Coming into High school as a freshman, I thought it was going to be the hardest four years of my life. I was never so wrong.

We have all seen those teen movies and shows in which during lunch students are able to leave and go get food off campus. So why can’t that be a reality? I was pondering this question when my mother actually brought this up to me and how when she was in high school, she was able to drive to a fast...
