My only regret is that I can’t afford to travel more after being tanked in the recession. Otherwise, I am not one to dwell on the past, gotta keep moving forward.

There’s a person or two I regret not having sex with. Otherwise no, no regrets really.

Saving money. Learning to play piano.

I hope to rectify both before I die.

I am so glad that I have read Proust, and I hope that my husband did as well before he died. I assume he did, since he read everything. I would not have realized it, but now I know that it would have been a big regret not to have read his books.

Way back when, the Internet was just getting ramped up, most of what was on it was chatrooms and porn. Somehow some startup sent me a letter or an email (I am not sure how they even got my hookup) that wanted partners for a new adult entertainment site, you had a basic turnkey site for a base price and you could add additional feature for little more. They would manage the sites, membership, etc. all I would have to do is drive traffic to it. The cost to buy in was doable to me, I might have had to tighten my belt a paycheck or two, and I almost did it, but I kept thinking, ”Who would be dumb enough to pay $2 a minute to have some woman they can’t see talk dirty to them?” Apparently millions of men did. Another Brother who did do it back around that time (I did not know him then, or he I) said he raked in about 100k a month min. When I think about it, I could have been a multimillionaire, had all the toys I ever dreamed of. A lot of known headaches in life would never have been, if I would have had other headaches, I don’t know. My flesh still regrets it but my spirit doesn’t for what I have now is worth more.
