TEN THINGS I’D TELL MY MUCH YOUNGER SELF

1.
She will make you a donkey, though she says it’s a bear, and you’ll name it Cedric, (go ahead and spell it with an S if that’s what you want). You’ll take him with you everywhere, and his ear will fall off.

2.
You’re the only one you’ve got. Remind yourself of that often.

3.
Avoid the damned architect. Repeat after me: Avoid the architect. He’s a disease with a pretty face.

4.
Don’t let your tongue run away with you.

5.
Let someone else make the bed occasionally. That’s a metaphor for god’s sake. Do a bit of prep: look up metaphor in the dictionary.

6.
Know the weight of your own life. This will make absolutely no sense to you now, but one day you’ll understand that you’ve left your mark on the world. And it was good.

7.
Parents die. Don’t let the pain of it kill you, too.

8.
Your dog knows best: take a walk.

9.
Relax about it. It’s true, some things are written.

10.
Your father loves you. Your mother tried. And that’s the truth.
