Some of you might not take this seriously, but when I was starting high school, or around that time, I thought it would be a good idea to go to a Hetalia meetup in my local area. I have no idea where or how I found out about it, but I thought it would be a good chance to meet some other anime fans, since it's really hard for me to even find friends in general to begin with.

Big mistake. HUGE. MEGA. TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

It was horrible. Half of the people there probably had no idea what the general concept of "hygiene" is, broken Japanese used like every minute, people "glomping" each other and just screaming during conversations, and we got kicked out of like two places because everyone was just being so obnoxious, there was barely any tact among these people or any respect, especially with lots of jokes about topics you shouldn't even touch with a 40-foot pole. Then we went to this person's house and it turned out the person running this meetup was my friend's older sister, so it was awkward to go to school after that weekend and be like "um so yeah I met your sister at a Hetalia meetup?"

Even worse, I dragged a close friend of mine to this because I didn't want to go alone and she was somewhat interested in Hetalia, and even to this day, I think she still kind of hates me for going to it. I apologized to her profusely, and even now, if we bring it up in conservation, I tend to feel really guilty over it.

I actually think after that meetup, that's the reason why I quit calling myself an anime fan for a long time because it became a point of embarrassment if anyone knew. Why I regret it so much is because I have problems putting myself out there to begin with and I totally had the opportunity on meeting new people, but it went so very horribly wrong with the wrong crowd...and tbh this was the only "huge mistake" in my life that's not personal enough to share on a forum, ha.

I think one mistake for me was not taking up sports when i was young. I wish I would've been more invested in basketball or baseball. Give me more reason to go outside and enjoy the fresh air. Make some friends out in the field, or court. I still try to this day to go out and play but i'm just not good.

I also wish I would've took school more seriously when I was still in high school. *Sigh* I could have avoid all of this work in college if i had thought of my future sooner!

I wish I hadn't been so selfconscious when I was younger, and up till now, and being more sociable and not as shy towards others. I regret that now, since I'm starting to get better at it now, compared to before.

And a mistake is that I should not have become addicted to Disney Channel and TV (cartoon) when I was younger, instead I should have developed my skills in those things I enjoy now, played outside or found out about anime earlier.

And the last mistake I remember (which isn't too personal) is that I chose the wrong subjects at first when I got into Gymnasium, I believe that is something close to high school.

So 3 mistakes (not too personal) through my life which could have change everything a lot. I think about it sometimes, what I would have been doing now if I didn't make those mistakes, but I'm here because of those, and right now it's going pretty well - for now, so it's not all bad

One of the worst mistakes I did was not going to my friend's birthday party. It was the last one he ever had.

Just seconds ago I fell asleep, my parents decided to get my ipad off me so it doesn't fall off my bed.
It was one of those sleeps where as I am not aware I'm sleeping so when I open my eyes it feels like a second.
Needless to say I closed my eyes looking at the ceiling and opened them with my parents above me.
I jumped a mile.............. Worst mistake ever, sure beats the time I thought it be fun to jump off my roof into a bin after seeing it on jackass

Becoming friends with the one i held so dear, then disappointing her and letting her down. Never said a word, and never saw each other after.

Besides that emotional stuff. Joining tumblr of course!

Beating a kitten, I don't know if it died or not, but the next day it was gone when I went to check. I wish it lived and still is, hopefully the injuries were temporary, kittens are strong, I hope it did.

This is about the only mistake I can think of, too.

Otherwise, for me, it's not so much mistakes as it is embarrassing thing I've done. And I hate thinking about those things:

Probably deciding that having a social life was more important than trying hard back in high school.

So when I think of my younger self:
