If you were given the opportunity to go back in time and change anything, what would it be?

I never would have quit a job working for the state, and never would have married my second husband. I believe those two life experiences were the two biggest mistakes of my life. I am happy though that I added two more children to my family and I can't imagine my life without them.

I agree; though, I didn't work for the state, I worked for the county. I was a general clerk for the School Board of _____ County. I liked the money I made, but the aggravation really was not worth it. I wish I could go back so I could have a decent paycheck, but there really aren't any jobs being offered that are away from the department I worked in.

I would start saving for retirement as soon as I started working.

I would have learned to drive a car when I was a teenager. I bought a house when I was 19 years old and some of my friends had pasted their driving tests. They had bought cars. I was working for a ship brokers and traveling by train every day. I went traveling around the world and then I went to university. I still didn't take driving lessons then. I did begin learning to drive in 2003 when I was teaching at school by the coast. I was riding my bike to the train station and then catching two different trains before cycling to the school. Cycling kept me so fit but on a rainy evening when it was getting dark and I had a load of books on the back of my bike in its panniers I wished I had pasted my driving test years ago. I ran out of money for lessons and I have a car that stays in one of my parking spaces all the time.

I was afraid of learning to drive, and I did not see what the big deal was. As far as i was concerned, I also thought having a car is ridiculously expensive, so I could not be bothered. There were other things I wanted to use my money for. I didn't get my driver license until I was 25! I wish I would have learned earlier, as well. Now, I can not live without my car...lol

Accepting a job at a company that I worked at for 8 years, only to get fired from a new manager that got transferred to our office. I still have't found another job yet.

Oh, dear! That stinks! There are lots of people losing their jobs - especially after having put in a great deal of their lifetime there. I think it's a huge "F- you," in my humble opinion. I'm sorry you are still looking for work. I hope you find something soon. I too, was laid off back in October of 2008 - the 28th, to be exact. My job serch was turning to crap, so I joined with a temp agency called Randstad. I have only had ONE assignment. Now I'm waiting to hear back from them, and my mom has been waiting to hear from them for a little over 5 weeks now.
