10 Things I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago {Linky Party}

Senior Prom 2002

So I forgot how I came up with this idea but I thought I would share with you 10 things that I wish my 18 year old self {yup, I'm almost 30...and I still look 13, whoot} which was exactly 10 years ago...ack, crazy.
I am debating on whether I will make this into a regular series, like "10 things I Wish I Knew Before The Wedding" or "10 Things I Hate About You". Kidding. I only hate 6 things about you. Fine, 8, but that is enough, pinky swear.

The thing is, idk if 10 things are enough!! Seriously, don't you ever wish you can turn back the clock when you were 18, slap yourself out of your boy crazed coma, dress yourself in some better duds and fast forward all the drama? Just me? Okay...

Feel free to copy and paste this on your blog, with your own "things" and come back here, linking up in the comments. Actually, yeah, let's do that! Write a post of 10 things you wish you knew 10 years ago, and come back to share...'cuz I'd realllyyyy love to read about how you wish you knew all the moves to Thriller {totally know them fyi}.
Blah enough is my list, yo...

10 Things I Wish I Knew 10 Years Ago
(in no special order)

1. That butterflies in my belly when my crush walked by does not mean he is the one. It means lay off the cheetos before study hall...and get a clue, you're wasting your time.

2. That you are never too old to have a lemonade stand at the end of your driveway. Fact.

3. Your dreams don't rely on anyone gotta set your mind and be unmoveable!

4. Save your purity for your husband. It will save you so much pain and heartbreak. For your husband as well.

5. Be nicer to your younger sister. She will get taller.

6. God still loves you even if you don't.

7. Your drawings are too dark and gloomy. Lighten up, you are alive, stop obsessing over scary stories, ghosts, and dead things. For real.

8. Stay in college. You can make bank.

9. Forgive early, have peace early. Pray harder, live easier.

10. Start cooking, woman. You should know by now how to make more than a tuna sandwich with Doritos and name initial pancakes.

Now go write your 10 things and come back to link up!!!


  1. Great post! I did a Tuesday10 linkup with this theme last week... or was it the week before!?
