    Playing with fire. When I was around 12 I got 2nd and 3rd degree burns on my leg. Safe to say I haven't done anything stupid since.

    That if you date someone, especially someone who was abused in the past, tread carefully, listen to your gut and pay attention to her actions. If not, you are going to get burned and end up in therapy.

    Oh, pretty much everything. The key is that I learned and didn't repeat many.

    You'll never get by on 'talent' alone. I wish my teachers and parents would have told me that I 'worked hard' when I was young, not that I was 'gifted and talented'. It took me until 24 to realize that success only comes to those who work their ***** off for it.

    And then when you reach the age of 30, you'll realize that many people get to the top of the corporate ladder based on who they know, and not much else.

    I learned that on an online dating site the description of "a few extra pounds" flat out means she's fat. Same goes for "I'm not a size two". Women LIE!

    GAP coverage is good..

    Bought a car at the end of Sept 2012. Thanksgiving night of the same year a drunk guy nailed it while parked on a street & somehow managed to drive off... So that was a fun holiday.
