Looking back it is obivious how much I have changed in the past two years. I now start to wonder what caused this change? Is it the people I have surrounded myself with? is it my own attitude toward things? or have I just grown up?
I have become more independent, Stronger, Less timid, More self motivated, A perfectionist, Drive, and much much more things.
Thankfully I am one of those few who have changed for the better while many of those I knew from high school have take a change for the worst.
While at my brothers graduation I thought it was funny how much those kids worried about trivial things like high school flings and spending every waking moment with their friends. Not wanting to burst anyone bubble I didn’t say that in all likely hood they would never see nor talk to any of those people again, and if they did it would just be the occasional acknowledgement of existence. Even worse that that those people who were their friends in high school might just be their competition in college and in the future job market.
The future from high school is never as picturesque as you imagine it but one good thing does come out of it. You gain a new prespective on life you learn who your real friends are and you also learn how much you were able to put up with in high school. You gain freedom at the price of responsibility, you gain enlightement at the expense of your freedom, and you attain your dreams at the expense of time of your life.
