Second Chance

By jeffreyjones Dec 12, 2010 322 Words
A second chance is something everyone dreams of, everyone wishes they could have. I know myself that there are many things I would like to have a second chance at. If I could choose one though, it would be what many people would call a game changer, I would go through my freshman, sophomore and junior years of high school again. Why, because I look back on it now, and I believe I could have done much much better then what I had done. When I say I could have done better, I mean I could have gotten much better grades, I could have motivated myself to do better, and I could have been more active. I don't believe that I did bad those first three years of high school, I believe I was just going through with out much care or thought in where school could take me. Instead of being among the average, I could be among the top, and this year I'm trying to be among them. I regret not doing that great my first three years of high school, because I know I could have done a lot better and that would only have made this year go by with a little more ease, but it won't stop me from trying hard, and striving for my dreams. I know if I would have done better, then academically I would be in a much better place now. I wouldn't need to be pushing myself as much as I am. I know the mistakes I've made in the past, and yes I do regret them. But the past is the past and there isn't anything I can do about it, but think ahead of the game and apply myself to do better and work harder. I know I can do anything I wish as I long as I support myself and work hard.
