My high school experience so far has been average nothing really exciting or or upsetting has happened. Freshman year was a mix of good and bad. Because on one side I have somewhat easy classes that I’m passing and I have been involved in many different clubs. While on the other side there’s a chance that I’ll break the bond between another person and me and it never being the same. In the beginning and the middle of the year it was great, but the work began to start piling up and more was to be expected from me in my school life. While in my personal life, I was able to get closer to someone that I was already initially close to but not. Once the end of the year came along everything just suddenly started to change and at the time I didn’t know for the better or for the worst. My work started to become much more stressful and it felt like somethings were collapsing on each other. Along with being stressed about projects coming up, the person I was close to things just started to feel like they didn’t want to talk to me and that they just started to annoy me. And just as I thought, we became a bit more distant from each other and after a while we started to talk to each other less and less. Now in sophmore year, I still feel like people expect more from me since I’m older and closer to graduating. Even though you don’t change your  mentality over summer vacation, you still stay the same. Currently things have been going much more smoothly then what I expected things to be. I kinda thought that I would be stressed out about everything. If I was able to turn back time and speak to myself, I would say spend more time with them and just take action because though you might not see them often, you won’t lose that closeness with them.
