Post 1: Spring 2011

Hello All,

For this post, describe one mistake you have made in your life. The mistake could be significant or minor; it's up to you.

For example, I failed my first driving test: on the three-point turn, I backed into the curb, and the DMV evaluator said, "That's it. You've just failed the test; you might as well turn around and go back now." In retrospect, it's true that I wasn't a very good driver, but the three-point turns were the least of my driving deficiencies . . . Hopefully, I'm better now.

One day I was in high school and just brought these new jeans with this fresh white T shirt. Come to find out our hallways just got painted at school and I'm leaning against the wall talking to my girlfriend at the time acting all cool and when I moved I had paint all down my back and all over the back off my jeans. smh!

I have done many mistakes in my life, but one mistake that haunted me for awhile was not reading the textbook assigned for a particular course and due to that mistake my g.p.a. dropped---this class was the only class that counted towards my g.p.a.

A mistake that I did was this spring break. I screamed at my mom, when all she was doing was reminding me to do my fafsa for the upcoming quarter. I realized that it was wrong, because she was trying to keep me in mind to do the fafsa.

I've always been a planner. When things don't go the way I planned, I don't like it and I try and mold it into what I want it to be. The biggest mistake I ever made in my entire life was withdrawing from UC Santa Barbara. I wasn't used to the environment and atmosphere of the school... I know I could have adjusted... Once I got sick (nerve damage), I decided to come home and not return... Now, I realize how much I miss UCSB... It was a beautiful place to learn and a beautiful place to be. I plan on returning. I didn't work that hard to leave it in the past.

A few years ago, I was so angry and frustrated with my current situation, so I slammed my phone on the floor. It obviously broke. My dad, the provider of the cell phone, refused to provide another for a while.. After a painfully, annoyingly lecture; that I deserved, I suppose.

So apparently, just a few seconds ago I made another mistake. I forgot to sign the comment I had just posted. The broken cellphone comment was also mine.

One mistake I have made in my life is that I never got along with my sister. Next month she is getting married and she’s going to move in with her husband. So I wish we would have gotten along sooner.

One of the longest lasting mistake I made was listening and doing what others wanted for me and not what I wanted. Eventually I lost what I really needed; my true happiness.

I failed the driving test twice, the first time for not be patient in respecting the right-of-way of a vehicle, the second time for being too patient waiting for a vehicle. Biggest mistake I ever made, especially because I'm a pretty good driver,

I made the mistake of focusing on my social life, rather than my education. BIG MISTAKE!!

One day my family and I went to the beach. My dad loves scaring all of us while on the peer, pretending he'll throw us over. It's childish, yet it frightens me. So I figured if I pretend i'm texting he won't pick me up because I might drop it. My idea failed. He grabbed me and as I was tugging and pulling away, my phone went flying into the ocean. It was my first day with it. Now my phone stays in the car.

One of the mistakes that sticks out in my mind was the one time I let a buddy convince me that he was fine to drive after we had been out drinking. I failed as a friend to take his keys away from him, though he didn't get into an accident and hurt someone, he did get pulled over for DUI. I still feel responsible for it, and have since learned my lesson and refuse to let any of my friends talk me into letting them drive themselves after being out drinking. Yes, it has led to some hurt feelings and black eyes, but no one has gotten into a drunk driving accident or received a DUI since.

A mistake I will never forget is when I poured out my true feelings in a text message and sent it to the wrong person. I said some really deep confidential things, so I was really embarrassed.

A mistake that I make every quarter is making myself a very strong coffee during midterms and finals. I hardly drink coffee, but when I do , it effects me in a good way at frist by making me focused but by the time Im taking the exam, I get Anxious and cannot focus anymore!

I've made many mistakes, but my biggest regret has to be my entire attitude in high school. I had the "just do what it takes to get by" attitude and now I'm at CSUB, instead of Cal Poly or UCSD.

My most recent mistake was forgetting to call my 2nd mom when I was in Bishop this past weekend. She's going to chew on me awhile for that one. Best to lead with flowers as a 'sorry.'

I failed to fill up my tank of gas and as a result I ran out of gas in the middle of Bakersfield and McFarland.

One time that i failed was when i was taking a test for pre-cal. this was very hard for me because i was always a straight A student. I never showed my parents this grade, but if i did they would be disappointed. I eventually received an B in the class so i guess it was alright.

One miskate that i constenly do is speak befor i think. I always say the wrong thing at the worng time i alway tend to speek my mind. It's like a natural refex. As a child my mother used to tell me if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all. Yea, she got that from Babi the dear movie. In my mind it does not sound bad, but right when it leaves my lips i know i should have not said it.

Mistakes that are most common for me is waiting to the last minute to do big assignments. I always regret it after because my grade isn't so good.

One of the mistakes that I made was wetting my hair and then going out into the rain. The rainy breezy weather, mixed with my damp hair was not a good combination because shortly after that I got sick.

In my senior English class we were talking about a song by the Red Hot Chili Peppers called Slow Cheetah. She asked us about the line "she bought it with her pay" and what it means. I thought it was about the young girl paying for plastic surgery, but it was actually about the girl buying cocaine.

Then i was in debt AGAIN! This time I had to pay back all my debt myself:(!!

One of the biggest mistakes I've ever made was when I missed a race at one of the biggest swim meets of the season. I was warming up in the another pool that was kind of far away from the competition pool. During my actual warm up, the race took off without me. This caused my coach is take my out of the meet entirely.

in 2009 the biggest mistake I made was letting my job slip away. I knew I was going to be laid off soon due to the recession, and didn't bother to try and keep it. It was a great paying job. I was a little immature and didn't realize at the time how good of a job it was.
