PostSubject: Thread of Regrets   Thu Sep 12, 2013 4:17 pm

Have you ever looked back on something irl and realized you chose the wrong course of action, but couldn't have possibly known it at the time? Here's where you post those derp moments.

For me, it would have to be at Space Camp. Back in the day I was extremely uptight and took everything extremely personally (still do, but I try to keep it in check where I can), so I didn't take too kindly to my entire group of 'bunkbuddies' bestowing upon me the splendidly eloquent nickname of 'PopTart' when I got pissed off by a machine giving me a bundle of mints when I ordered, you guessed it, a Poptart. I was hungry, okay? And mints have literally no calories. The next day I insisted upon them calling me 'Epsilon' for some reason only 6th grader me would understand.

To this day I wish I'd just have gone along with the joke.

Well yea that is sort of you Razz,

What would I regret ? Hard to tell, I haven't done too much to regret something that hard ... You always have some moments you feel "oh shame I didn’t do it" but you don't really care that much to actually hope and go back there and do something.

However right now I am about to do something I might end up regretting and that is going to that army program.

A standard course of service for a soldier would be 3 years for men and 2 years for women. Basically the social part is kind of important there as it increases morale and stuff, you go in to fight for some ideology or your family back at the rear, however when the fight starts all these noble thoughts disappear and only your and your comrades' survival matters. That is why most units allow friends to be recruited together and in most units they get quite strong bonds in the team, especially in the navy. When they are done with their 3 years most soldiers go together with their friends on a big journey around the world somewhere, often spending up to a year abroad in different places together with their friends which sounds like a lot of fun. Finally they return from their trip and go study in universities and such.

My course of service differs by a lot: Instead of going to the army now I will study for my first degree, that would be 4 years, by that time most of my classmates will be already back from their big trip. After that I will serve an overall of 6 years, 3 years of my standard mandatory service and 3 more years under contract that I sign before I start all of that, that is a lot of years in the military, however by the end of it you have a degree partially paid by the military and 100% chance to find a good job because you worked with really high tech during your service.

I guess if I regret that choice would depend on what kind of people I will meet during that period, I go there with some ppl I know but I think they might be taken earlier. See my point is that with all the respect to the need to work and the "serious things in life" I believe it is important to spend these early years well and in good company because later you won't have time for it left. If stuff won't go well during that period I will be stuck in that bad place for 10 years (and prob won't have that awesome world trip either Sad) and that is a big risk.

I made fun of some annoying girl in my 5th grade class, I apologized later but I still feel sort of bad about it. And then there are the girls who, now that I think about it, were probably into me, but I would generally push away because muh impossibly high standards and insecurity, or I would just go full aspbergers and freak them out.

I know where you're coming from, I myself try to act 'cool' around girls that are nice just not to seem desperate and it always backfires.

Well feel good bout that, I for the matter never actually got to the stage of playing cool wit the girls, for some reason I feel indifferent to most of the ones I met and I start to worry actually Im missing something out ...

For the funny guy who's probably just about to shout it Im not gay.

Now I'm laid back enough to just be friends, but I still have no idea how I'll ever ask a girl to marry me without doing something retarded, hopefully I'll become more socially adept after college.

Lets see... What do I regret?


Not much, except maybe choosing Megaman and Spyro as my favourite video game series, fuck capcom and activision. Well, Spyro is lost but Mighty no 9 might make capcom make ZX 3, or legends 3.


But asides from matters over which I have no control, I probably regret never learning to play the guitar, that would have been awesome.

Okay, I'll talk. In 3rd grade I cheated on my history exam, in 4th grade I stole my Uncle Max's toupee and glued it on my face when I was Moses in the school play, in 5th grade I threw my sister Edie down the stairs and blamed it on my dog. When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I went nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out.

But the worst thing I've ever done, I mixed a pot of fake puke at home, and then I went to this movie theater and hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony, And then I made a noise like this, hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience, and then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

You think this is addicting? Try getting into Chans, it literally took 10 consecutive trap or gore threads to get me to leave.

Agreed.
Thanks to this place my grades last year dropped by 20%.

Also I pretty much regret my personality in grades 3 to 8. I was so pathetic you don't even know.
