HDQ - Hump Day Question

What is the one thing in your life that you have done that you regretted?

Mine would either be leaving a friend's wedding reception back in '97 to get some nookie from THE biggest tormentor of me in Jr. High as some sort of crazed, stupid, ridiculous "validation" that I had really changed from the non-entity I felt like back then to someone this guy was hot for: I ended up losing one of my dearest and best friends over that one b/c more stuff went on than just that but that is something that will not ever go past these lips to the general audience,
Giving up my virginity just b/c "every one else was doing it" and, considering I was 18, I was literally the last one in my rather extensive group of friends that I hung with at the time that was still a virgin. It was a stupid reason and one that I deeply regret.

Your turn. What is your biggest regret?

Not going to college.

When I was young, I thought I wanted to be one thing.. and it didn't require college.. and never worked out.

Oh well...

Lots of regrets but I have to go along with Dave and say I wish I had taken my mother's advice and finished college (I return now and I am old and gray...) but also (downer alert) I wish I had taken a lock of hair from my hubby when he died and was cremated. To DESPERADOS at the time to even think of it. :(

my biggest regret today would not be leaving you a "thank you" for your sweet post on Bill's blog. Indeed, he is a rich man, not only by having me in his life, his family, but by having friends like you! Everyone needs a pinic basket of people in their lives to make it complete! and of course...a few pesky ants!
Oh, love your receipes! I promise...we will make them soon! Again, thanks! ~Maryan

Ohhhhhhhh, no you don't. Not in cyberspace. Not even incognito.

You'll just have to use your imagination.

I have 2. 1: Not taking a job I was offered at a school specifically geared toward second language learners. It woulld've given me the "foot in the door" so to speak. 2: Letting too much time stop me from reconnecting with an old friend. In 2003 it became too late. She died.

I've gotten to the point in my life that I can look at most of my mistakes and see how I've learned and become better from them. Yeah, I'm perfect, aren't you? Snort. But honestly, I think that most of my mistakes have been experiences that I've really used to grow and become stronger.

That being said, I honestly and truly regret this Thanksgiving where I got drunk and had meaningless sex with a friend. It wasn't even good meaningless sex. It was just a stupid thing and wrong, and I regret it.

As far as what I've learned from it... never let a guy mix your drinks at a party. ;)

Great blog, Nic, and thanks for calling my writing an auto-buy! Maybe someday I'll actually have something published so people CAN buy it, LOL!

Bill said...

Nic - I can honestly say I don't have regrets, I have things I wouldn't do again (like enlisting), but no regrets. I believe that each and every thing I've done, brought me to the spot I'm in today. I may not live in 'perfect', it's not that bad a spot!!

I am now old enough to realize what I am now is the sum of all that came before. And even though I have had more than my share of pain and heartbreak, and made my share of mistakes, since I am very happy with my life now.... I have NO regrets.
