If you could change one thing in your past what would it be. Lets suppose that if you change it the major things in your current life would not change, like your spouce, your kids, etc. For me I would change taking a class in high school. In high school I took field biology when I should have taken physics, and that would have helped me in college.

I would probably not join student activist groups. back in college i joined a student activist group and i got so involved in it that my grades dropped. and truthfully, thinking about it right now, i didn't even understand half of what they were fighting for. it was just the 'IN' thing during that time. only when i realized it's affecting my studies did i stop. however it already made a mark on my records. i would have finished college with better grades and top marks.

That is about the same thing that happened to me by not taking physics in high school, my college grades suffered partially because of that.

Nothing..I guess what had happen before is important of what I am now..and whether that was good or bad its something that needs not to be changed anymore..who knows what will happen in the future if ever we will change something in the past? The downside is that, things in the future might be just getting worst if you will change the past..

I think that there are soooo many things in my past that I would change. But, for the sake of this discussion I won't bore everyone and just pick one. I think that I would have paid my way through college instead of taking out so many student loans. I acutally never knew that you could pay for college as you went! I thought that if you didn't have it all up front that you had to get a loan. Now, we're still paying for it and I know that there would be a lot less stress in our lives if I would have just paid for it while I attended school.

Actually I think about it alot. And I know well if I had done this differently or that differently it would have been like the famous butterfly effect- and I would't have my lovely daughter and precious grandchildren, but if I could keep that part the dame- I would redo my entire life from high school on. I always regret that I didn't just run away from home early-age thirteen or fourteen. I was so determined to get to college and in the fifties, it just didn't seem likely a runaway could finish school. Later I learned thta there was a way all along. Staying in the disaster that was my home ended up very very disastrously for me. but hey- things are what they are.
