    @Artificial-Sweetener:  

    Biggest Regret: Not being more educated about schooling before I just jumped into getting a college degree. I should have taken more time to think about what I wanted to do and whether or not I needed to rack up $30,000 in debt just to get a pretty pointless degree.

    Smallest Regret: Um…the fact that I stayed home from school sick today. I am actually sick, but I could at least be doing some work, which I’m obviously not! LOL

    Yeah. Careful of who you let tie you up…Not something that I consented to or enjoyed!

    But still better than the relationship that I had just gotten out of! So I can’t regret that disaster too much!

    Biggest Regret: Quitting sports once I hit middle school. I was good, and could have made school teams and kept going with at least 2/3 sports I played. I developed a habit of inactivity after that, a habit which I struggle with to this date as I try to lose weight.

    Smallest Regret: An argument DH and I had about a week ago. We’ve resolved it, and he’s moved on, but I said some stuff I shouldn’t have and am still feeling a little guilty about it.

    Biggest regret –

    Although I think this is actually my parent’s fault, I regret not getting braces when I was young (but how would I know I needed them?!)  My teeth are a little crooked now on top and bottom and at 29 years old, that is my biggest insecurity. Seriously, I stress over them every day because I hate them so much.  I don’t have the money right now to spend on invisalign but plan on it if I ever have extra money lying around — gotta take care of these student loans first  🙂

    My smallest regret is making happy hour plans for today with a friend. I just want to go home and get into my Pjs.

    Biggest: Getting fat. Not applying to any Ivies (probably would have been rejected, but now I will never know.) Getting engaged to ex-FI.

    Smallest: Not scheduling engagement pics earlier. Last week they got rained out, and tomorrow they may get rained out too–and the high is only supposed to be around 50 degrees. Brrr….

    Biggest regret(s): buying a house in Charlotte, NC…I HATED that place so much! I lost money on the house and renting it out has been a nightmare! 2 more big regrets: my college major and staying with my ex as long as I did

    small regret: leaving my first college to go to a different one, buying the car I have now

    Biggest regrets:

    • Transferring colleges. The school I left was higher ranked, very elite and I would have gotten a great education, but I transferred to a Christian college… where I then became an atheist. I’m embarassed about where I got my degree.
    • Not going skinny dipping with my husband before we had kids.

    Smallest regret right now: I should have put dinner in the crock-pot this morning.

    Biggest regret:  going to an expensive private school instead of a reasonable in state college…..would have significantly diminshed my student load debt!!  Not being more financially savvy when I was young and just out of college, I was pretty naive and ended up wracking up some debt just to get by.  I’ve learned my lesson, but man when I think back on the money I could have saved………

    Small regret:  not playing soccer in college, didn’t want to do the at home work outs during the summer so instead of “fudging” them I just didn’t play
