    with sports canceled and life grinding to a halt. let's talk about the biggest regrets in life that we have and what we could of done for lack of a better term.

    I'll start.

    I wish that I would of gone somewhere with the skill that I had acquired. I had dreams of being a popular hip-hop producer, I was always told that my beats were better than the actual rhyming or delivery and I had hoped to learn more and produce something that would of defined my whole career. I would of gone to venues, met up with famous artists but thanks to the coronavirus everything has come to a halt and life is going bye bye.

    Additionally, I wish I wouldn't of obsessed on pointless BS like drama online and trying to be popular. Now that life is going to transition to the internet, I feel like I've wasted time trying to fit in to a society that is now dead. No sports, no politics, nothing except a Mad Max like reality where dominant groups control society and I feel like since I've got autism, I feel like I'm truly fucked in this reality, like... how am I supposed to get people to know me if they can't feel me through the text you know.

    Your turn, please be as real as possible. It's an honest request, I want to read your soul here, not an internet persona.

    Good question. I have many regrets...
    1. I regret not going travelling/backpacking around the world when I was 18-22
    2. I regret not saving money to buy a mortgage when I was young, even of I didn't live in the house
    3. I regret not investing money on the stockmarket years ago

    There are a lot of things I regret but the one that hit me the most was that I couldnt see the signs that my father was seriously ill (pancreatic cancer).
    If I would have told him more often that he should go see the doctor, maybe he would be still alive today.

    I regret..... Shitting in a poo bag, posting it halfway through a friendly neighbours postbox, and then setting it on fire. If only I could rewind back a whole 48 hours, i definitely wouldn't have set it on fire.

    I regret not studying aboard in college. I had an opportunity to do a semester at sea one summer - and almost did it - but I got an internship at the hall of fame in Cooperstown instead. Fun and love changing still but going port to port would’ve been dope

    I really regret not visiting my dad on Christmas two years ago as I had planned. He died in a car accident 3 days later. I literally regret it every day.

    I regret to inform OP that we are not in a post apocalyptic world and he can still chase his dream of being a music producer who is popular online

    online isn't the same. while I am forming a plan of providing live concerts online, it's just... where's the fun in doing shit online when meeting up in real life is funner?

    if the vaccine they're testing for the coronavirus isn't at least 60% effective then well... say goodbye to concerts and events and all that jazz. it's going to be missed dearly, it's not post-apocalyptic but still, the effects are being felt everywhere.

    I wish I'd traveled more in my early 20s and I wish I'd stuck with doing freelance video editing work because I miss it (and it pays way more than writing lol). Luckily these are both things I can pick back up.

    For the most part I don't have any hardcore regrets cuz the way I think about it, if I had stuck with video editing for example I'd probably be wishing I'd stuck with writing right now lol. I wanted to write more than edit in the moment so I stuck with that and it's the right choice because it was what I wanted to do. It's all part of your growth/the process in figuring life out.

    I'm not afraid of any virus but apparently in California. Events are getting canceled left and right and even the theaters might close eventually. Therefore if the virus isn't eliminated then going out might be a thing of the past.

    I don't know if the spread of Coronavirus is different in Australia, and yes... maybe everybody else IS overreacting but here in the USA, everything is closing up stop and nobody can stop it unless there is a vaccine to help mitigate the spread.

    even Taco Bell's not letting anybody in their resturants anymore, it's all drive-thru/delivery now.

    and what, you think it will last forever? your defeatism in your posts is embarrassing.

    where is peoples optimism? does it not exist in the current year?

    I can't really do anything at this point, all anybody can do is wait for a vaccine that works and that might take 1-2 months.

    EDIT: I don't know what will happen in 1-2 months, we'll see. Future hasn't been written yet.

    What? Dude, you f--king banned me one time just because you didn’t like my political opinion. And I think it was you who banned me for accidentally calling a few people the N word when I negged them. In fact, you banned several members for a day or 2 whenever you couldn’t handle a debate. I’m sure Perry would also confirm this.
