Thoughts to pass on to 18 yr old me: Most important of all, QUIT SMOKING NOW! You'll save yourself $60,000 in 27 years, not including the amount of money you will spend buying cartons of cigarettes over the years (approximately $35,000).
Next, don't quit college with one year to go! You will regret it.
Next, don't listen to the lawyer you paid for-he is a man and gave your ex-husband everything.
Next, when your ex-husband whines, don't accept his excuses. Think about the fact that although he says he doesn't have enough for support, he is secretly taking trips twice a year to go to New York City to see the plays. Stand Firm! It's for your children.
Thoughts to pass on from 18 yr old me: Don't judge everything by your life. Listen to other people's advice. Don't be a fuddy duddy. Live. Breathe. Be Cool. It's not true that if you don't practice you will forget it. It's like riding a bike!
