They're not fun to deal with. I know from playing Oregon Trail as a child.

That game was so anticlimactic.

Re: Do You Have Any Regrets In Life?

I have a hard time admitting this, but I got married too early. I don't regret who I'm married to, but just that I tied the knot far too early.

I was 21, had just graduated college and was getting ready to move out of SoCal for the first time in my life to make less than $30,000 chasing my dream. Basically I was scared and worried I would be lonely, so I wanted some security.

In the end after numerous culture shocks I adjusted nicely. Now I'm one of the most independent people you'll ever meet. I wish I would've had more alone time to explore and deal with life in various forms without consulting my partner.

That's one thing I would recommend to some of you that are born, raised, and will die in the same region. Don't be afraid to move away and try new experiences and be a complete stranger in a town. If it doesn't work out you can always move back. I eventually did move back to SoCal almost 12 years later. Not because it didn't work out, but mainly I wanted to spend some time with my family.

Re: Do You Have Any Regrets In Life?

I see a lot of dropping out of college on here. I wish I would've waited after HS to start college. I could have easily started a lawn maintenance/landscaping business (my current business) at age 18 and worked for a few years, bought a house, and then decided to go to school or not. Instead I tried to keep up with my peer group at the time who had family financial resources that were unavailable to me. I borrowed a lot of money to go to LSU football/basketball games and work out in a nice gym. I knew I had the brains for college, but nothing in my high school experience told me I had the work ethic. Only 22 hours left toward my degree, but I won't go back until I take a substantial chunk out of my student loans.

Since life is always moving forward if you sit in your regret you are essentially moving backwards. The journey is always right now and its never to late to make it up to yourself.

18 year olds usually have no clue wtf they want in life. I had a scholarship so I took for college, but if I was to advise any kid that was just graduating and going because he thinks he has to I would say take two years of general classes at JC first. The credits transfer and you save money. You drop out at least you aren't taking loans with it.

I see that happen with so many people in Wisconsin. I'm hoping at some point I'll move out of the state just for the life experience. I wouldn't mind ending up in Seattle or Portland at some point.

Seattle has always sounded miserable to me personally.

Re: Do You Have Any Regrets In Life?

Good music scene, exciting football team in the Seahawks, getting the Sonics back, and weed is legal. No complaints from me. If anything, Seattle is making it harder for me not to move there.

I just couldn't deal with the weather there honestly. Granted this is coming from someone who has spent his entire life in L.A. Orlando, and Atlanta.

Re: Do You Have Any Regrets In Life?

Yeah the weather would be a refreshing change for me. Granted summers are nice here, but I've also spent the last couple of weeks with near or sub zero temperatures. Seattle won't get that cold.

It's easier to do it when you're young. Are you working yet?

Working, but I'm not married to the job. Nothing I would have trouble leaving behind if a better opportunity came about.
