3. High school

The four most dreaded years in a persons life, high school. 

 

Freshman year. Freshman year wasnt the best. I had lost about half my friends to another high school. I had terrible grades, my GPA was a little over 3. I didn't know how to handle all the homework and pressure. So I fell back into self harm. It wasn't too bad, I had a few marks here and there, none too serious. I wore band aids over them all the time, not wanting them to be seen. Freshman year was a major eye opener to me. I realized I had absolutely no idea how my future was going to end up, and I had a lot to learn about balancing my time and work. I was more into the idea of listening to music to calm me down. I was still listening to one direction, but I had added some local bands as well, like false puppet and cherri bomb. I struggled to pass my classes. I knew why was happening in class an could do those worksheets, but I would always fail tests because I couldn't consentrate in those types of situations. Some of my teachers realised that and didn't give me too much of a hard time, while others failed me.

 

Eight grade. I gained some weight over summer and lost a couple friends. My self harming was getting even worse and I had attempted suicide twice. I learned my Spanish teacher, who knew I couldn't do test an helped me, had recommend me to a different language. When I see her in the halls she acts all friendly and says hi, but behind my back didn't like me. I got into more honor classes and started doing more activities I liked. I joined yearbook, which is hands down my favorite class. You get pressured when it comes deadline time, but it's a fun experience and I made new friends in there. After a couple weeks into the year I was more self conscious about my weight. I lost 20 lbs in about four months. I felt like i was being judged and watched. I was still best friends with my jr high best friend, and one I had made as a freshman. On my instagram I followed a girl who said it was her second account, which inspired me to make a second account. I loved it. I got introduced to new music, I had people who I could make smile, and people who were always going to be there for me. 

 

Now. I've been clean for a couple months. I have good grades. And three best friends I wouldn't trade the world for. Im not as close with my family, but I know what I want to do with my life. I know now that I don't have to impress people with my hobbies or appearance. I still am tryin to lose a little bit of weight, but I'm going to do it a health way. I have saved almost 5 people's life on my second instagram. I'm going away after college to visit other countries and hopefully meet some of the people ive helped along the way. This is the story of my life.
