I had a blast reading tweets from people like Neil Gaiman. His was: Dear 15-year-old-self, those comics you feel guilty for spending your barmitzvah money on each week will save your life one day.
Sarah's was: What I would tell my high school self #1: Do not kiss two boys in one day. You will get mono.
@zieglerjennifer: Dear High School Self: At your reunion, your high school crush will admit he always liked you. So ask HIM out...
nerdgoddess Dear HS Self: everyone is just as worried about what people think of them as you are. Relax a little ...
Some of my tweets to my teenage self were:
- Keep studying those idioms. One day, you'll write books--in English.
- The guy you end up marrying is so much hotter (and so much more worth it) than the one who broke your heart.
- You will feel in heaven when a 9 year old tells you you're beautiful. Because he's your son.
