30 Things Day 4: to my 16 year old self

4. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.

1) Study more seriously. 
2) Don't be afraid of failure. 

3) Don't quit the basketball team. 
4) You are skinny, girl!
5) Stop wishing you were finished high school and live in the present moment.
6) You're right in thinking that things will be better when you're done with high school and out into the bigger world but that doesn't mean you should zombie through these next 2 years. 
7) Switching schools wasn't the best idea, but instead of going to a 3rd different high school, go back to the first one!
8) Again: Take your studies more seriously. 
9) Again: Don't be afraid of failure.
10) Combine these two important things together: Don't be an underachiever! Stay away from mediocrity. Don't look down on overachievers, they're doing better than you are!!

Assalamualeikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuhu!
Well, you may not be sixteen any longer, dear sis. I just turned seventeen though, and some of these tips are quite valuable :-) Jazakillahu khairan!
