I sometimes feel like my early youth was completely wasted by me. I feel like I passed on many opportunities or experiences that I am just now trying to recapture. Like watching "new" horror movies that I have never seen, instead of re watching my favorites for the hundredth time. I have found new favorites and I feel a tinge of jealousy for my old self, because he never saw them and would have loved them. Though clearly not all the movies are good there are some real stinkers too LOL. Also by trying to read at least 40 new books a year for that last several years it annoys me that I could have read a lot of these a long time ago, especially the classics that I am just now getting into. For instance - One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest, The Amityville Horror, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, among others. I guess the old sayings are true - Hind sight is 20/20, You never know what you have till its gone, Youth is wasted on the young!!!! BUT at least I'm doing it now and who knows maybe I can catch up if I try hard enough, but don't hold your breath!!!!
