Which school days? I'd go back, but only if I know what I know now. Or, maybe I would anyway. Still, lots of wasted time during that period.

Only if I could also make some stock purchases.

What school days?


Upon thought, it doesn't matter.
I would not go back to school, no matter what the grade.
What would be the point of it?

Not to high school. But it would be very interesting to be 18 again and go to college knowing what I know today. There were decisions I made, which based on the best information at the time, I would now make differently had I known what I do today. Mostly I would have pushed on for my PhD before going into the Air Force. Wouldn't change the Air Force career, but wish I'd gotten the doctorate first. Because the opportunity never presented itself afterward.

I'd probably make the same stupid choices/mistakes. If I knew I'd do right I'd SERIOUSLY go back and do it right. What a waste!

Absolutely not. I was miserable in those days, and I'm glad they're over. Even if I could go with what I know now, there'd still be consequences to hurting those who deserved it, which is why I didn't fight back then. Better off just leaving it in the past and move on.

Hell no, my childhood was miserable and I prefer to forget everything about it.

I would not.

In high school, I was nerdy, fat, unpopular, and had horrible acne.

My life is a complete 180 now, and I'm happy in my adult life.

No thanks.
