Take the scholarships and go to the votech, not college. You knew you were going to be a paramedic/firefighter as a career, so don't waste four years worth of scholarships/time. Also, pay attention to that shy girl who comments on your pictures on facebook. You'll marry her someday and you can avoid plenty of bad decisions if you pay attention to her sooner.

Peace corps or army - your choice. There are more religions out there than the one you were raised in - dismissing going into religion as an occupation based on a single one is narrow minded.

But... in the end. I cannot imagine a better life then the one I have now. There is some Hokey Country song "God blessed the broken road" that sums it up pretty well. Avoiding my mistakes would have allowed me to continue to be (more of) a narcissitic jerk and it is much more likely I would be in law than in religions. I'm hard enough to get along with now if I had not had major mistakes when I was younger I would probably be intolerable to all but the people who I was making money for - though I would be making them (and me) a lot of it I imagine.

by the time I was 18 I knew it all.

I was a homeless dropout - well no, I had found an apartment by then (after having been a homeless dropout) Nobody could tell me anything.

I don't think there is any one thing I could have told myself that would have covered enough - except maybe "YOU ARE DOING EVERYTHING WRONG" from things that were illegal/criminal to family and friends and priorities - everything wrong.

repairing the damage I did to my life and family as a teen has taken me to the present day. Lost oppurtunity will never be taken advantage of. I have heard many people say that they aren't ashamed of the things they did, because it made them who they are... well I am, and would ratehr be a better person, who didn't have to go through many of the things I did.

Despite how things look now, it does get better. Give it time and learn to love yourself.

Start saving for retirement instead of spending the money on parts for your car. The earlier you start saving, the more it compounds.

You seemed pretty damned awesome the day I met you. 10/10, would meet again.

You'll learn a lot of lessons chasing a passion, but you'll be left with a lot of non marketable skills from a career field you eventually get out of.
