With Graduation approaching fast, you can feel the excitement in the air from our seniors. Before they go off to become whatever and whomever they want to be, we ask this simple question: With the knowledge you know now about high school, would you go back and do the 4 years over again?
Sam Pansa: “Yes and no. I would go back to freshman year and change some things like I would do my homework more which would benefit me more in the future, but at the same time, I feel like I don’t think I could do it again because I feel like I have changed so much, and I’m ready to get out of here.”
Greg Ellal: “I would not because I love where I am at right now, and there was a lot of sad things and stressful events that occurred in the past that I don’t want to have to live through again”
Anthony Janiszcak: “I would because I feel like your high school years are your most important years, and it’s not long enough, honestly”
Cameron Sheehan: “No, because I just take everything that happened as a learning experience, and I am happy where I am today to be moving on to college and all that, and even though I like high school I wouldn’t want to go back and do it all again”
Riley Thompson: “Yes, because I would have tried harder in school and participated in more premier soccer leagues to overall improve my skills so I could compete at a higher level”
Willow Pender: “Yes, because it would have made high school go by a lot smoother, and I would have known what different paths to take along the way to make it that much more enjoyable”
Brendan Kyhn: “No, I would not, but it would have been nice to know some of the things I know now freshman year to help me have a better experience”
Lucas Lennox: “Yes, why the hell wouldn’t I? With all the knowledge I have now, it would be so much easier, and it would be awesome”
Dan Green: “I would not go back to freshman year. Freshman year was fun, and it is fun to learn all the new things that I got to learn”
Dan Hua: “I would come back because I didn’t do very well in school, and when I went to go to apply for colleges, they didn’t treat me well. If I could go back, I would be on top of my academics”
Conor Crowley: “I would come back because high school is fun, and it’s a time in life where you’re like an adult, but you have zero responsibilities”
With all the hype for graduation, we know that many of us will be looking back on these years, wishing we could do it all again, perhaps in a different way. How do you feel about your high school years? Would you do it all again if your could and why? Feel free to tell us in the comments how you feel about this!
