What were you like in high school?

Were you one of the "it" kids or were you one of the geeks, the invisible, or the jocks? Did you use to bully or were you bullied? Given the time to go back, would you have changed a thing about it? It's fun to reminisce high school though I know of some who might have had a lot of difficulties back then. However, what's important is how we have moved on and how the past contributed to our present. Take a little reflection on this and post on what you have been and become!

I feel nostalgic. I was really bold and the best captain in the school. I used be very active. I participated in almost all the competitions and infact i admired myself for being like that. But now i'm not the same person. I want to be the one in the school. I dont know what went wrong but something went wrong

Maybe what you need is the same confidence you used to have in yourself or you may have changed your interests. It is also possible that the person you are now is a better person you just don't realize it.

Wow! so what changes in your life have you had since high school? Back then I was a very quiet girl but I got pregnant after we graduated. I am now a happy mother of a two year old boy..

I was a shadow. People didn't really notice if I was there or if I wasn't. In the beginning of high school, I was pretty popular with a small group of people (artists, dramatics, etc.), but that changed quickly . . . I'm not really sure why.

I don't think life begins at forty. rather life begins at a age unique to all of us. It comes at the time when we decide to put important things first and enjoy life without sacrificing our goals and mission in life.

Some things never change do they? I hadn't thought about this until your post (good one btw). I was well-known in high school, just as now I am well-known at work. Most people liked me in high school, just as they do at work. I was sort of a loner and I still am, but a personable loner. Sometimes, I'll venture out with a co-worker, just as I did in high school. Mostly, I stay to myself. What keeps me from being a full-fledged loner is that I do enjoy people and I love to talk-same as in high school. I'm not a joiner nor do I get involved in cliques, same as high school.
