Well haha when i was a child i dreamt of being a doctor, but now i regret it. Well because people around me say that being a doctor takes atleast 10 years to graduate from college while other courses only take 3 to 5 years. I mean im tired i'm already in school for what ? 13 years? more or less 10 hours a day 5-6 times a week! it's tiring you know haha then you'll gonna add those 10 years to my life? Yeah yeah i know learning is important, but well im a quick learner _ and i understand everything our teacher says, though im lazy im one of the top rankings in our batch ^,...,^ how about you? your dream that you regret dreaming of :D share it here///

almost peaple also get a dream child. But if any do it when become an adult. Doctor, tearcher, businessman.... are all good. The important is that you try your best and develop yourself in your career. 10 years to become a doctor is not much as 80 years old in your life time.

studying for 10 more years, really it's tiring. since 1998 until now 5 to 6 times a day 10to 12 hours a day, really is tiring.

I don't really regret dreaming about anything. They're just dreams, right? :) If I really made them then I will surely regret doing so. Good for you, a born quick learner.

I always wanted to be a midwife when I was growing up, but I think that I was almost embarrassed of that fact and therefore never did anything about it. I now have one year left of a psychology degree, which I have enjoyed but don't think that I will be able to make a full time career out of. I don't regret having that dream really, but I regret not following it, as I know that I will have to spend a lot of money now if I want to get to the point of actually being able to follow that particular dream. I really want to do it, but just can't afford to be able to do so at this moment in time.

I know how you feel. I'm still a student in my senior high school years, I'm going to do my final exams next year which will determine what course I want to do in university. When I was a kid, I simply adored animals and I thought I could be a veterinarian. I was so headstrong and confident about it until I reached high school. Turns out you have to get a really high score and rank to get into this course and it's very competitive. So my dream was crushed but I have a new goal which seems more achievable for me. Most asian parents want their kids to be doctors, my grandpa said that he'll come to me for a check up. I simply smiled and shook my head, too bad it isn't going to happen.
