As the years pass us by, we reflect a lot on past experiences. Some fun, some sad, and some we regret or would like to change. I don’t think there’s anyone out there who can say that they don’t have remorse for something in their past, or wish they could change something. I know a lot of people say live with no regrets, but we’re all human, and we all have at least 1 thing.
My thing would be with my education. I went to three different colleges to end up not finishing any of the courses I started. First year was for Entertainment Administration, Second I moved to Recording Arts Management, and third I moved to Radio Broadcasting, none of which I finished!
When I started Entertainment Administration, I figured it was just a fancy name for being a secretary in the entertainment industry. Not something I wanted to do, I wanted to make an impact in the music industry and that wasn’t going to cut it. So I moved to a different school to do Recording Arts Management, which was more my cup of tea, I wanted to be an artist manager or road manager. Loved the program, loved the school, loved the people but hormones got the best of me, and I decided to move in with a guy who lived in Atlanta Georgia, figuring I could make it out there. Which, didn’t happen!
I moved back home and thought being a radio DJ would be fun, so I decided to go back to school and get my degree in Radio Broadcasting at the local college. Well, when I moved to Atlanta, I also met my now husband online, and when I moved back home, after we met, that was it. I was still in school, so was he, but we decided to get married, and I decided to drop out and move to Indiana from Canada and see if I could just continue my radio broadcasting degree at his University, since it was offered. What I didn’t know was what a pain in the butt it was to transfer credits and be able to apply to an American University.
If I could I would reverse course for that part of my life, I wouldn’t dare change getting married to my husband, but, I would change the way I bounced around so much, and would have actually stayed in school to finish at least ONE of those programs to get my Bachelor’s, because now, as an adult, the thought of going back to school is coming into my head. I want to go back for a Bachelor’s in Education, however, 4 years of school right now? I don’t think I could handle it.
Do you have any regrets or remorse about any of your past decisions? Anything you wish you could change or maybe you did take a stand and change? I’d love to hear your stories.
