when you make a mistake, how long do you regret it for? I regret stuff I did and said when I was 7. Seriously, like I still look back on that, and am like "Shit, I hope nobody remembers that, that was so stupid of me." And how long do you remember other people's screw-ups for? This is the more pressing question. I don't remember them for that long, but maybe that's just me.
