you learn a lot in high school.
you learn about heart breaks, you learn about losing friends. you
take your first sip of alcohol, you might even smoke your first
cigarette. you’ll go to your first party and get wasted. you
might even get a car. people show you how unreliable they are, how
easily they could leave. you learn to be alone, how to live with
your thoughts, how to force yourself to stay strong, how to stay
mentally stable. you learn a lot in high school, but i will never
understand the phrase "the best four years of your
life," because it honestly has been absolute hell and i cannot
wait to leave..
