Aloha Friday, Did High School Make You Who You Are?


The kids here in Florida are back in school. My oldest has made it through her first week of college classes, and my youngest is getting back into the groove of what will be her last year of High School. This got me thinking of when I was in High School. I hated homework, but loved going to school. I loved picking what clothes to wear, and meeting your friends between classes. I knew I didn't have all the "right" clothes and I certainly didn't fit in with the "popular" kids, but I made the most of it, and had fun with it. It's funny how when your in High School, it seems like it's your whole world, but then after high school you can go years without ever talking to the people that were such a big part of your life. Back then the worst punishment was to be told I couldn't be friends with someone, and, now we're not even friends on Facebook, and that's perfectly okay. If I think of who I was in High School, and who I am now, I'm so very different, yet in many ways the same.

This leads me to this week's question:

Do you think who you are now, was shaped more in your high school years, or in the years after school?




another turning point, a fork stuck in the road, time grabs you by the hand, directs you where to go, so make the best of this test and don't ask why, it's not a question but a lesson learned in time... (Green Day)
