If I had the opportunity to tell a past version of myself one thing, it would be... to not have eaten that triple layer chili bean burrito before the final soccer game of my 6th grade year. Just kidding. I would tell myself to not give up writing stories no matter what anyone said. When I was younger, I was often teased for reading books and writing stories instead of playing sports like the other boys. Due to the teasing, I stopped writing stories for many years. If I could, I would tell myself to keep on writing and to follow my passion.
