    Hey all,

    I was taking a small break from work and I came across this article. I found it to be really interesting and inspirational :

    Code:
    http://elitedaily.com/life/the-20-mistakes-you-dont-want-to-make-in-your-20s/
    I have already done most of the mistakes that are mentioned in that and I regret most of them. Some of the mistakes, I regret everyday day morning I wake up.

    Read it and if you haven't done those mistakes yet, make sure you don't in the future too.

    Cheers!

    Yeah me too, especially the piggy bank part. I should have saved when I was banking. Well, like they say experience is the best teacher.

    There is a post about buying sneakers, i am guilty of that too . I bought one for $200 , although its a really good pair of sneakers it wasn't necessary. :(

    That's a good article. Looks like I have not committed any mistake from those 20. I am 19 years old at the moment and I will remember all of these.

    Thank you OP, really good read. Now I have a reason when someome ask me why I don't have a girlfriend. Is so important to keep up the business line instead of wasting time in a relationship. I'm so busy and already enjoying life with the money I earned, no need to fullfill other individual wishes.

    Fuck I already did (and still doing) most of them, but making mistakes is the best way to learn though
