NHBPM- Dear Slightly Younger Crippie


NHBPM Continues! I'm not completely freaked out about blogging every day... yet. Anyway... today's topic is...
Dear 18 year old me. Write a letter to yourself when you were 18. Be sure to tell yourself what to do more of, what to do less of, and what you have to look forward to in the next few (or several) years.

So here goes nothing... 

Sup? I'm writing you four years in the future to tell you that you are a going to be a... gasp... BLOGGER. Whod've thunk it, right? Moving on you are about to royally screw something up that you really shouldn't have... your first driving test. Don't let that whole "oh my God the guy giving me the test is talking on his phone thing" psych you out, just take your time and breathe. Either that or reaaaaallllyyyyy fail that sucker, none of this failing because of one mistake crap, FAIL FOR A BUNCH OF MISTAKES, go big or go home Crippie! Once you get your license you need to drive, get some experience on the road so your anxiety won't be so bad, go on the highways. PLEASE LEARN TO DRIVE ON HIGHWAYS. 
Please try to be more social Crippie, while you do have some very nice friends who don't have a whole lot of them. Try not to let your crippledness interfere with your social life. 
Speaking of crippledness, I suggest you get your ass into pain management ASAP. You might actually avoid that surgery on your hip if you treat it properly. Try to avoid that hip surgery if at all possible, it didn't do squat. 
Also, you should spend as much time with your grandfathers and your aunt as possible, you don't have all that much time left with them.
Getting all the sad crap out of the way, you are doing something very right. Your planning and concern for the future pay off greatly. Taking all those AP courses in high school have left you with enough room to enjoy your college experience without being overwhelmed and you are gonna have time for a kick ass senior project. You know your little habit of staying quiet and then surprising people with a kick-ass project... you are gonna do that soooooooooooooooooooooooo many times during college, especially your last semester. 
The next 4 years are going to be full of lots of challenges, lots of ups, lots of downs. But you will get through them with flying colors.
Crippie's Tippie- Invent a time machine so letters like this would actually be useful! Or you can find the Tardis... whatever works for you.
