    I would not have chosen media in college, and perhaps tried harder in school - although it's not a matter regret.

    Also, I'd have tried to stay away from girls a little more as they seemed to hold me back, stop me enjoying myself with friends, etc. But those are immature regrets, fortunately I have few serious.

    Philippians 3:13

    I would not dwell on the past.

    My compeer, there is much value in schooling even if you do not accept some of the science (rather than scientific) lessons.

    I didn't say anything about "schooling".

    You are too feisty for my own good, I meant [public] schooling, I apologise for being so internal.

    No apology necessary.

    Me either. But I did still manage to beat my wife (in a bracket challenge...I don't actually beat my wife).

    Perhaps only because you won the challenge? It is all too hypothetical to condemn you.

    Maybe would have spent less time being sober . . . . Very overrated that!

    In seriousness though, I genuinely believe the mistakes and good things in our past make us what we are in the present . . . . I'm not perfect; but I am the best me I can be.
    Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants, and slide on the ice.

    I agree with ragTag. I wouldn't change a thing. There have been many times I wish I could have, but in the end I realize my life has made me who I am and right now my life is really good. I would never want to mess with that.
    I'm not a sinner, or preacher, all I have is slight of hand.

    Not a thing. Different choices would have meant never having my three beautiful children ... no other choice would have brought as much love or joy into my life.
    TRUST
    is a fragile thing.

    Easy to break, Easy to lose
    and one of the hardest things to
    ever get back.

    The one thing I would have wished was to have known my wife when she was younger. She was not happy, mostly from a move to a new state and school, and because her family and peers did not understand her. She's quite bright and very individualistic. I would have told her that better things were waiting for her, and that her children would be a source of joy and comfort for her.

    It would have been nice to earn more money, but I have enough, and I wouldn't trade any amount of money for the things I love about my life.

    I wish I had realized that messing around in the woods and river, learning about everything, was an honorable profession, not goofing off.
