    I would bunk every single day at school from age 12 (Something I didn't have the self- confidence to do at the time)as it really was a ridiculous waste of my valuable youth.As I knew- ok strongly suspected- even at the time it would be!

    Everything I would have experienced and done instead would I believe have meant no other alterations to my life would be necessary.

    Well, let me just start at the beginning...

    I wouldn't have refused to take that test in second grade that would have allowed me to skip a grade. I refused to take it because they kept talking about "challenging" me, and that sounded scary. I didn't want to be rushed onto something I wasn't fully prepared for.

    I also would have started planning to go to university earlier. At the time, I didn't know what I wanted to do, so I didn't even try to apply for scholarships. I just didn't want the distraction from my classwork.

    I didn't try taking AP classes because I didn't want to risk making a lower grade if I couldn't handle them. If I'd known that a lot of schools use them as an entrance requirement, and that there's no way to take them after high school, I might have considered taking AP classes as well.

    After graduating from high school, I wasted several years of my life working for my father, and then when his business started having problems, I didn't have any references from non-relatives. If I could do this all over again, I would have tried to earn something beyond a high school diploma right after graduating.

    I would learn to deal with stress and anxiety from a young age. 95% of all my problems would disappear if I could just chill out and deal with things better
