It was hard not too because most of all my friends definition on "we are going to have a great time" was that we were going to do everything I set myself not to do anymore. It was hard being friends with them and not doing those things but little by little It began to be easier. Here I am in college now still doing good in school and I havent even done any of those things since the day I promised myself that I wouldnt. I had many benefits from changing the negative person I use to be. I do not have to lie about why I smell weird to my parents.
When people think about high school, they see all of the things they regret not doing. Some even think about the experiences they missed out on or the great times they did have while in high school. My time in high school wasn 't that bad. I played sports and had friends that I will have forever. I never got a state sweater in any of the sports I did do, but that wasn 't my goal in any of the sports.
We hardly ever had any homework and our parents thought we were too innocent to punish us if we came home from school late. So we considered this to be the perfect time for some refreshing fun. I learned a lot from a participation which I initially thought was simply about having a good time. In one sense I did have a good time but it was over roared by a pretty hefty consequence. My overriding regret is substantial and can never be amended.
On the side of this job, I have always had a fun job to make a little extra money by work... ... middle of paper ... ...hool and work and life in general. I did not strive to do my best in high school and especially my dual enrollment classes. I was not ever thinking about my future and started not coming to classes. Once I accepted God in my life Junior Summer, all that changed. I realized I was on a negative path and God helped me turn my life around.
Signing the permission form was one of my greatest ideas as a kid growing up. I was only interesting in being a part of the class because I knew my friends were going to be there and I did not want to be “the outsider”. During the sex education class I remember watching different videos about safe sex and unsafe sex. Deep inside I knew I didn’t know anything about sex or even thought about that word until that day. After that day I walked home knowing that I had no knowledge about human sexuality.
It seemed like it didn’t matter if I told my parents or someone at school, nothing changed. I never really felt that I could tell someone and have things be different. Due to all the teasing, I would often become distracted and lose focus on my assignments. It got worse each year to the point where half the time I would just be in my own little world to get away from the teasing. Being a student in Mrs. Wroblewski’s classroom always made me feel safe.
Who was dating, who broke up, and who got caught cheating on who. Things I didn’t really care to know, which was why I never joined Facebook before. I was never really into the drama of people’s lives, especially because it all happened to people I didn’t personally know. I went to a small school, a school of about 350 students, and I am proud to say that we never really had any bullying problems. Sure kids could be mean at times but nobody ever let that person get away with it, or the kids involved would talk it out, as I have witnessed personally.
Stress Reduction - Music is the Best Medicine Stress is something that I never really came across until college. In high school nothing really mattered to me, I was a very happy go lucky stress free child. I think I really took high school for granted though, I don’t think I took the time to sit down and think about my responsibilities and how they may affect my future. Instead I spent most of my time going out with friends after school and not coming home until late. My weekends were spent mostly drinking and sleeping.
My parents assured me I was fine and that I was just as smart, but ever since I always strived to be equal if not greater. He may not realize he does this, but he is the reason I am who I am. Even when I was having trouble with old friends he stood up for me and made it clear I was his kid sister and was not a force to be reckoned with. Thomas has made me strive to be great and has given me a sense of integrity. I have a feeling I’ll do great things, and I owe that all to
High school was pointless to me because I’ve always had present my parents words and they’ve proved me those words are true. In order to success you just need to try and if you can’t success the first time try it once again but next time try harder, nothing in this world is impossible its just the wanting to accomplish things. Since day one of high school I knew what I wanted for myself. I would always turn in my assignments in time. I would be on time to every class, I knew what classes I need to focus on and I knew if I would take AP classes it would help my gpa and my ranking.
