I'm 20. There are a few things I've learnt in the last few years that could have been really valuable had I learnt them earlier. What have you learnt since you were 20 that would have been valuable then?
This isn't a specific problem that needs answering, but a more general question seeking 'life lesson' kind of things.
About me- 20, at university, will graduate in two years with majors in Geology (which I'm ok at and will get me a job) and English (which I love but wont get me a job). I'm two years into a long distance relationship, and there's no end in sight (to the distance or to the relationship). So: what should I know? What's something you come to learn only after more than two decades on this little planet? What would you tell yourself if you could speak to 20-year-old you?
