    I'm curious to see if many people made the same mistakes
    I think the one piece of advice I wish I had taken was not to smoke cigarettes.  I;m still trying to kick the habit.

      My father advised me to stay in school and I didn't take his advice.I took a little break from school after earning my Associates degree.  I just wanted to focus on working a little and start a family.  I do like my job, and don't regret the time spent with my family but returning to school has proved more challenging than I had anticipated because now I have real bills and finding the time to study is so difficult and I feel guilty for spending too much time at it.

    This is a good question. I have made some decisions that I shouldn't have, but I grew from the mistake. I'm not a person who lives with regrets, I live with reflection and to never do it again. I take the lessons from life and just apply them moving forward.

    Stay at school after O Levels, and then take A Levels in order to go on to University and get a well paid career. Big mistake I made ignoring that advice. So many careers I realise now I would have loved, but missed out on e.g. Criminal Forensics, Veterinary Medicine, Journalism and Horticulture (I also really wished I had learned to fly a helicopter and done that for living) sad

      I made a similar mistake I thought there would always be time for college but I didn't realize that opportunities are like doors they open and close. Helicopters that would be awesome.

            Believe me... Driving a Double Decker isn't such a Cool thing to learn... especially when you are spending 12 hours straight, 6 days a week learning and your training instructor is significantly sweaty and obese! sad

            Have you got ANY Idea how uncomfortable it is when you're on the bottom, or where you put your head when you have to reverse through the S bends with the instructor on your shoulders, when they intentionally don't learn into the corners??? sad  sad

              wow I guess it isn't that much fun.  I just thought it would be fun because of the scenery and stuff.  Is there any advice you wish you had taken?

                Actually I loved learning to drive the bus, and to this day I still use wing mirrors on my car more than I use the rear view mirror because when you are driving buses you use your wing mirrors constantly. I did my interview in an old Routemaster bus (the ones which used to have conductors and drivers), but I did my training and my test in a Titan, which I found far more comfortable than either a Routemaster or a midi-bus. The Titan seems to glide along and has fantastic suspension, whereas midi-buses from were often real bone shakers.

                What I would say is that whilst I loved driving a bus, the job was awful because of all the incredibly rude people you have to deal with. The hours could be pretty unsocial too, earliest shift starting at 05.04am and the latest shifts finishing after 01.00am. I guess other than those two things I liked the job, it just would have been a lot more perfect if it had been 09.00am - 05.00pm and if we never had to pick up passengers lol wink
