I wish that I knew what I know now when I was younger

*gratuitous David Tennant* 🙂

-Always tell your parents you love them, even if they make you crazy sometimes.

-When you start college, you DO NOT NEED CREDIT CARDS; in fact if you can make it though life without them, the better. Trust me. I learned the hard way, am still learning in fact.

-Always have a backup plan to your backup plan.

-You don’t need to keep up with the Joneses.

-Be yourself. No one else can.

-Filing for bankruptcy has implications you won’t feel right away, so don’t get into a situation where you have to do it. Once again, trust me.

-An education is important. Don’t waste it chasing after boys or girls or stars (literal or metaphorical).

-Once you start working out, stick with it. Don’t quit. It’s really hard to go back to it once you’ve given up.

-Before you commit to anything (a new car, a new job, a new boyfriend) make sure you are getting into something that *you* want, not just for the sake of having it.

-Friends come and go. True friends cry with you at gravesides. True friends cry with you when you go away to college. True friends make rice for you at 5 am after you’ve had surgery. True friends know they can write to you out of the blue and you’ll reply like time stands still.

-When you’re in a relationship and something doesn’t feel right to you, then it IS NOT RIGHT. Don’t stay out of obligation or because you feel you can’t do any better. You’re worth more than that.

-Once you get kicked off the horse, it’s awful hard to get back on.

What do you wish you knew when you were younger that you know now?

    It may be hard to get back on the horse, but it’s the only way you’ll ever get anywhere.

    And don’t waste your early regenerations on being a grumpy old man.
