A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?


119. Awkwardness times five


25th September 2016

So college is… something else.

During my time at sixth form I split my time between my humble school close to home and a college forty minutes away. It’s weird. I don’t know what it is quite yet.

I’m only there twice a week so it’s a new experience to experience? I don’t know how to put this, forgive me. It’s awkward, but I think that’s because everyone is meeting everyone for the first time and they don’t know how to say hi how are you, and engage in a conversation just yet. For once, I’m not as awkward as usual and actually want to talk to them. That’ll probably wear off in time.

I’ve made one new friend. Yay, new experience unlocked. But it’s new and getting there.

It’s also weird going from the social norm of calling your teachers miss and sir, to calling them by their normal names. I can tell you that it’s very hard to break that habit after five years of it. But they trust us more, they entrust us with more responsibility than we first thought. By that I mean the copious amounts of homework due in a couple of days. God that is something I wasn’t expecting.

I like this arrangement though. College life lets me meet new people, see new things and get student discount because you have to have a student ID. Sixth Form life allows me to have free periods where I can sleep in on a morning, and talk to more to people that I never got to talk to before.

I actually had lunch with what I would consider the ‘Populars’ and talked makeup with them. That’s something I wouldn’t have imagined in a million years.

It may be busy and hard to navigate sometimes but it’s a new hurdle and I love a challenge.

P.S. Speaking of awkwardness, a stranger butt-dialed me earlier. It was painful yet nice at the same time because either of us didn’t know what to say. It ended with something like:

STRANGER: So… I’m [insert name here]

ME: Okay?

STRANGER: God I’m sorry, uhh yeah, bye.

ME: Bye?

I’m not the only one that’s awkward!

God I’ve said awkward a total of… five times in this entry.
