I think I would play just because there is so much people are ungrateful for I mean yeah I could have worked harder but I think it's important to love everyday and have no regrets cuz your life is gone before you know it

All work and no play makes jack a dull boy ...

Smallbiz- I'm sorry for you. You must be very strong to face the world everyday after what you're going through.

@BroncosRN: your hard work will likely pay off. Try and find or make some time to have fun too or you may burn out. Generally though, you'll be better off with a degree than without in the long run.

I spend so much time playing, why not see the the other side of life?

I worked all my life in jobs with no retirement plan. The last few years (I'm now 68) I invested everything I could manage in GM stock and real estate. I lost $2 million on my GM stock when the Gov't took it away from me and my real estate is about worthless.
I can't retire now as I'm broke!!!

I had a habit, especially when I was younger, of taking the easy road - just doing enough to get by. I have been learning to apply myself, and enjoying the grand feeling of applying myself, and enjoying the feeling of hard work and a job well done.

So what we get drunk? So what we smoke weed? We're just having fun. We don't care who sees. So what we go out? Thats how it's supposed to be! Living young, and wild, and free!

Work harder. By now I'd being doing an architecture internship instead of working to get in architecture school.

Work my home needs a major cleaning. If I had worked harder in school I'd be much better off.

04/16/12 11:31 am

I would've gone to school earlier...

@prterri, sad to say that's life.

04/16/12 11:06 am

Work experience, even 13 years in management, doesn't mean as much as it used to. I have worked with some colossally stupid college graduates who got paid as much as me with zero experience and no idea how to run a business. Unfortunately, employers place more value on the degree than the people.

04/16/12 11:02 am

I would like to have made different choices like finishing college, but I didn't finish because I was promoted to management at my job. Now that I'm in my 30's the lack of a degree is making a big difference in what jobs I'm considered for. I wish I had played harder and finished school.

04/16/12 10:34 am

that I have been diagnosed with since start college, it's just a joy. I despise every person who said these would be the best years of my life.

04/16/12 10:34 am

So far in college ALL I have done is work. Friends back home are all having a great time going out every weekend, and I'm away at school locked away in my dorm or library studying. I couldn't be more miserable, but it's the only way I can do well. Love the generalized anxiety disorder and depression

I wish I knew now what I knew then... man, I would be a millionaire. I would have switched degrees and gone into something that always seems to be hiring.

I worked hard through high school and college, making academics my life. I definitely should have played harder back then.

work, because I'm scared of what "playing" more might bring

After working really hard since I was 15, I would play a lot more. I didn't really start getting into outdoor sports until I was in my early 30's. I really regret missing out in my 20's, but glad I found my way before it was too late. Playing makes you live longer, healthier and happier.

Work. Gotta save up for retirement.

She came once then i saw her face. I didnt know it was the job that i lost to her, all she did was play and play while i was working in the bathroom stall. Why did this happen to me?

Some where in harder at my music/band thus possibly getting signed (although we're not discounting that yet!) which leads to fun aka play. Even though it'd be a job, it'd be the best job in the world

04/15/12 8:34 pm

Work harder. I spend half of my life procrastinating. So if I work harder, then I can do the things I want to more :D

04/15/12 8:25 pm

I work as hard as I can and that's mostly what I do. Wish I could work harder.

04/15/12 8:22 pm

worked too hard to have fun? sad

04/15/12 8:21 pm

I work hard In things I believe and and taught myself language and other knowledge of importence that my school wouldn't teach me

04/15/12 8:14 pm

Before college I wasted a whole year, calling it a sabbatical, idling.

I wished I worked harder as a kid to learn new things because I can't even remember the fun things I did. It was such a waste.

Work. Even though I did pretty well in high school, I could have done better. Also, I have too many bad habits when it comes to working.

04/15/12 7:29 pm

I'm having way too much fun. I'm not complaining, just being honest.
