Stop skipping those math classes, so you don't have to make them all up in college! Don't start smoking, quitting will be a pain. In the future you will never listen to all those heavy metal tapes your buying, and all that money will be wasted.

Hey guy -- learn well -- or sweat and worry over bills.

That nobody's perfect, so stop trying to be, and that it's none of your/my business what other people think of you/me, so stop tripping on it!

That the 'easier, softer way' is actually the harder way. To just brace yourself and deal with life, no matter what it serves up. That there is no buffer to pain, there's just delaying it.The pain will always catch up to you, so you might as well take it when it's happening. That you'll make it different.

push ahead. trust your instincts. and that there seems to be a plan...no one knows all the answers thats part of the point, i think...and above all live in the moment.

Don't be so hard on your self, get over your fears- life is very interesting and exciting. Go to Italy and study art like you dream...fear, marriage and babies will never make it happen only plant you further into the ground...Go to Italy and visit Pompeii like you read about in books...Go to Italy and speak the language of the world's most passionate people...Go to Italy and see Sistene Chapel and David....Go to Italy... it will change the course of your life.
