My first year in high school was one interesting experience, and not exactly in a good way. I had no idea who my friends were, where my classes were, what I needed and didn’t need to bring to school….I was a mess!!
Don’t be afraid to speak up. How else are you supposed to learn if you keep to yourself? I made the mistake of being to quite and I got taken advantage a lot of the time.
As far as friends go, there are those that you meet at orientation day that get you through your years there, as well as having the possibility to become lifelong friends. With that said there are also the ones that you pick up along the way. I have some of the most amazing friends anyone could ever ask for. They are there for me through thick and thin, together we can rule the world! Woo!!
Finally, I would like to leave you with the understanding that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Most of my freshman year, though yes I was surrounded by friends, I felt alone. You aren’t. You just need to realize that. There is always someone willing to listen and someone who understands, you just need to open your mind and realize it. Life may be confusing and difficult but it can’t stay that way forever.
Open up, make lifelong friends, and realize you aren’t going to go through troubles and hardships alone.
