It can be anything.
Being part of the "In Crowd." I was a social butterfly. Always worrying about my friends. Always worrying about socializing. There's not much I regret though. I don't really regret anything that's ever made me smile. I enjoyed being part of the sport teams. Only thing was since I was always worried about being around my friends, I'd skip class just to go for drives with them or hit up the beach with them. We did alot of fun things in highschool. The most I regret was us all getting caught for smoking stuff, getting caught & getting suspended. Also when I only got a 3 day suspension for badly beating up another girl... Did some damages to her. I missed too many days of school, I ended up catching up the next year & finishing off the year, fresh.
There are a lot of things.. Like break ups and fights.. But there is one thing i seriously regret.. I was very mischievious when in high school.. My aunt is a teacher in the same school.. One day i threw firecrackers in the staff ladies toilet just for fun.. I dont know why i did that but i did.. I enjoyed all the lady teachers screaming inside.. Untill i saw my aunt running outside screaming.. I dint knew she was inside too.. The site was hilarious and scary at the same time.. I faced a lot of consequences after that act.. As i see back those days i laugh it out.. But whenever i see my aunt i feel i wish i would'nt have done that..!
Not being very outgoing or social. I was terrified of new people, new things, and very shy. Now I wish I would have put forth more effort into working to conquer those fears instead of just living with them. I still haven't conquered them completely, but now they are more of a discomfort than a fear. I think I would have had more fun if I had made effort to be more sociable.
And lot like mandyloo said. I was lacking a lot of confidence, and I think now that i help me back from enjoying high school more.
The thing I regret the most is not doing all of my work. I failed a couple classes because I thought that I could get away with slacking in high school, but I came to find out that I needed to take care of my responsibilities.. I hate that I am in some freshman classes, and considering I have a baby on the way, I should of worked harder, because now I have to do twice as much work, it's very stressful.
The only thing i regret is not being confident and accepting who i was at the time. I was contantly worried about what others thought of me, if they were laughing at me, or being embaressed. I wish i would have had the confidence that i have in myself now, however, i suppose thats something you learn over time and as you grow older
Ive just left this year and now im at college and the answer is... nothing! I've always tried to get my head down and work hard and i've had some laughs. The only little regrets that i do have i wouldn't change because otherwise i couldn't learn from them.
Not showing up on time, not putting forth effort, not usin my intelligence to my benefit, basically.
oh i see.
