The concept behind Dear Me: A Letter to My Sixteen-Year-Old Self is highly imaginative and intriguing: if you could tell your 16-year-old self about the present, what would you say to him or her?
The idea was first sparked at an Elton John AIDS Foundation event that encouraged celebrities to write letters to their 16-year-old self, and the letters have now been compiled into a neat, candid and emotional book that can be purchased on Amazon. Among the many celebrity participants of this unique project are Jonathan Alex Ross, Debbie Harry, Emma Thompson, Danny Wallace, Alan Carr, Patsy Kensit and, of course, Elton John himself.
If I could tell my 16-year-old self anything, it'd be to indulge in all of my weird quirks and buy some Apple or Starbucks stock.
