If I knew then what I know now

A while ago Stephen Fry wrote a letter to his teenage self in G2. It was a wonderfully reflective piece, typically Fry-esque. It got me thinking. If you could talk to your teen self what would you tell her? Send your thoughts in a mail to ammania@gmail.com . Mention 'If I knew then what I know now' in the subject line. All letters will be posted in Lost in Post

Yes, that's me as an 18-19 year old.

At the risk of being shooed off your blog because I'm guessing you no like 'mush'-- you were darn cute at 18-19( which is it? 18 or 19? )Those dimples just got deeper eh:-)
