    Oh, God. Hard question, since I'd be a very different person now.

    1) I wish I'd tongued my meds.
    2) I wish I'd developed a fashion sense earlier
    3) I wish I could have taken that government sponsored job in high school. The employment would have done me way good.

    I've fucked up much bigger than that, but especially the past two years have had some long periods I wouldn't trade for anything, even though some of the concequences were kinda hellish.
    Let's do this thing.

    I wish I didn't get married when I did;
    I wish I went to college sooner;
    I wish I didn't remain unemployed for as long as I did those times I did...

    1) I wouldn't change much about my dating life... except who the dates were with!
    2) I'd listen to my parents even less than I did...
    3) I would of travelled more when I was younger, rather than buy lots of fancy electronics...

    1. I would have taken risks with my life (career, relationships, whatever) and not ignored my desires so much or done only the things I could "justify."
    2. I would have waited to get married.
    3. <undisclosed (sorry)>



    Bonus
    ... oh yeah... I would have bought Google stock when it came out and rode the Internet boom right before it went bust...

    1. Taken more math classes in college. Perhaps double major with a math or physics degree. (there is that little part of me that still wants to but it wouldn't help my career or making money, etc. Phooey)

    2. Been less terrified of the opposite sex when single.

    3. Try harder to understand how to make close friends.

    4. Oh, and I wouldn't have bought the Ecuadorian or Burmese harps which are both unplayable, but for some stupid reason I thought they would be useful to me.

    i would have changed the following:

    1. majored in more generic field such as business as this would have increased my freedom to move around more easily to where i want to be/live

    2. pushed for braces when i was still young. i am considering it now

    3. stopped the open-ended relationship with my high school sweetheart many years before it finally died

    She sold one of her kids, they used to have three.

    I got braces in law school. The old fashioned kind as my teeth were pretty bad.
