" Don't take a year off after highschool. Go straight to college. You really don't need a break."

"It's OK to quit a job for a better one. You need to get over the loyalty thing and do what's best for you. An opprotunity like this only comes around once in a lifetime"

"An ex boyfriend will try to reconnect with you. RUN...NOT WALK AWAY FROM THIS FOOL! He is an ex for a reason."

"When you get into a relationship, never settle for less than what you deserve."

"When your boss tries to kiss you...punch him in the balls and walk away. The "relationship" will not end well, trust me."

Don't rush to start a career, get a house, and get married. Enjoy your younger years longer.

Don't buy that first house!

You meet the love of your life when you are 30 so slow down trying to find him before that.

Pick a major, stick with it, and fInish college!

Don't take life so seriously, loosen up.

Learn to budget!

Your metabolism will slow down so learn to eat well now.

The housing market will crash - do not refinance.

Don't go to extraordinary lengths to save your pets because more often than not, you're doing it because you can't let go.

Don't get discouraged, you will meet your soul mate.

Its OK to quit a job you don't like

Take your time looking for a career

You have your entire life to work - what's the rush?

1. Sex can wait. 

2. not everyone at school looks at you the same way you do. they care more about themselves than you.

3. Don't be so shy, speak up! And tryout for that play you so badly want to be in.

4. Don't be friends with people who only use you for a ride or try to get you to do bad things. They aren't really your friends!!

5. You are beautiful (and very skinny), don't obsess over your flaws in the mirror every day!!!

Stop comparing my life to others. We all follow different paths.

Its OK if your introverted & quiet. Being anti social does not mean your work any less.

Do the best that you possibly can in school, even if that means that you have zero time for anything else.

Keep your virginity. You won't see, hear, or talk to ANY of the people you see right now again after graduation.

Save your money, every single penny.

Keep calm and prepare for your future, you only have to deal with mom and dad's abuse for a short while longer.

Take advantage of mom and dad's dental insurance. Get your wisdom teeth pulled, get any and all work you can think of before turning 18!!
