What would you say to your younger self

This post is inspired by Irene. Oh boy, this is tough. It seems that I spent my entire youth wandering around, looking for some sort of meaning in life. Took comparative religion at university and this did not speak to me at all. Tried to be a hippy but I was too conservative for that.
Instead of the dreaded baby oil for sun tanning, we used to venture out in the snow filled backyards of Ottawa with cardboard covered in tin foil from my father's professionally laundered shirts. A great burn. Instead of moisturizing all these years, I should have saved the money to have a face lift. Particularly now when moisturizer is so expensive.
Be very careful what you wish for and include all related clauses that could potentially cause you grief.
Should have learned to swim, to drive.
I'm sure that's enough for now.
