High school causes people to change and to develop through the decisions made and the experiences caused by these choices. A wise person will watch the life of another, analyzing the choices made, and will learn from it. Something that is seen as a mistake by one person can be taken and morphed into a better experience for someone else. Six high school seniors with varying backgrounds were all asked, “If you could do one thing different during high school, what would it be?”
“I would’ve tried harder freshman year.” (Quillan Crowe)
“Go to more sports games. I should’ve gone all out and had way more school spirit.”
“I would be more outspoken with what I am thinking in class and outside of it.” (Ben Clark)
“I would change how I dealt with my nineth grade year completely.” (Emma Griffis)
“I would have probably liked to go to more school events and get out more, but other than that, I’ve had a good experience.” (Harlon Baldwin)
“Honestly, I wish I could have used more of my motivation towards my school work, getting to classes, doing my homework, and focusing on my grades so that I could get to my college that I want to go to for way less. I wish I never would have quit sports also.” (Christian Daniell)
Do not let regret of one's actions define your student life. Take a hold of what can be changed, and if necessary, change it for the better. Although the course has run for East Hamilton’s seniors as this school year is rounding a close, incoming freshmen and others can still choose to create a better situation so that when they enter their last year of high school, they can regret less than those that came before.
