Sometimes I think if I could go back to, say, junior high, knowing what I know now, I could do much better. I'd know what mistakes to avoid, I'd know what was really important. Then again, everything would probably be different and I'd make all different mistakes and do all different stupid things.
My childhood and adolescence were not especially pleasant. I didn't enjoy childhood like people tell me I was supposed to. I wouldn't choose to do that again if it was going to be like that again.
