Though They Might Seem Lame to Others....

I have done things I never thought I'd do. One thing is quitting high school. When I was a kid, I always said I would never quit high school, which is what my mom & nearly everyone on her side of the family did. But my social phobia/anxiety made it impossible for me to keep going & I had to quit.

Another thing I've done which I laways said I'd never do is drink. Although I've only had five alcoholic beverages in my entire life lol, I still regret it. I always liked the fact that I had never drank & prided myself upon it.

There are numerous other things & I will probably add to this story later, but seeing as how it's 5:43am & I haven't even slept yet, that will have to do for now.

Congats on getting your GED! I'm going to be 23 at the end of March and haven't got mine. I've done the practice test a bunch of times...but have been lazy on getting it acomplished. I want to go to school before it's to late to get Gov. help...so I need to get my butt in gear....I hope you do add on to this sometime...when you feel like it. I dropped out to....maybe I'll tell you sometime.<br />

I also thought I would never drink. My dad was an alcoholic and it broke up my family.....he pretty much chose alcohol over me...but anyways....yeah there is a lot stuff you just fall into or give into as time progresses,and things,ideals change. I'm just rambling...sorry....<br />

Good luck with your education and college... it's good that you didn't become another #....I hope I don't either. I'm not really much of a school person though.

Luckily, I have. I got my GED in '06 & just started college full-time in January.

To me most of the time when we say never, We end up doing that very thing. Do you plan on going back to school
