Fragments From a Junior's Thoughts Today, I heard the phrase



 
 
Fragments From a Junior's Thoughts

Today, I heard the phrase "it looks good on college applications" 11 times

Teachers tell me they are preparing me for the "real world" as if the first 18 years are a free trial

Getting an education turned out to be a competition I never agreed to enter

I used to think in weekdays and now I think in test dates

Nothing is heavier than this backpack except maybe my eyelids

I'm losing sleep, losing weight, losing my mind

I'm so lost

Even as I write this poem I know nothing I say matters unless it's typed in Times New Roman 12pt font

comment below is so true. teachers in high school make a big deal about everything and how hard college is going to be. it's not like they say at all

Don't worry too much, it's not half as hard as they make it out to be.
