If I had my whole life to live over again...
Honestly, only one thing. And that, is this: Back in high school, when I had the opportunity, I would have studied Latin.
That's it. Latin. The only thing I would change. That is not to say that I have lived a life without mistake or misstep. Only, that I don't believe changing those mistakes or missteps would have resulted in a substantially different outcome.
I learned something from every broken heart, every melodrama, every missed opportunity. The only thing I learned from not taking Latin, was French, and that has not been useful.
Had I taken Latin, I know for certain that I would be smarter. I would have gotten higher SAT scores, I would be better at the NY Times Crossword Puzzle, and I might, someday, if she were very tired, beat my mother at Scrabble.
So, is there anything you would change?
