30 Days of Truth: Day 23

Day 23: Something you wish you had done in your life.

Seeing as how I am only 23 years young, I think it's pretty safe to say that I have mostly lived a life with no regrets. Because of today's topic, I want to do this again in 5-10 years or so, and see how my answers differ from today.

If I had to pick one thing that I probably should have done, it's simple, really:
I wish I had followed through with being recruited, and played basketball at Westminster College.

Upon looking at this site to find the links to the separate pages, I realized that the coach who recruited me isn't even on staff anymore, and hasn't been since what would have been my second year on the team. That means that I probably would have left when he did, because I really liked him a lot.

I don't really regret not going. I have made a home here in Norman, and I love how large the University is, even though I didn't love it at first. I just wish that I would have turned down the opportunity to play for the right reasons. I was listening with my head and not my heart at that point, and unfortunately made the decision not to go for other people.

I know now that if I had chosen that path over this one, I would have been awfully homesick. He guaranteed me that I most likely would not get to return home for Christmas. That's just not acceptable.

Plus, without me being here, I don't know that I would have made the amazing friends that I've made!


  1. Great post! I don't have many regrets either, but the college I went to, while being amazing, was fairly small. And if I missed out on one thing, it was being at a big college even if just for the football games, lol :) But, as you clearly see, choices are made for a reason, and it seems that you are just as happy, if not happier than you would be at the other University.
    PS - love your new signature (at least I think it is new :)).

  2. It looks like you made a wonderful decision! Your friends look great and I'm glad you are enjoying yourself! No regrets!! :-)

  3. Hey, i love this idea and am totally writing about it on my blog today! Thanks for sharing your story and photos!
