Dear Young Anthony

Dear Young Anthony

Believe it or not, I was a kid once.

Believe it or not, I still am.

People make mistakes and people overcome them. It would be nice to have never made them in the first place.

If you could tell your younger self something, what would it be? Would you tell yourself:

  • Don’t touch the stove. It’s Hot!

  • You can’t make that yellow light, you’re going to cause an accident.

  • Don’t make your own fireworks, you’re going to kill someone.

  • Is it really such a good idea to spray paint that wall?

  • You don’t need to “chill,” you need a job.

  • Go to school today. Sleep isn’t more important.

Sound about right?

This is what I would say. Here’s my letter to Little Anthony:


Dear Little Anthony,





If you didn’t make those mistakes, you wouldn’t learn shit.
