If you could go back in time and warn yourself from doing something, what would you do?...

I'm not sure if there's anything. I suppose I might warn myself against going and getting a Ph.D. thinking I would become a professor. I didn't know that all colleges only want professors who will do a bunch of research whereas all I wanted to do was teach. But on the other hand, the degree has opened doors for me so I shouldn't complain.

This is a really difficult question. The things I would have warned myself against are kind of personal. I would note though that if I had not made certain mistakes, I would not have found myself where I am. So I guess I really would not change anything. That's a pretty amazing revelation for me.

I am the kind of person who believes that every choice has lead me to be where I am today. Good or bad, my decisions have brought me to where I am and helped to create the person I have become.

My advice to my young-self would be:
Whatever situation you're in, always stick to your own opinions, don't believe everything your parents and teachers say, andalways be yourself. Don't be afraid to smile or laugh, or else you'll become the placid person you are today.
Don't waste your childhood. Believe it or not, it's the best time of your life. Yes, I know you hate going to bed so early, but soon it will be the end of your innocence. You'll be bogged down with responsibility and homework.
And whatever you do, keep showing kindness. That's what will pull you through when the going gets tough. You show kindness to them, and they'll show kindness to you.

I wouldn't want to change anything because i wouldn't be who i am now if i change anything of the past. Right now I probably don't have have any regrets about my decisions made earlier.
