PUT THE JOINT DOWN AND GO TO CLASS!

7 Nov

If you are not on Twitter, you missed some hilariousness the other day. I love how things get started on there. Yesterday, someone decided to start a thread called “tweet your 16 year old self”. It was so awesome on many levels. First of all, just to read what random people are recalling from high school is hilarious. Here are a sampling of some of my favorites:

~In 9 years you start losing your hair, stop running your fingers through it in french class

~Lord_Voldemort7 Lord Voldemort
Choose Neville Longbottom! Choose Neville Longbottom!

~#tweetyour16yearoldself You know that voice in your head that says “maybe I shouldn’t do/say this to this person”? Well that’s the voice you listen to. You dumb ass!

~Everyone knows you smoke, there’s really no point pretending you don’t.

~#tweetyour16yearoldself You are such an idiot. Get over her, stop moping around and don’t be a totally immature asshole. 🙂

~#tweetyour16yearoldself NOOO! Save it! its gonna be horrible!!

~#tweetyour16yearoldself do better in school. none of the shit you worry about will matter later and you’ll be screwed. GET NEW FRIENDS.

~#tweetyour16yearoldself that haircut is just as bad an idea as it seems. avoid at all costs

~#tweetyour16yearoldself Don’t let people get you down because one day you’ll have more self confidence and enjoy life

~#tweetyour16yearoldself stop smoking weed, you jackass

~Don’t ever pull the staying the night at your friends house when she tells her mom she is staying with you. BUSTED!

They all had the same underlying theme. Stop pulling stupid shit, go to class, you will get caught and your life will get better. It got me thinking…what would I say to my 16 year old self? So, here is the list I have compiled, in no particular order.

1. OK, don’t freak out…Milli Vanilli are lipsync’ing

2. You DON’T look cool with that cigarette in your hand. STOP SMOKING NOW!

3. For Christ’s sake! Stop crying over him! You will run into him 20 years later and say to yourself “What the hell was I thinking?”

4. Vanilla Ice is NOT cool.

5. Also, that guy at the skating rink in Florida who does his hair like Vanilla Ice? Yeah, he is not cool either.

6. You will get caught sneaking out of the house…everytime.

7. Put down the joint! You are losing brain cells with every hit!

8. While your at it, GO TO CLASS! With all those brain cells you are saving, you can learn something!

9. Most of your “friends” aren’t really your friends. There are only a select few that have lasted through the years.

And the final advice I would give my 16 year old self…

10. PUT DOWN THE FUCKING HAIR GEL! HAVING YOUR BANGS STYLED 10FT OVER YOUR HEAD AND STIFF AS A BOARD MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT!

So, what would YOU tell your 16 year old self?

    I know, I know…I followed this all day and just cracked up

    I loved, “believe me, oh, so believe me..he is SOOO not worth it.”

    and “don’t sleep with him. He says he wont’ ask to again, but it’s a lie.”
