Bloganuary Prompt Advice for Teen Self
I would have told my teenage self to keep writing- because funnily enough, writing is now my job! There’s so many years I’ve missed writing opportunities, stories I can no longer remember well.

- To travel as much as possible
- Smile more
This nicely ties into my general life mantra:
2022 is subdued, starting really slowly, (Thanks, no thanks, Covid Gods). It feels like waiting for a strange dog to pass me in the street, a dog so large with such a stare that I’d best calculate its propensity for friendship, or aggression. [I hope I am wrong about you, 2022]
