Probably a lot of OPPs won't feel would do this on the radio but here's mine. Some dirty and getting ready to leave for college soon I'm always hearing older people say they regret doing things they wish they didn't or not doing the things they wish they would have. I don't wanna have a lot of regrets when I'm older can you maybe have some people tell me what their regrets are in life and how to avoid them. What things should I do and I'm young and what things should I stay away from what should I see. What stuff most people do that's a waste of time thanks guys this is does the. Colin welcome to our rookie took up. Arms. It's this is like a really. It's a really simple question but it's also really. I feel like to. She was right like we probably shouldn't do this on radio and minutes seem time. I did what to do this for three days on the radio there 'cause there's so many regrets. Regrets about what did you and regrets so why didn't I do them but what but what would be the first attack. Her going off to college I I was kinda serious I think. My suggestion is don't regret anything Nolan back. Have no regrets just gal just do everything you want and then sure Ol eagle guy I want to do who cares you did it is awesome really had no regret any united. You don't you don't regret anything OL it's. He's done enough. Oh era credit but it's doing and I think I think my thing would be. I would I would not in. Feel I'm I would have as many relationships as humanly possible relations. No relationships I don't like every old relationships. I mean they do not be done doesn't have to be with au Aurora to this meet people I think that was one of my biggest things is like I guiding in. Riots of like this is micro. In these in these are gonna be my core of friends and this is. This is it and then. Knew things would be a deal before me like as on a friendship level or whatever might. And that's how I got friends oh you wanna expand your friend horizon or your circle of acquaintances because as you get older. The G don't but I. This is so hard because I know so many people who don't let go high school. There is that you you can't tell me that we if you went back to what attain or whenever it wherever it is. Eighty some percent of those people are still there are all still friends that go to the same Boris they do all the same crap as they used to do. They're all pretty much in the same vicinity yes that's all the stuff that's the last what they wanted but I think I think. I was sort of that minute getaways from the initial clip mom high school but I got out and I'm like well how will fluctuate. She made it even some like you were in an official click and high school I need you were the I us. Listen I wasn't she knew you when you and me and I was in their. By the time. Let's high school I had my run of the clinics because you're generally good what I was allowed in all of them because they Sami played Arnold sudden Boca the jocks and embraced me more than they ever had was like in the moment I'm just gonna colon girls girls and Australia but like I was like oh my god I'm gonna like try to break free of all this. And I broke free and in the first group of people that I was with like Mike and compiled terrorism like this is it. And I never did it again by CQ what do you say I just might reassess my first staying would be did you got to just keep. New king your life and starting over but I would say. He opened two new crap all the time but don't don't say I don't like dad because I didn't like him when I was seven yet just. All all that stuff that I did in my life my biggest regret is heating grow. I didn't grow as much as I think I could ask you you can affect you kind of stunted yourself a little bit must make that we all do that I think it's one of those things where it's site. I didn't light. This is just terrible example I like stuffing when I was trying to go Turkey stuffing. And so. Down sixteen a limo be like try it and I know is I don't like he's fifteen years ago on my growing minimum 26. And I try to like. All. I. Multiply it times real stuff in your life Sasha. Like all I try zip lining when I was fourteen and it sucks on me for doing that again OK I don't try to get so close off avenues. Sure making so we just talked for like eighteen minutes and that's all I meant until we have we have I don't think. He might steamroller who sang it very well okay would you do what would you to mean. Other than don't have any regrets do you is there were a link. One thing you wish you darn. For me it's like a personal thing it was shorter pursued my baseball career a little further as opposed to denial time party insiders can ask you about drugs do you think. I don't think you tell yourself to do as many or do the same amount or do you lessons that I've never regretted guy yeah I wouldn't you guys are young and about thirteen which so little. Watts but I don't think that's young in today's world at all OK as most people go to she regrets or no I mean that's when I start wrestling star and see that's why I I would love to go back to maybe change things and I think to myself right now why. It all all roads lead to were Imad Knauss of a change one thing. I'm among a different road somewhere else could it be better going to be worse who knows I like the road like the capitalism. That's that's cool damp so maybe maybe your initial advice of don't regret. Is doing. No there's consequences oh well you know in five years who cares. Also on the other hand I got to look at my nephew he made some life choices young and he's still kind of pain for him now and now he's might have to. Dragnet baggage with him for awhile don't do that oh I am a great suggests OK okay here real. Do financially secure as fast as humanly possible. The fallout from not being financially secure the stress. Everything that that entails. It's just it's who you are trying to get your potent group 128 it's too late. I think so you'll eventually get there but it's kind of two and no kid that age wants to be financially responsible I had a little bit held because I got some money bequeath to block off all the fallout than the stress that comes with not being efficient and financially secure now worth it try and try your best to do this. You want ire is concentrating on my finances in night. I wonder what they each each inning you're listening pictured your eighteen year old self destiny ready to. She's packing up her Honda Accord the fifth full of all the crap she needs for dorm room and she's like what should I do what you and not do their clubs I should join sure even tried to school what. What is on this road astronomy. Helping make some decisions before the decisions are directly in front and at least you attempt to college I never did but I never really regret that. I don't I don't regret going and I don't regret leaving Oka I don't I don't regret either one but I regret I had to pay a little bit rate. But it's like whatever but are you move on yes and you'll regret looking back I wish Oregon my degree in this in this throughout this I think I would have regretted staying in school when that tour Pete. It was this is this is like not literal but when the tour bus pulled out I got the call it's and stay there you wanna go out on the road.
