Something you wish you had done in your life/ something you wish you hadn't done in your life
I have a confession to make. Sometimes I wish that I had had another kid. The reason for this is simply that I wish SG was able to grow up with a sibling. She'd be a great big sister. But I feel like it's too late for that now. She's almost 8 and it just wouldn't be the same. Plus, I think that if I had a baby at any point during dissertation hell I'd probably just cash in my chips and quit school. But yes, being that I grew up with siblings, I feel like she's missing out. And I hate that she's my only shot at grandkids. I love the idea of a house full of a big family. Oh well, when I had the chance, I couldn't stomach the thought of going through childbirth and babies all over again. I didn't have the amnesia that other women have, I just couldn't wait for her to be old enough to have a conversation with.
Okay, and something I wish I hadn't done in my life? Given up dancing. When I was younger the only I wanted to be in life was a dancer. It consumed all my waking hours. When I got older, I decided, for a number of different reasons to quit. What I wish is this, I wish that I had listened to to my high school instructor who told me to pursue modern dance instead of ballet, that was a stupid choice. And I wish that I had pursued choreography. I had talent for it and I squandered it. Simply out of fear, really. Many days go by where I wish that I still had that opportunity.
