I'd like to make a thread about the stupid stuff you've done in the past that has made you a better person today.


Go.

Dropped off a psychology degree because I was more interested in languages. My dad was disappointed and my mum told me I'd only ever be able to work in Tescos.

Now I have a 2.1. b.a. hons in Linguistics and English Language. I can still only find work in Tescos though

About three years ago, to start smoking. I would be plagued by illness such as tonsillitis but I would claim it had nothing to do with the smoking.

I've quit now and am getting healthier by the day with constant running.

When I walked up to my teacher to ask her a question instead of putting my hand up, way back in primary school on my first day. One of the other kids shouted at me and told me I need to put my hand up and wait, and I pretty much got scared and started avoiding everybody for the rest of the day.

Anyway, this may have snowballed a bit, and led to me being the fairly anti-social person I am today. Of course, this could be complete bullshit. Who knows?

When it comes down to it though, I still fucked up. What kind of a jerk must I have been to not put my hand up?

I'm afraid to flirt with girls. That little flaw got me a girl way out of my league. She said that I was "different" because she can tell when most guys like her. She said I was a challenge for her becasuse she couldn't tell if I really liked her or not

Similar to Mistress Ibanez, I dropped out of a German and Modern Irish course and pretty much went "fuck it, I'm going to Germany."

And that turned out to be awesome.

It's a true story, and it's entirely possible in a chaos-theory type of way it led to me being less social than most people.

Upon reading the opening post again however, I realise you wrote 'made you a better person'. So it's entirely irrelevant.

Not playing soccer in high school, it led me to the college where I am now rather than getting an athletic scholarship somewhere else. Going to this college then led me to contract into the Army and get a full scholarship through them. And I still get to play soccer, granted it's not at the playing level I could've, I'm very content.

GOD DAMN IT, I just don't learn.

Off to iron my fingers as punishment. I'll have to put my hand up to ask my mum for permission to borrow the iron though.

Stopped playing football and started playing guitar, considering how my school's team is filled with douchebags I'd be one of them by now.

Upper second class, it's the second-highest mark. I suppose you could equivocate it to getting a B.

Went out with a girl who, despite being stunningly beautiful, had no friends.

I learnt that the reason some people have no friends isn't always because they're 'misunderstood,' or 'the world won't give them a chance.' Sometimes there's a very good reason that nobody likes them.

7th-11th grade esentially were 5 giant year-long mistakes on my part, but because of them, my senior year was great, I am the person I am now, and have the friends I have now, all becuase the previous quarter of my life sucked.

Making a UG account and going to the pit

Same, except I didn't venture into the Pit until September 2009, even though I joined UG in 2007

OT, I told one of the guitarists I'm subscribed to on Youtube I was considering an MG for a new amp (boy was I stupid ). She (yes, it's a girl, but she mostly plays pop punk and some hardcore music) told me I'd be making a HUGE mistake if I got one (she was right too), and since then I've become quite the tone purist (and a gear enthusiast, no less ). (No, I didn't get the amp )

Yeah that's right, a girl showed me up on what is a good amp and what is not. Don't hate
