80 Post Challenge – Post 73

List your biggest regrets.

Well this is hard. -_- I try not to regret anything, since that implies that I’ve not learned from an experience. At least it does to my mind. Hmm. Okay… be prepared for a list of things that I do in fact regret.

  1. Not being more honest to the ‘friends’ of secondary school about how much they hurt me with some of their actions.
  2. Not trying out for more amateur dramatics shows while I had more free time.
  3. Quitting ballet lessons (though I was about five at the time)
  4. Not calling or visiting my grandmother Susan more often (she passed away last year)
  5. Not trying harder at university  (I know full well I was capable of a better grade than the one I got)

Its not a very long list, but I really can’t think of much. Too much of my life is a learning curve and things that I might regret I choose not to because I’ve learned from them.

Sorry there isn’t anything juicier. Promise… if I think of more, I’ll add them in. 🙂

My 80 Post Challenge is brought to you with help from Tom Slatin’s 80 Journal Writing Prompts.

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    I hope you won’t regret me nominating you for the Illuminating Blogger Award. 🙂 You can see the details at http://jmmcdowell.com/2012/07/28/tagged-illuminatingly/

    There’s no obligation, of course, to accept. I enjoy bringing new blogs to readers’ attention, and the awards are a good way to do that. 🙂
