This photograph immediately brings a smile to my face. The picture is of me and all of my closest friends on the night of Prom. Rather than grades and extracurricular activities, I believe the most important part of high school is the relationships your build: relationships with your classmates, relationships with your school, relationships with your counselors and teachers. Here I am, in this photograph, not taking a moment for granted. I have heard a monotonous amount of times that high school is the best four years of your entire life. Maybe it is because I haven’t lived any other part of my life, but at this point, I can absolutely agree with that. You only ever get two high school Prom nights your whole life. You only ever get four high school homecomings your whole life. Why take these moments for granted and not embrace them? High school is about experiencing new things with your friends. High school is about learning to show spirit. Most importantly, high school is about growing as a person, and discovering who you really are, and what people in your life matter the most.
