    Spanish verbs are too complicated.
    Hay 3 conjugaciones. Los verbos que acaban en
    - ar
    - er
    - ir
    Y como en English there are irregular and regular verbs.
    Regadings your questions:
    I wanted: yo quise o quería
    I had: yo tuve o tenía
    I bought: yo compraba o compré
    Esto es porque en Spanish existen dos tiempos de pasado

    I wanted - quería
    I'll want - querré

    In spanish the verbs have many variations
