High school can be rough! You have bundles of homework and to pre-pare for college. I feel like you have less friends in high school, then you do in grade school, you have all these friends and you’re always spending time together, but once you get in high school, I feel like you lose all your friends. Once you go into high school I feel you get to know who your real friends are. I try not to get too close to friends in high school because you never know if they will stick with you or they end of leaving. Sometime you can get too busy with your work or job and school that you don’t really have time with your friends. Once I found out who my real friends are I felt a whole lot better because I knew that I could count on them. Yeah, we all …show more content…
I had seen one of my best friends Rebecca in the store. She was with one of her friends from her other high school. Rebecca had just moved here to Galatia from Carbondale a few weeks ago. We had really got close when she first moved here. I stopped and smile and said “Hi”. She just looked at with a disgusted look and walk away with her friend. As I was thinking to myself why didn’t she say hi or anything, I then realize that maybe she wasn’t a good friend.

Don’t go and be friends with people who make you feel that you’re not worth something or people who don’t make you happy. I think leaving high school means losing your friends, even if you don’t want to. Getting close to your friends can be a mistake because they may not be your actual true friend and can at any time turn on you. Once you leave high school and leave to go to college you’ll realize that those true friends weren’t your friends. Yes, you may be friends with them on social media, but that doesn’t mean anything. In high school you and your friends had so much in common, but when you leave, you’ll realize you and your friends will change. Don’t be afraid to get close to your friends, just make sure that you pick the right ones, ones that will be there for you and not turn on you, the ones that want to visit and hang out every
