What advice would you give your teenage self

Imagine you could go back in time and give yourself that one piece of advice that will help you through your life, what would it be?

For me it would be "don't follow the money, follow the calm"

Oh, and "don't let go of the paint brush"

Do your freaking homework for a change. You're going to need a scholarship after all.

Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

Don't let bullies define your approach to others. Most of your fellow students are indifferent to you, not hostile. Indifference is tolerable.

Watch the sugary cereals. Moderation is a good thing.

Watch the greasy foods. Moderation is a REALLY good thing.

Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

Do your homework, ask teachers questions when you can't figure it out. Ignore girls until you are 25 and have a steady job.

Re: What advice would you give your teenage self

MarkK, I would be able to convince myself easily because I would remember the secret crushes and other ideas that self would have had.

Don't trust politicians in general, no matter what their age.
