I don't know, I think that a mistake is not to do something that is good that we regret later. Is there anything you really regret doing in your life?

Well, I regret studying something I was not genuinely interested in, instead of following my passion. Sure, I could go back to school now, but it is much more difficult if you are older and already used to having a good income, so I don't think it will happen.

p;uccagirl many women now go back to school I did at 54 and got my degree at age 56 as I had already done junior college, it was harder but not impossible at all. We are still smart in our fifties if we were smart in our t wenties and thirties.

Hi PuccaGirl, I think you should to come back little by little by studying it online, reading about it, inspiring your self. With this good income (how lucky you are, think for a moment) you can pay actually for these studies that are your passion. You can make a goal to achieve in 5, 10 years and actually became what you were supposed to because it is your dream. I was in another country so when I came back to mine I started to study again, everyone were at least 3 years younger, but most of them too much younger. I wanted it so bad that in the begining I felt bad, but guess what, there were women with 50 years and older in my class. They were trying so hard so why would I complaint about it? You'll see how great it is to go after your dream :D

When I started to skip class in high school. It started with being late for classes, then skipping subjects when I don't like the teacher. Then missing exams and well, everything just went downhill from there. I never did graduate from high school. :( But I'm trying to make up for that now, but it's still 8 years and i regret it still.

That's unfortunate. I also couldn't graduate in the past but not because of me, my parents took me to other country and it was hard. Now I'm graduated. Being away from school really helped to see how to study is fun. Webdesign, English, Blogging, making candles and many other things I've learned alone and won't stop :D

hi katie0 for me its the fact that I took a BA in English when I really wanted to get a BS in library science so I could work as a reference librarian. a BA in English does not helo job wise if you are not inclined to teach which I was not. I just wanted to have a better paying job in our library. but I have made the best of it since then, Now I am retired. I just did not hunt hardenough to get that BS.

The good thing I believe is going to be how this will affect your decisions in the present, like thinking about the future too.

i haven't really started a complicated life, i guess. but maybe the biggest mistake was not to pursue what i have wanted for a career. it was a mistake from my end... but i had to do what needs to be done. i needed a 4 year course - i chose that so i could graduate and find a job quicker than what i would be getting if i studied medicine. maybe timing was just bad that i did not have the chance to pursue my dream and instead opted for the second choice by force. Maybe because i did not think of myself first, that God will bless me for making the right choice in protecting and thinking about my family
