The advice that I would give myself as a high school senior would be to take some time to think about who you are, and why you want to go where you want to go. I would tell myself that just drifting through life is no way to live, that you have to take action and not be passive, as much as that is part of my personality. I would say that I need to speak up for those who need to be spoken for, I would tell myself that I should maintain the relationships that I have better, that I should be thankful for their impact in my life. I would tell myself that the world is not about me, that I should stop being so narcissistic. The thing that I would have most benefited from though would be to say that I am immature, and I do not deserve the things I have so I should be grateful and be gracious with the people around me.
