As a high school freshman, I can remember feeling lost and I was always wondering was the matter with me. I never really was considered “popular” in high school and it kind of sucked for me. I wondered why I wasn’t good enough or why I couldn’t fit in.

I think the thing about high school is that no matter how hard you try, you can’t be friends with everyone. There will always be those people who think they’re so much better than you and can’t associate with you.

There will always be those clicks and those mean girls who are “too cool” to sit with you at the lunch table. It’s unfortunate that it has to be that way because it can make so many people feel like they aren’t worth enough when in reality they are.

As a college freshman, I have felt so much more at home. There will still be those “groups” and those girls, but the thing about it is NO ONE CARES. You can be as popular as you want to be and it really won’t matter because half the time you don’t even have to see the people you don’t want to see. You have your own group of friends and nothing else matters.

College is SO much better than high school because I have found friends that are willing accept me for who I am and they don’t care whether or not I’m “cool enough”. Thank you college for helping me find life-long friends who will be there for me no matter what. To high school: I haven’t missed you since I left.

Sincerely,

Grace
