I can assure you every single freshman is in the same shoes you are. Some will show it, some will hide it but every last one will be as nervous and
lost and confused and in overdrive the first week or so. Then when semester changes and classes change, it'll happen again.
Meet your current friends there before the first day bell rings. Go a little early before the first day if possible or an hour early and seek out
your classes so you know where they are. Find 2 routes to each class if possible in case it's needed. Cuz just like in the adult world, there will
be a jerk or two that ya just gotta avoid.
Never ditch your values to be in the so called "in crowd". Stay true to you and you got 99% of the puzzle,solved. You'll meet new friends, lose old
friends, find friends that turn out to be jerks and find jerks who end up life long friends.
Just do you and the rest will fall into line.
And one final truth as we have all been there and so will you, and your kids and their kids...... No matter who is who in high school, none of it
matters 10 years out. The cool kids may be cool or not. The nerd may grow to be the hottest model. The burnout will own a million dollar business.
The class Valedictorian may become homeless. The poorest student another Bill Gates. Looks matter less. Clothing and hair means squat. A pimple is
like meh. We focus on hating our jobs and bills rofl.
So enjoy it. Relax, breathe and have fun.
Cuz those 4 years will be over in a blink and all you'll have is yearbooks til college starts and ya do it all over again.
Breathe and sleep easy.
You GOT this.
