Maybe your ghost experience left you physic as well, I'll leave it at that. At least I tried the college thing, I still think it is the right choice for many people who are above average intelligence but I don't think I was completely cut out for it. I made good grades but math and science were not easy for me, maybe I should have rethought the engineering career. I did exel at social studies but there is no money in that. Edit: Like Micah, I regret not learning a skill, I mentioned I left technical school a second time because I was not getting any hands on experience, I used to be pretty good at troubleshooting circuit boards as well as soldering surface mount components and spoting very small mistakes but that is so far back in my past I have lost all skills there. Other than painting ( walls and trim, not art) and gardening I am not good with my hands, I wish I could build a house or my own home theater from the ground up like some of you here but I wouldn't know where to start. I think some of those skills are not learned, you either have them or not. I regret thinking about this now, the regrets are rushing back, ahh well!
