… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

I also Wanna….

Whoo. Thank goodness that’s over and done with. I feel much better already *winks*


Had a lekker weekend, huh? I didn’t. Was sick like a dog. Dunno why I can’t get sick during the WEEK so I can take SICK Leave?!?! *says that looking at heavens”. But anyways….


I also wanted to do the Letter to my 16 YO Self”, so here goes…..






Let’s get a few things straight sommer now –

  1.  That hair will NEVER be straight. And you won’t find it in a sheen-tube either. Deal with it and accept your frizziness. That’s the only hair you’ve got. So take care of it. 
  2. And don’t cut it short. You’ll live to regret it 
  3. The teeth – get the treinspore fitted. Jah, you’lll look like kak for the rest of your high school career, but let’s face it – it needs to be done and it’s not gonna straighten out on its own. And by the way, if you don’t do it now, it only gets worse…and think of your matric ball, for heavens’ sakes. Do you want to look like Knersus in your photies?


Steer clear of that oke from the shop – he wastes quite a few years of your life. Just leave the ouens. Period. Focus on school & finding yourself.


Don’t go to that teacher’s house. There’s groot kak & gossip waiting for you after that. You + your friend + he knows fokkol happened. But that’s not the story that does the rounds….Asshole…


People are not all upfront and nice. Some are really nasty. Learn to trust those instincts of yours. It keeps you out of a lot of trouble and saves you much heartache. And if something (or someone) smells fishy – it prolly is.


Don’t fall in love with that guy – he befuddles your brain left right and centre. And he is a gangster, despite his arguments to the contrary…. Groot trouble, girl, with a capital G. STAY AWAY!!!! And he dies anyways.


Learn to stand up for yourself now, coz’ no one will do it for you. And stop being bullied into submission. Grow a backbone, man!! You’ll survive, believe me!


Your relationship with your dad – *sigh* sorry babes, it gets worse than you ever could have imagined. Brace yourself.


Go easy on your mother – she seems like a cold duck, but she’s not. And she’s in your corner. Speak to her once in a while. You’ll see.


And good on you for not giving it up for that Jason-fella. Whoo, he was just after one thing. Keep looking after yourself the way you are.


And repeat this every day “I am awesome, I am worth something, I will survive this”


And you are, and you do turn out quite ok. Believe in yourself more. You’ll be just fine


See you around the block, GF!



That other guy (who wrote all those songs and sent the roses & poems?) turns out to be a much better bet, coz, babes, lets face it….He might look like kak, but he’s now in a mansion & driving an SLK….you can learn to love him, you know…;-)

    Oi!! You left out the part where you tell yourself that if you ever have the oppertunity to make friends with a freak that loves spiders from the “right” side of the Boerewors curtain, to grab that oppertunity and embrace it fully. *Linnie stomps off in a huff coz she now feels like chopped liver*
