    I used to be fun. I used to be a good conversationalist. I used to be outgoing and happy and energetic. I had friends, I had more-than-friends-friends. I was that girl, the one who got straight A’s and was in every club. I still am, but that’s all I am now. I study during my lunch break. I haven’t just hung out with my friends in two months. I haven’t even had a real conversation in three months. I just really want this year to end. I want to be accepted into a good school so I can move on with my life. I want out of this bubble, I want to breath again. I want to wake up and not instantly check the mailbox, I want to laugh, I want to smile. I’m sick of being some circus zoo animal, with teachers and universities judging every word I say, every extracurricular I’ve ever done, every essay I write for them. I feel like I’ve lost all my social skills, a price to pay for good extra-curriculars and above-average-but-probably-still-not-high-enough marks.I just want to feel like a person, a person with a life.

      once you get to college, the work is going to increase 100% and so is the opportunity to socialize. i think it would be best to learn balance now, instead of focusing all of your attention on one or the other. college is what you make it, so going in knowing you will have A LOT on your plate, and knowing the importance to balance school and fun will really, really help you šŸ™‚

      As a college freshman, I know exactly where you’re coming from. The end of the year can be really stressful and overwhelming as you really decide the next journey of your life. BUT, enjoy this time while you have it. I can’t stress enough how balancing friends and life is so important! Sometimes you need to put the application down and go out and have fun! College is a great time, but like college grad said, the work load increases but so does the fun load. Instead of focusing on the future, live in the present moment for right now and take time to enjoy life. Senior year is fun. The biggest regret I had my senior year moving to college was not maintaining the friendships I created in high school.
