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

my not-so-obvious transformation from 16-18 years old.

If there are 5 things that I'd tell my 16 year-old self, most probably I'll tell her:

1. ALWAYS BE YOURSELF: There may be times that you think you're lesser than most people or that you're not as good as your friends or you're not what your parents want you to be, but always remember that God made each and everyone of us different and gifted each of us a special thing that makes us glimmer and sparkle from everybody. Trust on your capabilities and hone your abilities. In 2 years time, you'd get to appreciate these things in you. The things that you thought weren't there are actually there hidden at the deepest part of your soul. Just be yourself and you'd get to shine as brightly as you'll be 2 years from now.

2. KEEP AN OPEN MIND: Don't be scared to get out of your bubble every now and then. Learn to socialize, be exposed to the different orgs and comms in your school, just be out there and be open to possibilities. Screw those plans that you have on your head! I promise you, those precious plans you have right now would just go to waste when you reach 18! Be open to anything! Just now your limitations, of course! 

3. SMILE MORE OFTEN: I know that you're starting to develop that inner "fierceness" you have in you. Don't worry, those are one of the things that people like, if not love, about you. But it does give people you don't know a not-so-nice first impression on you. You can be fierce in your amateur photoshoots, or to your close friends but not to people you haven't met. SMILE! Really, it will help you a lot in the future! ;) Plus, it will make you look younger!

4. START FINDING OUT WHAT YOU WANT FOR COLLEGE: At this time, you're starting to consider taking up Dentistry. Don't worry, you'll get there! But there'll be an uneasy feeling while you're taking up this course. When you go to college, there's no going back! Think about this thoroughly before you  senior year starts. Here's a tip, you might want to think about taking up Psychology. ;)

5. STUDY HARD, I MEAN IT: Like what I mentioned in no. 2, you have this plans that you really want to fulfill. But your study habits now won't really help you achieve plans. Actually, your study habits were the reason why you failed in achieving your plans. So, study hard! AIM HIGH ALL THE TIME. If all else fails, just keep an open mind. :)

16 year-old me, you're doing great as of now. Just follow those 5 things and I promise you that you'd succeed! Can't wait for you to turn 18!!! ;)
