In spite of some a handful of silly mistakes when it comes to my relationships with my exes, I don't have any regrets on that area of my life.
I do have 2 regrets about my studies.
I did relatively well and so I was in the Science stream. A couple of my class mates applied to be in the Commerce stream and I didn't. At that point of time, I didn't think much of my future and what career path I wanted to pursue. One big mistake...
I bombed in Chemistry, Physics & Add. Maths and barely surviving Biology. By the time I realised I was in the wrong stream, it was already too late. And so my Form 4 & Form 5 science teachers had a traumatic time educting me. Pity them....
Fortunately, I managed to do okay in SPM and went on to Form 6 and immediately I switched to Arts Stream. However, I still didn't know what I wanted to be. The ideas that popped out were lawyer, hotel management & human resource management.
Anyhow, I ended up in University of Sydney studying first accounting & human resource management. I found out that Accounting wasn't the subject I like so I asked for a transfer and then I discover a field of study I've never thought of before.
Why archeology, you may ask.... History is always one of my stronger subjects in school all the way to Form 6. I love to read history books so much that I usually finished reading my text books way before my history teachers could finish half of them. I am especially fascinated by the process of development of the world's civilizations and religions. So the idea did cross my mind to switch to archeology instead - it will be a pursue of passion. One thing held me back though.... what would I be doing as an archeologist?
Not sure how my dad would react if I were to tell him I wanted to be Indiana Looi, so I made the decision based on logic: I switch another area of interest and graduated with a degree in political science & industrial relations.
Even now, I'm still drawn by historical stuff and gf is amazed that I can recall a lot of things I've learned from history books. If only I could turn back time....
Do you have any regrets you wanna share?
