    I have so many regrets.

    I regret taking a break after graduating college. I regret allowing the naysayers to plant doubt in my mind, and veering away from my goals. I regret the time I spent on people I did not care about, and who do not care about me. I regret not taking the G.R.E. so that I could go...
