    Ok, here's the deal:

    You get to travel back to meet yourself at your 18th birthday, at a point when you are momentarily alone.

    You have only 30 seconds to tell/warn your younger self about one thing of critical importance.

    What one thing will you tell your 18-year old self?

    Start seriously working out. Future-you is not having fun starting from square one.

    Really watch your fingers upon using a Santoku knife when you're 23 icon_eek.gif Either that, or opt for something other than a flimsy carrot.

    I was going to impart some words of wisdom, but this would be so much better.

    I'd give myself a big hug and just let me know that I'm actually pretty normal - don't let the crazies bother me too much. A 'you're ok kid, and really, things will end up being pretty awesome' thing icon_smile.gif

    1) Start working out; the university's rec center is amazing and you'll regret not maximizing all of the time you can.

    2) Live life and party more, you're a smart kid you can manage both studies and fun.

    EDIT:Aww man, can't believe I didn't even think about the lottery...

    Don't waste time/money going to law school.

    Buy Apple/Google/Microsoft stock.

    Lotto numbers are a clever idea too.

    I would tell myself to HAVE MORE SEX! And don't study in school and work so damned hard because you are very young right now. I know most of you guys probably don't understand what I'm talking about because you had a lot of sex, or are having regular sex. I would tell myself to experiment! Go to that orgy you were invited to in high school after the game at Keith's house (god I really regret that decision now that I didn't go). Or when me (16 years old) and Evan(17 years old) were in the locker room and while we were showering he asked me if I wanted to go hang out in the sauna with him and I said no. I said no, dammit! And he was hot as hell! (Darn my catholic Jesuit school upbringing). Man, I wish I could go back. So many opportunities I didn't take. What the hell was wrong with me? Well, it's definitely not like that now. If an opportnity comes, I will fuck, without hesitation.
