I just looked back at my old yearbooks and was overcome with emotion. I realized that i missed three years of my life. Only this, senior, year am i enjoying/participating in all that i can. I've missed so much.
you have 4 years of college to enjoy. Just don't enjoy too much and flunk out
High School means nothing kid.
High school matters most when your in it. Enjoy it, but there's no point in regretting it.
I know what you mean. I'm a junior and I've started getting more involved myself.
I felt the same way
Contrary to what many say, high school is very, very unlikely to be the best years of your life.
Oh i know i have better years ahead, i'm saying i could've gotten more mileage out of my 4 years is all.
Give it time: High school will seem like a waste of time.
Learning isn't a waste of time. Some people forget school and college are about education, not sports and socializing.
That's what made high school a waste of time.
Life isn't just about socializing but about enjoying it. So you enjoyed video games, fine. So did I, it was, and is great.
"And is" made that comment great :) ????
Damn. Thought that emojii worked. I'll have to check again :)
My brother felt the same way his senior year.
Enjoy it while you can. Don't dwell on what you might have missed.
Thanks Hayley. I know, it's just a little regret is all. I'll be over it soon enough, especially since college acceptances are coming soon :D
Don't stress it. Trust me, that happens wayyy more often than you probably think. I'm looking back on high school as a whole and thinking I should've gone out soooo much more. You'll always have regrets, you can't control that. But you can control
your future, so focus your efforts there :)
My senior year was my best year in school. Don't do anything to jeopardize your future, but make it awesome and unforgettable. You'll probably never be this free again.
That's encouraging :|
It was meant to be, really. This is the most "free" time of your life. Enjoy it!!
I fell that I've wasted my Frosh and Soph year and it looks like it will be the same for my Junior year. Don't worry bud we're in the same boat.
I feel so empty. I've missed three's years of expiriences. Lost to mindless video games and hiding away from anything social. I've only just begun to break down my wall. (pink Floyd reference)
What are you doing that different this year?
Freshman year was shit, this years has been the best so far. Hoping that it continues. I still play video games though, that's something I won't ever change. That's my stuff. No worries, it will get better, just do you.
This year i socialized more. I went to all the football games, even an away one. I'm talking to people more, i went to a dance, i will be going to prom, I'm part of ~5 clubs, so overall just more involved and social.
while you won't get those years back, you've learned an important lesson about what makes you happy. Just don't forget it when you get to college and find you don't know many people. Frankly, you're ahead of the game. Many people never learn this :-)
Get drunk, but don't drive. Just have fun.
Oh I know what you mean then. I've been waaaay more social and involved this year and it's made everything so much more enjoyable compared to last year. I'm a sophomore, but you still have college to look forward to, and that's going to be really
Fun too. Don't feel bad! :)
I definitely would NOT advise you to get drunk, though..
Yeah, I'm not in favor of getting drunk much either. Had plenty of fun in college w/o getting drunk. Two times I did get really drunk were miserable. You'd think I'd learn after one once, but I needed to repeat the experiment to verify the results.
