    Default Something you regret (not) doing

    Is there anything you regret not doing. Maybe telling someone that you love them. Maybe sticking up for someone. Maybe going back to school. Maybe not buying yourself something that you deserve just because of the money or worried about what people might think.

    Me if I could do it all over again I would have taken my education more seriously. Im still in the process of going to school but damn it gets more and more difficult to go back when you get out for a while. I also regret not doing everything I could for my friend Lisa while she was sick. I thought I did but thinking back maybe i could have done more.

    Shoulda gone to NYU and gone into publishing. Even tho no one reads
    anymore. Like you, I was such a rebel in high school that I completely
    disengaged my last two years when I shoulda had SOME foresight, other
    than my grand plan to go to GIT in LA and become the next Eddie. I
    eventaully managed to get a BA, but to this day, I regret taking my
    public education for granted and not even soliciting any colleges upon
    graduation.

    I regret not taking high school and, especially college, more seriously. I regret many aspects of my adult life.

    I regret my career choice.

    I also regret never learning how to dance. The ladies love a guy that can dance.

    Should've took high school a little more seriously. I did graduate from college but my choices were a little limited.

    Learned to play guitar. (There is still time though!)

    I regret not taking seriously the nervous flirtations of a girl in high school, because I thought I could do better, frankly. Now she's a doctor and I realize that she was the only one who has ever geniunely liked me.

    I regret not seeing SRV at a 1,000-seater back in the day. I regret not visiting my now deceased grandparents at least once more than I did. I regret not doing more for my best friend who died in 1996 after a lengthy and valiant battle with cocaine. So forth and so on.....

    I regret:

    Hurting (emotionally) both of my ex-wives. They're both great women.

    Not learning to play guitar

    Giving up on radio.

    Becoming a truck driver.

    I don't regret:

    Giving up on radio

    Becoming a truck driver

    still loving my ex-wives (i'm a glutton for punishment)

    being a mama's boy

    My last two years in high school were a train wreck. I was too "busy" with either the band I was in, girls or a myriad of other diversions to give a damn. That led to other poor choices which I thought were the "best" at the time which never seemed to pan out in the long run.


    That, and not nailing every girl that gave me the opportunity...I was just too nice of a guy sometimes.

    I should have bought Walmart and Microsoft stock back in the 70s. And divorced my x wife about 14 yrs sooner than I did.

    Hmmm, I don't regret one thing. I've had a very happy life and I'm glad for everything I've ever went through that was hard (my mom's death, divorce) because it made me a stronger, wiser person. I wouldn't be the person that I am today without having those experiences.


    I do wish that I had made a better choice in the guy that I picked to be my first though.....I still hate that mf'r, but I don't regret the sex.

    I regret not sticking with a girlfriend I had in my mid twenties.

    Life has moved on but I still sometimes wonder if she would have been the best friend I ever could have wished for. But, I was like a kid and she wanted to do the whole family bit. Maybe it was the right choice ......

    i don't like to play the regret game but for the sake of the thread, I'd do school differently. I didn't want to go to a four year college right off the bat. I did it to impress my parents. I thought it would have been great to go to the local junior college and study audio engineering while getting my basics out of the way. That would have given me time to focus in on what my bachelor's degree would be. It also would have cost a ton less and I wouldn't strapped with all these defaulted student loans. I never did graduate because i was so miserable in school...i didn't fit into college anymore than when I was high school. I didn't know what to study, I kept taking classes that interested me in hopes that I'd get excited about something but I never did. Consequently I have a ton of hours that are absolutely worthless, they don't fit together in anyway to form a degree.

    So, if I had it to over again, I'd have NOT tried to live life for my parent's sake, I would have gone to San Jac, concentrated on my playing and then moved to a four-year if and when I had the interest and passion.

    I don't regret anything in my life. I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I had made different decisions back then, but then I look at what I have now, and I am glad for the experiences I have, both good and bad. Like Kimmie said, good and bad experiences molded me into the person I am today.

    I quit playing baseball. I have an uncle who was involved in sports and still calls me stupid up to now. It has been almost 20 years since I did. I sometimes think about "What if?" but I wouldn't be in the place I am in now with my family and such. Not a day goes by without thinking about it but I look at my family and that makes it better.
