I sound like a douchebag but there's nothing I regret enough to mention. A couple of drunk photos, stupidly making out with people, the usual. No major regrets, maybe because I think and overthink all my life choices before committing to anything.

Why all the depressing topics?

This is a tough question. I guess I just regret not being more dedicated to anything when I was younger. If I had really worked hard at piano or art or sport when I was younger (all things I enjoyed) I would be so different today. Even more casual stuff like watching anime or listening to music I wish I had been more passionate about when I was younger. Feels like I kind of wasted those years.

I'm not suppose to post some personal stuffs here but ok I'll answer but this will probably one of my biggest regret posting this.

Not know about my ugliness sooner, Not accepting my weakness and not understanding more about my self.
Always thinking there's nothing wrong with me and thinks that the world revolves around me...

Being In-denial and stupid thinking so high of my self and looked down upon others too much not knowing I'm much of garbage than they are.

I did this to the people not only my social life but also to my family.

ram, everyone does that. the thing is, what alot of people don't realise is that you do in fact have better qualities than some people, but they also have better qualities than you. where you fail, they might excel,and vice versa. no one person is better than anyone else because they all have a weakness to hide.

@ram: taking advice from the very young is just as good as taking advice from the very old. the old draw their wisdom from experience, while the young draw their wisdom from innocence. a none corrupted view of the world will give a more insightful perspective in the problem, but it means they have an inability to see it any other way.

There was a teacher that gave me a hard time in 7th grade, man, the guy despise me for some reason. He gave me several saturday schools for forgetting my homework one day. A detention would've been enough, but nah...... I regret that I didn't punch him in the face or at the very least scream into his face calling him every vulgar name under, and above the sun. Luckily, he got fired, so it all worked out in the end.

It is true that young people aren't always very smart, but she is right about one thing. In some situations, it actually is a good idea to get advice from inexperienced people. They're better able to think outside the box since they aren't as accustomed to doing it a certain "right" way.

Ok honestly this just sounds like you are trying to make yourself feel smarter than the adults in your life. Just my impression.

I regret not trying anything outside of my comfort zone when I was in my teens. I could have been way more comfotable learning to drive (an aunt allways tried to get me to drive her car but im chicken shit) or Just socializing with other people in large groups (got invited here and there with people but never went because I just didnt know them and was an akward turtle).

corastaur
05-11-2012, 02:17 PM
Hmm ok, very personal example:

I spent one summer as a camp counselor and it was after a particularly hard year at school. I had been questioning a lot of things regarding my future and was getting closer and closer to being depressed, which is never a good thing when you're also in charge of like 15-20 kids. It was a christian camp so every week there's a night where the kids can come and talk to their counselors about their own worries or stuff that's going on at home and we talk to them and pray for them. So after my campers and finished talking with me and had gone out I ended up having a breakdown of sorts, and one of my campers came back in randomly and came up to me and gave me a hug and prayed for me instead. Anyway what she ended up saying put my problems in perspective for me and helped me to not freak out anymore. It basically got me out of the hole I was digging for myself.

less personal examples are when kids, in their innocence, say something about your problem and you're like crap why didn't I think of that.
In general though, the less experienced helping out the experienced is easily seen in school related stuff. Its why it's a good idea to pair a student who is having a hard time understanding things with one of the best students to work on a problem set. The "expert" student is able to teach the non-expert, while at the same time increasing their understanding of the problem, and, when they come to a particularly difficult problem, the non-expert can often have an intuitive approach to the problem that the "expert" might not have thought of.

jubeh
05-11-2012, 02:28 PM
Are you convinced an adult couldn't do any of those things

corastaur
05-11-2012, 02:36 PM
No I'm not convinced. I guess what I'm saying is, provided the kid isn't just trying to prove they're smart, don't discount what a young person says just because they're young and "stupid."

Keep on topic or your off topic posts will be eligible as a greatest regret. And no off topic posts are not permitted because you will regret them later and be able to post that you regret your off topic posts.

I really regret going out with the first guy who said he liked me, back when I was 14. I had really poor self esteem so even though this guy was a massive dick and pretty ugly as well I went for it. It ended up being one of the worst decisions of my life and he messed up the entire rest of my highschool years as revenge when I broke up with him.

05-13-2012, 11:42 PM
I've probably wrote about this before, but it's something I've regretted dearly for years. In 6th grade was a nightmare, my classmates terrorized me everyday, attacked me, pushed me around, said the nastiest things about my family, one classmate in particular was a complete bitch. She had started a a fun little thing that consisted of me not being human that I was an 'it', fun stuff. Anyway, there were a few days when she had not been in school, she was with family attending her mother's funeral, when she came back, well, she was an even nastier bitch then, and something nastier still about my own mother, to which I responded "At least I had one." One of the few times in my life where I truly wished to hurt someone, no.... destroy them.

Well, years later... I think it may have been last year or the year before that, maybe a 2 before that I forget, I sent her a myspace message telling her I apologize. Wasn't much, and lately I've been thinking that the next time I see her, I should give her a real apology, at least one more sincere than a myspace apology.

butternut
05-14-2012, 12:47 AM
Wow, that is seriously a nice thing to do. And one of the hardest.

My biggest regret is not making enough use of the opportunities I've been presented with and simply living life away. But everytime i think about it, it's like there's no way i'd turn things around if I'd been given a second chance coz that's one of the characteristics that kinda defines me. If at all I do something differently, I'd be a totally different person and I'm comfortable with who I am now and what I'm pursuing in life now, and I don't think I'd have it any other way. Heck I think my goals and perspective on life itself would have been completely different. It's like these mistakes and failures I've made have in some way contributed in making me who I am now. So in a way, I don't think it's a real regret. It gets confusing sometimes.
I don't know if I even made sense, do tell if any of you gets it.

CypressDahlia
05-14-2012, 12:54 AM
Too much good has come out of my mistakes for me to regret anything. I sometimes think "maybe I would have done this differently", only to realize I would have to sacrifice something good that came out of that decision in return. I'm fine with how things are.

Mr_Liebe
05-14-2012, 12:58 AM
Eh, I did have the right, but really that didn't help me much when the bitch spread a rumor that I threatened a police detectives daughter ((Good thing I'm lucky enough that she wasn't a Judge's or Chiefs daughter, you know excactly what would've happened)) I was nearly arrested and expelled, although I think she spread more than just the threat rumor, possibly a rumor that I had a list (you know the kind), but luckily I was able to stay in school, but man.... I dropped out the next year, you know. After trying to get you expelled and arrested, what's next, getting some people together and having them jump you? Fuck.... I really do regret not punching anyone, it could've solved everything, I think.

butternut
05-14-2012, 12:59 AM
I'm yet to see if whatever comes out of last few months would be good enough for me to not even consider them as mistakes, but i'm optimistic in general, so guess i'd be happy.

Actually I made a major life decision as a result of all that I did NOT do. So that must be good enough to not really regret it.

@liebe couldn't you disprove it or something? If it was a rumor, wasn't it like her word against yours? (umm, just curious as to how things could turn that bad, ..)

Mr_Liebe
05-14-2012, 01:02 AM
Luckily, I think I'm still young enough to get what I need to have a good life, so out of all the things I regret, I can at least see the silver lining, so that's something.

She was a cheerleader, and I was the kid that Teachers would have a go at even. The fact that I wasn't expelled or arrested is probably evidence that God may exist, that's how surprised I was.

Sorry, seems I've derailed the thread.

One time when I was out with some people, well, I guess I had a cough or something was sick, and I had me a drink or two. I think 20 minutes or so after that I was starting to feel feverish, nauseous, nose was a bit drippy, and developed a cough if I recall right, man I was feeling terrible. I truly regret that.

butternut
05-14-2012, 02:24 AM
In hindsight, i don't regret anything because:
1. All decisions and actions, good or bad, have contributed to making me who I am today. (learning from mistakes, that kind of thing)
2. I wouldn't have known what the consequences are or how to handle a similar situation if I hadn't been through that.
3. They're just experiences - stories of my life.

I think people should follow this thinking. Makes life better and happier.

This may be pathetic, but after some reflecting, my greatest regret is not dancing with this girl at a dance when she asked me to. Yeah. I was too worried about looking silly or like an ass, but she had already seen me as both at other times, so ... She knew. I dunno. This thread has gotten me depressed. The aforementioned bothers me enough as it is, the other forumite's regrets seem a lot more regrettable than mine (some are also sort of sad), and that just makes me feel bad for having such an insignificant regret. :|

this is my recipe. it's really good, and you can customise it if you know how to cook C;

5 min chocolate cake

coffee mug
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips
splash vanilla or other flavoring - try peppermint or cinnamon

mix dry ingredients in the mug. add milk and oil. microwave for 3 mins(on high).
don't worry if it muffin tops, this is normal.

as for regrets, neglecting to practice my piano for two whole weeks. i couldn't figure out why i was feeling unhappy, then went and sat at the piano and started playing, and i realized i should play it more often cause the music is so therapeutic. seriously.

My regret is a little different from Bacons. I had a crush on a girl in 5th grade, and funny enough, it was the little bitch who lied about me sexually harassing her, getting me suspended. One night on.... hm, not sure might've been a spring dance, and it was at the local rec center, I had asked her if she wanted to dance, and she told me to wait five minutes. Yeah, I waited and waited, no good, I also regret that I wasn't bright enough to realize she wasn't ever going to dance with me, or maybe there was a time I was an optimist.

I remember back in HS, they were giving away free laptops in the lunchroom for some reason. My teacher recommended me to go snag one up, my pride got in the way, seeing as though I already had a laptop, and the ones being given away were quite old, mostly for kids who couldn't afford them. So I passed up on it.

Couple months later, we hit hard times, had to pawn my laptop, and I went without one for months. I just remember telling myself 'FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!'.

I was 'friends' with this one guy, at first it was cool, because he was basically my only buddy when I was in like 8th 9th grade, but apparently he was an asshole, a major one. I regret that I didn't see it at the time, because with all the things happening to me in that time, the last thing I needed was a toxic 'friendship'. Sadly I was friends with him for a few years... it was so bad that I really don't go out much around people anymore.

You have to relise what you did wrong to make sure it doesnt happen again. If you try not to have regrets you'll spend your whole life looking forward and when that one "i shouldve" moment happens itll be much worse

You've lead a charmed life if that's your greatest regret.

I can't remember any other regrets because I never hold grudges and I can't hardly remember what happened in great detail last week.

A grudge and a regret are two very fairly things ...

Mr_Liebe
05-28-2012, 02:53 PM
what is the difference between grudge and regret?

Bacon_Barbarian
05-28-2012, 02:59 PM
A grudge is when you resent someone and a regret is when you wish you had done something.

Mr_Liebe

Ah, really? Thank you, I understand now.

I guess what I mean to say is I just don't care enough about anything to regret it. I'm the type of person that looks ahead more than behind.

I wish I had that mentality. I always tell people to live without regrets, but I'm such a hypocrite whenever I say that.

how far along were u?

I was vested in for two years @ Ringling School of Art & Design when I began to suspect that my professors were putting me on a path to being a 'fine artist'. I freaked out & starting doing stupid stuff like purposely doing my figure studies with manga faces, using screen tones in drawing class, etc...3D design? I did nothing but argue the fact that I didn't think I should be forced to take a class where I wouldn't use anything that I learn.

Then I dropped out in the middle of my Sophmore year. And began the long, lone adventure of self education.

My greatest regret is that it took me over a decade to gain the skills that I want & finally get a job with them where that damn piece of paper could've opened the door for me after 4 years. Plus, I actually was learning stuff at college that I needed to know anyway.

Go figure...

Delphinus

what's wrong with being a fine artist anyway

Black_Shaggie
05-31-2012, 12:05 PM
Nothing's wrong with it. Actually I believe that art is art & there's really no difference between fine or graphic art other than style(s). It was my younger self that thought in those limited terms. My leaving school & having to figure out what art meant to me is something that I do not regret...it gave me a broader perspective. I do feel however, a degree helps you (make money) wether you choose to hang your work in galleries or use your skill for marketing & advertising though & that's what I regret.

I've never regretted pussying out. I've regretted not taking advantage of the situation at hand though. *shrug*

My greatest regret was to chose gym instead of Germany at my 2ndary school. Reason I did was that the school advisor said we'd get climbing there... it was a lie.

I don't know whether to be sad or to call bullshit. It's HoS after all.

I don't think saying you have aids is a very good joke, if it is one D:

GunZet
06-12-2012, 11:22 AM
Well, it -is- HoS we're talking about here. You never know.

My current ongoing regret is not getting my one required math class out the way earlier. Instead I'm probably gonna end up taking it way later when it's gonna be a pain in the ass since I suck at math.

Snooderflubbyguppy

i suck at math as well. i think its a pain in the butt.

You know it's your fault you won't concentrate. Seriously, you have the best math textomes ever.

Mr_Liebe
06-12-2012, 12:54 PM
I couldn't do the math at all, and the teacher wouldn't come over and explain it to me, which would've helped immensily. Seriously, with the teachers I had, I'm surprised I can type this well, have a decent vocabulary, and have this good of logic skills and shit.

So, is HoS an acknowledged fabricator of fraudulent stories, or what?

How very dare you! You'll hear from my lawyer.

I also regret not going to South Korea when I had the chance. Although I have heard from almost everyone I have ever met who has been there that its a very dull place. Regardless, it would have nice.

He could sue for libel, I think, but considering people doubt already the veracity of his claims, I don't think it'd stand well in court..
