    Buy as many shares in Apple as you can in around 1996/1997, get bank loans if you have to.

    Don't create an account at EG, you'll waste days of your life.

    Also. Make the most of women who enjoy it up the poopensheiser.

    And of course FCUTA.

    Fantastic question. I don't know about anyone else but I often wonder how things would have played out in my life if I'd had insider knowledge. Directly, if I had the knowledge of an 18 year old at high school at the age of 11 and so on.

    I would instantly resist the advice of a doppelganger and run like hell. It would never work.

    Don't be so picky about who you sleep with. All that worry about losing friends through it is wasted - you'll probably lose touch with them anyway.

    Resolve your issues with estranged family members a lot sooner and maximise the time you have with them.

    But that was one of those unpleasant facts of life you can't control isn't it? I'm glad you survived it as lots don't. It's nothing you could have changed consciously even maybe if you'd been the most physically healthy person you could be.

    I would advise myself on the girls who have later admitted that they were indeed interested. And warned against the ones who were a waste of time or turned out to be nutters.

    Honestly? Don't do the "career" choice at university (law), do the subjects you love (history, science or english.)

    Something I've regretted ever since.

    And in general, don't give a fuck what people think.

    I'd tell myself that family, while loved, could not be relied upon and that I'd do well to pay more attention to schoolwork, pay less attention to school bullying, take my exams and stick with St. Johns cadets so that I could get a job that actually mattered, like joining the ambulance service.

    Trouble is, younger self would not listen. Younger self was an ever bigger idiot than older self :)

    Don't procrastinate on your dissertation for two whole years, and don't back off so much when you want to hit on a girl.
