    If you could go back three years, what advice would you give your three-years-ago self? You've come a long way since the winter of 2015 and will have had both successes and failures. What could you say to that person you were three years ago that would help you towards success more quickly and with less heartache? What errors would you be able to help your 2015 self avoid?

    I would tell my three-years-ago self to be more of a risk-taker. If you really want to achieve something, don't be afraid to take a risk. Don't think about being rejected or getting failed in the future. At least, you have tried it.

    That's interesting. I think that would be high on my list of priorities too. It's very easy to hide behind 'but what if it all goes wrong?' I think the question to ask is 'what's the worst that could happen?'

    Choose a different major, study more, don't date people you hate, make more friends.

    I was a bit troubled years ago from a lack of confidence, direction in life and focus. Drinking, smoking and wasting away was all I did but now I know I'm better and I can do better. Thank god for the future right?

    I would have told myself to save money. I could have been further ahead if that were what I was doing back then. But other than that, I wouldn't change anything.

    Write everything down. I have lost so many ideas that I could have continued to build on if I made more than a mental note. Now, I take a pocket journal and pen/pencil with me wherever I go. I write everything from story ideas to my grocery list. Because of this, I have been able to combine story ideas and expand on them. My memory has also improved. I always wish I had done this sooner. I also highly recommend this to everyone!
