I was trying to fix a bug and did 'aptitude remove dbus' and then I was going to install it after it uninstalled. Now that didn't go so well as you might imagine!

Since I don't know what dbus is or what Im doing I just woke up to a world of hurt! LOL!
Well this is good learning, I had a LOT setup but I really want to figure out how this stuff works.

I personally prefer to use the Terminal, but I better be careful.

So for future learning, if I remove something like that is there a way to get it back? Because I once I was in the 'full-screen, non-GUI terminal' I couldn't access the internet so I figured I was out of luck. (No ethernet cable either).

This might be of some help. I would suggest learning how to restore backups via command line on top of the GUI version. This way if things get messed up, you have a way to restore them.
