Pick a better major, not just one that will get you good grades.
I think I was too focused on getting straight A’s and being the best in my class instead of focusing on challenging myself and trying new things. I was a liberal arts major but my most favorite subject was economics. Now that I’ve been working, I’ve gotten a foot into finance and I wish I had pursued that in college.

Don’t dye your hair purple…it won’t be as cute as you think it will.

I honestly don’t know. There are some decisions that I regret, but given the circumstances at the time, my life could have been a lot worse if I hadn’t made them.
I would probably tell my 20 year old self something about being more motivated to pursue what I want.

Don’t let anyone use, abuse, or walk all over you…focus more on school – give math a chance…and the right guy will come, he’s actually pretty close by. 🙂

Go easy on the makeup there, lil lady. You don’t need three coats of foundation AND a thorough shellacing of loose powder.

1. Wear better fitting clothes! (I fancied myself alternative and would thrift shop all the time with little consideration of fit)
2. Don’t slouch and don’t be so self conscious about your rail thin body (I’m 5’11”)
3.Don’t obsess about your guy friend so much! He’s a flirt, but bc he’s shorter than you so he doesn’t see you as a potential gf 🙁
4. Don’t hurt your bf that you’ll meet in a year by kissing his friend bc you like the attention. He’s a good guy and deserves better than that!
5. Don’t settle for being a B student! You can easily get As and scholarships if you try just a little bit.
6. Get braces now!

You don’t know everything. Stop acting like you do. On the other hand, start making your own decisions and stop being a follower. While most of the things you do in high school really won’t affect who you are going to become, learning how to be independent is going to be one of the hardest struggles of your life, so start learning now.

I was the worst at eating crap every day for lunch! I wish there had been a Jamie Oliver around then to tell me to shape up and start forming better habits… Also, how did my parents let me do that?
This is also something I wish younger me thought about! I wish I took the time to find a major that I really enjoyed and that I actually tried to LEARN rather than just get good grades.

@cirk: Stay on your path, you know who you are.
Things will get rought around 18 -21 and you will have to work through that period and come out on the other side, stronger for it. After that, it’s pretty much a piece of cake.. Oh sure there are dilemmas and tragedy and pain and joy, but you are well prepared for life.

While I think my life could’ve been easier, I don’t regret anything because I am who I am because of the decisions I made. However, I would probably tell myself that the people that I think are so important aren’t going to matter at all later in life. In fact, after school, I’ll most likely never see or hear from them again. In fact, this is what I tell my 16-year-old daughter now. They aren’t worth your stress.

I would tell myself that fresh vegetables are stunningly, fabulously delicious! And that weight training wouldn’t make me look butch.
