Friday night topic: The path not taken

— 7:11 PM on April 23, 2004

For this weekend's off-topic discussion, let's talk about the path we didn't take in life. I'm sure most of us have possible career paths, degree paths, relationship paths, or the like that we chose not to take. Looking back, sometimes we wonder whether we chose well. For me, my undergraduate and master's degrees in religious studies led to.. a career in IT, culminating in me running this website. I decided not to pursue a Ph.D. in theology and teach for a variety of reasons. No regrets—I'm very much enjoying this—but sometimes I wonder how things might have been.

What about you? What choices have you made that you look back on and wonder? Discuss.
