    If you could go back and give your seventeen-year-old self one piece of advice what would it be?

    Write a letter to Doc telling him to wear a bullet-proof vest.

    1. Bet the house that Kansas wins the 2008 national championship. Then get out of journalism.

    2. Take that one spontaneous trip that you always wanted to but never did.

    Start working and saving money now. Heck, just learn about basic personal finances now.

    Take every computer class you can find.

    Forget French. Learn Spanish and Russian.

    Don't take it to seriously, and do what you love.

    Though your best friend's sister is gorgeous, don't date her. It'll be awkward after that until about your mid-20s.

    Loosen up. Stop being so damn shy.

    Push yourself to be your absolute best. You don't want to be sitting on your ass at age 25 figuring out how the hell you're gonna pay the rent.
