Look at you - all grown up and in your first year at University! Watch out world! I know you think you’re doing really well at the moment, (and you aren’t exactly doing terribly) but you’re about to struggle with a few things life is going to throw at you and I thought you might want to know how to handle it. Feel free to ignore this and carry on watching America's Next Top Model (ANTM) but don’t say I didn’t warn you…
1. Their passion is not yours: It’s normal to not know what you want to do at 18. Yes, I know your best friend wants to do marketing and the lady at the cookie shop wants to do HR and work for Qantas but that doesn’t mean you should do it. Seriously. I know that you’re confused right now but following other people’s passions because they sound remotely interesting will not help you find your own. Do internships in your University holidays to get your foot in the door with some experience and you’ll shortcut your way to your ideal career in no time.
3. Get off MSN and get in the kitchen: Seriously, get off the computer and start letting your mother teach you how to cook. I promise in five years when you are no longer living at home you wish you could cook a bigger variety of things other than toast and scrambled eggs. Groan.
Oh, and Ann Ward wins that season of ANTM- sorry couldn’t help myself!
What would you go back in time and tell yourself?
