DO-OVERS/Second Chances

Do-Overs. A Do-over is a chance to do something over that you might not have done right the first time...everything is forgiven and forgotten. It is really a second chance.
 Sometimes parents or teachers give kids this chance. If you had the chance for a DO-OVER what would you do over? what would you change? What you said? How you acted or reacted? Maybe you would take yourself out of a situation entirely? Now's your chance...what is your DO-OVER? (please leave out or change the names.)

  1. Ok so this Do-Over is really embarrassing. It was on the 4th of July last year, and we were waiting with a bunch of other people for fireworks to go off. So it was getting dark and the fireworks were taking forever to go off. I was getting really bored. I started playing Ice Cream Jump on my ipod and I saw a little boy walking by. It was dark and I thought the boy was my little brother. I don’t know why but I turned my ipod around and yelled, “OOOOH LOOK!! ITS ICE CREAM JUMP!!” at the boy and it turned out that he was not my brother. He yelled “What the heck?!” at me at I'm thinking in my head, “Oh no. Now he thinks I'm a psycho path…” It was so embarrassing. Well if I had a Do-Over I would not do that.

  2. A time that I would need a do-over is in second grade. It was the afternoon and we were just coming in from recess and me and one of my old friends was pushing me so I started to push him back and we both fell down...in front of the principal. After we went to the office and got in trouble I felt bad that I got me and my friend in trouble. So, if I could do a do-over I would use gladly use it.

  3. The do-overs I would want to do-over are all the times I made my friends upset. I always felt really bad when I made them sad or mad, so I would that all over again.

  4. My one Do-over would be running into a tree. Let me set a scene. It's Friday May 11 2011. 45 degrees. Lunch recess. Paper snakes waving in the air. Running backwards. BOOM! My head slams into a tree and I bounce backward. Afterwards, I suffered many scrapes and bruises to the face. I know not to run backwards anymore.

  5. If there was something that I could do something over it would be my 2013 little league playoff game that we lost 10-6. What I would do is fire my team up and lead my team by making plays and getting hits. By doing that my team could get some motivation and we could win and continue but that didn't happen. After that game I felt terrible. Besides motivation I don’t know what else I could if done, I can’t control them so they would have to play well as well. I think our whole team would want to redo that day, but the past is in the past.

  6. The one-and-only thing I could do-over would be my concussion. I got a concussion in August, of 2012, because of a four foot drop off a skate board park jump. If I had known that there was a ramp and a jump, I would have gone off the ramp. Maybe, I even would not even do the jump. Then, I would not have gotten a concussion. In the end, I would have realized, "Look before you Leap."

  7. I wouldn't redo anything because it would be worthless I wouldn't learn the life lesson and I wouldn't be consequence from my actions. It would be a waste and I would still never do it. I think that life lessons are important and it is a great thing to have. Also, it is a good thing to go through life with out do overs!

    1. Very good point! It is a part of life to make mistakes and what you take from it is the true win.

  8. If I could do a re-do, I would choose the time when I threw a tantrum when i was six. I got in so much trouble I was grounded for TWO WEEKS! I couldn’t play any kind of electronic device, not even cartoons!!! So basically, two weeks of no cartoons is two weeks of life wasted!!! =] Kidding

  9. Everybody has to make one mistake that they regret and want to do over. I have made a lot of mistakes that I would want to do over but there is one that I want to change. We were at the dinner table and we were with my friend, she and my sister were talking and not even turning to look at me to see f was still there and I was feeling lonely.Then I finally said “ Am I invisible or something?”
    They turned around and said that I was being ridiculous and that they were just talking about a book I haven’t read and they didn’t want to spoil it. I saw the hurt in their eyes when I asked the question. I wish that I had just kept my mouth shut. I feel bad for not having trust in my friend and thinking that she rather talk to my sister than to me.

  10. A lot of people make mistakes in their life, including me. There were a lot over things that I wish I could do over but there is one specific event that I REALLY want to erase. I was sitting at the dinner table waiting for my parents to be seated and my brother was singing this annoying song about goblins and dragons, and I lost it. I had a bad headache that day and my brother never stops talking so I yelled, “WHY ARE YOU SO ANNOYING!!!!!” I know a lot of siblings say that but Jack’s face was so sad, he was little and didn’t know better I was just being mean. So when I saw him look at me, I wish I could’ve have stuffed those words back into my mouth, but I couldn’t. I got in trouble but I didn’t care, my little bro has NEVER sang that song and I kind of miss it. Do-Overs are the one thing in the world that we DON’T have and, so I think that when someone invents a Do over machine, I will be the happiest person in the GALAXY! But, for now, I have to wait. Wait and regret.

  11. I always regret the time when I was about seven that I thought my dad was standing next to me. I said his name and the guy that was standing next to me did look like my dad but he didn't respond. So I with my 7 year old tract of thoughts brought me to punching the guy. It turns out my dad was in the bathroom but I felt bad about it and now I feel worse about it. I really wish my dad would have said that he was going to the bathroom louder but we can't realistically have do-overs for all of our mistakes sometimes we just have to except it.

  12. Something I would do a “Do-over” on is probably when I had a very messy room and I got in trouble so my dad told me that I would move down stairs for who knows how long. But about half-way through he told me to go back up to my room and just clean it, so I did I wish I could just re-do

  13. I have a couple of things that I would love to do-over, but I have one thing that would be so amazing. at the beginning of the year I had a choice. I could sign up for the swim team, or I could do the basketball team with my friend Cooper. I decided to sign up for the swim team. I thought it would be a great choice, but it turned out to be a terrible one. If I could go back in time I would change that because then I would be able to do something fun with my friend, and I would be getting better at a sport that I actually like to play. There are so many things in life that could have been done better, but we just have to learn to move on.

  14. Something I want to have a do-over with is trusting a different person. Last year, I became close with this girl. She had another friend who turned out to be a liar. She said that I could trust her. But, then she started talking behind my back. I wish that I could choose someone else to hang out with and trust!

  15. If I could re-do something I would redo the time where I hit boy #1 with a basket ball in the stomach. So he's one of the things i most regret in life because I feel so bad that I hurt him, so lets get started. So I was with my friend (aka girl #1) and we decided to go to the park. When we got their, boy #1 and his friends were there (friends- Boy #2, Boy #3, and Boy #4.) We also saw two of our friends (girl #2 and girl #3) So, when we saw the boys they started insulting us, then they were like “wanna play basketball?” So, we said yes. While we were playing,they continued to be rude to us, so I was over with it, and threw the basketball. Of course, it hits boy number one right in the stomach. I immediately felt my heart drop. Seriously, once that happened i ran, I didn't know where I was going, but I just ran. I felt the most shame I've ever felt. knowing that I hurt someone. I remember boy #2 and boy #3 started yelling at me and saying how I was an idiot and how I didn't deserve life. Which really offended me. But, boy #3 came up to me and said boy #1 was ok and he was telling me to calm down and he was really nice about it. So, that it the time I would want to re-do in my life. It’s really embarrassing and I'm still really mad at myself for doing that. PLEASE DO NOT POST BECAUSE PEOPLE WHO WERE IN THE STORY ARE IN THIS CLASS!

  16. At the time, I can't think of something that I would do-over. But, I can think of a time that I wouldn't want to do-over. ___ and I were BFFs. She would play with me everyday, and I liked that. One day, at recess, I said that I wanted to go play with someone else that day, and ___ took it the wrong way. Ever since then I have been wondering if I would do-over that day, and I realized, the friends I cherish now would not be with me today. I would still be playing with ___. I realized, all of the hurt I felt for losing ___, I have better friends to play with now.

  17. If I could do over anything in the world I would do over a bad decisions that I made while I was sledding. I had found this very large jump at the end of a while with a wooden fence at the end. I thought it would be really fun to go down because you would be flying down and get a lot of air. I thought I would not hit the fence because there was a little curve at the end that usually directed you away from the fence. As I started to run down the hill and jump on the sled I thought it was the best idea I had ever had. But once I go flying off the jump I started to second guess my decision. As I landed on the solid ice below the impact jerked my head down. As I look up my face immediately smashes into the wooden fence causing my face to start to bleed. I cried for about 30 seconds before I realized that I was okay. As I walk into my house an hour later I look at my face and there is a really big bruise on my eye with a ton of scratches going diagonal. I then realized that I was going to look like that for picture day the next day. I then realized that this was going to be the ugliest picture I have ever taken!

  18. One thing I wish I could do over is when I was little. I was playing soccer when someones ball hit me. I got mad and threw the ball back at them eventually it was one on one dodge ball. By the time the bell rung we were both mad and they told their friends and earned me a bad reputation.

  19. One thing I would "Do-Over" on is when I would'nt listen to my parents when they told me to help my sister clean the playroom. I did'nt listen and knew I should have because later on, I could barely walk through there. I wish I could have re-did that because eventually I got a huge cut in my foot from steppinh on a LEGO!

  20. Something I wish I could do over is a play in a lacrosse game. In the lacrosse game I was on offense and my teammate passed me the ball and even though it was a catchable pass I still didn't catch it. Then, I ,thankfully, got the groundball and had a wide-open shot. But, for some silly reason, I didn't take teh shot. That is something that I wish I could do over.

    My do over would be if I could have finished the math video on the second of april and turned in the note catcher in the morning. I would do this over because this disappointed me and it brought down my day.

  23. Something I would do over is getting a concussion. The pain that I felt that night was unbearable. My head felt like a giant weight was on top of it. I would do it over because ever since, I’ve been afraid of getting another and have been kind of playing it safe. I would do it over because of the pain I felt with it, and how I acted after it.

  24. I have tons of things I would like to have a do-over but this one is the most important to have a do-over. One thing that I wish I did not do was becoming friends with one kid, he was really mean, he told me to bad things and sadly I did it. He had no respect and did not care about anything. He lead me a bad way for 3 years, if it was anything I would travel back in time and tell myself not t become friends with that kid. I hope that I will never make an mistake like that again. If only this would be real.

  25. If I had a chance to do something over I would do-over a trip to a pool in the mountains. My friend, McKinley, and I were at a pool in the mountains and there were these girls who were cannon balling on top of us then while we were under they would pinch or twist us, so we cannonballed right next to them. After getting out I went to take a shower. If I had a do-over I would have showered at home. Once we had closed the shower curtain, the ripped it away and said “Why were you guys being such b****es out there. At the time, I didn’t know what that meant, so I asked what it meant. One girl spoke up and said it was a mother dog and they all laughed. I closed the shower curtain on their laughing faces. In two seconds it was pulled aside and a girly voice was saying, “We weren’t done with our conversation.” I got out of the shower with my friend trailing to go tell McKinley’s dad. “Behind me I heard “You going to go tell your daddy?” I didn’t answer and said,”Why are you following us” “We are going back to the pool.” I was overjoyed and I let them go by and then showered. If I had one do-over this is what I would do.
