A 10th-grader from Saint Maria Goretti High School recently e-mailed me to ask how I survived high school.
High school was an adventure. I think that is why I enjoyed it so much. Every day I found some new way to challenge myself. It was like an incredible journey that I needed to succeed in to feel proud.
There were some days that I despised everything about high school, but there were very few of those. Now, as I look back on my experiences, I realize that those were the times when I was having a bad day.
I didn't think high school was very cool when I was in it, but my perspective has changed since I graduated last June. There are so many things that I didn't do that I wish I would have and things that I did do that I wish I wouldn't have.
