10 Things You Wish You Knew When You Were in High School

Saw this meme challenge on my favorite scrapbook website Two Peas In A Bucket.

10 Things You Wish You Knew When You Were in High School
  1. Popularity in high school is a "club" of its own. In HS, being cool, having all the designer clothes, dating the guys on the sports teams, doing drugs...etc, etc...was what gained you entrace. But once in college, these people all of a sudden became nobodies and often became lost in places that encouraged individuality. Those of us who were considered the "geeks" however bloomed because we had learned in high school that a person is not measured by how well he/she fits in but rather how she/he can approach a challenge through unique and creative views.
  2. Be confident of who you are. Don't be afraid to voice your opinion, get involved in activities, or approach people.
  3. My gullibility is written right across my face. Don't let people take advantage of you.
  4. Don't get so emotionally involved in everyone's problems and failures. At some point you just need to step back and say, I have done all that I can.
  5. My temper is out of control. Learn to control it before something got really hurt.
  6. It is not what you say, it is how you say it that counts. Bluntness is only appropriate in some situations. Learn the art of tact.
  7. There are some great non-political show-animal organizations out there that rewards kids for their hard effort of raising, caring, and showing livestock and small ruminants.
  8. Just b/c you touch a computer, it doesn't mean that you are destined to be an electrical engineer.
  9. Stand up for what you believe in or in situations where you feel wrongs are being committed.
  10. I am not odd in thinking there is more to life than material goods, exotic vacations, and an uppity personality
