I don't really regret it. I just regret that I'm not smart enough for it. Or idk. Maybe it's because I haven't had actual work experience in it.

I could of gone n become an MD. 

Their work is easy and I thought of their schooling was hard when it was actually easy.  It just lengthy.  Give me 20 years to finish I don't care, I still call it easy. 

The dumbest md here in the bay area probably making 20k a month.  I could use that 20k for doing easy work.

I regret for not taking it more seriously...in stead i hung out with a bunch of smokers, partied animals, and financial aid money vultures...get their free money and dropped out...lols I didn't do that...but i knew a lot who did so...I actually returned my financial aid money one semester when I dropped out the day before it came in the mail...lols  I was tempted to keep it but I was like naa its going to come back and hunt me...

i might still go back to school...but only for self pride and to no longer be the only one in the family who didn't finish college...lols otherwise, i'm pretty happy with where I am, and with semi- retirement...l ols

No, I don't regret going into my major.  I love what I do.  But if I had all the time in the world, I'd major in a couple of other things too.  I think I'd probably enjoy doing Financial Analysis work too, and writing, and being a pediatrician because I love kids (but I wouldn't want to be a teacher because I don't have that kind of patience for 20+ kids at the same time).

No, because I knew what I wanted to do since I was 15.

No regrets.  With a bachelor in a technical field, you are usually given grunt work.  You have to prove myself a lot and hardly use your brain in the work that you do; things can be very boring.  With an advanced degree, a person is trusted with more responsibiliti es, scope, and growth.  Last but not least, there are the connections that you get from doing advanced studies: meeting other experts in the field at conferences to discuss current evolving knowledge, working with peers under a program of studies, exchanging data/ideas with collaborators outside of your specialization, and bouncing ideas with researchers/professors in the forefront of their specialization .

3 years later update:

Well a coworker of mine has 15 years invested into her work.  She just dropped the bomb that she is leaving for another company.  I'm sure she has her reason and I'm not holding her back but I still can not rationalized a career change like this, not after 15 years into the job. 

I'm sure it is not work politics or the money because she is the top of the crop and she owns the show in her little department here.  Most people would just pace themselves out for another 10 and call it a retirement but not her though.  You know what her reason?  Lack of motivation and tired of doing the same stuff on the daily. 

Maybe her husband is her support just in case the grass is not greener on the other side.  I can not see myself without a job.  I used to have a backbone but as older folks died off, that backbone is no longer there.  I can not be a hmongrock and sit in his basement and goes on unemployment while he got someone at home to support him.  Life will sucks for me if I'm unemployed and actually is a scary thought.  I mean I suppose I can go hook it up with an older chick that has a job and a foundation and go marry her for support but that is not even an option.  I could go hook up with some barely legal females because them females do not need a man who has a job or a career.  They just need a guy who will make them feel good and have enough to keep them on their toes.  Weird but some women need a man just for the sake of having a man around.  These are the low maintenance, lower class, not looking towards her future type of a women    :idiot2:

3 years update?  Still doing the same thing with a side gig and getting audit by the IRS cuz you don't report income and they will eff you up when they finds out.   :2funny:
