Well the only thing I can come up with is losing my friends from everyday life. My sister is about to start her senior year in high school and I am starting to remember little things from that year. It kind of makes me miss it more, but without the things that made that whole year suck, like doing scholarships, filling out applications for colleges, and other things that needed to be done in one semester it seemed like, the fact to try to enjoy your last year at high school seemed like a joke in the fall. When January starts, it’s like round two comes up and everything gets hectic again. As much as you try to fit everything in, there is usually one thing that is left behind.
Around the last few weeks of school, it was like I had to stand up for what was right and worry about that, plus everything else that was coming my way. I had my actual school stuff and my senior stuff all in one stack and everything was falling off the sides. Emily is getting the same treatment I got in the months leading up to senior year. I am worried she’ll go to school and not stick to it, it seems like everybody in our family is doing that. She’s got the brain, she just needs to be open-minded. As much as you want everything done in a certain amount of time, you need to make time for your friends too. She’s got sports, school and her work. Plus mom and dad getting on her back. By the end of the year, she’ll want one hell of a break.
I’m getting a bit off track, but that’s okay. It all goes together, trust me. A lot of my friends went to school close to home. Where I thought we’d all be close together and it would be easy to see each other. I was wrong. After I quit, it was like I kept getting more and more distant from everybody. Thankfully, I am use to it. It doesn’t seem like a good thing, but you get what you get. I hope Emily won’t have this problem, but if she does stick with her Facebook I don’t think she’ll have too many worries.
