Turning 18 seems like a major milestone when it happens, but despite the voting rights and "legal" status, you're pretty much a glorified babe in the woods. This pivotal time inspires a lot of nostalgia in the post-teen-set, so when Twitter asked, "What would you tell your 18-year-old self?" the sex, relationship, and life advice for #WhatIdTell18YearOldMe came pouring in.
While being 18 once meant it was time to get married and get to procreating (or go off to war), today it's more likely you're prepping for college, your first "adult" job, or maybe even changing the world. In the wise words of Britney, when you're not a girl, not yet a woman, things can be confusing no matter what you're doing, and some choices you make aren't necessarily the best ones.

Pointers such as: Don't date the guy from college who asked your roommate out the day he asked you out, screw your body hate and get in the ocean for once, and pay more attention to your friends that you think will be around forever — they won't.
