I wish I had gone on more roadtrips with friends.

I wish I had cut those classes to go to Ocean City with friends when it was beautiful outside.

I wish I had driven down to Durham, NC with friends on weekdays for the basketball games and then drive back all night to get back to school on time for the classes next day.

Now that I'm in, I wish I hadn't missed out on those things.

SadSmile (whoa, even your name is kinda depressing). Don't dwell on the past too much!! :D Think about the future. Otherwise, you're just gonna continue feeling like you're missing out all throughout dental school too. There's no time like the present to do crazy stuff. Is there an illicit drug you haven't tried yet? Go get some, and do it!! Serious. Haven't hooked up with anyone in a while? Go, and have some random fling. But don't lower your standards too much!! Like I said, think in the moment, if you concentrate on the past all the time you'll never move forward. :luck: :luck:

hrm.

I feel like there is only few things that I missed out in college, but otherwise my college expierence was great and I miss it alot.

1) Didn't expand my horizon in other subjects such as politics, or foreign affairs, and history.

2) I am not a wild type of person but I wonder what if I did some of the crazier stuff? --- not sure maybe i would regret doing the wild stuff ?

but overall I actually miss college and wish I was there now.

Can't wait for Dental School tho. New Friends yippie!

Oh wait, I do have one...

That I'd went to Pepperdine University like I'd originally planned, not let money get in the way so much.

Hey, I've heard that Pepperdine is in Malibu. Is that true? Also, is Ben Stein a professor there?

FYI, I'm not dwelling on the past.

It's something to think about or reflect on as you close another chapter in your life. (I sound like an Oprah p u s s y.)

Just felt like putting up the thread after phone calls with friends that graduated last year.

If this is too depressing or s h i t t y, someone can go ahead and shut this down.

Yea, I wish I had not been so damn lazy, studied harder, partied less, and spent less than 15+ hrs/week at the gym. At least my psychotic bodybuilding/powerlifting days allowed me to reach a personal best of 405 bench, 545 squat, and a 535 dead, although I was always a pec/quad/tricep tear away from injury and can not put up that kinda weight now. Ah well, I learned my lesson. :) Bring on the d-school!

Ok, I guess I assumed the worst when I read the post and saw your screen-name was SadSmile. I was like: "whoa! is this person depressed or what?" Why did you decide on SadSmile? I've got some good ones: DeadPuppy, BrokenHome, InTheGutter, ...

My first semester.. it brought my GPA's down and makes scars my transcript.
Ahhh.. can't go back in time... must understand that it's simply "getting used to college life"
And I will NOT make that mistake in dental school... that's for sure.

I wish i would have went to a smaller, easier state school....

One of the other state schools has an incoming freshman gpa (from high school seniors) of 2.7..A pre-med kid said the classes are a complete joke and now has a 3.9 GPA and has gotten into 4 med schools..

I can't answer that question since I really don't remember undergrad. It was so long ago!

Oh, I wish that Watson and Crick had discovered the structure of DNA before I took biology and before I graduated. My how things have changed.

I would say if anybody has regrets, learn from them and live your life now. Forget about the past and work hard for future. Go take a trip abroad or get to clubs (I donot like to) or do what ever the hack you missed in limitations and get a taste of it now.

Now that all of my friends jumped into the real world and can't do any of the spontaneous things. I guess I'll have to do that with other future DDS's.

Also, I guess I shouldn't feel regretful because apparently, it's f'ing ******ed to be regretful.

I saw "sad smile" in a book and just stuck with me for some reason.

Delicious, it's sad that a moron like you can't appreciate oxymorons. Make sure you start from "O" in your Webster dictionary.

I have no regrets from undergrad! I didnt study that much and bury myself in books like many people from my university would always do....I did an adequate amount of partying, had a few long term girlfriends, spent a year abroad in Europe, and was able to graduate from the #1 school in Canada and got into dental schools right away! Geez, I thought high school was so much fun, but undergrad was WAYYYY better! Ive lived such a great life so far with very few regrets...Now, lets just see how the next 4 years of dental school pans out! :hardy:

none! not a one regret. I was lucky though, youngest of four, so it was easy street through and through. Man, my time out of college, the first four years, was just as much fun as school.

regrets, never. And D-school, sure tons of work, but its a different ballgame, its life, so, with that said, There is no stopping the carnival...

hmm... is SadSmile really an oxymoron? If so, I guess I am a moron given my previous posts!! :laugh: :laugh:

An oxymoron is a rhetorical device where contradictory terms are combined ("deafening silence"). Does a smile necessarily indicate happiness? I mean, I can be upset and still produce a smile (which is just a facial expression). I feel like there have been times in my life where I've been sad, but smiled to pretend that everything was okay. So, in a sense, "smiling while sad" is worse than being just sad. Anyone able to relate? Or maybe I'm the one with the issues here.... :eek: That's how I interpreted your name. In my defense, I did write those posts at 4 in the morning. "SadSmile" may be an oxymoron, but not a particularly good one.

I wasn't trying to give you a hard time dude/dudette. What do I have to argue with you about?! nil. I just had a laugh trying to think of those screennames late last night. I'm a dork!! :D :rolleyes:

I agree. How lonely one must feel having noone to turn to to be able to express their inner sadness.Sadsmile, to hold those feelings inside, and essentialy repress your true feelings is unhealthy. Reaching out to your fellow SDNers is a great first step, Hang in there Tiger! :thumbup:

Well, I wasn't really commenting on SadSmile there. I was just commenting on his/her name. :p
