Never say never. Dare ya.

Regrets, as most will agree, are viewed as a waste of time. Some friends have expressed proudly to me that they have NO regrets. That’s like saying I’m above reality television: Bullshit.

Regrets can also conveniently be turned into learning experiences. In high school, I accidentally insulted the class Wiccan. He claimed the ability to make it rain, so you can imagine my horror of turning around and finding him staring deep into my now damned soul. I felt terrible and have ever since been more careful before making fun of others. This regret turned into a Life Lesson, therefore making me appreciate that it occurred in the first place.

But I will go on record right now as having one regret. Just one. And it's a biggie.

In college, for our annual Flunk Day celebration (school sanctioned celebration), I booked Chicago’s Kill Hannah as the musical entertainment instead of...

...OkGo.

Ugh. Now you see why. There’s no lesson to be had. I couldn’t have seen a few months into the future when they’d release their sensational treadmill video. My error has forever left a void in the hearts of every student...a garish gash upon the gentle, porcelain veneer that is Coe College. No offense meant to Kill Hannah, of course.

What's your greatest regret?

regrets...yeahhhhhh i think i'm one of those elitists who don't *really* have any. but i'll indulge you...

1) 7th grade - trapped on a big rock in the middle of lake erie (okay there was a path of them people climbed over - but i got scared, started crying and in turn got stuck). this guy who i had the biggest crush on came and helped me through my shameless tears. whats the regret? should have kissed him! that would have sooooo made him my bf. we were 12...

2) we had this program in college where you could go to hawaii for a semester for the SAME PRICE. buttttt they sorta kept the program on lock-down...you had to *know* someone to be a part of it. and by then you are in your junior year and who wants to leave their SENIOR year?! apparently it was the most amazing thing ever. classes were a joke and you learned to surf and you were ughhhh in HAWAII.

thats all i got for now...on a much brighter note! effffffff yeah to our little endeavor! more soon friends. i'm sure you are losing sleep over not knowing the detz ;)
