DIA bought options for Sept 30 expiry

Hi Everyone, Im new to this forum and Im happy to have joined. I am usually the contrarian, and shorted the dow successfully back in February to May options and sold early. After this whole week of the 1000 point drop that I was pissed I didn't keep shorting I decided to buy some beaten down sept 30 calls for DIA friday afternoon.
I bought 4 172 calls and 3 173 calls.
Am i going to be kicking myself in the ass on this one?
Should I have picked longer expirations? Anyways, just would like the dialogue and the conversation to go forward in addition for educational purposes.

Thanks for reading this post and all replys welcome!
