Notes to My Younger Self

For International Women's Day, CBC is asking women what they would tell their younger self. 
What would I tell my younger self?
1. You are beautiful, and thinner than you think you are. Embrace it. Wear the bikini while you can. Love your body, as it will be with you the rest of your life. 
2. Stay in touch with your kamp friends. Who got hired as CIT and who didn't will eventually become irrelevant. These are the girls with whom you grew up. Treasure them. 
3. Quit smoking now. It will be so much harder at 25.  
4. The best thing you can do is learn to take care of yourself, rather than trying to find someone who will do it for you.  
5. Your mother is an amazing woman. Treat her with respect and recognize what she does for you everyday.  
6. That guy with the steel toed boots and blue hair outside Southam Hall? Totally worth a second look.
