Letter To My 15 Year-Old Self
Dear 15 year-old Tonia Jordan,
I know this sounds strange, but I know somewhere in your silly sci-fi mind, youíre going to believe me: Iím you in 10 years. Thatís right - Iím writing this at the age of 25, and I have some advice for you.
First off, I want you to realize that High School is nothing. Once you graduate, youíll never see those people again. That group of kids who pick on you everyday because they think youíre trying to be like them: donít even worry about them! In a few years, youíll take their leader to court for sexual harassment, and youíll win. There will be new administrators at school who actually believe you when you tell them about the things youíve endured by those other kids.
Secondly, donít fight with your sister so much. I know you get frustrated with her, but itís only because youíre so close to one another. In the next few years, youíre going to be separated from her, and youíll miss her like crazy. Enjoy the time youíve got with her now.
Third, donít blame your parents so much. Theyíre really trying. In a few years, youíll realize that, yes, they did make some mistakes, but theyíre only human. They love you and care about you, and thatís the most important thing. In about 10 years, your Mom will go through a kidney transplant, and your Dad will change quite a bit.
Youíll have ups and downs, as is normal with anyone living in this crazy world. Youíll meet some great people, and some not-so great ones. There will be some death, but lots of life. Youíll have additions to your family, and some beautiful nieces and nephews.
One very exciting thing: Youíre going to go to college! The first in your family to go, and youíll be quite proud of that. Youíll even start a trend in your family - your sister will go to college one year after you do, and some of your cousins will go, as well.
Youíll go through some bad jobs, but youíll also have some fun times and meet some great new friends. Youíll finally be able to feel accepted among people. You wonít feel so alone anymore. Youíre going to move to the city, too! Youíll live in a tiny apartment next to an art school, and youíll have so much fun there.
Youíll also meet the guy of your dreams (hint, hint, you know him already!), and youíll get married. I know - the girl who swore sheíd never get married! Youíll be extremely happily married, and youíll laugh and smile everyday.
So, look on the bright side! You have so much to look forward to. Just hang in there until high school is over.
