Friendship in high school vs college

Friendships In High School VS college

friendship can change so much after you get that diploma


During your high school graduation, you have an incredible experience with the friends you've been with for the past four years, the friends you have laughed with, cried with, and created immense memories with. These friends you may have been with since you entered school, having twelve years with these people. After graduation, things can always stay the same, but they can also change drastically.

After high school, the question "now what?" is the biggest thing on everyone's mind. College, the work force, or just taking time to figure things out. This change from what you've been doing for so long is something so different, and will be different for you. You may stay home and be close to your friends, or you may go to college far away. Everyone has a different plan for after they get their college diploma and that's completely fine.

When you have friends in high school, your best friends, it may take a little extra effort to be close to them once the last bell rings, but it's something you'll do for the friends you care about. Making plans on the weekends between homework and actual work, phone calls, and constant texting are key components to keep you together. From experience, I can say that a lot of high school friendships are lost, it just happens. People's lives change, they have their own changes.

When in college, you meet new people from all over. Some you get very close to and help you grow into the person you'll be when you enter the work force. Some friends are your 3am party buds who you can always count on for a good night. Everything can change so quickly.

You can have those college friends that care more about you than other friend you have ever imagined having. You can have no friends and miss your friends from high school. You can keep your friends from high school. You can do a combination. Friendship is a crazy thing and after high school, you have a moment to decide where it's going to go.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
