Somewhere between the procrastination And the calls home complaining about roommates & boyfriends. . . Somewhere between the phone calls to old friends And the “I can’t wait to see you again’s”. .
. And somewhere between all of the changing & growing. . . And the pretending to study for tests And the downright not studying for tests. .
. I forgot what it was like to be in high school. 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.
I forgot that you can’t control falling in love And that you can’t make yourself fall in love. I learned that good food doesn’t really seem great until you can’t have it anymore And I learned that even I would grow to love soup, and macaroni ; cheese. I noticed that I get along better with my mother now than I ever did before and that wasn’t because she changed, but because I changed. I learned that going to college means making choices And that making choices can get you into trouble. I learned that it’s okay to mess up I learned that sometimes the things you want most you just can’t have.
I learned that the greatest thing about college isn’t the parties I learned that sometimes the things we want to forget are the things which we most need to talk about. I learned that once you get to college, Things don’t automatically get better. . . I learned that letters from friends are the most important thing And that sending cards to your friends makes you feel better.
Are the most important people to me in the world So this is a thank you to all of my friends Bibliography:
