  • Yes and No. You live, you learn, right? Anyways for the most part yes, I dated some pretty pathetic guys back in the day and thought high school was "time to party it up"! If I could do THAT much over I would have aimed for better grades and went to class rather then skip to go get drunk (yea I know dumb teenager). I also wish I had have listened to those older then me because after all they've been there done that so they know what there talking about. I wouldn't change the fact that I got married when I was 19 though, I truelly love my hubby and have been with him since I was 15, that's one thing I DON'T regret. Anyways There's many more BIGGER things I regret but lets not get into that!

  • Yes! I would go back and relax.I spent my whole teenage years studying and worrying about getting into a good college that i really never did the normal teen stuff.

  • I would have put in a lot more effort into my school work. I was an average student practically my whole life... didn't have much self confidence and nobody would dare call me smart. It's taking awhile to finish college.. I actually just transferred to a University but for the past few years, I've gotten nothing but A's and B's. I can only imagine what life would have been like if I would have put this much effort into school when I was younger.

  • I think I'd do pretty much everythign the same. Except I was in a bad mood one day and cut a classmate off at an intersection. When she honked her horn at me I flipped her off. I'd change that because that was mean and she had every reason to honk at me! :p

    I'd also quit my stupid job at Wendy's and just take the bus to school. That job cost me SO much!

    Other than that, I'd do everything the same. I graduated early, moved in with my fiance, walked with my class and got married. It was pretty sweet :)

  • Hmm good question. Its hard to say what I would want to do. I love where I am at in my life now and how everything has turned out for me so in that respect I wouldn't want to go back and change anything about my past because it might not bring me back to my present life right now. But I did not like the person I was in high school and if I could do it all over again, I would have been much nicer to people and would have tried harder to not stress the small stuff. I also would have tried to be a better student and would have hung out with a different crowd.

  • Yes. I would have learned more about the financial aid process so that I could have went to the college of my choice and not the JC. My parents wouldn't help me with financial aid, I was too young to understand and to embarrased to talk to the school councilor.
