What life choices do you regret?

A spinoff of F2B's "30+ yr old's- Give your 1 piece of general advice in life for us in our 20s" post what life choices you've made that you now regret and wish you would have taken another direction.

I made the mistake of getting a B.S. in Business Management when I should have really stuck with Computer Science in high school, At the time I figured it would be better to go with an easier/broad major plus it doesn't help I slacked in my junior/senior in college

Five years later my experience/industry is in Systems Engineering (and I love it) but I'm looking at my degree and just wanting to

Sorry, not a very interesting story and I can get into a Masters program with a Computer Science focus but I just wanted to post my story as an example for the thread.

I'm sure we'll get a few more "interesting" posts

Re: What life choices do you regret?

Waiting until my late 20s to understand finance and investing and thus effectively starting to save for retirement in my 30s. Playing catch-up is not nearly as easy as things would have been if I had started earlier.

Don't bottle it up and just let it out, you'll feel much better.

being shy
getting married (it was good for a while, then it sucked). as I look back on it, we pretty much got married for the wrong reasons, but at least I got being a dad out of it.
