As I am approaching the midpoint of my Junior year, I am realizing that I have learned a lot more than just Algebra or English throughout high school.

I have realized that in high school, you do not just learn about chemistry or read stories in English. You learn about building relationships and you also learn how to get out of toxic ones. You realize that you are closer to the girl that sits besides you in class than the girl you have called your best friend since the third grade.

Your learn who friends really are and you learn who you are as a person and what you deserve. You find out who you are going to become and who will be by your side the rest of the way.

The biggest thing you learn in high school is how to accept. You have to accept that you are going to be good at some things and bad at others. You learn to accept heartbreak and broken friendships and you accept the idea of all the joys that are to coming ahead after the storm passes.

High school is a perspective. Some people see football games and proms, others see honor roll and planning their future and a few don’t ever even see their senior year. In a way, it is unfair that the hardest four years of our lives is the same time we are making or breaking our future.

High school is a true roller coaster ride but it is the true idea of future success that should drive you each and every day.
