Junior Retreat

It's funny how you can see someone every day and not know anything about them.
Each year at my high school, we're required to go on a retreat. Freshman year we stay in the gym all day and do all sorts of activities. It's not that great, especially since you don't know that many people as a freshman. Sophomore year, girls go to one place, and guys go to another, and you spend the length of a school day there. Junior year, you spend a night at this retreat center.
It was so great. I'm not going to go into too much detail, but I learned so much about the people in my class, God and myself. It's crazy the stories that some people have, and you'd never even guess it. I had the best group and the best leader, and everyone was so awesome.
This retreat helped me realize that people don't view me as badly as I think they do, and that I don't give myself enough credit. It helped me realize that people do care, and they do want to help.
It was honestly just a really cool experience, and I can't wait until Senior Retreat next year.
