In all likelihood, you’ll never meet a person who wouldn’t fix some part of their past if they could, even if it’s only to make a small change. It isn’t a sign of something wrong with them, or a slight against them; just that they’re like us, and equally as prone to accidental bridge-burning. Screwing up is universal.
The theme of “Do-overs” is going to be focusing largely on these moments. Some of the coming stories will feature second chances to go back and change mistakes that were made. But most of the time, this isn’t quite what happens, and NYU students will look back in hindsight in 20/20.
Because chances are, you’ll never meet anyone who wouldn’t change a part of their past if they could, even if it’s only to fix something minor.
