For two weeks I asked one person every day the same question: “If you could change one past event in your life, what would it be?”
For some strange reason, these past two weeks were even more difficult than the previous times. Usually people are extremely willing to participate in my project, however this time around, it took three or four people to actually get one person to agree to join in the project. Maybe it was just beginners luck for my first video. But hey, once again, I’m really pleased with the responses I got.
I thought it was particularly interesting with this set of answers that there was only 1 person out of probably the 25 people I asked that said, “I regret nothing in my life so I don’t think I’m the one to take part in this project.” I thought that more people wouldn’t have any regrets in life, but it turns out, people really have things that they would’ve done differently. This time around, I also started to pass out sheets of paper to the participants with the URL of this project. So if I asked you a question and you are watching yourself on video right now, I salute you and apologize for having an awkward conversation with you.
Check back on April 23rd for a new round of responses to a new question. If you have a suggestion for a future question leave a comment! I’ll be going to Florida for spring break so all you Floridians out there, you better watch out, because 14 Strangers is coming to you.
