Saturday night was homecoming, super fun and exciting! It made me realize that senior year is a year full of 4/4’s, aka lasts, but also lots of firsts or 1/1’s.
It’s the first time (normally) that we apply to college, the first time we get accepted, waitlisted, or denied from/to a college, the first time we graduate (eighth grade graduations don’t count), etc.. It’s also our last first and last day of school, our last homecoming, our last prom, our last pep rallies, our last high school memories.
It is a very bittersweet feeling I get when I think about this. I’m happy to be growing, experiencing new things, and to be moving on to the next part of my life, but I’m also sad to be leaving, to be growing up, to being thrust into responsibilities. Quite frankly I’m also really scared. There’s so much that can go wrong and that I can mess up, but there’s so much that can go right and that I won’t mess up… hopefully. Being a high school senior is very overwhelming, but it’s so exciting at the same time.
I am very thankful that Mrs. Lee and Mrs. Knapp are our class’ sponsors because they really go above and beyond for us, and I really do think that they make senior year very special for us.
With all that being said, here’s to a year of firsts and lasts! I hope this year is amazing for each and every one of you, and that your post-high school plans work out! Thank you for so many great memories and I’m looking forward to many more!
