40 is the new 20

My dearest friend F is turning 20 this month.

To commemorate the momentous occasion, I asked F to impart some wisdom acquired throughout the 20 or so years she's roamed Planet Earth with the following question:

What's something you know now that you didn't know when you were 18 years old? 

This is her provocative reply:
1.       That I DO need math and algebra skills.
2.       I'm the only one who can define my success.
3.       To  trust my instincts more.
4.       I am my own advocate.
5.       Being "in-love" means needing to use my brain more, then see #3.
6.       The word "no" is ok.
7.       I may never know what I want to do when I grow up, and I'm fine with it.
8.       Multi-tasking is overrated.
9.       Well-placed three-point lighting is the basis of a good screen image.
Spoken like a true Radio and Television grad.

In case I haven't mentioned it yet, you're my style guru.  I live vicariously through you.  And, most importantly, you have been a continuous source of inspiration.
