Come on. Join the fun.

Why not get things kicked off right away? As your founding member of "Question Everything" i feel obligated to post the first question/answer. This was taken from "The Book of Questions." i'll be taking a lot of questions from there. Enjoy!

The Question:
If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone or done with your life? Why haven't you told them yet or done what you wanted to do?

My Answer:
There is much that I would regret. The main thing is not telling a few people how I truely felt about them, or not letting them know in some way. I would regret not having told Adam off, not having told him my true feelings. As for what I'd regret not doing: Write
and publish a book. Visit Ireland. Go to college. Have a true relationship with a guy. Find a way to be truely and happy and content.

The reasons these things have not been said/done is either in someways they don't need to be said, or I haven't had the chance/desire to say them as of yet. The reasons things haven't been done are simple: no chance yet. I haven't been satisfied yet with anything i've written, enough to send it off to a publisher. I don't have the funds to go out of the country. I'm between high school and college right now. I haven't met anyone. Haven't found a way. So there you have it!

(p.s. Any other members--feel free to post your own questions and answers!!)

If I died tonight... I'd regret a lot of things. But, I'd regret most not being able to say good bye. I'd regret not being able to ease everyone's grief at my passing. And I'd regret every moment I spent wondering, waiting... just existing, rather than living. And I'd regret never being able to live my dreams. I regret all the wasted time. I regret wasting so much of my love and myself on Bryan. All I can do is try not to waste anymore time... I hate just sitting here, typing away. I want to be out there, doing something... living and having fun. But, I can't. I've got nowhere to go and a lot of time to get there.
My main regret would be unprintable here, but the next biggest one would be that I have not I have not gotten Heros Incorporated running on the level I would like. I been really busy lately and have not been able to do as much as I would like for Heros Inc.

I guess I'd have to say, I would regret having regrets.

The past is one thing that doesn't deserve a second chance. But it's a major part of me.

I guess I would regret never opening up to someone fully. Never letting a woman into my heart. And keeping people around me that are negative and that I keep around for the sake of not being alone.

But sometimes being alone is better than being lonely.
They're sharin a drink they call lonliness
,but its better than drinkin alone.

What you said reminded me of this quote.
I dig that song. heh.. probably where I subconsciously pulled it from.
I'd regret the thousand places I've never travelled, the thousand people I've never met, and the thousand smiles I'd never see. I'm fairly sure I'll die with this regret now matter how long it is before I die, and how much I do.
I feel a sense of completion to my life as it is. Regrets would be few and low. Regrets are only things you wished you'd done differently in the past. Dwelling on those may make us sad, or we can learn from them. I choose to learn. Since there would be no life left to learn. I would but enjoy my living aparition as much as possible then look to find out what really is on the other side. I'd only regret not giving but one hug to everyone who has ever ment anything to me, good and bad. And but one hug to those who have looked to me, without me seeing them. Because without the good and the bad, we are bland.
I would want to tell my family that I love them and that I'm happy. I'd want to tell "him" that I'm o.k. now and I grew but I will always love him and hold his hand. I'd want to tell her that she's beautiful and I only wish that we could of shared worlds a little more. As for regrets. I guess I just wish I brought my camera around more, listened to more music, and painted often.
Art. Something that there should be MORE of, but no one seems to create enough of it, or have the proper appreciation for. Black and white photography is the best--abstracts. Cameras are good to have around, but it gets kind of awkward when you're lugging around an SLR. Those are a little heavy.
...well besides the say goodbye to my family thing, and telling the people I love that I love them... well actually I think that the thing that will really catch up to all of us is what's after the "deathbed regrets".
I'll wish I had paid attention to what IS and ALWAYS will be important.
Though I like to excuse myself and tell myself that I'm "as good as I can get", I'm not. I've ignored God so many times. I keep trying to tell other people what their missing. But I'm one to talk... I don't have it all, like I like to think I do. What do I think I am, perfect?
All I know is, there's more than what's in front of me (thank God). I can only pray God will intervene and save me before I walk blindfolded off a cliff.
yeah... my regret would be what's right in front of me, that I never saw.
