Friendship groups. 'Cliques'. High school social life... the very reason why I wanted out of High School as soon as I started. Everything about them made and still makes me angry. I want as many people to read what I wish that I could of read back in school.
On a lighter note, friendship outside of school and after school is nothing like what you are dealing with right now. It's less complicated, more meaningful, and most importantly- real.
Don't get me wrong. Making friends and building friendship at school is really fun and super important. It is the first time that you're making conscious decisions of who you enjoy and who don't enjoy spending your spare time with. The friends you make at school are also most likely the friends you'll never forget. But once high school comes around, hormones are high and everything is still relatively new.
School Friendship Groups = Cliques
In school, everybody is automatically labelled. You didn't sign up for it when you applied for the school, you just got dragged into it like an unwanted infection. But this is really just something you will have to get used to. Not in a harsh and forceful way, but because the minute high school finishes, it'll be like it didn't even exist. You'll find yourself two years after graduation that all those students low and high on the 'popularity scale' are now in all sorts of positions; some doing better, some doing worse. And none of that was determined by what they were labelled in high school. I promise.
