What I Wish I Knew Then

Did you ever think about all of the things your wish you knew then but actually know now?  I don’t know if i would have lived my life any differently if I would have known some things that I know now.  What would you have liked to know when you were a kid or a teen that you have recently found out about?


  • When I was in grade school, I wish that I knew how expensive college would have been.  I would have saved all of my birthday money and Christmas money so I wouldn’t have to pay student loans back.
  • Too bad I found out that most of the guys in my hometown are cheaters.  Couldn’t they have come with a label so I wouldn’t have wasted my time?
  • It would have been great to know that all I needed was to read the text books in order to get good grades in high school.
  • Organization is the key to college.  I found that out in January of 2010.  I graduated in May 2010.
  • When you lose weight, you can’t eat whatever you want whenever you want.  I learned that 20 pounds later.
  • Your parents really are looking out for you when you are a teenager.  They are not the enemies like we think they are.
  • Spending money on dumb things is fun.  It just adds up in the end and then you kick yourself later.
  • Always sign an agreement when you create one verbally.
  • Time is the one thing you can give someone that is affordable.
  • Don’t believe everything you hear.  If you hear it twice… then you should start believing it.
  • Renting a one bedroom apartment in Los Angeles is $500 more than renting a 3 bedroom house in Virginia.
  • Listen to your elders just don’t start acting mature until you are over 20.
