personally I regret NOT...

 

Having taken that ex to the prom.

Going back to get that one extra college credit.

Spening a little more time with Gramps while I still could.

Staying with that one girl who loved me.

Signing up up for that half year of sailing.

 

 

but the + is still way better than the -.

no tease..

I dont mean things like 'I regret not talking to more girls in highschool'

 

I mean specific things like

I regret not having gone along on that road trip to california with the model.

(but I did go)

 

or

I regret not buying that aol stock back in 1988, even though it was availble to me.

 

see the difference ?

The only things i regret were things that i regret not having done. And they all had to do with girls.

 

 

On another topic, I can barely even stand to have 1 person over at my house. if i had a party at my house I would be like a 60 year old housewife who had to had to host the cast of jackass and their 500 clones for 10 weeks.

hmmm, not realizing/having a cynical attitude every time a chick was interested in me.

meeting this one cool chick and letting it pass by.

having a serious convo w/ this one dope chick and letting it pass by.

 

i didnt let em pass by cause im pussy, but out of fear (if that makes sense).

To be perfectly honest, I have only a single true regret in my life, which is almost halfway a regret, since the decision has led me through crazy paths in my life...

 

 

I regret not learning to drive/getting my driver's licence when I was 16.

 

 

Pushing on 23, and still on the same boat. Cons: I feel like I missed one of the major critical independence points that give you the confidence to take matters into your own hands. I also deprived the only girl I've ever been truly in love with from the relationship she deserved, and got my heart broken for it. Pros: I've never had to drive. Ever. Not once have I found myself in the position where I say to myself "Damn, I wish I could drive" (except for the ex-girl case, and even then it was rare). This means that I've honed people skills to an extent where I don't have to worry about rides anywhere... I can convince someone to do it, or find a way around it. And If I can convince people to drive me anywhere, I can probably take that ability further when it comes to negotiating and convincing in other matters. It's made me more resourceful, quick-witted, and persuasive. Plus, I've never had to be the designated driver, which means I can always partake in the madness.

 

But I still regret not having done it earlier. Beer,

I regret writing graffiti. I'll never be able to give up. Takes up so much time of my life.

 

But then again it has brought much happiness to my life. So i dunno. It all equals out i guess.

strange ese..... like minds ?

 

I regret NOT staying at home last night.

Why couldn't I have just taken it easy.

There's not need to be drinking and dancing and flirting and singing on a Tuesday.

 

(but I'd regret it if I hadn't gone out)
