      Plan heavily for your future happiness.  Learn the skills of food storage.  Learn various techniques of emergency preparedness and survival.  Stay clear of debt.

    On your 21st birthday you will be tempted to try to finish a whole bottle of Jack Daniels by yourself. Refrain from doing this. If you do it anyway, don't be surprised when you wake up wearing someone else's pants.

    I would tell myself "When that dream girl comes along who races your heart and stops your breathing, stay with her when she asks you to - because you are going to be divorced soon anyway"

    Don't marry her! She only wants your money and your British Passport.
    But as blind as I was, I wouldn't have believed me, anyway.

      I concur, I would say the same thing to me. And you wouldn't have been born yet, so while I was at it, I'd look up your mom and give her a little warning, so you wouldn't have had to put up with yours so long.

        Yes, but I have no children to avenge the situation. Frankly, I'm happy about that--poor kids would be stunted if I had them.

        I really would tell myself that, and wish I were not where I am right now--at least in some ways. In other ways, I am exactly where I want to be (but those are mostly professional, educational, and spiritual). When it comes to my home life--I just cannot live with other people...or else cannot live with a man...or else just have gotten a couple of rotten ones. Or something. But it sucks. And I am working on changing it...and if I knew then what I know now, I'd be in a different place.

    Don't let other people tell you what you should do.  Know yourself and follow your heart and your passion, and you'll find your true calling.
