I’ve really thought a lot about this.
And really, there’s not many things in my life that I regret doing. I think the saying is true, “You’ll regret what you DIDN’T do, rather than what you did.”
And if I could change one decision, it would be my choice to stay in this state after graduation. Since I moved 14 hours from home right after high school, it wasn’t like I hadn’t done it before.
I remember applying to jobs all over the country because I wanted to move…but I don’t really think I gave it a good try. And then when the job I have now came along, I took it, and here I am…still.
I know I am still young, and I don’t have any REAL attachment here, and I don’t know, maybe soon I can gather up the courage to pack my bags and really shake things up!
I don’t know that I have one specific decision that I regret, but in general I regret never sticking with SOMETHING.
I have dabbled in a lot of different hobbies: gymnastics, basketball, music, tennis, acting, writing, running, etc… so I’m “okay” at all of those things, but I really wish I would have stuck with something when I was younger so I could be like really fucking awesome at it now. It would be even more awesome if I would have stuck with something that I could have made a career out of, because now I’m an accountant and it’s not fun and really sucks.
I keep telling myself that I’ll start writing songs on the piano again and things like that. But what single parent (to one puppy) who has a full time job has time for that? Sigh.
