    Time Machine Advice:
    - As much as it feels like you're committing to something for the rest of your life the first time you make a decision, you're not. And it's really important to make sure that you're always learning and make sure that you're always trying to be as happy as you can and be in situations that are going to propel you forward. As long as you're being aware of that, you'll end up in a fantastic place.

    - Always be open-minded about meeting new people, and even if you're putting yourself in a seemingly uncomfortable situation at the time - or if it's something you really don't want to do - it's those opportunities when you put yourself out there that you put yourself out there and meet new people
    or have interesting conversations that spark new ideas or can spark introductions to more amazing people. Just opening your eyes to what's out there.
