    Earth, bro-dude.
    Every decision I make is a mistake. To be fair, it gains a magical property when I keep trying to change it from a "mistake" into a beautiful masterpiece.

    None really, if I had a time machine I’d go back to when I owned some games shops and keep a lot of stuff for a couple of decades, but I don’t so that’s that :D

    Buying a $2000 alien ware laptop and tripping over the charger as I helplessly watch it fall off the table and go flying across the room smashing into pieces

    Student Loans. Going into debt at 17 years old and having that debt follow you for years. Isn't it Illegal to enter into a financial contract before you're an adult and don't know any better? If not it should be.

    I once traded a Latias Gold Star Pokémon TCG card for Slakoth + Vigoroth + Slaking of the Deoxys expansion. Only many years later did I ever realize how dumb that was, but I really, really liked the Slaking family.
    For those who don't know, a Latias Gold Star may reach upwards of US$300 in price depending on their condition, while the cards I received aren't worth more than a few dollars at most.
    Granted, I didn't actually lose any money in this, but I still regret it a lot haha.
    About things I actually spent money on, though, are probably the bunch of mounts I bought from the World of Warcraft store over the years. I've stopped playing the game years ago now and came to regret these purchases. Thankfully it was just 3 or 4 mounts, but money is money.
