The biggest mistake I made when I was in high school and later in college was that I felt since I didnt know what I wanted to be when I grew up that it meant I shouldnt continue school until I did know. I know that in High school I was very stubborn and rarely listened to advice, I highly doubt that I would li sten to advice from myself! I would have instead tried to place hints around myself to guide my "past self" in the right direction. I am currently pursuing the Automotive field. perhaps I would encourage myself to take some beginners courses in automotive and see if I liked it. I would tell myself that even though you dont know what you want to do for a career, you shoud try to find things in school that interest you. I would make sure that I didnt stop going to school just because I didnt know what classes to take, or which field I would enjoy.
I would have prepared myself better academically so my options would have been greater. I also, would have started right out of high school, instead of waiting and finding myself in a dead end job. Life could have been easier if I had planned for college earlier, since the economy took a turn for the worst. I can't go back and undo time, however, I can advise younger kids to prepare better than I did for college. Another factor would be taking the college entrance exams required for college. I never felt it was necessary, or that I would ever need to take exams for college. I thought I could make a great living in construction. I now know how hard construction is on my body, and education is what counts.
