A couple months ago I made a post on my opinions about high school. Since then, I have experienced many things, and most importantly graduated!! So, I decided to write a new letter on how I feel about things as a graduated senior.
Dear High School,
You were fun. The best years I probably had of you were my 2nd and 3rd years. But, that could have also been because I had a boyfriend and good friends. My last year of you aka senior year was probably the worst school year of my life. A lot of things happened to me outside of you, but my day to day school day was terrible. Yeah I had friends, but this year I learned that sometimes I really just enjoy my own company. My attitude got to be a little bitter towards the middle of my final year. Most days, I just prayed that your day would end faster, or every other word I said was how much I hated you. Honestly, I don’t know if I would change anything. Yeah maybe I wish I had a better attitude, but you really do suck. Everyone has a different take on you, but personally I just view you as something I have to have in order to get a big girl job. But I did learn an awful lot in your four years. Although, the majority was probably learned outside of you lol. I learned to have fun, but only in moderation. One of the things I wish I would have taken a little more seriously were my grades, because grades kind of do matter. Like your grades are what school and everyone else looks at. So if you plan on going to college I really recommend trying hard in school. Because if you don’t you will more than likely end up paying for it (like actually pay more for it) -just because of scholarship opportunities and things along those lines. But enough about that. You definitely had some fun times, but also at the same time I didn’t like a single second of it. Now all of that is a memory, and I have opened a new chapter. Thank you for helping me to become the person I am today.
If you are going through high school right not and hate it, I promise you that it does get better. High school is not the end all be all. For some people it is the best time of their lives, but for others it is the place they dread the most. Whatever it is for you just remember to stay positive and do whatever makes you happy. 🙂
