Would You Do It All Again?

Written by Greg Ellal and Anthony Janiszcak|

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.”

Sam Pansa - Southern Connecticut State University where she will be majoring in journalism.

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”

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”

Cameron Sheehan - Eastern Connecticut State University where he will be majoring in biology. Cameron chose Eastern because he liked it the most of all the colleges he applied to.

Maggie LaCross: “Honestly. no, because I am appreciative of the lessons I learned here and the experiences I’ve gained, but I wouldn’t want to do it again because I’m ready for new experiences”maggie lacrosse

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”

Brendan Khyn - Porter and Chester Institute of Technology where he will learn to become a HVAC Technician. Brendan chose this school because it guarantees a job much sooner than four year colleges and the trade makes good money.

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 - Branford Hall where he will be studying to become a Medical Assistant. Dan chose Branford Hall because it is close to home.

Dan Hua - attending Middlesex Community College

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!
