Finally I had gotten friends. Finally I was not bored. Graduation, however, is going to ruin that. Many of my friends are seniors and once next week is over, I will never see them again. That means the people I hangout with before school, during school, at lunch, and on the weekends will no longer be there. Yes, I have friends who are not seniors, however, it is still difficult.
To stop myself from being lonely, I am now walking around school during lunch and talking with my younger friends. Those friends, however, have their own friend groups. I know they do not mind me joining them but I still do not want to intrude on them. Many of them have told me not to worry and stop being awkward. I try but I honestly am struggling with not being awkward in front of them. They tell me to just join in on the conversation, but half the time I do not even know what they are talking about! Thankfully we only have two more weeks of school. I will try to fit in with this first group by the end of this week. If not, I will go with another friend to his friend group the next week.
I am lucky, however, that all my friends are understanding and are helping me with my social problems. So if any of you are reading this, THANK YOU!
Now, my word of advice for today is to make friends in every grade. Do not just make friends with seniors, because once they graduate you will be lonely. Also, during the year make multiple friends and hangout with multiple friend groups. Having multiple friend groups may be an advantage later on in the year.
