What would you have done different in high school

<p>Looking back on these few years at high school there is many things I would have done different.</p>

<p>Some stuff I would have done differently would be:
Taking physics sophomore year</p>

<p>If I had a C or below, take in summer school, cause summer school is easier. So my GPA gets raised.</p>

<p>Stayed away from electives. I didn't find them worth my time at all. So yea they were easy A's, but at the same time I didn't learn anything.</p>

<p>What would you have done different?</p>

<p>Oh goodness. I was such a neurotic kid in high school it's not even funny. I was so anal and boring. I just CARED too much about irrelevent *****, and didn't spend enough time doing what made me happy. It wasn't until my senior year that I discovered the fine art of Not Caring, and by then it was too late to really reap the rewards.</p>

<p>I'm still in high school but...</p>

<p>worked a little harder my first two years...this year I'm working a little harder and it has paid off (4.0)</p>

<p>Skipped Pre-Calc and taken AP Calc Soph year...</p>

<p>Oh, and filled my elective requirements in the first three years :(</p>

<p>I wouldve worked a lot harder...I was really close (according to my counselor) to getting into Duke, and I regret quasi-slacking freshman and sophomore years...</p>

<p>I also wouldve taken AB Calc over the summer...cause this class is a joke and I would liked to have taken BC instead...</p>

<p>I wouldn't have slacked off as bad on math</p>

<p>I would have gotten more involved in drama</p>

<p>I would have started playing mind games with the APUSH Teacher from day one</p>

<p>I would have taken calc AB my junior year</p>

<p>I would've taken more creative writing classes</p>

<p>I would have done advanced physics</p>

<p>I would have worked with the baseball team junior year (I did freshman and sophomore year. didn't do it junior year. That year they won the state champinoships).</p>

<p>A few things, and yes I know the last two somewhat contridict eachother.</p>

<p>1st. I would have worked harder... I've proven to myself that I'm not really dumb, I was just lazy... Had I worked harder maybe I would not be waiting on transfer admissions right now.</p>

<p>2nd. I would have taken APUSH!!! I'm a histroy major, I love history! On the test that we had to take to get into the class, I got the highest score in the room... The teacher was shocked however when instead of doing APUSH, I decided to take the regular class and avoid the work load... Needless to say he was rather dissapointed in me. Years later looking back, I can't say I blame him.</p>

<li><p>I wish I got involved sooner! I got very into ASB and Journalism my junior year. I had so much fun in them, that I always regretted not getting involved sooner.</p></li>
<li><p>Being less involved. While I loved being involved, it did take a toll on my grades. By the second semester of my senior year I almost never was in class because I was doing something for ASB or I was working on the school paper.</p></li>

<p>Oh my gosh. I regret taking APUSH! I hate hate hate hate it SO much this year, words can't even describe the amount of hatred I display toward the class. But hey, if that's what floats your boat..by all means, suffer. :)</p>

<p>studied, done another EC, taken part(ar atleast tried) to take part in competition or research stuff, my frenz and i were too lazy to apply :mad:</p>

<p>Heh, I'd like to have done lots of things differently, but I'll just list the main ones: I would have taken all honors courses in freshman year (I only had one) to boost my rank. Also, I would have taken summer school all four years because it really doesn't take up too much of the summer, especially since I live in a family that doesn't go out. >_> It would also free up my schedule for more classes. Lastly, I would not have returned to the track team for junior year. It was a waste of time. Sophomore year, however, was more fun.</p>

<p>Sometimes I wonder what it's like being a cheerleader, too; you know, to participate in something out of character. I'm glad I didn't take it into serious consideration. xD</p>

<p>I would have worn my hair differently. I would have had a job and pass my drivers test. I wouldn't take Aviation class again senior year, my gpa would have been higher. I would have started a sport freshman year.</p>

<p>I might have done choir because everyone I know in it loves it, instead of just doing honors and AP courses.</p>

<p>I should definitely have done a lot of research, because there are lots of opportunities that I missed out on.</p>

<p>I should have spent more time with tennis. I didn't join the team until junior year, and I was only JV. Had I worked harder at it throughout middle school and high school, and really tried to be the best I could be, I could have been varsity.</p>

<li><p>I would have run for StuCo office, or at least joined class planning committee.</p></li>
<li><p>I wouldn't have quit tennis or swimming (twice).</p></li>
<li><p>I would haves stayed in APUSH.</p></li>
<li><p>I wouldn't have switched schools sophomore year, so I wouldn't have gotten behind in AP Euro, so I wouldn't have had to drop the class.</p></li>

<p>I'm only a sophomore but if I was allowed to change one thing, I would have been more outgoing. I started out the beginning of the year being really shy and quiet while everybody else met each other and made new friends. I'm finally "breaking out of my shell" now and it's so much more fun! I don't have to worry about what I say, how I look, who I'm with, I just be myself. It's so much better to not be shy :)</p>

<p>Probably started my high school in the US instead of starting it in Korea then moving to the US at the beginning of my junior year.
Also taking more APs, I could have taken like 11 or 12 by the end of this year.
participated in sports. I'm not a sport's fan but i find it necessary.
read more literary books.
studied for the olympiad
it goes on and on.
but the present is what i have, and what is most important.</p>

<p>ok, well...im gonna mention something not grade/gpa/classes realted. i would've tried to meet everyone in my school and learn their names just for the heck of it. i also would've played basketball (even though i played tennis in and out of school). this is gonna seem random...but i also would have done something really stupid like dress in all black with a mask and run around the school and in classes screaming like a maniac and never told anyone it was me. oh well, i do have 2 months left. its not to late. hmm, where's my black hoodie and scream mask.</p>

<p>Actually, I'm adding that I would have been more outgoing. I really hate being so socially awkward.</p>

<p>Nothing. Every decision I have made has been for better or for worse, but all of them have taught me different things. Though I've done some stuff that I'm not too proud of (I guess relativley.."oh my gosh, a B+!"), theres no reason to wish that I did something different.</p>

<p>i would've taken chinese instead of spanish for my foreign language since i already speak chinese lol</p>

<p>I would have spent more time with my friends.</p>

<p>I wound't have listened to my counselor. I would have fought harder for the classes I wanted my first two years. I just assumed after I did badly in the classes I chose for the first part of freshman year (which I had fought for) that he was right. I even let him put me in bonehead English (Me, who read at a twelfth grade level in sixth grade, had written two novels by sophomore year and attended a competitive summer arts program in creative writing when I was thirteen.) But then again, if it wasn't for my bad experiences at that school I might never have transferred and the school I transferred to was fabulous. So maybe it was actually for the best.</p>
