    One of the best things about my childhood is that I only did a few stupid things and none of them were intentional.

    Regretting that sort of seems like regretting yourself. Looking back on your past with understanding and acceptance is important, I think, especially in teaching you how to understand other people and their faults. Turning up your nose and going 'ugh I was such an idiot' is selling yourself short.

    i dunno; i mean, everyone assumes that what we're talking about in terms of "regretting one's past" is, like, that time you drank too much, or that girl you probably shouldn't have fucked, etc.

    and i don't really regret those things; i guess that going through them was just something that people do when they're young.

    i do regret some of the cruelties i inflicted on people. i regret failing out of college and costing my parents money and letting them down. i regret not being a better brother to my brother when he, in turn, was failing out of college. i regret some of the opportunities i wasted.

    i mean, i can't go back and change them, and i don't agonize over that kind of shit every day, but just like making mistakes is part of growing up, regretting and learning from one's mistakes is probably a more important part.

    Kilroy has it right. It's pretty much the fucking worst. Hope you like messing around on the internet, playing video games, and drinking/getting high alone, because there's nothing else to fucking do.

    this almost happened to me and the threat of having that level of disappointment scared the shit outta me. it was a great motivator, though. I mean, if I could go back and do it again, I would, but then I wouldn't have learned anything about what drives me. i think recognizing that is a part of growing up

    I went camping in the middle of the Adirondacks last weekend and we drove into a small town nearby. The town had no cellphone reception. I read a couple of their newspapers, mostly about town budgets, some history stories, fundraisers. It was really nice. One night I sat in front of a fire for a few hours and just thought. I was actually sad to leave. I feel like there are too many distractions where I live, doubly so in a city, and were I to live somewhere rural I'd have the time to do the things I really want to do, like improve on my nature photography, astronomy, write, think, etc.

    no; they aren't really. those were more serious.

    i guess i don't really regret the frivolous things i did while young except insofar as i kind of wish i'd been more serious about other things.

    like, i failed out of school my sophomore year in large part because i was playing computer games and partying and drinking and chasing girls and fucking around. i guess i wish i had spent less effort on frivolity there, and more effort on my school.

    i mean, i learned some important things being out of school, and had some experiences i otherwise would not have had, so i don't rue that time or anything, but it was definitely a waste of money and not something i'd really encourage someone else to do.

    i mean i don't endorse agonizing over past mistakes, but i also don't really think much of the "no regrets ever" philosophy either.

    Playing Dread made me antsy for Dead Space.

    It also made me antsy to go out and be social.

    I wonder how much of my craziness is just from social isolation that just doesn't bother me usually.

    I just bought dead space! absolutely love it. on chapter 2 right now.

    Dead Space is actually too scary for me.

    Not gory! Which it is as well.

    But just pure scary.

    The tension never ever stops.

    I don't even think there are Resident Evil-esque saferooms.

    I've played few the first 3rd or so so I've been not so scared but yeah god. I love how it rachets up the tension rather than relying on BOO! SCARED YOU!

    Yeah I don't think anyone was saying no regrets. I don't think anyone can honestly and completely avoid some sort of regret. They were just talking about the silly things. The things you shouldn't have worried about but did.

    I would definitely agree that reflecting on your actions is a really important part of growing up, and we may be talking past each other with our usage of regret.

    To put it more plainly, I think it's possible to intelligently let your past actions responsibly inform your current behavior without (overly) being down on your self.

    I've been having this problem this semester. I wasn't putting enough time into my classes. Try to block out a period of study time and keep reminding yourself that you have to stick with it. Get a notebook and write down your assignments and due dates so you don't forget anything. Today I went to the library after class and I identified what I was having trouble with (in chemistry) and then I went though the textbook and read the relevant sections and did the assignments until I got it. It feels good after you do it.

    I also found it helpful to purposefully segment your schedule to where you have an hour or two each day where you can't really do anything else but study or read

    so, time between classes, breaks between work shifts if you're working a job like that, etc
