Letter to my 16 year old self
Dear My 16 year old self
Hi, It's me. I don't know whether you know you're pregnant yet. If you don't, get a test done. If it's before October then I'm afraid you're gonna have to hang around for a bit then as soon as you're up the duff get out of there. Follow your instincts. Don't stop thinking. And I know having a baby may seem like a scary prospect but you cannot risk not having this little man in your life.
Don't worry about what other people are thinking, especially people at church. C and L may be judging you now but they will both be pregnant too by the end of next year. Oh, look out for L. She's gonna go through some tough stuff. Don't hate her and tell her that when she's 28 it will all be OK. If you leave now like I'm telling you to then you will have less understanding of what she will go through.
Oh and stop being embarrased about your brother. He has Aspergers you insensitive dumbass. Look it up. Don't worry-you will make it up to him. Try and take him out with your friends some more though. It might help you behave too.
Learn to speak well so that at least you sound intelligent and get some GHD's. They are worth the investment. You will buy them in the end anyway so save yourself buying all the crap versions first.
Don't worry about your weight. You will pretty much stay the same for the next 15 years anyway.
Try to type properly-it will save you a lot of time in the long run.
Never let computer consoles into your house.
Good luck and enjoy being a Mum-its the most important job you will ever do.
Now start packing. Don't wait around for another 2 and a half years. Mum and Dad don't hate you and one day they will be proud.
Your 30 year old self
p.s In 2007 do not get a five year fixed rate-go for the tracker instead.
