When people start high school they’re usually so excited. They can’t wait to experience everything that comes with being in high school, I mean who wouldn’t? Everyone says that high school is the best four years of your life. Now that I’m months away from graduating, I can’t say they were my best years but I can say they were my most educational years, of course I wouldn’t say that they weren’t fun because they were. When I say educational, I mean I’ve learned so much about myself and so much about life. I learned what the words family, love, betrayal, law and life meant. All these events changed me, and I’m glad they happened because I wouldn’t have learned all these lessons. My personality hasn’t changed; I’m still a carefree girl,…show more content…
My freshmen and sophomore year, I had my first real boyfriend. I was completely and totally in love with this guy, he changed me in ways that I’m proud of and ways that I’m not proud of. I revolved my world around him, which wasn’t a good idea. After almost two years of dating, we broke up and it literally shattered my world. During our relationship I became friends with his friends and I even considered one of them my best friends, so when we broke up I didn’t only loose him, I lost all of them as well. It felt so awful to all of a sudden have everything, and then just lose everything in a day. A couple of weeks later, I found out that my best friend was actually dating my ex boyfriend. I couldn’t believe that a person could betray someone like that, especially after everything that she and I went through together. I’m not proud of the events that happened after all of this, and I’m not proud of how I let them change me. The one thing that saved me was my family; they saved me in ways I can’t even explain. They gave me hope and a new life for me that I am extremely grateful for. I’ve learned to be wiser when it comes to picking friends, and choosing who to put my trust in. I also became a stronger person, I don’t let people walk all over me or I don’t let people control my life anymore.

(sound alarm) Don't you just love that sound. Ahhh the sound of school calling at 6 in the morning. When you start a new school or a new grade many emotions are most likely running through your head which stress' you out. But when you get to high school it's a whole new beginning and experience. The overall experience of high school is pretty neat if you asked me. The freedom is nice, although there is a lot of stress, the people in the hallway can be disturbing, and you make all new sorts of friends and enemy's.
Most people say high school will be the best 10 years of your life, okay okay 4-5 if you never give up. High school is a lot different then public school, you don't get to pick your seat…show more content…
I will literally do my homework while driving to every place. Most of us kids have been playing a certain sport since we were little and we aren't going to just give it up and walk away from it. I know teachers don't want us to do that, but when we have a ton of homework and projects that start stressing us out, that's what goes through some of our minds.
Now, the people you see in the halls of (Insert School). Probably more than half of you can think of one complaint about what the students do during classes specifically in the middle of the hallways. I can tell you which one I'm thinking about, when you're just casually walking behind some couple and all of a sudden they stop right in front of you not giving a single care in the world about other people, they just stop and start making out. I mean I get it, you two are “in love” probably have been dating for a week, and they just stop and make out in the middle of the hallway. They could at least have the audacity to step to the side of the hallway and we wouldn't have a problem. Which brings me to slow walkers, it is not my fault I am just a fast walker, just don't walk 5 kilometres an hour, or I will run you over and step on your heels. My friends would most likely agree.
Finally, friends. You make a ton of new ones but lose a few good ones. Some friends aren't meant to stay together. There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who
