    If you could change one aspect about your childhood what would it be? Just hop into the Delorean big_smile

    And to contribute to my own question, I'd kiss Reba Ashkar during my sixth grade dance...Just saying...

    I would get involved in more sport. I now realize the value of it but I'm stuck in my ways. I love to go fishing but that's it as far as sport is concerned. I suppose I could throw in bush walking but that really is it. I'm not part of any football tribe and this at times makes me an outsider even among family.

    I would have loved to have done Woodwork and Metalwork properly at school. To begin with we had the courses but not the teachers. Others got by learning at home or wherever but I didn't. When we had to choose between the two I had no idea what to choose. Then we got teachers for these subjects at a time when we had this black hole of six months of doing nothing. I couldn't cope.  Plus the teachers connected these subjects with math and I HATED math. Now if they had connected these subjects to art and design that would have made more sense to me and would also have been a back way into understanding and even learning how to appreciate  math. Since then I have worked in a number of industries and don't mind getting my hands dirty for good pay. I still mind some idiot putting math on some unreachable pedestal.

      Woodworking and metal working is pretty interesting because it combines engineering with art.  I'll agree with you on that.  And since you brought up school, I'll add shop class too, or working on cars!  Thanks for posting your answer!

    One aspect I would change.. who my family was...hahaha...
    Seriously most people would change at least one , with the idea that their life would have been different . However regardless of what we think we would have changed doesn't constitute that our life would be for the better, and could possibly have ended up worse.
    As for myself, I wish I had stood my ground in all matters regarding my professional medical career and delved deeper into the Research and Development aspect of Medical Technology. Hopefully my G-C will fulfill my dream..
    Very interesting question.. I look forward to reading thoughts from others...

      As the saying goes,"You can choose your friends, but not your family."  I have a good relationship with mine, but not so much when I was younger.  As we grew older, we grew wiser and became much more compassionate towards one another.  Thank you!
