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!
