You know what sucks?
When all your friends are older than you. I don't have very many friends, but the ones I do have are at least a grade above me. When I'm a senior in highschool, I'll be all alone. >_>

I just want to let you know that I hear you.
My high school days are well behind me now (which I'm really happy about) but when I was your age I was in a very similar position.
I'd gone most of my life without having any close friends, but when we moved in my sophomore year I met a group of really great people--almost all of whom were a year or more older than me. I enjoyed our time together very much and as their graduation grew closer I was devastated. It's so much worse to be without friends after you've had them then to never know what you were missing.
I won't say it wasn't hard, and that I didn't make some poor decisions in how I dealt with it (because I did). But I did get though it.
You've probably heard this a hundred times, but college is a whole new kettle of fish, and one worth waiting for*. A year seems like a long time when you are in high school but in the grand scheme of your life it will go quickly.
**I actually had to wait to go to college until I was old enough to go, but lots of community colleges offer classes to high school students. You might consider a class or two if you live near a good one--then you have a new place to build relationships, without having to worry about age.

I've actually had the opposite happen to me in high school... most of my friends were 2-3 years younger than me. Now all of my friends are around 30 (I'm 20) so I never had friends my age since grammar school. O.o
I wouldn't find anything wrong with it really, it's not abnormal or anything. I'm sure you will make friends with other seniors.
