I remember people telling me about the change going from high school to University, in regards to how there is so little structure in your life. If that was a big change for people, then it doesn’t get any bigger than high school every week for six years, to nothing.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m currently loving my life and year off, but waking up and being able to do anything is awesome and scary at the same time. It’s awesome that I am able to spend a whole day reading The Walking Dead comics and re watching old Survivor episodes. It’s scary how I can spend a whole day doing nothing. Literally nothing. So while high school was such a effort to get through, it really was safety behind bars.
