Urban Dictionary Word of the Day: May 22nd, 2011
****ing Retrospect: A phrase used to describe the agonizing frustration of realizing that you did something you regret, and wanting to do it differently but realizing it after-the-fact. This typically occurs about 5 minutes later but the realization of such can occur years later.
This is probably one of the worst feelings people can get. That realization that you ****ed up bad, but can't go back to fix it now. I ****ed up super-hard last night, but I'll post my story after I've heard a bit from you guys.

I went drinking at a cabin telling my mother I was at a friends house, got really drunk, and slept with my brother's ex-girlfriend. Then I lost service during the night, so when my mother couldn't reach me she called my friend's house. I wasn't there, she went into a panic, and when I came home I found out that I'm now grounded until I move in about a month, and I can't hang out with any of my friends at all before I leave them. Pretty much the worst situation I've ever been in, if you can believe that.

****ing retrospect.

So Pit, what was the most regret you've ever had about an experience? What was the experience, and how long did it take for you to see you did something horribly, horribly wrong?

how does it work?
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

When I said something in the Pit and everyone hated me for it, then I realised I didn't care and forgot by the next day.

One time I quit my job and got rid of my earthly possessions because I thought the rapture was happening soon.

There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I often randomly remember embarassing moments of my life that could easily have been avoided. I am haunted by these sudden bouts of shame and regret.

I regret not having been more confident in school.
I regret not having learned to manage my time properly and to defer gratification.
I regret the several incidents where I've been called stupid by bus drivers.

Not the worst experience, but certainly the most recent one.

I just sat an exam where it asked me to find the stationary points of a function. I walked out the exam 30 minutes early after finishing every question on the paper like a boss, and then screamed "OH FUCK" in the middle of a bus as I realised I only found half the bloody points I was supposed to.

I'm still agonising about it 2 days later.

Not going for it. Whatever it is. Sometimes I've just been too chickenshit to go after something I want (like a girl), or to just do something. Or I've been too lazy to go out and had to deal with the amazing stories my friends told for weeks afterward

I probably should've been a lot more like you this weekend I think. Would've saved me a lot of trouble.

Not going for the girl that I had no idea had a crush on me in high school(though it was so obvious). This retrospect happened after college

Though I kinda tried to after college(after the realization that I did have feelings for her)cause she was my best friend's sister so I saw her every other day or week.

Now I don't have best friend.

And she hates me.

Dammit.

I screamed, Ryan. In the middle of the bus. Everyone was looking at me, like

"Why is that short brown guy raging?"

And. I. Didn't.Even. Care.

I was that horrified.

Feeling you there. I did a case study a few weeks ago, realised a week after I submitted it that I didn't include one of my sources in the bibliography, but I cited it several times in the body. It was a paper that didn't need alot of external research, so I only used 6 sources all up. FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Also sat an exam a month or so ago. 50 marks. One of the question was worth 12 marks, so a fifth of the entire exam. The course coordinator decided to mix the third year problems we'd been doing with second year pricing models, which we hadn't looked at in a year. The sneaky bugger.

Aw, I fucking hate it when that happens, my stupid lecturers mix shit from other subjects in with theirs, and it's all I can do not to beat them to death with their own lecture notes

Bro, I am the unfied king of all awkward work-induced expressions.

- "Ryan ,you are in charge of our game's music!"
- *me tapping and humming to myself for a week

- "Ryan, you need to design the last 3 characters!"
- *me making various voices to try and create fitting character designs*

- "Ryan, the professors are complaining about XXX feature that completely contradicts what they initially wanted and requires at least 10 man-hours of coding to realise because the professors that want this change have never programmed anything in their life and have zero understanding of how much work it takes to make even the simplest thing work properly within a computer game."

Realising that I had put outdated analysis of a statue in my dissertation wasn't a major part of it though.

Usually whenever I think of a funny joke in my head, then I say it out loud and no one laughs.

Minus the school and busdrivers part, that.

I don't understand how you can be grounded.... Why not just, um, leave? You're moving in a month, they can't really do anything to you.
