Right, my dear, enough procrastination here. You are going to sit down and write one of those applications now, understood? Lazying about all day is all very nice, but if you want a new job, you're going to buckle down & do something for it. Off you go.

Stop moping, the end is in sight. Keep plugging away and you'll get there. Remember to do something every single day towards your goal so you don't feel stuck and hopeless.

Well, I didn't tell myself off either - what's wrong with simply telling yourself to do something, with motivating yourself?

And get rid of those mean thoughts about yourself! They don't help & I would bet most (or all?) of them are complete lies.

Grow up! there's no point wanting a boyfriend when you don't know any boys and you're going back to Reading in five weeks anyway!

And stop worrying about looking for a job, because god knows Dad won't care if you're home for a couple of months, and in any case you know you don't have time to do applications and certainly not go to interviews halfway across the country.

And when I set a word target for the day, I expect it to be achieved!

Oh, and in advance: do not kill your tutor. I'm pretty sure its illegal enough that they won't let you graduate.

Get up off the floor, dry your eyes, and START LIVING AGAIN. Self pity is not an acceptable emotion, or a recipe for a good life.

For the love of god, woman, STUDY! Being talented in Language Arts doesn't mean you get to slack off on Geometry. Stop being so lazy and arrogant and start turning things in on time! Mad

You're such an idiot! You're setting yourself up to be hurt. You know he doesn't like you the same way you like him. He isn't even bothering to pretend this time around. So why did you go and make out with him? He isn't going to suddenly discover he has feelings for you, and you aren't going to get back together, so stop fooling yourself.

This isn't a telling off, but it is a bit of a cold water splash. In some ways, you're walking on untested ground... keep your head about you, don't get carried away and too drunk on fun when important things are involved, but most of all, always listen to that inner voice that knows best. Don't ever lose it, ignore it, or drown it out... that's the surest way to get yourself into the sort of predicaments you're trying to avoid.

I was going to tell myself off for eating a quater of a cake in a day, but fuck it- I'm going for a run instead.

You.

Fucking stand up for yourself more. And try and think of good things about yourself, and try and ignore the bad things about yourself. Just try.
