My To-Do List

  • Take your time with your coursework and actually get it done long before it's due in. Not the night before, you're only going to make yourself sick.
  • Finish and send off your MA applications. Don't leave them until the last minute like an idiot.
  • Get your ears pierced again- you've been thinking about it long enough.
  • Take more risks and make more mistakes. Make more of a fool of yourself (if that's even possible) and don't let yourself get scared out of anything.
  • Fall in love. Deeply. Never regret it.
  • Lose weight.
  • Keep it off.
  • Love your body. It's not perfect, but it's yours.
  • Learn to play the acoustic guitar.
  • Never miss a chance to let your family and friends know that you love them.
  • Stop talking about all the novels you'd like to write and WRITE THEM. You could do it if you'd just put your mind to it.
  • Start singing and acting again. You know you miss it.
  • Read all those bloody books that have been gathering dust on your shelves for years. I know you have a lot of work, but you can afford a break once in a while to read something you enjoy.
  • Find a part-time job somewhere. Anywhere. It's not fair on your Mum and Dad that you never have any spare money of your own to fall back on.
  • Find another one in Lancaster when you return for your MA. You can get out and meet new people.
  • Travel. Go to Northern Ireland and America and Mexico and Portugal and anywhere else that catches your eye.
  • Say yes more.
  • And say no when you need to.
  • If you're still thinking about Thailand this time next year then go and do it. It will be amazing.
  • Listen to advice.
  • Ignore it when necessary. (Note: as you are still very young and stupid this will be most of the time)
  • Always ask questions.
  • Take more photos- you want memories to show your children.
  • Smile. Life is good.
