Like decisions or wrong choices you've made in your life that you're actually glad you made. For me, it was not revising for GCSE exams, specifically maths. I failed maths (with an E :S ), didn't get into the course I initially wanted to do, got held back 2 years to get a BTEC level 2 in maths (equivalent to a C in GCSE) and although it gave me a lot of stress wondering if I'm going to pass Maths this time round, what I'm going to do next etc. it gave me a lot of time to figure out what I really want to me doing in life, where I see myself in 10 years and gave me motivation to actually do something about it, looking back, I think it made me a much better person than I was say 5 years ago. In hindsight, I'm kinda glad I didn't pass maths because it gave me a lot of time to think about what I really want to be doing in life. Before, I had zero clue what I wanted to do for a job and just decided to go into IT because I knew about computers - But now, I'm on track to work in the games industry as a games artist, which I'm really happy about.

How about you guys?

I sort of think you'd come to the same conclusion even if you ended up passing.

Not really, I would be going to university in September if I passed, I only really started getting interested in getting a job in the games industry last September, before that I had no idea what I wanted to do.

Sorry I was thinking you didn't take general courses yet. I forgot the way they do it in your country is better. I know that when I was your age I was freaking out and it took me forever to understand what I really wanted to do. Way longer than you. lol (too long)

No worries I like the way England does education, buut some of the colleges here reaaally suck, ours got evaluated by an education inspection company and we got a freaking inadequate This will be my 3rd time doing a course here, last 2 times was IT and graphics and I was really freaking out because I failed 2 of my resit exams >_< probably guess my excitement and relief when i found out I passed :D
Same, stopped freaking out like 2 days ago when I found out I passed, just so glad I'm progressing

Hm... I have a terrible memory, so I'll just go with a boring answer! All of them! Sure, I probably regret most of them to an extent, but they have formed what I am today! And for that, I'm thankful.

My best mistake isn't that important as yours(Congrats btw) but im still glad of not to having played one last song in a gig last year. it started to rain so badly that if we had played that last song all our instruments and amplifiers would have ruined.

Not a mistake as such but my son wasn't planned or anything, and he's the best thing that has ever happened and will ever happen to me.
