Top Ten List - Things you would change about your high school years if you could go back in time.
I’d keep a journal. Capturing those emotions from high school years? Wow, would that come in handy now.
I’d do a better job of reaching out to kids who were picked on by others.
I’d have stayed home from work the day I totaled my first car… the 1966 Chevy Malibu.
I’d change how I dressed. There is no way I’d wear those 70’s fashions again!
I’d answer Mr. Burmeister’s question instead of laughing it off and walking away.
I wouldn’t have believed my friends who told me the house on Ela Road was abandoned. And I definitely wouldn’t have gone in to see if all the things they said about the place were true.
I wouldn’t have pulled some of the pranks I did… then again, I probably would. But I’d be smarter this time.
I didn’t date many girls… but going back, I’d date less of them. I actually started dating my wife in high school. Knowing how well that turned out, if I could go back I’d start dating her a lot sooner.
I’d talk more about the deeper issues of life with my friends. My faith.
I’d do more to encourage my friends to avoid the self-destructive paths in life they ended up choosing.
