If you could give advice to your 19 year old self

If you could go back and give yourself at age 19 advice.. what would you say? I'm 19 now so I can't participate, but I'd like to see what you all would do. Maybe it will even help me out one day. Who knows.


Go!

Don't be a mechanic - pay is terrible compared to other trades

Never drink, all the mistakes I ever made were made under the influence. Took me a long time to quit.

I'd say work hard in school but don't forget to have fun as well. Don't try to grow up too fast. There's plenty of time for responsibilities, mortgages and large car payments

Go with your gut instinct and become an electrician. Pay is awesome and you really only work steady, not hard.

Whatever you do, never regret. The day your regrets outweigh your dreams is when you truly become old.
