Be true to yourself. That's something everyone says and no one means. No one wants you to be yourself. They want you to be the version of yourself that they like. -Marie Lu (The Young Elites)

In kindergarten, we prepare for elementary school

In third grade, we prepare for middle school

In eighth grade, we prepare for high school

In twelfth grade, we prepare for College

In College, we prepare for the real world

In the real world, we prepare for all to go wrong

When will we stop preparing and start living

I wrote this in Social Studies when I saw a sign my teacher had up that said something along the lines of, "Be quite in study hall this is how it will be in High School." It made me think about how in each grade its always, prepare, prepare, prepare. Its never live and enjoy it.
