it was a piece of crap yamaha but still it was my first guitar and yet i feel no sorrow. i had it leaning against a wall in my room and it tipped over and the headstock just busted off. now i have no acoustic guitar. what should i do? (and dont say commit suicide cause most likely ill muck that up too)

Nothing a bit of woodglue can't fix!

Here's a novel idea, might sound like I'm being sarcastic but how about buying another guitar?

It's definitely fixeable. It probably isnt worth fixing though. a new guitar sounds like a good idea, lol.

alright, new guitar, good plan. now all i need is the money. is it even worth it to buy a guitar under $100? or are they all pretty crappy? cause if i get a new one its gonna be cheap. oh heres a question, how much do you think guitar center would give me for a 30w Spider 3 amp? its in as good of condition as amps get.

its not worth buying n acoustic for under $100. Around $250 is where they're worth buying.

If you lean your guitar up against the wall so they fall over and the headstocks get knocked off then yes it probably is worth it to spend under $100

You get what you pay for and that will be an el cheapo beginners/practice guitar, the only thing that will vary is the shape/colour.

Here's two from another thread from someone looking for a guitar in the same range.

But a new guitar. Patch up the old one as best you can to make it presentable, then nail it to the wall as an art object, and also an ever present reminder of what NOT to do in the future.
