If you got the chance would you go back and do high school all over again?
While I wish I'd 'done' high school better, no. Whether you mean recreate my high school days or start fresh today...no I wouldn't want to go back there. Just old enough to feel ready to control your own life, still needing to answer to authority figures, 7 classes a day to keep track of plus the social scene...I can't imagine. I'm getting ready to send my daughter next year, and I don't envy her much more than the attitude that comes with this age. You can do anything. You can make a difference. You are invincible. After all, you're a teenager and almost (but not quite) done with school.
What a great question! No, I wouldn't, not even if I could have my adult mind in my teenage body. I have two teenagers now, and they've brought back memories of all the drama, angst, and self-doubt that I had as a teenager. I'm glad it's over for me. But, I would do college all over again!
Oh no way. I couldn't get out of that place fast enough. I enjoy being an adult much more than being a teenager.
Not in a million years! I like being almost fifty too much. Though I'd love to have the 16-year old body and eyesight, I remember my 16-year old brain was a little flaky.
No, I don't. I believe I did my best in my high school amd I got good grades. I don't think its necessary for me to do it all over again (not that I cannot learn anything else-I am sure I do not know everything!)
Absolutely. Those were the best years of my life. I was young, healthy, had all of my body parts, was never lonely and it was the 50's...when men were men and women were women and you always knew where you stood!
No, it was only a few years ago (graduated in '06) but since then I know the pressure has only gotten worse on kids that age. High school wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. Then again I went to a super small school which was pretty boring - lack of people, and lack of funds so there were barely any classes or activities for us to do. The only thing I miss is the lack of responsibilities outside of keeping up my grades. Of course, definitely does not compare to the freedoms of being an adult.
Definately not! I hated high school and never regretted the day I left. I know that some folks say and believe in the saying that 'school days are the best days of your life'! For me the were very crappy days and I couldn't wait to leave. When I hit college I was amazed at how 'human' the tutors were. They gave lots of support and didn't ball you out or call you 'dumb' in front of everyone. College I loved and would go back anytime! High school sucks!
Sure. A few years ago, a girl I had a big crush on then told me she wanted me bad back in high school. If I could go back and have that knowledge, it would have been different. Other than that, no high school would not be as cool as college to go back and do all over again.
I fought in the Vietnam War, and being in high school was even more difficult than that -- because of such things as peer pressure, broken hearts, wearing a strange-looking tuxedo to my prom that all of the other kids -- including my date -- laughed at, the tough athletic coaches who were always on my case, zits, curfews, constantly getting hassled by LAPD officers because I looked suspicious ...
