If you could give your 20-year-old self one piece of advice, what would it be?

...basically, what the title says.

"Use the search function. I told you everything you need to know five years ago."

What advice would you give your 15yr old self?

You're doing good, kid. Don't worry about your lazy-arse attitude to life as it turns out just fine!

PS That £25 a month you save in a savings account thinking it'll be worth a fortune in 20 years time? Forget it. I earn more than you've saved each month now; buy beers.

The single biggest influence on your happiness for the rest of your life is who you marry. Be very careful, and choose wisely.

When you get older you will still think it was ok to own what you had fit in your rucksack.

Have more fun. Just don't tell anyone, coz world does not accept it easily about girls.

Oh, and when people nag you for cutting them off all excited when talking, know that it is referred to as a "constructive overlap" and is a positively valued compliment in Easter European Jewish communities.

Please don't take that tech job to pay for your studies. It will take you 20 years to find your way home to the world you love.

And if you take that teaching job, just for now, yes, it will stick to you. Because you like to give, and, because a half of you will stay child like. That will not change. :

It's a cool thread.
