The funny thing about friendship in high school

Well, to be honest, it doesn’t really exist. I guess I can’t really say that for the general population, but from my personal experience and other’s I have heard or seen. I don’t really know how to explain it the ‘perfect’ way, so I’m going to do my best to describe what I mean. High school is one of the worst stages in your life, for me, it’s the worst. I hate everything about high school, but what I hate the most is the fact you’re forced to stay with the same people for four years. For example, I am friends with people who don’t actually care about me, and don’t even try to understand and help me in difficult times. Even my ‘best friend’ is someone who I can’t count on very much. I am one of those people that will be there for someone, like, REALLY be there for you. I am that way because I’ve had to deal with a lot of shit in my life. My dad is an alcoholic/ addict and has struggled with this for most of my childhood. I had to grow up really fast. I had to learn the harsh reality of the world before any child should. Now I’m not saying that to get pity from anyone, because I am happy that it happened. It made me into the person I am today, and that is someone I can be proud of. Having to deal with that most of my childhood, and recently in my high school years, has opened my eyes even more. I am in high school, and I don’t have anyone that I can really look to in times of need. I usually try to stay strong, because that’s how I got through everything I have. But recently, things have been really crazy with school, boy troubles, college applications and deadlines, and now is when I need the most help from a friend, but I don’t have one…….That is a really pathetic to actually fathom and comprehend to myself. I know I’m not the only one that is going through this, but it’s sad that anyone should have to deal with this. I don’t really know why I decided to write about this…..I guess I feel alone right now, and it kinda sucks. I will get over it though. I’m a big girl. I’m just hoping this shit doesn’t happen in college.

Important questions to ask when finding a roommate for college!

What is your sleeping schedule like? 
Do you have any food allergies? 
Do you have a mini fridge? (I do)
Are you religious? 
Are you planning to rush?

Do you drink/do drugs?
Are you neat or messy?
Would you consider yourself an outgoing person?
What kinds of things do you like to do when you’re not in school? 
Do you go to sporting events? 
Do you have any pet peeves I should know about?
Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend? (I don’t judge). If so, will he/she visit often?
How do you feel about dating in general? 
What extracurricular activities do you plan to be in?
How do you feel about space?
Do you already have a preference for what dorm you want to live in?
What is your money situation? 
What are you planning to study? 
Do you have any medical issues I should know about?
What are your political views?
Would you like to ask me anything?

I’m trying to find a roommate for next year when I’m staying in the dorms. I thought I’d share with anyone who is going through,  or will in the future,  some important questions to ask. It’s good to ask, so you don’t end up with someone you don’t agree with. This will help make the perfect choice, so you can have a kick ass freshmen year. I know I plan to!

Yours truly
