    I've been feeling a bit nostalgic lately. Thinking of the good times I've had. Yeah, I'm only 19 and have a lot more in store for me, but I just miss those younger years. Back in highschool when I had little to no care in the world and felt as if the world was mine. People always told me, "Make the best of this, cause on down the road you're going to miss this SO bad." And they're right. I remember how awesome the cool fall was back then. Football season. (American football) I was part of the team and everything. Had tons of friends and we go out and do things all the time and just had fun. Experianced both love and heart-ache. But those were definately the best days of my life. Sometimes I just wish I could hit some sort of reset button and relive those days. But life is a one-way road and we ride it out till the end. It feels like it all just happened so fast. One day I was care-free, happy as I could be, in love. Now, I gotta work a job and go to a college where everything is over my head and I feel overwhelmed. But I guess someday I'll miss these days too. And I'll be honest, my two biggest fears are growing old and life not working out so well, like not doing something I love for a living. Happens to most people.


    So what are some of your most fond and cherished memories?

    Ahh, I miss Primary school. Everyone was always friendly then, and the work was far easily. If I could go back to one moment in my life knowing what I do now, it would be to Primary school.

    I'm too young to have any "better days" so to speak, since I'm only 15. However, if I could go back to having the amount of work I did in elementary school, I would in a heartbeat.

    I miss university, and sixth form to a lesser extent. Not anything before that though.

    Is university fun? Do you only have to come in for around 1 day a week? Are the classroom big or small?

    I'm fascinated.

    I'm only a week out of high school, so I won't know if I miss it until summer's over.

    1) Usually. Can get frustrating when it comes to doing big projects though.
    2) Every university and every department has their own policies, so I couldn't tell you. I don't think you'd be obliged to attend lectures, but it's your loss if you fail the exams.
    3) The 'classrooms' can range in size- the biggest lecture theatre in Cardiff's Physics department had sitting space for about 200-300 people, while a smaller room two floors down was more like a high school classroom and only had space for about 20 people.

    Being a year older than most people in my grade is terribly disheartening. I legitimately envy them. I feel like I have to make up ground in college

    I hate being 18. I hate being older than every child in my family, if that makes sense. I have to be the first to do everything, and it's often that I'm going to make a mistake. This is where I'm going to fail, my career choice. I'm doing a foundation degree, which is basically an extra year of education I don't want. I'm pretty much being forced to do it by my art teacher. I don't want uni, I don't want a jobbb.

    I miss primary school. I wish I would have cried at the end of it, but there was me thinking I was going to better things.

    It'll either hit you in the fall or when the class that was below yours graduates.

    For me, university was a **** load of fun. So many nights out and stuff and people to meet.

    It'll depend on your course as to how often you're in. I was in every day, for a total of 16 hours a week. That's double most courses, but mine has no background reading or anything so there's more lectures.

    And as Kyle said, it varies. There's huge lecture theatres, and small classrooms. Depends on how many people are doing the particular module.

    Overall, however, actual university is shite.

    *sighs*... turning 26 in about 4 more weeks. One more year closer to death, *puts on eyeliner* Booo-hoooo...

    I'll say one thing, being older definitely has it's good moments. The sex sure is better, alot of the high school girls when i was younger were retarded virgins. But, being a kid in the 80's was good fun, and I'll never forget the early 90's.

    I'll be honest though, I prefer the age I am now than being a kid again.. life was limited for me back then with so many rules. I'm curious if anyone my age still has a VCR and cassette tapes on here. The music back then was so good.. Guns n' Roses, Dokken, TLC, Michael Jackson, Public Enemy, Metallica, Lita Ford, etc.

    I miss the 90s.
    Especially when The Simpson's and all the cartoons (and TV in general) were awesome.

    Primary school was fantastic, not a care in the world.

    I loved most of highschool, we bludged WAY too much in later years, and my end of high-school marks reflect this heavily.

    I have fond memories of all the crushes on teachers our year had.

    And the fad when EVERY SINGLE GUY in our year had the hots for the one girl. Ahhhh good times.

    Oh how I miss the 90's. Ofcoarse, I was just a kid, being born in May of 1990. But for the most part, I remember my childhood well. I remember the huge house we use to live in that my dad built. I remember swimming in my uncles pool almost every day of the summer since he lived just next door. I remember one of my cousins babysitting me and my sis. Another cousin that we thought was a total *****... because she was and still is 15 years later. I remember my 4th birthday when I got a shiny new Sega Genesis that came with Sonic the Hedgehog 2. I remember Rusty, the family dog. A cocker spaniel. He was the best dog I've ever had. I remember coming home from elementary school one day and my parents sitting on the bench on the front porch, waiting just to tell us that our grandfather accidentally ran over Rusty. My Mom and sister cried their eyes out. Most of all, I remember some of the totally stupid **** I did and got hurt or in trouble for. :lol:

    Ah, to be a kid again.
