Things I Wish I Could Tell 16-year-old Mia

  1. The world doesn't end after your first breakup. There are going to be a few more breakups along the way. Not just in love, but in career and friends.
  2. Your skin will get so much better. Stop clogging your pores with bad foundation and exfoliating with benzoyl peroxide scrub every night. Fixating on it will only make it worse.
  3. You'll meet a ginger looking gentleman from England and fall madly in love with him.
  4. One of the most important people in your life will die a painful death. Cherish that person before it's too late.
  5. You're going to find vocal fry disingenuous. Don't pretend to have it just for fun.
  6. You're going to hate running now, but it's the one thing that's going to save your life when life feels granular and tough.
  7. Keep smiling. It looks good on you.
