    I dunno. At one point in my life I wish I had done certain things differently but now that I think about it, everything that I've done has been for a purpose. For example, I started drawing consistently when I was 22( I'm 24 now) and initially when I had started, I seen a lot of people my age who were miles ahead because while I dedicated my teenage and early adult years to sports they dedicated to art. But then again, when I was younger my interest was sports not art. So, it wouldn't have made any sense, to tell my younger self to behave differently because by doing so I would have not been following my heart. I think every experience in my life, whether it's been positive or negative, has been an opportunity for me to learn and grow so I don't regret it.

    Sort of along the same lines as Moe, except art was my interest. I would have told myself not to worry about a career. I would have reassured myself that using the time I had to experiment, study and enjoy art was okay. A career would come later.

    A career did come, and now I'm catching up.

    I'd tell myself to buy up all the old games and minitures I could afford.( so I can add them to my collection now) ... I think I missed the point =p

    I would tell younger me to chill. Because of the way I treated art and was stressing over it I didn't progress much and almost stopped doing it completely.
