Thoughts about 5ives

High Five
Just a thought from 12 September 2004 about .

Five things I would tell my teenage self if I could go back in time (with apologies to Merlin's 5ives):

1. Being depressed doesn't make you interesting, no matter how good you get at it.

2. There's no shame in making money from art. In fact, that's kind of a great goal.

3. Woody Allen is a terrible role model. You'll see.

4. It's not all your parent's fault. Or, at least, blaming them doesn't do anyone any good, least of all you.

5. The only person you should make a project out of saving is yourself.

This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page shows thoughts about 5ives, including:
