Metaphore for High School

As we all know, everything is a metaphore for high school. So, yesterday, I discovered a metaphore for high school. I went with my friend Melina on "Bus Trip To Nowhere". We went into this loud, over-heated, over-crouded bus, with garbage bags covering the window so that we couldn't see where we were going. How is this a metaphore for High School? Well, in high school, most of us aren't completely sure where we are going. Sure, we could find out if we wanted to, but that would kinda ruin the fun! At school, it's hot, over-crowded, and really loud. Just like the bus. But the thing is, you would think that when we got to our destination, we would be doing something fun. And we did do something fun, we just didn't exactly expect that we would end up at IMAX to see some documentries (which were really good, btw). So, I guess that means that even when our trip through school is done, we'll still be learning, but hopefully in not a so traditional way. We'll learn through experiences and such, like we do now. I mean, people offer me advice all the time, but do I take it? No, usually not. I trust experience and its advice far more than i trust any one person's advice. I mean, sure, sometimes we should listen to what people tell us, but listening to ourselves is an important thing that they don't teach us at school. People so often say to listen to the world around you, but I think that the advice of experience is far more trustworthy than any person, book, or comittee. I can hear my own reasoning far more clearly than anyone else's and my experience is a part of me. I know what it wants, and I know why it's telling me to do something. I guess when we get off that bus, into the real world, we'll use experience as a teacher far more than people. People make excuses. Experiences can't lie.
