10 Things I Wish I Knew: The Good the Bad and the Ugly

If I knew then what I know now:

I would have paid more attention in math class

I would have not had a thirteen-foot afro after 1972

I would have copied down or recorded all of my grandmother’s recipes

I would have pressed my family for more information, concerning their immigration. That’s right folks, I’m ONLY second generation American!

I would have not squeezed my feet into those size 7 Tretorn sneakers, causing my feet to curl up and suffer like a 13th Century foot-binding victim

When my step-father called me a “bitch”, when I was all of seven in front of a slew of family, I should have said, “You stupid weak, man. Who calls a CHILD a nasty name? Then called out the family members that stood there.

I would have told someone how unhappy I was in the 5th grade

I would not have acted like one of the Heather’s

I would not have been so impulsive or afraid

I would understand how important money management is

  1. Read a honest post after very long time. More power to you ! I wish I could have studied literature instead of studying Engineering, just because all my friends were studying, I wish I had been more enthusiastic about career building instead of being focused on just getting married & making my family happy.

  2. I made a point to get my grandmother’s strew recipe before she passed because she and granda always made the best Irish stew! It’s always nice to have their recipes to continue on with 🙂
