    You could redo one thing in your life.

    What would it it be, and how would you redo it?

    Dunno if I could pick one...I can list a few actually. I guess number one is I would have tried harder in school, and done more extra-curricular activities.

    I'd have got an SLR earlier in my life!

    Having said that, they are a hell of a lot cheaper now than when I was a lad! :lol:

    I realised I didn't do one.

    I regret giving up swimming that I had done since I was 5 till maybe 13 and was good at.

    I'd redo my relationship with Ari...I'd either have not started it to begin with, or I would have done a lot of things differently.


    *sigh*

    I would go back and stop a girl I know from ending up pregnant at 20. I'd have gotten her to move in with me instead of leaving her in the hell that was her mothers home.

    There are a lot of things I would have done differently. For starters, I would have listened more when an adult said "you are going to regret that when you get older" or "you wont think like that when you are older". How I wish that could sink into the minds of youth, but I guess it really is true when "live and learn" is quoted. Other things that I would go back and change are more personal, but there are a few.

    I'd definitely not touch cigarettes... I''d been smoking for sooo long.. .too long... now it's been a year and a month since I haven't touched them... and I'm happy now... but whenever I go to a pub and feel the smoke in the air and the atmospheare... ehhh it's hard.. even after a year...

    Oh yeah...smoking. That was stupid. I would say drugs too, but I had a lot of fun doing them, and they made me the person i am today. The experiences have defined a period of self discovery and all that psycho babble. I'm pretty happy with the fact that I did drugs. As stupid as that sounds. Meh. To each their own. I probably won't be saying that when I'm half retarded by the time I'm 40 or something.
