If you could go back in time, what advice would you give to your 12 year old self?

Money:
  • invest in Sysco foods
  • dont buy a vcr off ebay, it wont work

Girls:
  • Kelley - ask her out now, she may not be much now, but that will change in a year
  • Katie - Dont waste your time and money
  • Michelle - dont ruin this one, she'll move to germany after high school if you do
  • Katherine - dont ever talk to her.. she's a psycho and will drive you temporarily insane

School:
  • dont listen to what they say.. you ARE smarter than most of your teachers and you'll be just fine
  • homework IS overrated

12 years old was not a problem for me, so no changes. I look at going from high school to college.

Something a long the lines of, work harder, stay focused.

and finally save more money.

My advice to myself would be:

Ignore all the popular girls at high school, it doesnt matter what they think of you.

wow... hummm i guess iwould tell myself

Don't be so mean to you teachers, you will be a teacher in the future.
Don't worry about all the popular people... popularity will get them nowhere.
Start paying attention to computers you really will need to know how to use them.
You are much smarter than you allow yourself to be... smart does not make you a geek... it makes you money!!!
