Taken (american) football more seriously back in high school. :rofl:
Seems petty, but there is nothing more I want than to be back out on the field. Unfortunately, one dream that is nearly impossible to remedy now. :(

I wish I spent more time with my father. I wish I could tell him I forgive him. So many things have happened since he passed, that I wish I could just share with him. I wish I could have at least shared one drink with him. Just one.

I wish I picked up more languages in school.
That would have made my current life easier and more interesting

Like others- probably appreciate the ones I have lost more, taken more time listening to my late Grandfather's stories he used to tell (he was blind and loved to tell stories that as kids we thought were boring), and build a stronger relationship with my Dad who passed in 2007.

So, with that said... "BUMP" !

I would love to have an excellent work ethic, and not see it as a huge life downer that stops me from enjoying life.

There was this girl that I liked for ages, we were one of those weirdly close best friend type deals and I thought I had been friend zoned. A year ago she got together with this guy and she really likes him, a couple of months ago one of her other friends was talking to me and she asked why I had never made a move on the girl and I said it's because we were just good friends and that I did like her but just didn't think she was into me. Then her friend told me that she had liked me for about 2 years and she kept flirting with me but I just ignored it. I'd convinced myself that she didn't like me so whenever she flirted with me I acted awkward or brushed it off thinking it was a joke and because of that she gave up and went elsewhere.

I've changed that now, and not just when it comes to woman, if I want something to happen then I don't just sit around telling myself that it won't or waiting for it to happen itself, I make it happen... or at least try :p

So long story short the only thing I'd change is the timing of me growing some balls to a year and a half ago!

Earlier in my life I would have said my height. I'm between 5' 5" - 5' 6" and I used to want to be taller in my late teens / early twenties, but to be honest it doesn't really bother me anymore.

Can't really think of anything else, maybe a better memory? :p

I've got something about work I wish I could change, not sure if it relates to you or not,

I look at people who work, work as a whole, and then life, and I see one thing only,

You work to live, and you live to work, then you get a few years as a grey old person, then you die.

I've got a bee in my bonnet about that, I continuously think, "What TF is the point in life if you spend your days doing something you hate / if you're lucky, like, but still spend your entire able life working just to live ?"

Kinda makes life pointless imo, I know and 100% understand you can not rely on others to survive, and work is 99% of the way out and away from that, but you know what, I disagree, I would prefer to live life in a wooden cabin, miles from anyone, living off the land and have my life to myself / spend with my partner, than donate 90% of my life to someone who needs sausage rolls put in a cardboard packet (example)

My life is mine, and yes I have to pay for what I want, but I would prefer to be without than (and if this was possible) look down at my life in fast forward and see the young me, turn into the old grey me, having done sweet FA other than worked for someone my whole life for no other reason than to be alive....

In what way? You wish you were a better xxxxxx at your religion ? (I put xxxx because each religion has a different name per person, ie. Christian)

I wish I was too, but I guess we could be, if we looked for it ;)

Well said mate! I know the feeling and living that way certainly make's life no worth living. How come we cant live life the way we want to?

Besides that, if I can change something about my life than it would be for everyone to stop pretending I dont exist. I feel like I have to lower my IQ so people can acknowledge me..... :\

If you think about it, would you regret the things you did, or the things you didn't do.
The latter is, to me, by far the most important.

That's why I live by the motto: Live each day as if the world is ending tomorrow.

;) You exist, as for the IQ thing, I have crap General Knowledge, which, in things like pub quiz's I do horrendously badly, but quiz me about computers and I do just fine

Just because you have an interest in one particular thing, vs most people who know loads about everything but FA about one thing, doesn't give you a low IQ at all

Quiz me about GK I would be as stupid as a monkey

Quiz me about PC's, I'd shine

IQ tests are flawed ;)


EDIT - just re-read your post, you feel you have to lower your IQ to relate to people, well yea, I think people who understand computers, do, in general, have a higher IQ than people who don't, and that is not a dig at non-techy people, just a statement based on experience

But I still hold the above, we might be PC Wizards, but they might be brain surgeons... it all depends on your particular interest I guess :)
