Ok. I'm done tooting my own horn. Out of 267 published blog posts, I found 22 that were either a) important or b) still amusing to me. Please humor me and my trip down memory lane.
Here's to the future! More mostly mediocre and sometimes inspired blog posts about the stupid things I did as a kid!

- Yes, you will eventually date someone. It will not be in high school and the first couple of people you date will not end up being "Mr. Right." They will be the "Mr. Right Now" for a few moments in time that will eventually end. And guess what? You'll get over it.
- No, you will not end up with that cute, pseudo-hippie boy in your English class no matter how much you think you're right for each other. You will get over this as well... but it might take an embarrassingly long time.
- You will go to college locally and things won't really change much from high school except that there will be fewer cliques and vicious gossip. You won't love college when you're there, but you'll kind of miss it when it's over.
- One day you will not have so much time for writing even though you'll wish you did. Your writing will be a little bit better, but it's going to be harder to finish things because of your busy schedule and desire to sleep. Enjoy all this extra free time while you can.
- Eventually, going to bed at two in the morning will be the exception and not the rule.
- Some of the people you detested in high school were actually fine people. One day you'll realize that maybe you judged people a little too harshly.
- The people you consider your best friends now may not be there a few years from now. Some of them will still be your friend, but life will take you in so many different directions that staying in touch will be difficult. Try to appreciate them now.
What would you go back and tell your younger self?

- my bed
- my ottoman
- my floor
- a receipt that was lying on the living room floor (you got props for that one, though)
- the rug in the living room
- the kitchen table
- the coffee table
And, again, it's starting to seem kind of malicious because of the frequency that this throw up is found in my room. Sookie, I've even seen you come into my room, throw up, and leave my room. I'm glad you feel safe in my room, I guess, but enough is enough. My bedroom is not your own personal pukeatorium.
Your mother (my roommate) is under the impression that you eat too quickly and/or have a sensitive stomach. I think it's your need to be the slimmest cat in the house. But let's face it. You wouldn't have a problem maintaining that status even if you didn't purge. Your sister Pixie and sister-cousin Marnie are always going to be the fatties.
Sookie, I hope that you will not take too much offense at my desire to voice my concerns. Also, if you do not understand this letter due to your lack of mental capacity, please allow Pixie to interpret in a way that you can understand.
With Concern, Mild Annoyance, and Moderate Love,
