. Oh wait. It did. Sucks.

Although, I am proud of you for not caring what people think about you. That will be a wonderful trait that will come in handy in college. Most people don't possess that lack of caring until much later in life. Embrace it, girl.

College will be fun, and you'll find lots of people you love. And you'll continue to encounter people you don't. But embrace where you are. Take every chance you get to have fun, within reason. Don't be a bum. Nobody recalls with joy the nights they stayed home and got lots of sleep.

Also, stop saying you are fat. Because the large-and-in-charge version of you is yet to come. Rock that cheer uniform, bikini, and size 4 jeans. You won't ever fit into those again. 

You should also stop stressing about stupid boys. You aren't missing anything, and don't let anyone tell you any differently. That kid you are really digging right now? Yeah, well he's married now and you are still living the life. Don't let them fool you. You do you, chicka. 

Keep busting it and aiming higher in life, it's something you'll never regret. And it will also be the only reason you get into UGA. Surprise! 

Go Dawgs. Gators wear jean shorts. Never forget that.

xoxo, 22-year-old wise Caley

PS- why aren't you watching Gossip Girl. Do it now and save yourself some catching up in a few years.
