right now I'm contemplating about this choice that I've chosen in school, and I hope that it won't turn out to be the worst decision I've ever made. But my question is what's the worst decision that you think you've made in life? So, c'mon, what is it?

It's school related, like yours. Last year, I decided to pick up Media Studies, simply on the basis of ‘filming stuff looks cool’. Needless to say, big mistake. Stress, devaluing houses, breaking school equipment, wasting a lot of time and money and destroying relationships was the name of the game.

Although it was the easiest A I got, EVER.

But remember, it's better to regret a decision made than to regret not making a decision at all.

Also school related. When I finnished High School I decided to go to Law School.

Must of my teachers and family keeped telling me that I could be a great lawyer and that should study Laws.

They didn't force me, they gave me an advice and I just followed without giving second thoughts.

Needless to say, I didn't fitted at all in a Law School enviroment.

Starting a webcomic.
you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

The worst…. I guess taking the red pill instead of the blue pill.

Applying to veterinary school. (I was rejected. Didn't even get an interview.) $400 and countless hours wasted. A semester lost that could have gone toward my masters degree and gotten me out of graduate school before we plunged into an impossible recession, dooming me to years upon years of unemployment and countless more rejections. – On the other hand, it did teach me how to deal with rejection. God knows that's a skill that has come in handy.

Also, never telling my high school crush how I felt about him, setting a precedent of hopeless shyness around guys.

Not realizing i was gay in time to date ‘A’. I dunno if she naturally had horrible taste in women or what, but she had the hots for me and she was really reallly hot too(like i'll never get anybody that hot now, since all the lesbians at my school are orcs/goblins)

I've pretty much just gone with the flow of life, take it or leave it.

Probably when my doctor asked me if I would be willing to be voluntarily castrated and I wasn't listening so I said yes.

This isn't too devastating but I'd say mine would probably be asking a guy to formal that I barely knew because I really wanted to go and I had just dumped my boyfriend. I get embarrassed just thinking about it.

Asking my ex-fiance to get engaged just before my freshman year in college. In retrospective, I knew even then that I was way too young, but I was also clinically braindead like most teenage guys.

stopping to draw seriously (as opposed to doodling on margins which I still did) for couple of years. I'd be years ahead now compared to where I am.

Well, I wasted PLENTY of time on girls that proved to be worthless.

But all in all, I would have never, ever, ever made any Sonic fan-characters if I knew what I did now.

Although, I suppose, if I would've started drawing anime, like I was going to, I'd be one of those people that sits in their basement all day, watching anime, fapping to anime, and being like, “Aww kawaaiii!!! I'm gonna go to Japan and become a professional mangaka and get married to a japanese woman!”

Thankfully, that is now changed to a canadian woman.

Playing I Wanna Be The Guy. I kept going and going despite how many times I cried and raged, and spent the time trying to get through one part rather than studying and working on Long-term projects.

And buying a new computer from Dell. I swear they're specifically manufactured to self-destruct right after the warrenty expires.

Applying at Wal-Mart. I'm almost ashamed to say that that didn't pop into my head two seconds before I even read this post, but… here it is.

It's a tie between letting go of possibly one of the most perfect-for-me girls I ever knew in my younger years or not intervening when my neighbor got murdered while everyone watched. Stuff haunts a man.

I have a big one.

Back when I was living in London, my future wife got a job in Denmark (we were dating at the time and had only been together for few months at the time). She wanted me to go as well. I said I didn't want to move there but I promised I would visit her regularly. Anyways, she decided not to take the job and because of this, she's never been able to pursue a job that fits her education.

It was her decision not to take it but I hate myself so much for being such a mayor factor in her decision.
Those were my two cents.

Yeah I don't really have any either. I mean sure, there are those moments where I'm like “Oh, shit, I should of …” but those I forget the day after so… not really a great regret.

I am only 15 so I guess I shouldn't regret anything… yet.

Lol, It played out like a typical teen drama. The guy was really cold about it and now I have to see him every time I go to a dance at their school. Thinking about it now, that really wasn't as bad as I made it out to be in my mind. *Poot*

*Obnxious gasp* SAMEZIES! All the stuff that's even mildly regrettable just doesn't seem worth the effort!

Hm… real stuff to regret… Sometimes I regret wasting my time in past relationships. I'd continue to try to rekindle old feelings long after I realized I no longer liked the guy. I mainly stayed in them because of guilt, but I don't think it's really effected me in a negative way. I also regret at times leaving my best friend because she got into bulimia and cutting and got EXTREMELY obsessed with her boyfriend, but thinking about it now that's about the only time I wasn't there for her. I tried to help as much as I could but I began to doubt she'd even think about doing the same for me.

So yeah, my life has been too short and uneventful to have any regrets. :P
