i am sorry to hear how you have been feeling alone these days. i can understand how your senior year of high school would be leading you to feeling stress. it sounds like you didn't expect to reach the finish line and now that you are so closed, you are unsure of what to do. i can't really give you advice because you are you and i am me, but definitely reach out for support and talk about what is stressing you out with school. the best way to try to balance school and personal life is to try to keep organized notes and try to use platforms like google calendar to stay organized.

understand that you are a crossroads in your life. a lot of uncertainty and confusion comes with it. you've done nothing wrong. concentrate on your education and get the best grades you can. think about your future - how you want to live and what you want to accomplish. put yourself first. don't worry about the finish line - there isn't any finish line. that's a burden you put on yourself and you don't need it. enjoy what is available to you. be kind to yourself. and if you feel alone, recognize that everyone feels alone at times. it isn't a bad thing. it is an aspect of life. it won't always be that way. good luck with eveything!

alone as in you don’t have any friends? then make some friends and go to games and dances. life isn’t a race there isn’t a finish line. we go through life in different ways and at different rates. you say you’re a senior in high school? then concentrate on going to college and figuring out what you want to do with your life. being a senior means you’re almost an adult so you should’ve had an idea of where you want to go to college and your major. it’s ok if you don’t have it all figured out though. nobody ever really does anyway, so no pressure. if you are so stressed out than take a mini vacation to clear your mind and be less stressed. do a spa day or things to release tension. it might clear your mind on things like the finish line, unless you are saying you don’t think you want to graduate or you fear graduation. if so, than i say, wake up because you can’t be a kid forever, unless you want to a kiddult all your life. i suggest taking time to do school work before anything else since your grades matter and this first semester your grades are mailed to colleges. sorry if i wasn’t much help, but i hope i helped anyway. good luck and hope you get into the college of your choice.

im here to tell you that if you play your cards poorly it only gets worse. at least for me it did. i kinda lost all my close friends after highschool, spent 4 years in college never making friends and never wanting to go to school, now i’m stuck doing crap work 9-5. id say to consider what you care about in life and what makes you happy. and focus on that, i mean college and stuff is overrated it’s only really great for stem (i did comsci but switched to animation). but you can find viable jobs in other places for much cheaper and less time like in trades. dont worry too much about grades honestly. i don’t know what your passions are maybe you wanna become a cardiovascular surgeon or something but just you have options out there incase something doesn’t work out. best to find out what you wanna do sooner though so you don’t waste your time like me. and cherish those moments with your friends and whatnot and you can put more focus on your personal life and joys
