Student loans.  Should have figured out a career path that didn't necessitate massive debt.

Asking people what their biggest regret is will do nothing to make your life different. In fact, if anything its going to make you feel miserable for some objectively petty and stupid reason. We all have our own list of regrets, and that list is unique to everyone because we all live such varied and different lives. Take a chance, chase a dream, whatever you really want to do. You live your life and answer to no one but yourself, so if you need the subjective opinions of other people to judge your life worth....well you have work to do

Fark has reached midlife. There's some olds and some youngs here, but I'd suspect that the bulk of the Fark population falls within one standard deviation of age 40.

LL316: Student loans.  Should have figured out a career path that didn't necessitate massive debt.


My first two years of college were covered completely by grants and scholarships.  I should have taken out student loans and put the money aside to cover dealing with unpaid internships.

Please remember this was a long time ago when student loans were federally backed and had low interest rates.

All you can do is learn from them and move forward.  Sorry you didn't take that trip when you were in college?  Go now.   As I said in the other thread, the future is a blank page.

It's usually "answering the g-d phone in the first place".

Maybe I've forgotten the name and the address of everyone I've ever known. It's nothing I regret.
