I would tell myself to not screw up that one job interview that could have saved me the last three years of working in fast food hell. Seriously, the fast food industry is soulless.

1 Go to college now because it will be less fun in fourteen years.

2 If you want something, don't let anyone stop you.

And you choose what? What did you choose to become?

Pay the mortgage, cunt!

What the hell did you do with the flower vase by the way? (I can't even remember).

Also, your friends are fags. They don't exist. Now go eat some ice cubes. Don't get fat.

And work that ass.

Wow! Good luck!

I kind of wish I had the foresight to think in this manner, but looking back, my college years were as dismal as a Lemony Snicket book. (So I never really thought about it.) :P


So to my 20-yr old self, if I could travel back in time:

1) Be fearless!
2) Don't worry about what others think. Keep a diary. And learn more about yourself, what you think.
3) Don't take the safe route. You can always fail at that also. But if you had the choice, wouldn't you rather fail at something you wanted to try?
4) Make friends with people who share the same interests, same goals. Not just with people you happen to be around and whose company you enjoy. Make friends with those people, too, but people in the former category will more likely be able and willing to help you later on. College is a great place to meet/ develop those relationships. Caveat: This only works if you're still in college. If you're past college and still hanging out, that's kind of creepy!
5) Save early. (With the right kind of investment, money grows exponentially, not linearly.)
6) Learn another language. Again, start early. You can develop/ refine your abilities through the coming years.
7) Don't work for an evil corporation. Also, avoid bosses who act like Hitler wannabes.
8) Remember: It's never too late to start again. You can always act to change your future if you don't like your present.


Best wishes to your future self!

what happened at your neighbors house?


@ OP
I think I would tell myself to not waste money on canadian girls and also to move to California sooner than later.
Going to college with my best friend (while i graduated and was happy) was a bad idea and wish I chose another place of education.
Possibly study a minor as well as my Major of study.
Make more money.
Don't take the prescription pill Prenazone because it makes you very loopy in a bad way.

California is seriously over-rated. It's a huge let down once you figure out what's what. Unless there is something very unique that is in California and nowhere else, and you need that thing (whatever it is) to get ahead in life, stay out of California. If you can get it from somewhere closer to home, then get it from closer to home.

Moving to California doesn't solve any problems nor give you some kind of "magical" advantage that you can't get from closer to home. All you end up with is getting is slammed with a much higher cost of living combined with lower wages. It's set up that way, by "The Man", out here in California.
