So I was at my old high school last night, and let me tell you something:
When you spend the majority of your time somewhere, it becomes your world. High school is your world during high school, but it is not the world at large. Things that seemed so important during that time became faded and disappeared as I gained perspective. I felt like a completely different person walking into that school last night, unrecognizable from the person I was during my high school years. I’m sure it’s the same in college; college is my world now, with its own blinders and mis-ideas. Just remember, things change. It’s the only thing you can count on, really: change. If you love high school, keep in mind that there is so much more out there. If you hate high school, take hope in that there is so much more out there. Your world, and your frustration or happiness with that world, is conditional on it being the present, on you being there, now. But the present is ever shifting. If you can find peace in change, you can weather any situation. Nothing lasts, good or bad, nothing.
