I need help with a project!
« on: September 25, 2013, 08:02:37 AM »

What would your 15-year-old-self ask you today? What would you tell your 15yo self? (it doesn't have to be 15, just think of your teenage self).

I'm doing a series of vlogs for a project and I had the idea of my 15yo self interviewing me as a way to share info about me. I have a few questions in mind, but I'd love some input as well. It'd also help to know whether you'd mind using your questions in the video.

Thank you in advance!

1) "Why'd you stop getting high?"

2) "Get a passport, kid. Now."

this is fantastic advice!
I went to omegle and chatrandom and asked the same questions. you'd be surprised how many men with their c*ck out actually take the time to answer me and share their life's regrets. I will post some of the best answers when I'm done. Thank you!

15 yo to me:
- Why aren't you still skateboarding?
- Do you still fantasise about stuff you want to accomplish?
- Are you really an adult now? Like for real?
- What's up with the hair?
-

me to 15 yo:

- Dude play more piano.
- Trust me you will get laid.
- Stop playing those goddamn videogames!
- And no, those pants really look ridiculous.

No problem. And I had quite long hair when I was younger so I thought that might be the response of 15 yo me :)

And thanks! I'm still not a 100% satisfied with my piano skills but I'm getting there :)

15 years old to me:
- Has your sexual and social life upgraded?
- Do you still daydream about things you want to accomplish or about things that would never happen, but that sounds cool it it would?
- Do you still have platonic love towards famous woman?
- Have you finally beat shyness?
- Was college really cool?

Me to my 15 years old
- Don't listen your sisters too much and listen a little more your lads. It will probably help your love and sexual life in the mid future.
- Don't waste your time with these girls. They will never want to be with you. Stop searching for them.
- Start drinking. Now.
- Get high, at least once. Fuck off what your family will think.
- Stick around with your nerdy friends all the fucking time. Fuck off those cool kids. They are not really your friends.
- Go seek a therapist. Now.
- For  fucking sake, focus on something! You can't have 1.000 hobs! If you want to be a gamer designer, study it. If you want to play bass or the piano, study it. If you want to write, write. But please, CHOSE ONE AND JUST ONE!

15 year old questions to me now.
Are you happy?
Do you still paint?
Do you love anyone?
Have you seen the world?
Is it any better than what I have now?

What I'd tell myself.

You are beautiful, you should believe it.
You do make good choices and you aren't stupid.
Take the tests the doctor said to take, take all the pills and don't stop them.

15 year old to me:
- Are you married to a foreigner?
- Do you live in Berlin?
- Do you sing in a band and write plays?
(Don't tell me if you don't.)

Me to 15 year old:
- I know you're excited about your first mobile phone but do not drunk text!
- Be nicer to everyone. Your brother especially.

I hope this is still on going.

Me to a 15-year-old me:
-Do not date B when you're 20. He seems nice, and he is, but he's just very confused and is finding temporary shelter in the house of God while he figures things out for himself. The relationship will only be destructive and will leave you extremely heartbroken. Although, you'll write a lot of good music. If you can, start dating him now, but not in the next five years.
-Your singing will take you places and you will meet so many people.
-Don't start smoking cigarettes. You will quit before your 18th birthday and you will keep it off for a whole year. Don't have a victory smoke, and definitely don't smoke again after that. Your lungs will keep you running and they will definitely keep your high notes and long phrases.
-Heartbreak is good. It will show you how to be alone and how to live independently and to basically stop relying on others. You will need it. And again, you will write some of your best songs when you're alone. Don't fret, though, you'll have a lot of sex with people. And 80% will be good to you. Just not you to them. So if it can make the heartbreak less achy, be nice.
-Keep riding that bike, homie, and don't ever think because you have a high metabolism now you can keep off your weight. Sorry homie, it's the truth. Just keep eating breakfast and riding your bike everywhere. You will be so much happier.
-Next year you will see The Dresden Dolls play in the winter. In the summer, that same year, you will see a secret Amanda Palmer show, where you will not be ID'd, you will meet her and she will tell you how much she loves watching your videos on YouTube and everything will be awesome.

15-year-old me to present day me:

-Be happy
-Keep writing music, it's what's keeping us alive day in and day out.
-What is being in love like? And will creating music be the only way to cope with heartbreak?
-What's riding a fixed gear like?
-You're just as great as you were when you were 15, but you are more mature than me and have more life experiences. You are still rad, don't think otherwise.
-We all have our insecurities but I think we're doing just fine. I love you.

From 15 yo self:
- Have you published a book yet?
- Have you learnt how to get out of your head yet?
- Have you travelled?
- How many languages do you speak now?
- What IS your sexual orientation?
- Does love make any more sense?
- Do the answers to these questions actually matter in the long run?

To 15 yo self:
- Be more flexible; with yourself and others.
- Never EVER stop making time to read.
- Never delete anything you write. You WILL regret it. Hard.
- Who and how you love doesn't matter, just remember to keep love for others and love for yourself inextricably connected. One will never work without the other.
- You really are special. Never lose that.
- The notion of "identity" is overrated. Just be you, no matter what that means at the time.
