We learn many skills in high school; Some things we might never utilize again, and other experiences might be life-changing. As we develop into young adults in the education system, many things can be overlooked and forgotten. Here are 5 things I learned in high school that prepared me for the real college experience:

1. Take risks.

2. Prepare for the worst, but hope for the best.

3. Know that you have the potential to improve.

4. Don't limit your friendships.

5. Just be yourself.

"High school is what kind of grows you into the person you are. I have great memories, good and bad, some learning experiences and some that I'll take with me the rest of my life." – Giancarlo Stanton

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
