21 People On What They Would Tell Their 19-Year-Old Selves
Jonathan, 55:There is no such thing as “the only one”. You will meet lots of “the ones”. Only commit when the timing is right for the both of you – that can take years for some, and that’s okay.
Miranda, 24:Drop pre-med.
Isaac, 48:Deodorant does not count as a shower, and that haircut only looked good on Bon Jovi.
Anya, 42:Make the conscious decision to be happy, and then stick with it. Society will do everything in its power to convince you that your personal happiness is dependent on something external – beauty, success, wealth, etc. – it isn’t.
Parker, 55:60% of the things you think are important now won’t matter a whit to you by the time you reach 50. The trick is to figure out the important 40% and work it.
Megan, 34:He doesn’t love you, and you will be okay.
Peter, 58:Don’t let anything stand in your way of taking part (or all) of your junior year abroad. You’ll never again have quite the same opportunity to experience a foreign land, for an extended period of time, in your youth. It is destined to be one of the most memorable aspects of your life.
Eleanor, 67:Talk less. Listen more.
Donald, 27:There’s a huge difference between who you want to be and who everyone around you wants you to be. Figure out which is which.
Camille, 56:Always remember: when falling off a horse, pull your tongue in.
Jackson, 57:No one knows anything for sure. They’re all just doing the best they can with what they have, just like you.
Vicki, 47:You’ll never have all the answers, so make every question count.
Donald, 38:You don’t have to grow up to be the dad you never had.
Katelyn, 30:Make the most out of college. You will never again be at a place where your only goal is to learn. Learn a lot, learn often, and learn with reckless abandon.
Joshua, 55:Women love to laugh.
Annabelle, 38:Drugs are not beautiful, glamorous or opulent. They are not a remedy, a solution, a cure-all, or a cure-anything.
Colin, 50:You miss so much life when you sleep until 3 PM. Wake up to see sunrises; they are the most stunning of nature’s masterpieces.
Eleanor, 26:Eating two pints of ice cream won’t make you happy. Neither will sprinting 10 miles. Be nice to yourself.
Aaron, 52:Don’t forget to ask that girl in the Oberlin library what kind of perfume she’s wearing. You’ll buy it for her in 20 years.
Scarlett, 54:Don’t be afraid to be yourself. Those that get you will love you, those that don’t, well, their loss. Just remember: Wherever you are, it’s a party.
Zack, 9:I hope you’re awesome. And be nice to girls.
Before taking this on, I was pretty split about my decision for next year but was leaning more towards leaving the team. I just knew that I wanted to grow in whatever I chose. Even though I was flattered that people could even think of me being co-director, the mere idea of the commitment and responsibilities and potential failure stressed me out like no other, especially since I’ve never been a leader before.
But right now, organizing these extra performances is so fun, mostly because it’s with the right people. I love our dynamic and the way we work together to incorporate everyone’s opinions. I mostly supervised today but watching the video over and over again makes me super happy with what we have so far and excited to be teaching / reviewing / casting / blocking people on Friday. Mini-modern’s mini-set is already coming together and I couldn’t be more eager to finish it and show people the end product.
I still don’t know what I’ll be doing next year. I don’t even know if I’ll get the position, and don’t know whether or not I’ll accept if I do. But whatever happens I’m grateful for this experience because it has been as rewarding as they said it would be.

“Every mouth you’ve ever kissed was just practice. All the bodies you’ve ever undressed and ploughed in to were preparing you for me. I don’t mind tasting them in the memory of your mouth.
Was it a long journey? Did it take you long to find me?
You’re here now, welcome home.”—Warsan Shire (via sweetghoul)
I don’t expect anyone to understand what I’m going through but at the same time all I want is someone to relate to. I’m tired of hearing objective pieces of advice that mean nothing to me I just need somebody who will understand the magnitude of the desperation I feel.
Rest in peace to my kitty Piko. I’m glad I got to pet you one last time before you passed away. I can’t believe I picked you out of the adoption center in 2008 because it seems like such a long time ago. You have seen more transformations in me than most humans have and for that I’m really thankful to have had you the times where I locked myself in a room to cry but somehow you’d be in there and emerge from underneath the bed to nuzzle me. You actually have taught me a lot about myself just because pets usually resemble their owner’s personality: an explorer, a fighter, a picky eater, and more. I will miss coming back to you every 3 months and still having you recognize me, or the way you’d jingle when I called your name, and the funny ways you sleep and how soft you were. I’ll always be proud to be a cat lady. Thanks for everything and I hope cat heaven offers you loads of food and toys.
O god all my friends are doing homework or research or projects over break w h y ? LOL meanwhile I didn’t even bring my laptop because I wanted to relax that hard haha.
I think I’m leaving home tmo. The funny thing is I don’t want to go to LA just yet but I also don’t want to stay here. Seriously hoping Heather will just decide to YOLO it so we can play in SD lmaooo.
I’ve been thinking and I’m lucky to have lived in 2 of the best cities. But that’s what makes me want to move to New York after college and live there for a year or two. I’m curious to see how my surroundings would change who I am, because LA has already done that to me. Even though I can’t handle the stress of it very well and NY is even more fast-paced, I think the experience and the people will altogether be something different. But I guess my realistic dream would just be to find a job and follow that instead. It still makes me happy when people say they see me there though :)
Guessing where everyone’s going to be later on is fun, but growing up puts a strain on old friendships because the geographical distance between all of us just keeps widening. I still hope that we will make time for each other and have these giant catch up sessions even when we’re older. Yeah. The end.
Sometimes I hate my life, and other times I love it. Sometimes I feel intense bursts of loneliness, and then I forget about it and wonder why it was such a big deal in the first place. Sometimes I wish I didn’t get sick of people as easily as I do, because my ability to keep in touch with people makes it easy to push them away too. Sometimes I feel like I am getting closer to maturity and other times I feel like I still have so much to learn that I’ll never be able to find myself, which makes it impossible for me to find someone who will love me for who I am. Sometimes I’m proud of who I am, but then I am reminded of all my insecurities. Sometimes I make questionable decisions in life, until I realize I’ve become a questionable person.
Regardless, I am trying, always still trying—and that is enough.
