You don't always have to wait. Sometimes you can have it both ways. It may just take a little extra work and determination with some compromise thrown in to get what you want. Sometimes if you wait there will be time to follow your dreams later, but don't wait too long. Run down your dreams, even if you have to chase them in bits and pieces, a little at a time. Maybe your dreams will change and maybe not, but always keep a dream in your heart.
What she says to her almost twice as old self:
The things that caused you to wait were worth it, even if waiting was not as necessary as you thought. It is late, but it is never too late. What will you do today? How will you start to follow your dreams? Well then, start.

What she would say to her 21-year-old self:
Sometimes she even follows her own advice. As of today, she is a college student. Junior college, part time only for now. Baby steps but steps forward nonetheless. That particular wait is over. And, to her utter amazement, she somehow tested into College Algebra. Will wonders never cease?
