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.

Ellen DeGeneres was the “worst-case scenario.” She would expose me as being gay. She would force me to live a truthful, honest life, to be exactaly who I am with no pretense. I thank God for her every day.
I highly recommend inviting the worse-case scenario into your life. I met Ellen when I was 168 pounds and she loved me. She didn’t see that I was heavy; she only saw the person inside. My two greatest fears, being fat and being gay, when realized, led to my greatest joy, and yet I tried so hard to present myself as anything other than who I am. And I didn’t just one day wake up & be true to myself. Ellen saw a glimpse of my inner being from underneath the flesh and bone, reached in, and pulled me out.”

Ahh time for my interview for the management position at the pet resort! I was emailing the owner yesterday and we’re already hitting it off so I can’t wait to meet him in person. I’m kinda nervous, but I’ve never had an interview where I didn’t get the job so I just have to stay confident and I’ll hopefully get it. HERE WE GO
