    Absolutely yes, all of thee above.
    I think a college education is important

    yes…when i was in school i couldnt wait to leave…as soon as i left i wish i could of gone back

  3. Joy says:

    Absolutely I would.

  4. Lucy says:

    yes… although the thought of going back to HS makes me cringe a little.

  5. DM says:

    Nope, nada, Nein, no way. I’m having too much fun

  6. Laura says:

    My first response is always, “Yep, definitely”, because first off, HS and College were fun, and second, I’d like to go back and learn the stuff that I didn’t… I’d pay better attention in those classes that I hhhhaaaaaated, like Calculus and Physics, because NOW, I can see life-applications for them.

    But at the same time, I say, “No”, because going back would allow me to make different decisions. And while many of those different decisions would be good ones, they would cause me to have different things now… like they would probably cause me to NOT have Josh. And I can’t bear the thought of that.

    So, if I could amend one thing… yes, I’d go back, if I could retain all that I know now, AND if I didn’t have to give up Josh.

    Well, I’m not sure I understand the question. If I could retain all that I know now, what would be the point of going back to school?

    1) Even then, I felt most of high school and much of college were a huge waste of time. Most of the time was NOT spent learning (and I was a good student).

    2) As far as “socializing,” I always felt like an old woman in a girl’s body. I could never get into 99% of what most of the kids were into. So why would I go back now, knowing all that I know? I really don’t think my years of wisdom would make teen nonsense more fun.

    Obviously if I had it to do over again I’d make sure I had an education and wouldn’t isolate myself from social and other realities. And in my teen life, school was really the only opportunity to meet those goals. But I wouldn’t do it over again if I retained all my knowledge/experience either way.
