In 13 days begin our final years of High School, this part of our life journey is almost over. The friends we make, the things we did, the little mistakes we’ve done in the past seventeen years don’t matter anymore.
A little scary to think we will be seniors, we will be the top of the chain, being a role model to the new students and even to the existing underclassmen. Though we will be at the top, soon after, we will be freshmen in college and we will be scared as heck. Trying to figure out who we are, trying to figure out what we want to do the rest of our lives.
Have you ever thought of what you really want to be? Where you want to live? Who do you want to be with? On one side of the sea-saw sits one thing that’s in my heart, and on the other side sits something that i will easily be able to make a living. Up and down, toying with my emotions. Quite a scary thought but don’t think about it too often just yet. The time will come.
“Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived.” -Star Trek
How you chose to live your senior year is your choice. You can choose to be swamped with APs, school work, college apps, and stress yourself over it whilst wondering why senior year sucks so much.
you can be swamped with all those, yet still find time in solitude, find time to enjoy senior year with friends whom you might not see ever again. Take in everything you do, because it might not happen again.
If I were you, I’d choose to enjoy it because senior year only happens once. And every minute you spend being stressed out is another minute you’ve wasted, another minute of happiness you could’ve gained.
See you all soon,
One thought on “Just like that begins a new journey”
ah.. good times. senior year is the time when not wanting to do homework hits the hardest. its also your last year to tower everyone before you’re back to being at the bottom rung again. you’ll have plenty of time to think of your life while your in college, so the same thing applies there, enjoy your first year cuz its the only first year of college you’ve got.
kudos to you jo, have fun messing around the year =P go senioritis!
