You have the chance to go back in time 10 years and tell yourself 3 things. What do you say?
1. The book thing isn't going to work out right now. Please try to stop believing it will, because it's going to make you really miserable when it doesn't. Someday people will appreciate your writing. You just might not get paid for it.
2. GET OUT OF TRAVEL. NOW!
3. It's not all about you. (But I wouldn't have believed it then, because I barely believe it now.)
