How Much Different Are You Now Compared to How You Were in High School?

....Or are you the same?
I learned a lot of life lessons between 18-21.....I'm 23 now.

Back in high school I'm not sure how I exactly came off. I was a little shy, but it came off as arrogant so I'm told.

I'm definitely more relaxed now, nothing seems to really bother me to the point where I get anxious. I don't need a female to keep me happy or busy, so I'm more in a casual lane now in that approach.

How about ya'll? I'm bored, give me some good things to read.

Mentally, I'm not too much different cause I've always felt like I'm more wise beyond my years, and even feel the same way about a lot of my friends who are
around the same age. Same thing about being less self-concious about clothes. I don't cae about brands anymore, just the color.

Well I dated the same girl all the way through high school. Had a bunch of friends and had a great time. Went to college, went off on my own. No girlfriend anymore, only have a few close friends and I work my life away. High school > now.

This might sound stupid, but definitely changed a lot, but still the same in many ways.

I've changed so much I can't believe it. I don't look back at anything. I really think if I went back to high school I would've been a loner instead of trying to be so social. I've become so self-reliant and self-sufficient its not even funny. My maturity is unbelievable. I'm 24 now and graduated high school at 17. If I had this type of focus in high school, I wouldve gotten straight A's. My biggest differnce is that I'm a lot more spiritual and docile. That's a major plus for me. I wasn't like that in high school.

Only graduated high school last June. I'll have a better understanding of where I'm at this year. Second year of university is crucial, this is the year where you'll know who your real friends are, the people that you'll talk to for the rest of your life. I still hang out with a lot of friends from high school, visit them at their unis every so often, but at my school, it's hard to find normal decent people. With school though, I will find out this year, I had a pretty tough transition last year from high school to university. Trying to work on discipline so I can get good grades again. As far as women go, my mentality is completely different, I don't let women play games with me anymore. All in all, this is the time of my life right now. I'm only 18 and I'm two and a half years away from graduating with a BBA degree. I go to one of the toughest schools in Canada so hopefully, it all pays off for me.
