As an adult I do think about what I was like in the past and how I wish I could just go back and tell myself what the future would hold for me and whatnot. So today I want to write about three main things that I wish I knew while I was in middle school/high school.
- DON'T care what others think
I know this is so cliche but this is something that I wish I took seriously. I've heard this so many times and I never took this advice. I was always nervous about what others thought of me in high school and I have no idea why. I went to a smaller school, so I knew everyone that was in my class and I wanted these people to not hate me. I always thought over what to wear, the friends to have, and to keep to myself. I wish I didn't do any of that because now I don't even remember who was in my grade so why did I care what these people thought of me?
- Wear what you want
This is something I wish I did. Dress code smesh code, that stuff is for the birds. My dean of students at my school was a creep but, then again what school doesn't have one of those. He would dress code for the most stupid things so that was something that made me second guess what I wore. I also felt restricted because of the people around me, I wear what I want and that's a way I express myself. So that's for sure something that I would change, wear that crazy good outfit girl!!
- Play a sport
Throughout my whole education experience I was in dance. I danced for a long time and I loved it but I wish that I had something other than dance. I was never pressured to do a sport in school but I think that I would have had the most fun doing a sport. I have no Idea what sport I would have done but I for sure would have shopped around. I also feel like a sport would have benefited me in college whether it was a club sport or if i continued playing in college.
