Welcome to High School

January 9, 2008
By Alyssa Burrell, Santaquin, UT

Take a bowl of chaos
add a cup of hurt feelings, a
dash of isolation, and a
teaspoon of fake smiles.
Bake with pressure
for three years -
Frost with trying to fit in and
sprinkle with the
crushing truth that you don't.
Serve to teenagers
who don't know what
they're in for.

Wow, you have really captured the essence of my High School days. Don't worry, though, things get a little better with age. You begin to realize that you are better off making yourself happy. Unfortunately, it is a stage everyone must go through.
