Letter to 18 year old me

Published September 4, 2012 by theycallmemrstibbs

Hey 18 year old Lisa,


You haven’t met me yet but I’m you ten years from now. I thought I should give you some heads up on some mistakes, no I’ll call them errors that you make between now and age 21.


1) When you’re filling out your UCAS application avoid any sports course, as you will not find the job you are looking for. Perhaps try an English literature course. You know you like it as much as sport, so maybe just think about it.


2) When you get your offers through for university don’t take the first offer you receive, just because it’s in Yorkshire, not that there’s anything wrong with Yorkshire, but try somewhere different. Maybe try for Manchester, you might meet your future husband there, (which you did), but think about 3 extra years with him.


3) Don’t be as trusting. You will just end up getting hurt.

4) Don’t go to every Halloween as a fairy it gets repetitive. Even if you change the colour every year.


Anyway I think 4 is enough for your head to cope with for now.

P.S. Going back to the topic of your future husband, I won’t leave any spoilers, but you’ll know who he is.

P.P.S. Also with your future husband you will move to California then the Netherlands.

    Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
