I was entering my senior year of high school and I had nothing but the highest of expectations. Coming out of my junior year was a little rough because it was not my year academically or socially. So for my senior year, I vowed that I would study hard and create friendships that I knew would last a lifetime. Being a volleyball player, I started my senior year earlier because of all the workouts, practices, scrimmages, and camps. There were five seniors on the team, including me. We are all practically best friends and hung out all the time. There was one girl who I specifically close with named Natalie and we have been friends since we were in the third grade. I honestly thought that Natalie and I were going to be great friends for our entire life but I was mistaken. After the first semester of school ended we had winter break and it was great because I was able to hang out with all my friends, go on vacation and continue playing volleyball for my club team. Natalie and I did all the things we were used to doing together like sleepovers, baking, and going on crazy adventures. Finally, it was back to going to school to push through the last semester ever in high school. It all did not seem real and I felt as though I was too young to be going off to college to do my own thing. I was sad because I did not want to leave my friends. I knew once it was time to go to college, it was going to be difficult because no one in my class was attending Slippery Rock. I was in no way, shape or form ready for that to happen. I was comfortable with all my surrounding and my schedule and when I go to college all that would be changed. Although I was getting sad of the school year almost coming to an end, there was one event that I was most excited... ... middle of paper ... ... it prevent me from continuing to have a good experience at the rest of the retreat. Once we got back to school we kept our distance from Natalie despite her really trying to talk to us. I was happy that I was finally letting her go because I was fed up with being treated as though I was not important enough for her. After a while of this going on I thought that it would be right of me to text Natalie and tell her exactly why I was keeping my distance. I explained how I felt ever since third grade when we became friends up till high school. She never replied to my message which I was really taken back by. I really thought that she would be understanding of my feelings but I was wrong. I guess I did the right thing by letting her go. This whole experience really showed me what a true friend was and how I need to let someone go based on how they treat me as a person.
