    Default Mistakes..?

    All fired up from my post in the CAT-thread lol

    What have been some mistakes you have made and have you learnt from them?

    2 of the many of mine.

    -Wagging & getting caught. I learnt from that NOT to get caught :P Okay, jokes, I learnt from that hectic experience not to wag lessons :/

    -Sitting on the hangers (Handlebars) of an inexperienced friends BMX bike going down a fast hill. When the brakes didnt work, we missed a speeding car by a few inches (My foot touched the back of the car as it passed) and the bike plunged over a gutter (The deep ones with the big pipe in the side). After me flying and landing on the rocks with my leg in an akward position, and her being dragged by the bike along the rock edges, recieving HUGE grazes and her bellybutten ring being pulled out,
    I learnt NEVER to ride on the hangers of an inexperienced rider and only on flat roads....

    What have been some mistakes YOU have learnt from?

    Too many to list over time. I feel mistakes and learning or not learning from them are there to mold us into the human beings we become. (wonder when we do become them, I am still evolving, probably still evolves till the day we die.)

    Ive learnt not to use an acne scrub my acne covered friend recommended....... if it worked, the friend would not have ance! All it did was create a massive breakout on my already clear skin. (For those wondering why someone with clear skin would buy an ance scrub.... I thought that it would prevent those annoying once-a-month pimples)

    Oh DoG, where do I start...I've made so many mistakes along the way I could write a book, MOST of them I've learnt from, SOME of them I haven't (until it happens again lol). I guess the question is more Do I Regret the Mistakes? I'd have to say mostly no I don't, that's what makes us human - but yes I have a one or two that I regret, sadly to do with trusting people I thought were friends. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    Ah well, my nickname isn't "Calamity" for nothing!

    I think I'll win this week.

    1) Made the mistake of thinking I was too healthy to catch the kids flu. Oh how wrong was I!

    2) Made the mistake of leaving all my snotty tissues on the bed whilst going to the bathroom. How on earth could Logan want to eat them is beyond me?

    3) Made the mistake of putting new pillows on the spare bed. Madethe mistake of taking my eyes off Logan for one minute!

    1. Poor you, hope you feel better soon!

    2. I have learnt not to leave snotty tissues around, if they don't get eaten, they get shredded, and it's not nice to pick up all those little soggy remnants.

    3. I've worked it out DA - Logan is Pillow-ist!

    I made/am making/will continue to make the mistake of putting others before myself only to be walked all over and taken advantage of every time. I'll never learn my lesson there.

    Ok and now to some light hearted ones

    - Made the mistake of pushing a bogged car from directly behind the left rear wheel. (result - Covered from head to toe in mud about 10 meters away from the one and only exit which EVERY single car full of people with cameras drove past). So I've learnt never to push a bogged car.

    - Made the mistake of thinking it would be a good idea to play football in the house (result - a broken collectable item and a hole in the wall). Learnt to keep sports outside

    - Made the mistake of 'dinking' (riding on the back of -) on my friends dirtbike which wasnt really meant for 2 ppl. (result - very sore and sorry for a few days!) Learnt not to do that again! haha

    - Made the mistake of having my shoes untied once in a McDonalds. Tripped over, fell into two chairs making as much noise as possible causing EVERYONE to look over, jumped up so fast I dont even think I touched the floor! I learnt to ALWAYS have my shoes tied!

    And so so many more
