I'm in my mid twenties and not married yet so I can't say kids or DH though hopefully I will be able to. I would say my biggest accomplishment thus far is getting into my top college. Also getting over my ex after two miserable years wanting him back. And thirdly, letting go of a past trauma and not letting it affect my daily life. My biggest regrets would probably be 1) really breaking a guy's heart by using him as a rebound guy and shoulder to cry on and then not wanting to pursue things with him 2) not really making friends in college since I was so obsessed with spending every day with my boyfriend who ended up not wanting to marry me anyway. 3) not following my dream career path right out of college because I wanted to choose the path that pleased them rather than what I actually loved most [ Reply | More ]

one advantage of moving during the school year rather than at the beginning of the year is that when you arrive, you are the only new kid arriving then, rather than one of 10 new kids, so people make more of an effort to include you, rather than you getting lost in the new school year shuffle [ Reply | More ]
