Entering my third year of college, I have to tell some of the younger crowd here a few things. Now, I'm only 20, (21 in 3 months) but we have a few kids here and you need to know something: Middle school and high school mean nothing in terms of your social life. Ever. If you believe that it is important to remain in a constant, near flawless, ultimate in "cool" sort of state, you're wrong. High school is about having fun and that's what you should do. I wish I hadn't have taken it so seriously myself. Chances are that you will never interact with these people again, so have fun! Anyone else realize this after leaving high school? I sadly didn't realize this until I started college.
