The time I made I had to make a decision was probably when decided to rat out my sister. Bad example to be honest, but the only one I can think about. She would constantly sneak out and ask me to cover for here. One day I got sick of it and talked to my parents and in the end it turned out to be the right decision. If I hadn't then I would probably of gotten in just as much trouble as she was.
Kaitlyn. Sometimes it is easier to go aheadandd rat out someone because it probably well hell you stay out of trouble. Especially with your parents
Wow Kaitlyn i agree, that was a tough choice because ratting out siblings isn't always fun. I believe you made the right choice and by doing so you didn't get in trouble.
Yea its a good thing that you did what you had to do. who knows what could've happen if you didn't.
I agree with what you decided to do in this case! Having one of our siblings back means they trust in us but your actions were wisely chosen you did the right thing on telling your parents because if you wouldn't of then something more dangerous could have happened to your sister!
I know how you feel, I have two brothers. One of them which constantly got out and did that.
I've had to do something similar with my own family, it's always better to make that call rather than wait until things get worse. If you hadn't told your parents imagine what kind of real trouble she could of gotten into?
When I had turned 16, I had the choice between an older stick shift convertible, and a small coupe that was newer. Both were previously owned by family members who were looking to get rid of their vehicles. I had chosen the convertible even though the coupe would have been a much more reliable car. Despite this, I feel as though I made the right choice. That convertible has taught me to enjoy driving greatly and how to be a good driver, and I feel as though I wouldn't have learned as well if I had made a different choice.
Hey Sam, I'm glad you're happy with your car! I agree that it was a hard decision but choosing the convertible has made you enjoy driving so that's awesome.
Open top cars feel great. I am sure you choose right; the feel of it and the open air in which you can enjoy driving.
I also had to make a choice about which car I wanted. I ended up getting a 77' Chevy Silverado and it has made me appreciate driving newer cars because it is not always the easiest thing to drive.
Yeah that car is not the easiest to drive. But now if you drive a different car you will be a pro
Sam, I'm happy to see that you've chosen the right car for you personally. It's a great decision you've made especially because it's improved your driving skills as well.
The red car right? It was really fun riding in that those couple of times you drove me home. So I second that it was a good choice!
Choices are about learning from them. It sucks that you had to make the wrong choice but at least you know better now Which Is always the bright side of any situation.
One time where I made the right decision was deciding not to go riding around with my buddy. It was a good decision because what I didn't know was that he had drugs in the truck and he got pulled over and arrested. To this day I'm so glad that I didn't go with him that day.
Its good that you didn't i heard that some people got arrested for something they didn't do. In my opinion that sucks.
That's good that you didn't get in the car with him. You'll never know what your friends carry in their car I can never trust anyone like that.
I glad that you didn't end up going and getting arrested. My.brother also had something similar to that happen to him except he was offered to go to a party and declined and that night the party got busted.
I believe that you made the right decision there. You could have and most likely have gotten hurt.
It's terrible how much you life could have changed from such a seemingly non-important choice. It's a good thing you chose right.
That's probably the best decision In your whole life bro. It only takes a second for something like that to happen and it could've ruined your whole future
A time in my life that I struggled with a choice was when I was deciding if I wanted to take college courses this year. I decided to finally take them and I'm extremely happy that I did because they are helping me move toward my career as an electrician. College courses are more challenging and rigorous than standard level classes and I'm proud of myself for challenging my own brain and stepping up to the next level.
Jesse, I concur with the statement you've made a college class will stretch your mind to think out of the box and start thinking on a higher level than most high school courses will.
I now the exact same feeling, I had to decide between college or a regular and now I'm glad i stuck with college.
There was a time when i had to choose between either going to a concert with my best friend or hanging out with one of my friends who came down to Texas for the weekend. This was a tough choice for me because i really wanted to do both but i couldn't. Ultimately i ended up going to the concert and i didn't regret it because the concert was very fun.
I rather hang out with a friend that came down to Texas it would be best you get to talk to them. Instead of going to the concert well it depends what type of concert.
Giselle, you should've just asked your friend to come with you to the concert! That would've been probably a much better situation than leaving your friend hanging. However, you still had fun either way.
That's awesome to see that you chose what you wanted to do and what you thought would be more enjoyable for you personally. I also think concerts are always great options to spend time and have fun.
I agree with your decision because even though it may suck for your friend, it would suck more for you if you missed an experience that you my not be able to have again. Artist may or may not tour again.
Back in my freshman year someone dropped a 20 dollars on the class room flour in history. know one noticed because it was pretty dark because we were watching a movie. At that time i really needed the money to payoff a library fee, i guess the crazy part is that if i had took the money know one would know but Instead i give him his money.
Giving money back to the person is always the correct choice. Anything could be hard to give back to the owner, but it is always the right thing to do.
Choices can be hard to make at times. Especially ones relating to money. It's good you did the good deed and give his money back.
Schedule change is always a choice. Will the classes help you and how? I choose not to take any college classes. May God know if that was the correct choice but I say it is. I am not smart nor close to it I just emphasize it to create humor, make people laugh. I say I made the right choice because I am at least smart enough to know what I can and can't handle.
Hey buddy I been knowing you for a long time and your a really smart kid just believe in your self .
There was a time where I want to decide whether to a college classroom like computer maintenance or just like regular classroom activities. Instead of a college activity so I decided to do that so I can do that as a career when I go to college.and I'm glad I made the decision to do that
That's good Brent! It would help you in the future with a collage credit keep
Up the good work.
That's good to choose! Being able to work on a skilled job like that will help you throughout college.
This year, after being out of choir for two years, I had decided whether to get back into it or just get another early dismissal. It was really hard because who doesn't want to get out of school early, especially with this years schedule so I decided to get back in choir because I missed singing and having concerts and going on trips to UIL competitions. So far I haven't regretted the decision.
I struggled with the same decision when we were picking out our classes for this year! I was in choir for four years until I moved schools for a month. I didn't want to be in choir at a different school, and when I came back I decided not to be in choir anymore. I missed choir, so I started contemplating whether or not I should get back in the class. I weighed my options, and I ending up choosing a different route than you. I chose to have early release over choir because choir became stressful for me. I still feel as though choir is a family and I love everybody in there, but at the end of the day, it just wasn't the right decision for me to stay in there. I'm glad that we both made the right decisions!
I had to decide whether to take a College Algebra class or just a regular. Well the school kept messing up my schedule and so did the college so I ended up getting taken out of College Algebra. At first I was thinking that I might as well just stay out but I remembered that I need this so I have a easier and better chance in college. I am now in College Algebra and I still do not regret my decision.
I'm half that you don't regret your decision. I hope that you do well in there.
The best dicision I have make was chose football over my job. I say this because I have the rest of my life to work and get money but I high school football only comes once in your life time.
Pedro, you probably did make the right decision for yourself because you can make money later on in your life and high school football is only a one time thing. Good luck on your future.
Pedro i think you made the right decision do the things in high school that may not be an option when you graduate high school.
Choices are always hard. It's always about choosing what you think is best for yourself, one of the hardest desicions I've had to make is moving to a different place. I moved back to Sherman 2 moths ago after living in Mexico for a few years. Even though I felt like I wasn't ready for a change this big I knew I had to choose what was right, I decided to come back because I need to think about my future and the goals I want to achieve in order to be who I desire.
That was a great choice to move back. Its always hard to make good decisions for yourself.
The toughest decision I had to make was whether or not to quit band my freshman year. I had to make a choice because I was supposed to have a class that was the same period as band and I could either take band or it. I weighed both options and decided to stick with band. I feel it was the right choice because I am still in it.
Tanner, that is a hard choice to make but I'm sure it was the correct choice for you. You seem to enjoy it and it's a great program to be apart of.
I understand that it's hard to choose between two different classes that you want to be in. Some classes are only offered certain periods, which can cause conflict with your schedule. I'm glad that you made the right decision by staying in band! I think that it's extremely important that you choose classes that will make you happy.
that does sound like a tough choice. I'm glad your still in band because we need all the sound we can get!
A time I had struggled with but in the end I made the right decision was when I was looking at my first truck. I had looked at all these expensive trucks that were really nice but I knew I couldn't afford them. I had narrowed to two older trucks that both had their problems but I chose a truck that showed the style that suits me the best and I wouldn't trade the decision I made for anything because I really enjoy the truck. It has it's problems and it's not as nice as some of the other trucks that some of the people I know have but, I'm proud of my truck and will most likely be sad when I get something different just due to the fact I've shared a lot of memories with my truck.
Vehicles can be hard to choose and either way you'll always get attached to them. Especially if you name them.
Dylan, I believe you made the right decision! Picking the older truck that fits your style probably was the best decision you made
One decision that was very difficult was whether or not to take college classes his year. I always just thought throughout the summer I was going to regret taking my them and didn't think I was going to be able with all the work but now I understand I made the right choice and am taking them. Not taking the classes would have been a lot easier senior year but I wants prepare and save as much money as I can before college starts.
Taking college classes right now will benefit you so much in the future. You made a good decision.
I think you made the right decision! Taking college classes in high school is a lot cheaper. You are saving more money by taking these classes just do your best!
Yes! Same here Cade. I really wanted to take the college English class but in the end I decided against it.
The toughest decision I had ever made was freshman year when I had not wanted to play basketball competitively anymore. I had chosen to quit playing because I did not get along with the head coach. Although, he is not here anymore, I do for sure miss playing it competitively. I play pick-up games time to time because I do miss it.
I'm sure that was a tough decision for you. Quitting a sport or anything that you're passionate about is a hard decision. I know I'd miss it if I quit football
The toughest decision I have made so far in high school is to get out of AP classes. When I was in Piner I was always wanting to be in AP classes because at the time they were fairly easy to keep up with. But my freshman year I realized that in high school AP classes are a whole different world, its more serious to get you prepared for college. It was a tough decision because i wanted the classes to look good for college, but at the end of the day I dropped the classes so I could at least try and pass for the year.
Oscar, I think you made the right decision. It looks better to have an A in regular and pre-ap classes then it does to fail AP classes.
One of the toughest decisions that I've had to make was whether or not I should take dual-credit courses. When I first heard that our school offered college classes I knew that I wanted to take them right away, but over the summer I began to question if I should drop the classes or not. I knew that the classes would be hard, and that it would be easy to get behind if I didn't stick to a steady pace. I finally made the decision to stay in my classes because I knew that if I already had college hours on my transcript that I would graduate that much faster. I know that I will be extremely glad that I took these classes once the year is over and I have credits for high school and college.
I know you feel like you've made the right choice. They will be a little tough. You just need to stick with them and you do great
I think you made the right decision. It will benefit you so much
I think you are going to be very satisfied with your decision to stay in the dual credit classes, as you saved money and time! Keep up the good work.
When I really struggled with a choice that I was force to make. Was when I had to either work away around my schedule for my job or quit completely. Having a job while your in high school can leave even more pressure on yourself. I chose to quit my job because either way I was going to get out at the same time, which I wanted more time to do homework and sleep early which both I couldn't seem to fit in my life schedule. So sometimes you just have to make the best decisions for yourself.
One of the toughest decisions I've had to make was back in freshman year I got moved up to the varsity football during that spring. I was 14 going against guys who were two or three years older than I and at first I was getting my butt kicked almost every practice. I had to decided there whether I want to back down or give it my all and after a week of going as hard as I could I was running people over. I feel as though I made the right choice because I've started every single game since then and have had some big name colleges look at me
That's one of the best career decisions you've made snick I'm proud of you bro
Josh, you made the right choice to give it your all! When you give it your all you see what you can really do.
One decision in my life where I picked the right choice was when I had to decide if I should keep my job and miss a lot of senior activities/cheer practices. I decided to quit my job because I can always get another one and I got to experience the things I won't have a chance to do again. I'm glad I chose to quit because if I hadn't I believe I would have regretted it.
I can also relate to your situation. I faced a similar one this summer too, and I was very happy with my decision.
One of the hardest decisions I had to make was to let some of lifelong friends go. They were like family but they were doing stuff that I just couldn't do. I realized I have a future and a family that cares about me
A hard decision I recently had to make was deciding wether to start working or to continue on just with school. I wanted a job because I wanted to feel more responsible and start wanted to be a bit more independent. I decided to get a job at the end. The people I work with are really nice and they help me work around my school schedule. I don't regret getting a job. It was a good idea and decision
I had the same problem! I'm glad that I got a job. It makes me feel grown up and I get money which is great!
A time that I struggled with a decision was whether or not I should continue working all day, everyday or enjoy the summer with my family and friends. I decided to quit my job just 3 weeks before school started as I was very busy already and needed to get ready for the school year. I am happy with my decision because I got to go on a few weekend trips with my friends, spend more time with my family and get ready for my senior year.
I had to make the same decision this summer, and I also took time from work. I think being able to spend time with the people I care about the most on my last summer before my last year of high school was worth not having a paycheck for awhile.
The hardest decision I've had to make is to choose drill team or color guard. I chose color guard cause I thought I would enjoy it more. I was right. I love what I do it's a lot of fun.
Madison i agree you did make the right decision color guard is way more fun than drill team, drill team does look like fun though but i'm all for color guard.
A time in my life when i made a choice and it was the right one was when i asked my mom if i could stay a whole week with my best friend cheyenne because her mom is going to be gone. My mom said no, when i told cheyenne that i couldn't stay she wanted me to just stay with her anyway and not let my mom her a say in weather or not i could stay with her.
One time that I struggled to make a decision and made the right one was when I was making the decision to stop select basketball. The summer before my freshman year I had to decide whether I still wanted to play select or not and I ended up deciding to stop. When freshman year got here I was glad I quit because I was so busy with volleyball and school and other things that I wouldn't have had time for select practices and games.
This year I had to choose between taking a teaching class or taking advanced audio video production. It was a tough choice and one that could either jumpstart my career or delay it. I chose A/V. On the very first day of school I knew that was the right decision, I know know that I really really love A/V and making videos that I believe in is my passion.
Hard decisions? I've had to make a few tough ones but I'm not sure which one really takes the cake. If I had to chose though, it would probably be the decision to meet my Biological dad. Which sucked by the way, but it was a hard choice either way.
