    The Great Debate

    I contemplated joining this group as I've trained myself not to have regrets. But the more I think about it the more I know that I'm just avoiding the truth. If I could go back I would change things. I would have gone directly to college and I would have purchased a home and a...

    Hindsight Is Perfect Vision

    I think it's a bit too easy to look back and say what would have been the better decision after the fact when you have all the information.

    Crossroads and Forks

    I have often dreamed of crossroads and also forks in the road ahead.  So when I reach a crossroad in my life I am aware that my choice will have a deep impact - not just on me but on those affected by my actions.  I agonise so long and hard about big decisions.  I...

    Bratty children get on my nerves. Like seriously, we know who's in charge and it's not the parents. I will be able to go anywhere with my kids and they will know not to misbehave.
