Goodbye to the People Who Walked Out of My Life

Goodbye to the People Who Walked Out of My Life


We have all had those people in our lives -- the ones that stay there for a bit, you get really close to, and then with a blink of an eye, they are gone. It's like you don't even have time to wonder what happened. It's all over with, no questions asked.

Well, I'm asking now. Where the heck did you go, and why did you leave?

I mean, honestly, I am glad you left so I could see who the real people in my life are, but don't you know that it hurts a little bit to be abandoned without an explanation? For most of my life, now, it seems that a lot of the people who I could once trust with everything are now letting me feel like I can't trust anyone, anymore. And let me tell you, it isn't just friends that are leaving. It is guys, too. I have to say, without seeming conceited, I think I am an okay person. So what is it about me that makes leaving my life seem easy? However, if it is me that pushes you out of my life, I am sorry for making you believe that you have to go forever. But first, I would love to sit and talk about the reasons for you leaving, instead of being left out in the open, with no reasoning behind your actions.

I guess I should say thank you, though, instead of asking why. Because you made it easier for me to accept change. You made it easier for me to accept being left. And most importantly, you made it easier to accept who I am, even when you made me feel like I was the problem. So here is my delayed goodbye. The one I never got to say because you were already gone, and it was too late. It hurts to say that we will never see a future together, but in the end, things happen for a reason, right? So, dear old friend, goodbye.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.
