Instant Inquiry – High School Re-Do


Anyone ever think they would want to re-do high school or certain parts of your time as a teenager? Is there something you would want to change or do differently.

I would have worked harder on math because I suck at it. Then I would have tried to be more out there. I have the heart and soul of a servant and I wanted to do things to make my school better. Maybe I could have done other things too. Perhaps it was meant to be the way it was so I could be the person I am.

For me high school was about learning and succeeding though I had a learning disability. Socially I was a bit awkward but I embraced the friendships of those who were on the fringes. When you are a dork you are going to be drawn to fellow dorks. However I did gravitate to some on the “inside” who befriended me. Most of the time I was a total nerd who didn’t get invited to much. I don’t now come to think about it.

Let’s think about our experiences as they were and if we changed them would they change who we are now. That is kind of a “Back To The Future” style question.

BTW do you like the ginormous glasses and stache in my senior picture?

  1. Oh yes there are many little parts of school a pen d college I sometimes want to go back and do differently… But then I think, what I went through, how I was, made the Me of now!!!


  2. The only regret I have about high school is not putting in more effort regarding classes. I was too busy trying to be invisible to pay attention, but I know I could have graduated with honours easily if only I had given a bit more.
