things i wish i could tell my 23-year-old self

- You are enough, exactly as you are.

- This vegan thing is not going to last.

- You are not a lesbian. You are not even bisexual. Nice try, though.

- Contribute more to your 401(k).

- It's not enough to love yourself, you also have to like yourself.

- Labels like "dork" or "nerd" or "jock" no longer apply. To you, or anyone else.

- Stop worrying about everything. Not because you have nothing to worry about, but because the act of worrying accomplishes nothing.

- Ani DiFranco, while great, is actually not the very definition of poetic genius.

- If a guy acts like he isn't that interested in you, he's not.

- Figure out what you want and learn how to ask for it.

- Things are going to get a whole lot better.

- You can totally do this.

Love this list! I wish I could have told the 23 y/o blake the same thing :-] But I still do listen to Ani when I'm in the mood.

I like the point about learning something u like. I`m nearly 20, and I have the huge list of books I want to read, films to watch, things to learn and etc. Develop yourself - and somebody will for sure fall in love with u)
