High school is a really awkward time for most people — so if you’re going through it right now, and wondering to yourself why life is so cruel, don’t worry. You are certainly not alone. It is one of the most embarrassing times of your life, and you are going to do so many things that are going to make you smack your head in amazement later on in your life.
