WBLK’s DJs Offer Back-to-School Advice For Buffalo’s Students
It's almost that time of year again. In just a few short weeks, Buffalo's students -- from kindergarteners to college seniors -- will be headed back to school. We know hindsight is 20/20 and that you're supposed to learn from, not regret, your mistakes, but our DJs wanted to offer some advice.
If our DJs could go back to school knowing what they know now, they would...
...I think I'd really just pay more attention to advice given by administrators, teachers, people like that. Sometimes, at that age, things go in one ear and out the other.
...know that the relationship that you have in high school isn't going to be the person you marry, so don't stress. Other than that, keep your grades up. A strong freshman year in high school leads to a strong freshman year in college. It's harder to catch up than start off good.
...definitely question EVERYTHING that was taught to me. There are so many historical mistakes in the history books and other things that you are taught in school. Things we learn are one person's perspective and almost never really fact. The stuff we are taught in school is often watered down and one-sided. Also, I know several people who are teachers who are don't really care about what they are teaching and are just trying to get by and make a paycheck. I would definitely research more things that were taught in school and challenge the ideas that are taught.
...in high school, I don't know that I'd do anything differently. In college, I wouldn't drink and party, and I would have taken my football scholarship a little more seriously.
