In recent years I've become preoccupied with what current me would tell past me. Sometimes current me strains to hear whatever future me is yelling through time. If Trump remains president, someone somewhere is gonna to invent time travel because, well, so many reasons. Until that happens, listen up younger me:
- •To elementary-school me: Realize you can say, "No," and say it. Daily.
- •To 2012 me: That guy you're moving 2,000 miles to be with, who seems a little ambivalent about the relationship at times, is a lying piece of shit. But still go, because California is beautiful and you're gonna learn a lot about yourself, but not in a particularly pleasant way.
- •To one-month-ago me: When that guy you've had a crush on for over a year, who you think the world of, who pursued you for weeks (sending you songs and poetry), says after you've been intensely making out and you're practically naked in his bed, "Yeah, I need to be single." RUN. Like, put your clothes on, get the fuck out of there, don't look back.
