Mechanical drawing in my freshman year was so instrumental in my teaching career. Often I would have math colleagues who had abysmal skills in making illustrations on the blackboard. For me it was easy.
Another was typing.
If we don't count our blessings We are just wasting our time
I sure do have regrets. My biggest was not to pursue my musical involvement of becoming a classical clarinetist in a symphony orchestra.I played the instrument for 7 years and than quit which I hate myself for doing this all my life.
I was a second or first chair flautist in middle school. This was after playing the trumpet the previous year. The next year we moved to a new city and a kid there just had to fight me on the way home from school. I gave my brother my flute and proceeded to kick this kids butt. The next morning I looked for my flute and asked my brother where it was. We raced 2 blocks over to where we had been during the fight, in a tractor trailer parking lot for trucks hauling produce. It was gone. My brother had put it on the bumper of a truck and in the excitement we forgot it. Thus ended band for me. We could not afford another Gemeindhart flute.
I studied violin from the 4th grade thru Sr. year...and all of that stigma that goes with being a kid and playing violin is true...it happened to me, there were times when I wish I could play a real band insturment...but then again I fooled them all....for the past 50 years I have made a good living playing the violin professionally ...guess I got the last laugh
"Like buying Apple stock when it was $8 a share. "---
Oh, man! You just had to mention that one!! And I regret having listened to my financial advisor who talked me out of that because he and everyone else was convinced Apple would be bankrupt in less than a year.
