I'm not saying I have any regrets per se, but there are probably some thing that I would have done a bit differently.
I think a lot of people do
dream of being teenagers again. It's a "grass is always greener" scenario. When you're a teenager, you want the freedom, money, responsibilty, coolness, etc. of being an adult (at least, a twenty-something adult). When you're an adult, and you have kids, a mortgage, credit card bills, stressful work, and so forth, you often dream of being that carefree teenager again.
