    I got this idea from a Frazz comic I get by email. The one for December 14th got me thinking....

    I was wondering if anybody else wished they could tell themselves something that they learned since, and what.

    So, in roughly 15-20 words or less, just say what you wish you'd known before, and about what time in your life you would go back and talk to yourself.

    In my case, I wish I could go back about five years and tell myself to "Lighten up and loosen up. Let things happen, and don't be so uptight." I was too uptight when I entered Grade 9, and I've become looser as time passed - I just wish I could've learned that before.

    I would tell myself to not get so so emo over girls. For some insane reason, in high school I didn't want a physical relationship of any sort unless it was also deeply emotional. Now I wish I'd just loosened up (like you said) and had some fun.

    i would have told myself that i was an addict from the start, it would have helped a whole bunch and saved me years of torment and agony.

    "WATCH OUT FOR THAT TRUCK!!!"

    Really tho... it would have been not to fuck around so much in school... paying for it now :-/

    but then you have to think.. if you did change something about your past, think about all things you might not have now... I know some people and have done some things that I would never want to live without...


    ahhh...

    What a great question.

    I would prob tell myself to remember that faith in one's self is one of the most important things to have.

    Plus a few spoilers from Halo 2.

    I'd go back to last Christmas and tell myself not to get involved with my first and previous relationship. That really messed up my life a bit.

    I would tell myself that there is a lot of crazy shit between here and there, but I'm still smiling.

    ~I couldn't take away my pain. Pain helps make charater, and without charater I'd just be pencil lines in a really boring comic.

    ...Though I might warn myself to avoid that taco stand back in 1997.

    I wish I told myself that women don't uses condoms on their breasts before I made an ass out of myself when I was 6.

    I'd go back to when I was ten and was first allowed on the internet unsupervised and tell myself to STFU N00b. My early forum/chatting days were attrocious.
