Dear Katherine

November 15, 2008

Heather Bakes gave me a good idea which she got from someone else, but who cares, from this point forward it is my idea since it’s on my blog which is all about ME!  The idea would be if you could write a letter to your former self, perhaps your college self or childhood self, what would you say.  Oh the length of this blog could go on and on but I will try to keep it concise.

Dear Katherine,

  This is your older and much wiser self, and surprisingly, despite all the tanning you have done, the much better looking self (hooray for baby fat cheeks going bye, bye).  There are just a few things I would advise you on, and in case you don’t know it now you will soon realize that lists make the world go round.  They help you organize and allow for much shorter funnier blogs (oh and blogs are like your current journal entries, only the world could possibly read them – they won’t but they could if they wanted).  Anyhow, here are the things that I wish you could know now:

1.       Despite what your professors say there ARE NOT practicing Sociologists in every field and finding a job will NOT be easy, go with something useful like business or fashion design.

2.      It’s true you really DON’T need algebra or any sort of math later in life all you need to own is a calculator! 

3.      PUT THE CREDIT CARD DOWN, and stop signing up for new ones just because you are offered some tacky free t-shirt which your older self will just throw away or use to dust with.

4.      There is life outside of Denton, Texas and higher quality men too.

5.      Enjoy being able to eat whatever you want and not gain an ounce or even think about it that ends about junior year so soak it up sista!

6.      Don’t smoke, it’s just gross and you won’t stick with it anyway so why even start.

7.      Set some damn goals, what’s taking you so long, what are you waiting for?  Do it now gahh, nobody is going to do it for you.  Oh and finding a cute top for Thursday night doesn’t count as a goal missy, think bigger than that.

8.      Buy ephedrine in bulk because they are going to outlaw it soon, so BUY NOW!  Heart attack schmeart attack, what do they know…..skinny jeans that’s what they don’t know!

9.      Despite your dire finance situation DO NOT I repeat DO NOT try to dye your hair yourself.  I have two words: orange and fried.

10. The right man WILL come along, just be patient and stop thinking it’s you….it’s not, it’s THEM.

I truly could go on but in the essence of all of your busy schedules I will just keep it at 10.  Oh, and I sort of also wish I wouldn’t have thrown away all of my Units clothing, I could be so hot and vintage right now.


P.S. Also, much younger and less wise Katherine, you will find 3 very awesome friends in college, and keep one you had all along, that you will have your whole life – Boones, Franzia and Yellow Tail……JUST KIDDING, you know who you are.

    Ok, I laughed out loud at #8. Spoken like a true former college gal who ate Whataburger at 2am and drank too many beers.
