I received an e-mail from my mom this morning. She was just saying how much she loved me and missed me (how DARE she). She mentioned that not knowing when she is going to see me next is really hard for her (join the club little lady). Her e-mail, while loving and kind, sent me into one of my patented freak outs about my time here in Australia. Blah blah blah why I am doing this to myself. Blah blah blah I am home sick. Blah blah blah oh wait I'm in AUSTRALIA and I am HAPPY.
Then I started thinking about regrets. I can't actually think of anything that I regret at the moment. I am pretty calculated when making decisions. However, there is one thing that numerous people told me I was going to regret: skipping my college graduation. Oh, if you want to get some people riled up I highly recommend pointing out that you won't be attending your own graduation ceremony, ye gods the drama. I didn't regret it. Not even for a moment. Not for a second. In fact, I don't think I have spent this much time thinking about it ... ever.
So, when my graduation here came up, I didn't hesitate to check "graduating in absentia" off on the form letter.
The post has very little point. Apologies.
Do you regret anything? Sock it to me?
