I would tell my younger self lots of things. First off don't smoke or do drugs. then, apply yourself in school. You are wicked smart, and it doesn't
matter if highschool is bull crap. Play by their rules, so when you get out you can change their rules.
Which leads to the next, go to college. Stick with it, with a few years of sacrafice the rewards will be great. You are more likely to have a nice
home, a modest vehicle, and a comfortable lifestyle.
Also, don't worry about what others think about you, it's their trip. More than likely they are worrying about what you are thinking of them. In
fact, go out of your way to let others feel accepted. Lead by example.
Also, build credit. Protect it like a hawk. It's almost like social life blood in a capitalist community. Do not take money for granted. Fast food is
expensive, eat at home and eat healthy food. Be kind to yourself. Build a sturdy footing, and the rest will follow.
