Regrets, he's had a few

You'd think someone calling himself the Complete and Total Loser would have a longer list of regrets than he does, but he really has just two, though they have defined his life and always will.
They are:
1. Not figuring out girls, which would have led to figuring out women. The Loser wishes he'd summoned up an iota of courage as a teen and gone to a few parties so he could meet girls. (He went to an all boys school from third grade on.) He'd have said dumb things, sure, but he'd have learned from them and maybe have kissed a girl before he was 21 and be married now at 52.
2. Not figuring out what he wanted to do in life before he was in his 30s. There are those who make career changes much later than that and have great careers, but they are talented and smart. With the Loser's mild abilities he'd have had to start earlier to succeed in the only job he ever really liked, which was journalism.
In this video, 50 people talk about their regrets. The Loser found it via wimp.com, which he thinks is a thousand times better than Youtube, which is like sifting through a boxcar of newspapers, books and magazines to find something you're interested in reading.
