First off, and this is probably my biggest mistake, was just slacking off at school work. I have a very energetic personality. That means I want to be doing stuff and creating things rather than just sitting there doing worksheets to get grades. I really wish I would’ve just sucked it up for a little bit and did what I needed to do to get those better grades I wanted. It would’ve helped me in my future with any difficult projects I don't look forward to doing.
Next, I wish I would’ve managed my time and been way more organized. I juggled a lot of different activities, and I made it hard on myself by not scheduling things. If I would’ve used a planner, I would’ve been way less stressed and had a better time. I would have enjoyed high school more, rather than worrying about what I have to do next. Managing time is very, very important in life and it’s a skill I’m still trying master.
Lastly, I wish I opened up my eyes to more activities during my first three years of high school like I did this school year. I had so much fun trying all these new things I did. Take theatre for example, that was something totally new for me. I wish I had tried new things sooner.
High school was a pretty good four years of my life. Even though I would change a few things, it was a pretty good time. I hope all the lessons I learned carry forward into my future.
