Holy fuck. That went by so fast. I still remember the first day, feeling so nervous and being shy as hell. Everything has changed so much over three years. I have a small group of really close friends who are more like family sometimes. I remember always wanting to have even one guy friend and now I have so many. I never even wore make up in grade 10. I just give so much less fucks about other kids feelings about me. Like even between last semester and now, I’m so much different. I don’t hate everything about myself for one aha. I was always so insecure about everything, especially my weight. I’m not going to say I’m over that because that’s not true but I’m definitely a lot better. I still have days where I feel shitty and depressed but I can’t tell you the last time that I thought about hurting myself or dying because I felt like no one cared about me or anything like that. I’m slowly getting more confident as I figure who I am. I could never answer those questions people asked about you describing yourself but I think I can now, at least more than I have ever been able to. High school was not always the best experience of my life. Honestly, it fucking sucked a lot of the time. It’s so stressful and I reached some very low, dark points during it. I also met some amazing people through it too though. As cheesy as this sounds, I’ve grown so much. I know myself so much better and despite the negatives, I don’t think I would change this experience. It’s made me a stronger person and taught me how to deal with shit situations.Ya high school can seem like the end of the world and graduating seems even scarier but that’s because a lot of the time I forgot to see everything I had and what I could take out of it. Part of me is going to miss this all, seeing my friends everyday and moving on to a whole new chapter in my life but it’s also exciting. I have more control over my future now and know so much more about life and shit now. Idk, I guess I have mixed emotions because growing up is really fucking scary but its inevitable and we can either spend our lives fearing it and not moving forward or accepting it and embracing life, being who we’re supposed to be. I guess that’s what I’ve taken out of high school most. Don’t be afraid to take a risk, even if it’s terrifying and it’s something you’ve never tried before because it could turn out to be one of the best decisions of your life and even if it doesn’t, it’ll make for a great story some day.
