If you could go back and change something in your life- what would you change?

Well what would you change or keep the same?

I would have gone to a different college than the one I have been going to. Biggest mistake of my life.

well I'm not old enough to have big regrets yet but I'd have to say that I would have been good in H.S. so that I could've stayed instead of getting home schooling.

However I wouldn't have changed making fun of my math teacher.

well...i get the feeling this is the kind of answer a lot of people give....but, i wouldn't change anything. there are lots of things i'd like to change, opportunities i missed or bad experiences i wish i could erase. but i always think that if you start looking back and wishing you had done something differently, then it becomes too easy to get caught up in the past and into those feelings that "if only i'd..." or "think where i'd be now if...".
and from that it's too easy to stop living for the life that's ahead of you instead of the life you've already lived. it's too easy to think that your future won't be what you want because your past wasn't what you want. and we have to believe that we never know what's around the corner and we should live our lives in anticipation of that rather than in thinking about how it could have been.

that said, i'd like to change today so i didn't fall down and spend my afternoon at the hospital instead of taking an exam which i'll now have to re-take in my summer vacation and i'd like to regain the ability to type with both hands because this post has taken me about half an hour to type!

Not really, I'm pretty happy with my life.

Although I kind of regret letting go of Bono's arm over a year ago.

Now my story seems nothing compared to yours...I just regret never lining up for the Heart at any of the 4 shows I went to last year...especially the one for Vegas..with Eddie Vedder there and all...grrr..
Missed opportunities...
But I hope you are okay...

I might have gone to college. Except that I hate school. I hate studying. I hate lectures. I hate early classes. I sucked at school. And even after 4 years I still wouldn't have known what to major in, or what I wanted to be when I grew up. I mean, it's now 20 years later and I STILL don't know!!!

I also wish I would have been more into music and learned some type of instrument (guitar? piano) and a foreign language too...

Well... I can't think of anything I would change. Wow, I really can't. Good or bad, all that I have done has made me me.

*Perhaps I wish I had stayed backstage with my friend Michelle at London 3, because they met Larry after I left. Shit.
*And if I had had the ability to make Bono turn around that night outside the Clarence I would have done that. But instead we got to stare at his back for a couple minutes while he was three feet away signing other people's autographs. Ugh
But these are all pretty trivial things.
