Day 4: List 5 things you would tell your 16 year-old self if you could.

1. FINISH SCHOOL!! I dropped out of high school in tenth grade. I would have been 6 months pregnant with Bradly, I was embarrassed to be in the same room with my friends and dropped out. I regret that single decision every single day of my life. I have a feeling that my best friends would have been supportive had I given them half a chance. 

2. Don't get so serious with boys. Or in specific one boy. However, I would not change a single thing, because I wouldn't have Bradly. But I would have stayed at home with my parents instead of moving out at 16 and getting pregnant at 17. 

3. Get the help with your anxiety issues, starting right after our house fire my life was never the same. I was constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I couldn't possibly be happy, if I was happy something would happen and ruin it. I felt (feel) like I didn't (don't) deserve to be happy. I'm always waiting for the bad to happen. 

4. Enjoy being young! You get old so quickly and you will soon forget what being young is like. I miss the days I could curl up with a good book and ignore the world. 3 kids makes that just about impossible. 

5. I wish I had gone to college. I have my GED and a great paying job, but I wish I had followed my dream. Which I will reveal in another blog post!
