**Sid Vicious version:

“Regrets, I’ve had a few, but then again, too few to mention…”

It’s true. I’ve done a great many things, but I do have regrets.

Oh, there are lots of small ones which all seem to lead to the same thing: time wasted. Time wasted on the wrong relationships, the wrong job. Worrying about trivial things: What everyone else thinks, how fat I WASN’T, who likes me or doesn’t. Who cares! If I could have a conversation with 18 or 19 year old Emily…What I wouldn’t say to her!

My greatest regret though is not having completed college right after high school. Which leads me to where I am today, a returning adult student.

It feels a little ridiculous in some ways. I’ve had one career already. Am I too old to start an entirely new one. Is it too late to decide what I want to be when I grow up. The truth is, it seems like it has taken me this long to figure it out. And of course, I have changed my mind more than a few times.

Each choice I’ve made, each path I’ve taken has led me to where I am today. Doing it any differently may have risked fate turning out another way.

So here I am finally finishing the degree I started. And once I’ve made up my mind do to something, move on, or let go (and I’ve learned that I can do anything I put my mind to!), I’m pretty good about accomplishing goals I set. Some things just take longer than others.

Regrets of yesterday are nothing more than the goals of tomorrow.

Welcome back to late nights pumped full of coffee.


**** I did finally graduate in2016 with my Bachelors degree, and Cum Laude!
