You aren't the way your 2nd grade self imagined and hoped you would be at your current age, amirite?

I thought I would be one of those amazingly cool, good-looking teenagers that you see in films and on tv. Instead, I'm a socially awkward, liked-but-not-popular, geeky, plain teenager. I'm hoping puberty will be nice to me, and reward me later.

I am Wade.
I'm sorry second grade self.

Honestly my second grade self didn't really think that far ahead.

After reading this post, I realized that I have absolutely no clue what my second grade self thought. In fact, I can almost never remember shit that happened in the past. Oh god. Let's hope I'm not repressing anything.

This is actually completely wrong. I know exactly how I thought I would be. Well I know how I thought I wouldn't be. As a second grader, I never thought I would be mean. I always thought I would try to help out the weird kids. Now I just help pick on them. I'm a bully. I'm the exact kind of person that used to torment me. I'm even terrible to the people I consider to be my friends. Sorry to everyone who has to read this. I shouldn't be sharing personal problems on the internet. But most of all I'm sorry to 2nd grade me. I'm sorry little dude. I guess I didn't turn out the way you had hoped.

I'm pretty sure my second grade self didn't know what high school was so...

blue overalls, with a stripped shirt, a backwards hat and dirty sneakers, with long black Pocahontas hair and not giving a shit.

Which I am not, but damn, I thought that was so cool.

the strangest thing was, I had a vision of myself being pretty, laughing, surrounded by friends, being kind and charming to everyone, and looking completely different than I did now. The wierd part is that there's a girl in my school who I realized a while ago is the SPITTING IMAGE of what I wanted to be. Like, she even looks the same. And she acts the same. It's crazy.

@iceeselenawiz I bet your jealous of her.

well, kind of. I would hate her if I didn't love her, but we're friends now. Also, I'm happy with who I've become in any case. I think I've turned into a different, more interesting and sarcastic person.

Well that's good then (:
If someone turned into who I had dreamt of becoming, I'd be a bit disappointed in myself. But, it's good to know you two are friends. Also that you're happy with what you've turned out to become.
It's not like anyone can change what they're meant to become.

I thought I'd be like a princess or something...

I wanted to be a princess, then I wanted to become a vet, then I wanted to be married. So far i've been all those things for Halloween. Close enough!

Little me didn't care about the future; little me just wanted to jump off of things.

Honestly, I'm at a point in my life that I never really imagined being at. When I was in 2nd grade, I thought about being in 5th grade, as that was the highest grade my school went. Never really thought about middleschool though.

Anonymous +8Reply

I used to watch a lot of movies in 2nd grade so I had that cliche idea that every teenager was popular and cool in my head. I was wrong, so very wrong. :p

My second grade self would probably be pissed that I'm not going on any magical, death-defying, world-changing adventures in English forests every day.

Nope, I'm just really nearby.

I wanted to live forever.
So far so good.

No, I've always been very value and goal oriented. In the second grade, I had some pretty strong values for my age. I wanted to stay smart, get into a good college, have talents, and be a good person at this point in my life. Oh, and I wanted long hair, haha. I think I stuck to that plan. I will say that I wanted to be an actress, so I'm a little disappointed that I stopped acting, but I replaced that talent with singing which I think my second grade self would find to be a pleasant surprise. Not everything went smoothly, but I'll take it.

I remember I wanted to be a smurf, and then have kids

They'd call me Papa Smurf...

(Unfortunately I forgot I'd have to turn blue and lighten my hair for that to be better)

Doesn't matter if I'm not where I thought I'd be, I've enjoyed the journey of getting to where I am now.

Image in content

I thought I'd be an archaeologist. Luckily I'm a 20-year-old looking through amirite at 4 a.m. on Spring Break. My standards of success have lowered slightly. Only slightly.

I went to a private catholic school k-5. My mom made me wear my hair short (at times it was even with my ears) and I absolutly hated that. My school was small and there were about 35 kids total in my class. I felt boyish because of my hair, fat (even though I wasn't really) and very unpopular and unfashionable compared to the kids around me (the mandatory uniforms didn't help). At middle shcool I switched to public and my life blossomed, even though I didn't realize it at the time. I'm tall and lean, and I can pull my hair back into a long ponytail which I always wanted to be able to do. I can drive, and I have friends that I can go out and do impromtu things with. The other day I was walking with my friend out of a convience store carrying M&Ms, a fountain soda and my hair pulled back, and in that instance I knew I was who I wanted to be. And this wasn't out of superficial values, it wasn't the need to be popular. It was out of the want to be confident and happy with myself. I know the second grade in me is happy and grateful because that's what I am. I'm happy with myself and I haven't compromised anything along the way.

I wanted to be the pretty, popular and a hard-core Christian girl.
Now i'm the average, outcasted and Agnostic girl. xD Funny how that worked out.

I'm not a power ranger pokemon master wizard, so yes, I'm quite disppointed.

Second grade me had four main things planned for high school.

1. Be able to speak Japanese, not check.
2. Be in a relationship, not check.
3. Be witty, I'd like to think check.
4. Not drink alcohol, check.

I wanted to be a daredevil. Now I race cars and motorcycles, and compete in bi-monthly amateur boxing matches. Close enough.

I wanted to be a witch... I'm Wiccan. Close enough.

I may not be able to give you cooties, but I could give you herpes. Close enough?

Honestly, as a kid I never thought about what I'd be like in the future. I could never really imagine myself being anything other than a kid... unrealistic, I know, but I guess I never thought things would change. It was quite the unpleasant surprise when they did.

Nope, not married yet...

I thought I'd have a hot girl friend who I'd sex all the time. At least I still have my hands.

In 2nd grade, all I wanted to be was like the typical cool high school kid. I'm almost 18 now, and I think I'm what my 2nd grade self hoped for; (Not being self absorbed or cocky) I drive, I have a boyfriend, I play varsity sports, I dress nice and I make my hair how I wanted to when I was little. Seems a little vain but that's what I wanted for myself in the future, when it was difficult to fit in as a non-white child.

I wanted to be tall and popular and beautiful through high school, and I wanted to become a Power Ranger when I graduated. I'm a 5'0" socially awkward nerd. And I don't think I can be a Power Ranger, either.

i'm not the way 21 year old me imagined I'd be, and I'm 22.

I thought I'd be like 6 feet tall, have long curly brown hair, and a zillion friends.

Today, I'm 5'6, have frizzy blue hair, and like 12 friends which annoy me greatly.

I think I wanted to be the mailman around 2nd grade. Now I want to be an astrophysicist, and I'm not sure if little me would be disappointed or ecstatic. I also wanted to be able to do the Kamehameha.

Oh my God! I'm 15 years old?! I'm a TEENAGER! I'm CONFIDENT AND COOL AND REALLY REALLY PRETTY. Everyone is envious of me 'cause I'm COOL AND AMAZINGLY GOOD-LOOKING and I'm a TEENAGER. Because I'm a TEENAGER I get to go out ANYWHERE I LIKE and stay up late and I'll have sleepovers every night and we'll all stay up until the morning and watch movies and have popcorn fights and it'll be really cool 'cause otherwise I'd get into trouble for doing that, but because I'm a teenager I can do WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT. Did I mention I was REALLY cool?
