If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell \"it's the story of my life,\" what would you be talking about?
Would have,could have,should have.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Live on campus and then travel.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
