If I could go back what's the point in giving just one piece of advice, I'd give myself a lengthy manual.
"You're a girl and you know it. Don't hide it so long that you miss the best time to transition!"
"Lol" does not mean "Lots of love ", so don't send it to your friend after he tells you his grandad died
Learn Spanish fluently
In the USA it is spoken by a large percentage of people (who should eventually learn English but easier said than done) and being bi-lingual opens one up to many more employment opportunities, for one thing. You can also work (or travel with ease) in Mexico, most of South America, all of Central America, several islands in the Caribbean and Spain.
Plus you will never get mocked or ripped off at that bodega again.
I'm joking, but what I meant was since I'm not Latina and can't speak Spanish, they might charge me more –if they didn't like white girls or thought I had $– and I'd be none the wiser. But, again, it was said in jest at the end of an otherwise earnest reply.
It would be non useful, as the jounger myself, unfortunately, never accepted good advices.......
stay away from ep
There's no going back.
