Looking back...

A lot of who we are is about who we are with.

If we surround ourselves with people who fail - we learn that.

TO FAIL...

Look for better. It will help you.

I wish someone had told me that twenty years ago....

A few things I've learned leaving high school. If you like working on trucks, dont pretend to like partying and getting wasted every weekend to be popluar. Dont try to be someone who you are not. Now that i'm in college, i can still see the people who did that all their high school life. They are now lame. They're the ones who dont know how to change a flat tire. They can dress nice, drive a nice new looking car, but they dont know anything about it, and they themselves are actually hollow.

Its okay to be a loaner. If you dont feel comfortable with the crowd your trying to hang out with, thats a red flag saying dont hang out with these people anymore. If you just be yourself and do your own thing, you'll turn out fine. Thats what I did through high school after trying to get into the "prep" click. I just gave up and said screw you guys, i'm doing my own thing. I wound up being one of those "everybodys friend" kids throughout the rest of highschool, and now that i'm in college, I"ve met a few choice freinds who share the same hobbies as I do. I would say they'll be friends for life. They both drive chevies though.

I agree 100%. There are just wya too many fake people out there. I would rather have no friends and be who I am than be someone I'm not. Luckily I'm who I am and still have some friends!

What I thought was funny about the end of high school was that I ended up having more cash than the "COOL" people who were the life of every party I went to in my school years. And we partied a lot...

I just had a fixation about tools and using them.

Sounds like me too. I consider tools an investment. I love having tools for ever possible need. Peter94: At least you have a garage. I built a race car two winters ago in one of those portable garages. It was so cold lol.

OH SO TRUE.......

I wasn't popular in Highschool, I had my fair share of freinds, but we really never fit into any of the common "groups" in highschool....

now, 9 years later, I have a nice house, a boat, a truck, and a wife, every once in awhile I'll run into one of the "popular" kids from high school, who usually still live with thier folks, may or may not have gone to college (pissed away thier gpa in hs) and usually dont have a decent job.....

Never being "popular" they don't quite know my name, but take several stabs at it....... it's real fun to look at them confusingly and say "Do I know you??"

Over time, I have had to take hard looks at both the terms "COOL" and "USELESS".

They have a lot in common...
