Emmy did a very interesting writing exercise on her blog. She wrote a letter to the eighteen year old version of herself. She gave herself good advice, said what to avoid, and what to do differently. Some things were general, some very specific. I wondered what I would tell myself so I decided to give it a try.
Dear 18 Year Old Me,
1. When you're competing in the quizzing championships, go ahead and ring in on the very last question. You know the answer. Don't let your teammate beat you do it because he will freeze up, he won't know the answer, and your team will lose the championship.
That's all. Enjoy life.
