Somewhere between the procrastination
And the homework
And the incessnt forwards
And the friendships
And the nasty cafeteria food
And the calls to each other complaining about crushes
Somewhere between the phone calls to old friends
And the "I miss you's"
And the "I love you's"
And the "What are we doing tonight's"
And somewhere between all of that changing; growing...
Somewhere between the classes
And the skipping classes
And the studying for tests
And the pretending to study for tests
And the downright not studying for tests...
I forgot
I forgot what high school is all about
I forgot what it meant to cry
I forgot that pretending to be happy doesn't make you happy
and that pretending to be smart doesn't make you smart
I forgot that you can't just forget the past in fear of the
I forgot that you can't control falling in love
and that you can't make yourself fall in love
I learned that I can love
I learned that it's ok to mess up
And it's ok to ask for help
And it's ok to feel like crap
I learned it's ok to complain and whine to all your friends
for a whole day.
I learned that sometimes the things you want most you just
can't have.
I learned that the greatest thing about high school isn't
the parties or the drinking or the hook-ups...
Its the friendships, which means taking chances.
I learned that sometimes the things we want to forget are
the things which we most need to talk about.
I learned that conversations and letters from friends are
the most important thing
And that sending cards to your friends makes you feel better
But, bascially, I just learned that my friends both old and
new are the most important people to me in the word and
without them I wouldn't be how I am today.

Got this out of a friends profile.... thought it was cute
and somewhat true
