Pauline at 12.

I was visiting The Frog and Snail Society blog and found this very fun video. Jeremiah McDonald talks to his 12 yr old self. No really. When he was 12, he made a VHS(!!) video for his older self to watch. The exchange is hilarious, and a bit poignant.

If you had a chance to go back and be 12, what do you think you’d tell your older self?

And now, there be links….

Two Nerdy history Girls is a fun blog site for authors and readers. I thought this post about ice cream cones is appropriate for a hot summer day.

And I can only approve of someone who supports not feeding bears (blog post by Diana Beebe).

I love comments and because I do…

Comment on any August blog post and be entered into the drawing for another $10 AnaBanana Gift Card of awesomeness. :-)

    That was FABULOUS! I loved the video…so cool!
    I think the most important thing I could have told myself was…that I was worthy. I was enough. That to love myself was to set myself free from all the peer pressure and bad choices I’d regret down the road. And that loving myself…was easier than I thought and totally doable with just a wee bit of work and effort…but the pay offs would be huge!
    Happy weekend!

      That would be a great thing to tell yourself! I think its about 12 that girls’ self esteem starts to crash. If only you knew… do you remember, did you see The Kid? Found that quite poignant. It’s like they needed both POV’s to understand. Very sweet. Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for the shoutout, Pauline! 🙂 I’m not sure what my 12-year-old self would tell me. Learn to play golf, avoid that guy later ’cause he won’t change, don’t wait to follow your dreams, don’t be so self conscious about doing. I’m not sure that awkward girl would know to tell me all that, but I’d sure want to tell them to her.

      Good stuff! I do think I wouldn’t telling my young self good stuff, but yeah, not sure what she’d tell me. Maybe remember what a dweeb we were? LOL! Thanks for stopping by and most welcome for shout out. 🙂
