Listening to my parents and majoring in something else, instead of going to medical school.
If I were you, I would rehome Zeeva. A GSD deserves to be the joy of her owner's life, not a regret. And you deserve to be happy and free.

|pyratemom||Most of my regrets are for things that could have turned out differently but I didn't do something that would have made it change. My first GSD - I was 17 and when my mom realized how big he would be she made me get rid of him but I was lucky enough to find him a forever home with a good guy who loved him til the end. My first marriage - if I only knew then what I know now, never would have married him. Second marriage - same, but still here trying to make it work. Very few of my regrets include animals. I've always tried to do the best for my animals, even when living in tents and cars (except for the one dog my ex stole from my car and killed). My animals always come first and that will never change and I will never regret that.|

No big ones.
A lot of little ones on the level of "wow that was a stupid thing I said in the elevator five years ago."

I regret not applying myself much more in school and then turning down college. At the time I graduated, you looked for a stable factory job somewhere. It's just what you did. We were on the tale end of this. You could make a decent living and retire with.......gulp.......a pension plan. But I don't know really if a degree would have helped anything but my physical wellbeing by the time I retire. But it's too late to cry over what could have beens.

On a more personally level, my teenage young adult life is one big embarrassment reel. I did a lot of things I'm not proud of because I was desperate for the approval of others. I've come to terms with it and am pretty darn happy with where my life ended up (living in my paradise with the most awesome husband ever), but it's still pretty painful to think about.[/QUOTE]
Uh..sounds like you lived my life. At least we grew up and matured. I regret not going to college when I was young, but started going part time 3 years ago, and really enjoy it. A few more classes and I'll have my associates degree at age 56.

Not staying with molecular biology/neurobiolgy in college and going the medical route. Actually, if I could do it all again, I'd have gone to be a radiation tech... half the debt and a healthy income... although I'm not sure I'd be happy in anything but research.

No regrets. Plenty of life lessons though.
Don't mean to be dismissive or flippant here, but regrets are self created and of no use really.
