We were all 13 years old before, if one day, we got 13 again, what one thing during that year you want to change? why? Well, when i was in grade seven, my graduation photo was a mess! I had no idea what that photo shoot was for so i didn't prepare at all. I just slightly combed my hair, and sat in front of the photographer, then he clicked... After a week, our teacher showed us our pictures. I was so sad looking, i wasn't smiling.. my friends were all in make-up, they had their hair well done... they wore perfect smiles... I didn't know it was to be published for our year book. So if i were to change one thing on my 13th year in my life, I would prepare for that photo shoot and i would smile perfectly and i won't just comb my hair with my hands! LOL...

If I can be thirteen again, I guess I will try not to be the lovesick pre-teenager that I was. I used to have silly crushes and when I was thirteen, rumors about my crush on a Junior guy spread like wildfire. It was so humiliating and I never even got a chance to get to know him better. I was so embarassed everytime I see him.

I would want to live more and be less uptight about things around me.I barely remembered my thirteeenss cos I was so confused and trying to figure out who I am and what I was becoming. Given the chance to wound back to the clock again, I would want to allow myself to just be myself and be comfortable with who I am.I took me ages to come to terms with that.

This is a very good question. I will changed a lot,lol!maybe my schooling. I was a class valedictorian in elementary and a debater, naturally my parents expected a lot from me. BUt the tough academic training during my elementary years made me drained that when I entered highschool I refused to be active anymore, eventually I ended up just honorable mention when I graduated. When I entered college I was so confused what to do that I kept changing from one course to another until I finished a Business course with no specific plan for the future. I could have finished with flying colors if I just got so serious with my college life. Laziness attacked me like an epidemic in college that I frequently missed classes and just stayed in my boarding house. My father wanted me to become a lawyer, but I disagree because it's a tough course and required much of the time studying and everything. I preferred an easier course where I could daydream.lol!Right now I am working in the University I graduated as a college staff. But when I try to look back, I always hope I did better than just merely a college student.

I fell for a girl when I was 13. I was afraid to understand the feeling of being scared of losing her, because I am a girl too. Lesbiansm is something really taboo at that time. And I really like her. I just want to say that I like her so much. I don't know if it could change a thing now, because I already have a GF now, but I just really need to finish it off. If I can be 13 again. I wish I have the guts to say that to her
