  • I hated every second of graduate school. I should've known better than to think any good could come of such a horrible experience. I wish I'd recognized what the universe was trying to tell me.

    I know there is no point in regretting anything you've done. Nothing can change the past. None-the-less, I regret the choices I made with regards to grad school. I wish I had studied something else. Or nothing at all.

    I got nothing of value from the experience, and I wasted two years of my life and tens of thousands of dollars. It's hard not to regret something like that.

    (The photo is one I took in Big Sur while I was pursuing another future that did not pan out, but it is an experience I do NOT regret.)
