    I'd never of done loans that I didn't know if job was gonna be back. I listened to union and I went with it.

    Dumb, dumb and dumb.

    Now got 4 yrs more of paying debt off.

    On a positive note:

    When its paid off I will be so proud and relieved.

    Got loads, all stemming from childhood and teenaged years.

    - Wish I pulled myself away from my problems at school and at home, to a library or something and doubled down on my GCSEs. I wish that I followed that all the way to a masters.

    - I wish I kept myself in shape. I used to be a thin, weak kid but I was a good runner at least. I started eating too much shit as a teenager and stayed on the console or PC playing games or watching porn. Developed many, deep red stretch marks on my body as a result that terrified me and shattered an already fragile ego. I only bathed and brushed my teeth once every week or so too.

    - Wish I never became addicted to pornography. I had big problems with it for over ten years, staying up all night, looking at porn for hours and edging for hours at a time, three or four times a night. I looked at some pretty extreme shit too, back in the day. A vile habit.

    - Wish that I passed my driving licence with dole money. I used to sign on and off whilst hermiting at my mothers and instead of giving her money, I’d spend it on video games and food. A driving licence would have been practical and I could have found a job, but it would have also been something to aim for.

    In my twenties, I wish that I used the little money that I saved up to travel, even if it was just city breaks on my own, here and there. I should have done more overtime to accomplish this.

    I wish that I found my girlfriend sooner. She really turned my life around.

    I wish I hadn’t spent so much of my life wishing that I was somebody else and being depressed and having morbid and suicidal thoughts. As far as I’m concerned, I lost a decade of my life to it.

    They were giving away TEN THOUSAND BITCOINS to anyone and everyone who wanted them when they first came out.

    That's 170 MILLION dollars... for FREE...

    Wish I had taken that CCNA class that was offered at my high school. Ended up taking a CCNA class at night school while working full time when I was 25 instead. Id probably be making double what I make now if I got into the industry straight out of college

    The major things I'd want to change are more like a range of behaviors I exhibited during certain periods of time than any one decision

    I was going to drop $5k on Bitcoin 2 years ago.

    A friend of mine who was embedded in the tech industry went out of his way to talk me out of it and I became convinced.

    He's now unemployed and my investment would now be worth hundreds of thousands.
