RE: What is your biggest regret?
The positive side to having the childhood I did is not having these kind of problems now. If there is error, I learn from it and move forward. The closest thing I got to regret is that fraction of a second in the morning.

It's clear to me now that my mistakes are much more horrible and regretful than your mistakes. Cool

Sounds like it, but one easy way to avoid regret is to first just realize that you are about to make a decision or act in a manner you might later regret. Just that realization and consideration before action or decision are enough to eliminate regret. Regret comes from a lack of consideration and deliberation, "Damn, I should've seen that coming." Sufficient consideration and deliberation leave no room for regret. .... That said, what's done is done, water under the bridge. Don't see how dwelling on past poor decisions or actions is anything but counterproductive. You see it, you recognize it, and you say, "Well I'm not gonna do that again.", and move on. I mean, what else can you do?

If by 'remorse' you mean you wish that you had not done something you did or, you wish you had done something you didn't, then we are talking about the same thing.

If it is coupled with the desire to make corrections, if possible, then we are, indeed, on the same page.

Nah, I'm just talking about ways to try and reduce your sentence when facing the judge.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Oh! So you're saying I should just give my burdens to Jesus. Now I get it! Tongue

Yes, Hellbound Preacher, that's what I'm saying. But to your own personal Jesus. ... Oh shit, now I gotta play it.

RE: What is your biggest regret?
My greatest regret? Well, just about all of the last 8 years. Bad choice of schools and jobs. That happens when you're sort of interested in everything but nothing specific and the region has very little choice for schools and jobs, mostly technical stuff. I fucked up many years because I didn't know what I am and what I want. First I had to figure out these things, re-invent my personality and undergo some radical transformations. Which is still nothing compared to what some truly motivated people did. I spend too much time by making the life bearable. I don't think it would be better if I'd lose even that (computer blow up), because I can't speed up things anyway. I've got to wait and work through this one.

Now I know myself and everything tells me to get the hell out of here into a big city. I don't hate any people. But I've got a strong, hearty hate for boring curricula, office paperwork and work at conveyor belt. Boredom is one of few things I'm really afraid of. If I do the next year right, I'll begin the way out of this to where I'll never do the boring things again. I'll study what I really want and find there intelligent people of my age. But now, it's a drag.

My biggest regret would be that I don't have enough regrets.

Wasting too much time regretting anything and not just getting on with it.

My biggest regret is not doing better at school but I don't dwell on it because there is no point Undecided
I wish I had better math skills as then I could've studied astrophysics.
