When I first saw her we were barely in high school by that point. We were still in our orientation, known in Kellenberg as Triple A. She was not in any of my classes, but she was in my chorus. I remember talking to her a little bit throughout our freshman year, but I was on the football team, so I saw her a lot there, because she was a cheerleader. But a lot of people forget that I was not really into her at that point, there was another girl that I liked who was in a few of my classes.
In our sophomore year, I didn't have any classes with her, but I was on the football team again, so I was able to see her every Saturday at the games. Again, I was looking to go out with someone else who again, was in a few of my classes, but I was still looking at her.
It was in junior year of high school that I really started to fall head over heels for her. She was in one class of mine, our American History I class, and I'm not going to lie, I really tried to show off in that class. I remember trying to ask her out after months of deliberation, in February of 2014. She was already taken by a guy from Chaminade. I was too late. I kept on with my crush of her, stayed friends with her, and was always hoping for another shot.
Our senior year we did not have any classes, but she was a leader on the Cheerleading team, and I was the captain of the Bowling team, so we did talk a lot because that was what the leaders of the teams in our high school did. She always said hello to me going from my first period class to my second. We had a great time out senior year, but the crowning moment came when we were in Disney together.
We spent a lot of time together as friends, walking around especially at Hollywood Studios, and honestly throughout the entire trip. The hard part was that she was still in a relationship with that guy from Chaminade, so I really couldn't do or say anything that I wanted to do. I remember that experience a lot and I always will.
After graduation I saw her once, and that was at the yearbook ceremony in August. I have talked to her a bit, and we are still friends, and I am very happy for that. Hopefully in the future we will be a couple, but for now that doesn't seem that likely.
Anyways, I wanted to write this, because maybe someone will read this, and not do what I did, and wait for years to say how you truly feel. Be smarter than I was please!
