Freshman year: Maybe your best friend since elementary school isn’t there for you anymore, and you slowly split apart. Nobody was mad or did anything; it just happened.
That’s high school, split apart or stay together. “It’s sad knowing when you have such a great friendship with someone, it’s sad to see it go,” said freshman Gracelyn Cauffman.
A survey conducted on NPHS freshmen said that 29 percent of students have different friends than they started high school with. Along with that, only 13 percent have the same friends.“I think it’s a good thing to make new friends and meet new people,” said Cauffman. For freshman Serenity Little, “I still have the same friends, but there’s been a lot of drama. I try to stay out of it.”
Burning bridges, according to Urban Dictionary is “one of the worst experiences in middle to high school.” “To burn bridges is to break away from a close friend, who you have consistently been on good terms and have had happy memories together.” This in fact has probably happened in your own life. “Some of them [friendships] are probably good [the friendships that have ended] they were trying to bring me down,” said Little.
At the end of the day, we still learn math with these people. It’s preparation for the day we step across that graduation stage and are on our own.“I don’t know what the future holds, but I love who I’m surrounded by,” said Cauffman.
