So, I’ve been wondering what to say about the whole post-high school thing. Like most teenagers, I was beyond ready to get out of high school. Sure, there were lots of people that tell you that high school is the best time of your life. Then there are the people who tell you that high school is the worst time of your life. Then there are the people who tell you that college is the best time of your life. Or the worst.
Well, I’m here to tell you that that’s all a bunch of hooey.
There are moments at all times of our lives that are the best and the worst. Some of which are, of course, during high school and also after it. The key is to just make the most out of your time, no matter what stage of life you’re in.
Because even if it’s bad? The absolute worst moments? They will pass and someday, they’ll make a screamingly funny story to tell your kids or your friends. Trust me.
Except, you know, that time your pants caught on the door handle while you were doing that campus tour and ripped all the way down the middle and you decided you needed to go to a different college where people didn’t know what color your underwear were.
No, wait, that’s pretty funny too.
But none of that’s really talking about what Diana asked me to talk about, not exactly. What is life like after high school?
Well, a lot of stuff is the same. You’ll still get confused and befuddled. You’ll still be right (some of the time) and wrong (a lot). You’ll still fall in love, fall out of love, work hard, slack off…
The biggest difference? The fact that you’re starting on the portion of your life where you’re expected to be in control. Or to start taking control.
But let me tell you another secret.
Even when you become an “adult” and have a responsible job and possibly a kid or two of your own, and you pay your taxes every year and mow your lawn and all of those things? Part of you will still be going “Whoa. Dude. I don’t know what I’m doing! Why are all these people looking at me like I’m an adult??”
And that’s perfectly okay.
