Young adults learn at this stage that not everything goes as they expect them to. Young men master the courage of approaching girls they like, while girls get firsthand experience of having boyfriends. They get to experience how sweet love is and how good it is to have someone, who thinks you are special and wants to be with you.Unfortunately, it is also the time when people experience their first breakups and it is devastating.The concept of life becomes clear here and the students get a glimpse of how the real world works.
It is a fun period in life, because teenagers have no sense of responsibility apart from studying. They start forming groups with other like-minded individuals.
Geeks form their reading clubs, musicians form bands, athletes build teams, actors hone their crafts in theater clubs, journalists are busy running the school magazine etc.
As I walked the half-mile down Piedmont Road, and then the left turn and another half mile up Noble Avenue, I would sing of my feelings.
Even though I have what every person thinks every kid wants, I would sing of how I would always be the best friend, and I would never have a special someone.
Unfortunately, most of high school relationships end as soon as they start.
It goes without saying therefore that high school life is the most formative period of a person’s life. It marks the time when we have just shed our baby skins and we are coming into our bodies. At this point, we are mature enough to recognize our interests, our passions and everything else we need to know about ourselves. Many consider their college lives to be the best, but to me high school is better, because it has more fun and less workload. Boys are transforming into young men, while girls are blooming into beautiful young women.The allies come to the aid of their comrades and they are able to ward off threats.Rivals are the competitors, who will strive to take away anything from you, for instance, your popularity, your girlfriend or even your lunch money. When they are dealt a heavy blow, they have to get up and move on. This is the time people become acquainted with the concept of love.It may also be unhealthy when students try to cheat their way into college.These competitions facilitate formation of allies and rivals.During the boring calculus classes we would pass folded notes on all the latest gossip news in school. Everyone was getting pranked, including me and we would do it beyond the school walls also.We would be giggling through all boring classes, without a care of what was being taught. We were also very cunning when it came to pranking our fellow students. In one instance, a classmate of ours decided to prank our substitute teacher. Sporting events were the highlights of the high school life.Since we knew each other very well, the parties were not chaotic.The only challenge we had was the host’s parents showing up before the party was over.
