Re: given a chance...

I would have liked to remember my 30cm ruler in my GCSE Graphics final exam. I got a B over all and it was my only one.

Re: given a chance... what would you change?

I'd make the effort to have a better relationship with my dad before he died.

Re: given a chance... what would you change?

since it's the EF, i wish i'd met the architect.

had a few chances, was there in the beginning, i know most people here, old and new (mostly the oldies) i'm glad to have met the ones i do know, many are my good friends here. i will miss you all...

but no regrets, this forum still has some of the old spark left - live long & prosper!

Erm..wish I picked the correct lottery number etc etc
i don't think it was too serious. a good reminder that sometimes we take things for granted until the moment they are gone.

It's true, you should put it back, I found it helpful.

I would have learned IT straight from the beginning instead of Economy first, and IT afterwards.

Re: given a chance... what would you change?

Change? hmm... just let me go back to when I was half as old as I was now, but with everything I know from today.

Alas... none of that will come back *sigh*

Re: given a chance... what would you change?

In the past? I would be less understanding. It sucks to understand, sometimes.

I would stay away from epidural or hire a doula.

I would move my band here.

And recent past? I would have backed up my hard drive

lol. I learned from my first birth experience not to get in the bed. I simply refused the second time round.

What would I change? I wouldn't have bought a house with so many stairs.

I would have made sure to ask for an "exit interview" when I quit working for a company I'd been with for 15 years. Allowing someone who had so affected my enjoyment of my job to have the last say on my personnel file was a huge mistake.
