    Take up more opportunities to explore different things! Then maybe I wouldn't be so confused about where to go next...

    Make friends in Year 7 rather than wait for people to come to you. Otherwise, you will end up alone and friendless until the latter half of Year 10. However, this also kinda allowed you to pay attention in lessons though. And I saw a study suggesting revision doesn't help that much but paying attention the first time round does. So, do whatever I guess. Also, stop being a good child. Rebel. I watched a video by the School of Life and it is freaking me out. Then again, if you don't do these things you won't be me. I made friends. I'm beginning to change.

    That it's okay if you don't know what you want to do yet and it's okay, in fact great, to not follow the crowd! Life will fall together at some point, trust that!

    Just keep working hard and for god's sake look after yourself better. You're not going to do as badly as you think, you pessimist!

    i'd visit myself right before my last school year started, and explain that i'm about to get a really bad maths teacher and my new chemistry teacher is going to be fired soon for not teaching us anything, so i need to really knuckle down and learn how to study those subjects independently.
    also, that the majority of my final biology exam is going to be about evolution. don't assume that i already know all about it. because i don't. just read the textbook.

    You could do anything you want with your life. You just have to be willing to work hard to get it. Freedom is priceless and that is what motivates me now to want to work harder and harder to live the life I want.

    Don't burn yourself out. Don't study wayyy to early because you'll end up forgetting it anyway.

    If you want to do something, just do it.

    Thinking about what you want to do will probably take longer than just doing it.

    Time. It has no limit, nor does the things you can do. I'm not saying it will be easy, trust me it won't, but the rewards are worth every second of it. Dont live in the past, once something is done it can't be undone, so don't worry yourself about something you can't change.
