    I kind of like everything Ive done tbh, there are some super minor things like ordering the wrong dish from time to time but everything Ive done made me who I am now and Im happy with that, so cba to change

    It may have required less socialising, partying, extra curricular as (generalising here) doing better scales with time spent studying so would you really have been willing to sacrifice more time for better results? :holmes:

    So where i grow up we had these like kid weddings -it's as stupid as it sounds. BUt at the age of 7 I married some girl called Becca. I regret not kissing her after putting the haribo ring on here. I just kinda hugged her awkwardly :/

    I wasn't the partying type lol
    I wasted my time gaming and being 'rebellious'
    However I think i would have ended up in the same situation anyway

    I don't know about regret, it just frustrates me I wasn't good enough to do what I wanted.

    I wish I didn't give up music. I was accepted into a music course and was one of three singers to make the cut and I finally felt like I found what I wanted to do in life but I led stupid little idiots in the class bring me down and I let them get to me way too much than I should have and I quit and haven't really sang or performed ever since. Looking back, I kick myself over not just standing up for myself or just ignoring them but meh, what is done is done and I've learned from it.

    I regret being a bit lazy in my teenage years. If I'd got a part time job while I was still in school, I would have some actual money to fall back on. I wouldn't be struggling with money as much as a student, and I'd have more money to spend on hobbies and things like that. I'm trying to get into photography proper and it can be an expensive hobby if you want good equipment for it.

    I'm managing ok with money, but it would of course be nice to have more of it. And it probably would have been easier to balance a part time job with school work than with university work (especially my final year).

    I sometimes wish I joined the chapel choir at Cambridge. It's exclusively traditional music, and you get voice coaching with it. Now if I want to join an amateur choir, it involves being willing to sing more modern music, not just traditional classical choral stuff. Cathedral choirs tend to be excluded to people who have been choristers from childhood.

    On the other hand, if I was in the choir I'd have had no life other than that and my degree... so maybe it was for the best.

    I regret many things:
    - Not taking my GCSEs seriously until the last minute.
    - Giving up too soon
    - Listening to people that put me down
    - Wasting my time being there for people who only put me down further

    But i guess we regret stuff so we don't make same mistakes again I guess. *shrug*

    not taking my A-level seriously and getting obsessed with girls and drinking around 15/16....

    Lifes not too bad now, but I've missed on so many opportunities and lost the love of my life because of it's eventual results.

    - Turning down an offer from a local music school who thought I seemed "gifted" to have free violin lessons.
    - My GCSE options. I wish I would have chosen French, German, Art and Graphics instead of French, Sociology, Art and Geography.
    - I regret staying on at my school's sixth form so much.
    - I regret my A-level options. Even staying at my school's sixth form, I wish I hadn't chosen Physics or Chemistry.

    Basically, I suck at making decisions.

    Edit: ALSO I REGRET NOT REVISING FOR MY GCSEs MORE. I COULD HAVE GOT MORE A*S BUT I WAS TOO ARROGANT AND LAZY

    Wish i had been nicer to some people in my life. As you grow older you'll realise the petty fights and fallouts in 6th form mean absolutely nothing.
