How My Feelings And Thoughts About High School Changed As A College Student

As a college student, I learned that high school friendships, relationships, and feelings do not last long.


I am currently doing my fifth year in college. It has been four years since I graduated from high school. As the years go by after high school, my feelings and thoughts about high school changes. I do not see any of my classmates and friends every day. Some days, I forget about them because I am too focused and busy lately. As a college student, I learned that high school friendships, relationships, and feelings do not last long.

I meet new people. I learn new things. I do not look at social media every day as I used to. I see that not everybody from high school is active on social media as they were in high school. Some high school students unfollowed or unfriended me on social media. Some friends do not stay in contact with me as they usually do in high school. I do not think about my crush as I did every day when I was a high schooler. I do not listen to music in my headphones anymore because I do not want to daydream anymore as I used to when I was a high schooler.

I started realizing what was wrong during my time as a high school student. I do not want to go back to who I used to be during high school. I realized that life is better than it was when I was a high schooler. However, at the same time, life is not as exciting as it was during my times in high school. All I can say is that I rather stay where I am at this time.

Not seeing my high school classmates and friends makes me not only nostalgic but also relieved. I am very sure that everybody from high school feels the same way.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
