You got better at talking to strangers. From your perspective it was a change of scenery and a "reset", but it was your mindset and attitude that changed, because there are smart focused people and there are assholes at college too. They give people who are strong and run fast just as many scholarships as people who study hard and get good grades.
I don't know about that. We live in different places, each of them having a different atmosphere. We're all different as well, but we then become friends without having to relate to anything personal or anything else. For me, it almost feels as If each and every person around me was almost the same, regardless of who they were. Sometimes, no one really talks to each other at all. It almost sounds as If you probably lived somewhere different from Afternoon's.
In my place, talk is limited. Everyone has to focus all the time because of procrastination, which is a big deal. As a result, most students start to act out of their age as If they were adults already and just focus on the big picture. As for Popularity, it isn't a big thing in my place, so we aren't divided (in fact Popularity doesn't even exist.) The fact that almost every teacher in my school is friends with a lot of students supports the fact that Popularity, so we aren't strangers to each other at all.
So yeah, what I'm saying is that you probably lived in a place different from me and Afternoon's. Although I feel Popularity seems a little irrelevant when it comes to college because we all have urgent matters to attend to.
