What can i do to make my "future self" proud of me?

so today m turning 18. I think it seems crazy how fast time pass by, but u know we gotta survive this life. Turning 18 finally I can have my driving license which I dreamt of my whole life. BINGO
But I also wanna do something that my future self will thank me for, I wanna be a productive and successful. But the question how do I start?

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Make a good list of your interests and or things you may not care for but if you are really good at it, then put them on the list. Make a pact with yourself that no matter what, come hell or high water you will search for a job. At first you might take any job you can get but then after awhile find something you are passionate about. Welder, a plumber, an architect, electrician, computer engineering g, so many things to investigate and seek out something you can have fun doing, plus get paid for it. I worked as a mover for the last 10 years I could work. It was hard work sometimes but I loved it. Getting paid to stay in shape. The tips usually pretty good, plus people moving usually need to downsize either moving out of a house or into a smaller new house. I have been given - mountain bike, entertainment center, and tables, metal storage racks, beds, dressers. It's a great way to furnish a house.

  • Just try not to do anything you will later regret or be embarrassed of. Things like -

    Do not get in trouble with the law.
    Do not get into debt for silly things like credit cards.
    Stay off drugs, alcohol, and nicotine.
    Do not get married nor pregnant til you are truly ready.
    Do not sign up for the damn military.
    Don't have weird sexual encounters.

    Shoot, I could go on but we each have to make our own mistakes. If you can keep them to a minimum, that would be something to be proud of.

  • Personally if I had it to do over.
    I wouldnt seek the approval of my peers.
    I wouldnt struggle to be popular or be a part of the in crowd.
    I wouldnt worry about being with the cute guy.
    Id put that on hold on focus on $.

    • OP's not one day underage. It's their birthday today, so they are 18. I know you were just making a joke, but the joke doesn't work.

      • He said "Today I'm turning" that is in future tense mate. He didn't say "today I turned 18" And I replied to this post very quickly after it was up.
