And, I wanted to add a selection from my colleague Jonathan Woodward, who must be in the same boat, or a boat not too far away from mine. “For whatever reason, I found myself thinking back to senior year of high school. Those were some heady days… And, for whatever reason, they seem a hell of a lot more fun than right now. Maybe it was the (relative) lack of responsibility, or the relative certainty of our collective futures. Now, I just find myself bogged down with too much work I don’t want to do, continual uncertainty, and friends I see far too infrequently.

Still, would any of us really want to relive our senior year of high school? Even just a day of it? If you did, what would you do differently? Or keep the same?”

One thought on “

  1. I wish I would’ve known “the hidden curriculum”;; doing the least possible to get by, and taken the least challenging classes, then go on to community college, then transfer to fabulous university such as UCLA after knowing what the heck i wanted to do with myself so i didnt have to waste time in college taking things like microbiology, astrology, human anatomy and physiology, molecular cell development, the art of listening, chinese immigration, 20th century female murderers and shoplifters, and air pollution.  You may think I’m kidding, but I kid you not!
