from a friend......(she asked to remain nameless)..Why do I DO these things???
1. How old do you wish you were?
16 with the same knowledge I have now of life, and I would re-do some terrible mistakes that I made..but then after correcting them, I want to be zapped back to my current age. Who would WANT to be 16 in today's world?? yikes!.
