study more math idiot !
My 16 year old self to my 46 year old self:
"You're still alive? Hmm.. I didn't think we'd make it out of our 20s. Cool."
"And you do what for a living? Wow. Ok. How'd that come about?"
My 16 year old self would definitely not talk to my present self (over 50 and in law enforcement). I'd take one look and head the other way.
'Lighten up, old man.'
Hey, old man! More exercise, fewer cheeseburgers.
My 16yo self would be fascinated to see the future, and I hope would have the sense to not start telling my 43 years in the future self stuff I'd previously learned and already knew.
So if at 16 I'd met my future self, I would tell me to tell me what I would do differently if I had the chance to see the future.
What a ripe moment...
Congrats, you finally quit smoking. Now loose the beer gut.
Practice the basics, learn all your inversions and arpeggios, don’t waste time getting high, excercise every day, and always be nice to people.
Here’s all the money I have, buy the following stocks when they become available.
That’s my current self talking to me at 16. Sorry I read the title backwards.
My 16 year old self wouldn't be telling me (the 59 year old self) much of anything.
I believe this to be true.
But he would be asking a million questions!!
Drinking Everclear and Grape Nehi on New Years Eve is nowhere as cool as you think it will be.
"So I guess that whole thing about how everyone eventually finds their way in life doesn't alway hold true, huh?"
"Are you telling me that you still don't know the 25 or 6 to 4 solo?! WTF have you been doing?!"
I was pretty much an idiot at 16. Any advice my 16-year-old self would have would be bad advice.
My 16 year old self could not tell my 67 year old self anything of value.
What did you do with my hair?
But what would my present self tell my 16-year-old self?
"Do not drink alcohol. Ever. Your life will be better for it. And if you take the money that you would spend on alcohol and buy Apple stock, you'll be a multi-millionaire sooner than you think."
My 16 year old self was very conservative. That was 1966, a year before I started college and had my eyes opened. At 16 I thought I knew a lot, but in reality I didn't understand much. Knowledge without understanding is pretty limiting. There's one thing I knew at 16. I wish I would have followed my dream then. At 16, I wanted to go to college and major in engineering. My guidance counselor told me my math skills were not good enough. Major in a "soft science" like biology so I did. I even went for a masters degree but I didn't change my career path to engineering until my early 40's. I'm 68 now. I've designed laser microscopes and have the regulatory filings to prove it. Not bad for a kid who couldn't do math. I never could have imagined then the life I'd lead. I never would have imagined the world travel. I never would have imagined that my oldest son would follow me into bio and optical engineering. This is a curious thread. Our 16 year old selves can't tell us anything now. I'm very happy with how my life turned out but I wish I would have pushed the envelope a little harder back then. I wish I would have studied harder too.
16 yr old me to almost 55 yr old me :
“Get the f**k outta my way !”
Almost 55 yr old me to 16 yr old me :
“Ge the f**k outta my way !”
Same as it ever was...
