That is 1,956% in 5 years. If I had invested $1,000 then I would have had $1,956,000 today, and that does not include the dividends I would have received on those shares. Although the capital gains rate of 30% would have taken a nice chunk of my earnings, but REALLY?!?!? Who Cares. TAKE MY $$$.
I'd tell younger you to take a few more math classes. But $19,560 would have still been a good return on a $1,000 investment.

Wow, nobody's gonna try to stop 9/11? I mean I'd be three, so I don't know if I could remember but it'd sure be worth a shot!

I'd borrow as much money as possible from my parents and grandfather and invest ALL of that money between Apple and a few other Tech stocks (I'd just keep it in Apple) because I'd have the historical stock prices for every year up until 2013. You'd be a Billionaire many times over and COULD DO WHATEVER YOU WANTED!!! Hell, I'm 37 now and I'd be retired and could donate as much time and energy into ANYTHING I wanted.
Buy gold and then sell a year ago.
I'd run away from myself without saying anything. I've seen enough movies to know that you can't change the future
Practice guitar about 10x more than I did.
Go back to school and stop going to church.
I would let myself know that I needed to get hired at woot in time to prevent the AA t-shirt debacle. And where to hide the bodies.

Nope, not worth the time or effort; and just even hinting that you know its going to happen you'd end up in guantanamo

They'd send you to a Navy base?
Go to college and dump the ahole boyfriend of the time...oh and read the book "the rules" about dating.
I think you need to check your math on that.
$1,000 would have amounted to 1,333 shares at $.75
1,333 shares at $14.67 gets you $19,560. Just a couple decimals off. If you went back and invested in Apple or Google, then you are talking serious money.
I'd tell myself to stop focusing so much on other people's opinions and what you don't have. Focus on what you do have and how awesome that is, rather than how much more awesome life would be if you were still friends with that one person or dating that other one.
And to get the Pepsi leather jacket. Would have been awesome.
Buy Apple at $4. I would be worth over 60 million now in stead of living in a refrigerator box. Or maybe both.
And spend more time with redheads.
I hear you!!!
...to hang on for two more years until I come into existence. =P
Switch to a business degree, invest heavily in internet stock before the internet bubble, then invest heavily in Google and, well, everything else, but pull it out before 2008.
Spend more time with redheads.
Get Mark Zuckerberg laid so he wouldn't create Facebook.
Don't smoke...everything you do when young comes back to get you later. No doubt. BTW, I would have been 40 if it was 20 yrs ago.
I bought Apple cheap, $25 or so. Sold it at $125 because I thought it had hit the top. Made some good $$$$ Heh. Nope.
Oh well, no regrets.
Take better care/be more focused on my health, and do the same for my family. Also, I would have recognized that building self-esteem and confidence is crucial to survive all of life's events, and would have stressed that for myself and my children as well.
To do better in school and not take my once hot body for granted
I would tell myself to marry someone else!
