Hey guys! Welcome back. I don’t think I have ever done a high school post. I mostly talk about college because that’s where I am now and I love it. High school wasn’t the best. I would rate it like a 3/10. There was a lot that went on in high school that just wasn’t great. So if you are having a terrible experience in high school right now, just know, as cliche as it may sound, it gets better.
There was a lot of popularity that went on in my high school. I was never popular and never wanted to be. The only thing it got you was better grades and I already had that. I didn’t like the fact that the only way you could be popular was to be on a sports team or have friends who were. It just didn’t seem right. It isn’t a position I wanted to be in and I didn’t envy those who were, I just thought it was a really terrible concept.
There was also a lot of bullying. It wasn’t anything really terrible, but it did happen. I was bullied a few times, but considering everything I had going on it didn’t really phase me. Bullying is a terrible thing to go through though I am sure. I saw it happen all the time to a lot of people. And at my school there was no one to go to because everyone was on the side of the popular kids because they were on the sports teams and they needed them. So they never got in trouble.
I didn’t really have friends in high school. I mean I had A LOT of fake friends, but no true friends. It wasn’t until college that I really experienced having real friends who truly cared. Of course in high school everyone is self-centered so I’m not really shocked. I don’t talk to anyone from high school anymore because everyone kind of moved on. occasionally I will talk to someone if they reach out, but it doesn’t really come of anything. I only had one “relationship” in high school and he cheated on me so we aren’t going to talk about relationships in high school.
I spent most of high school just trying to survive. I hoped college would be different and better and it was. I’m really glad I had that experience in high school because it allowed me to appreciate what I have now. I don’t think given the choice I would change anything. I have grown from the person I was then and I think I turned out pretty okay.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let me know in the comments if you are in high school and I will choose one lucky person to win a high school care package because I think you deserve it. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
