These years are damn frustrating! Especially when you come to an end of your high-school years. Every single one is a pain, exclusively senior year. College applications to fill, SAT scores to await, finals to study for. It’s a load of stress on your shoulders. Then we picture those so-called friends. We all lose each other. You may think there’s a way to stay in-touch, but the truth is you've all moved on. High –school is a tough, dramatic place. Some may call it a sanctuary, while I favor those who refer to it as the devil’s creation. Adults will claim they've been there, done that. They may also say to just “Suck it up!" It isn't that easy… High-school students aren't necessarily the balance of naughty and nice. For the most part, the scale seems to be leaning towards naughty, the majority of times. Don’t get me wrong. Not everyone is like this. It is difficult to find your true, loyal, compassionate friends. Trust me, they're on the verge of extinction!
The few friends collected, however are the ones who allow us to look back at the highly miserable years and smile. They help us make it through the four horrid years. The unforgettable memories keep out the brutal agony that may come back to bite us in the ass. It’s not often that these true heroes (friends) are found.
