    When Will I Feel At Home Here?

    I don't even know where to begin. High school was a struggle for me because I was "the smart kid" or whatever. I felt pressure from my friends, family, coaches, and teachers to apply to a "good college." I go through all the motions every poor high school senior goes through...
