this one is wonderful. i wish i could have taken a walk with my younger self, but i would have ended up shaking me, saying, "cut that shit out!" and walking away, haha

Thanks, Maria-Elisa!

Things I would have said to my younger self:
1. Launder that jacket, 'cuz, buddy, it stinks.
2. Stop wearing clothes three sizes too big. This is the only time in your life when you'll actually be in decent shape.
3. Start drawing comics right now! Sure, they'll be awful, but you'll get better so much faster than by just thinking about drawing comics.

and, of course, the all-purpose:

4. Get'cher head outta yer ass!

Oh, man! I'm going to need to see actual photographs of this Joel.

Oddly, no photographs seem to exist of this time in my life. It's like my family considered this a time best forgotten.
