I’m sitting here writing this on a Friday after school. The end of the day, the end of the week, and the end of the first semester of my senior year. It’s very weird to think that I have gone through (and survived:) 7 semesters of high school. The thoughts and feelings going through my head right now are super weird and random. While it’s not quite time for me to leave home, there is a lot of closure happening. It’s been hard, I’m not gonna lie. And while I wish that I could freeze time and stop everything from moving too quickly, I know that it’s just life and something I have to deal with.
I’m excited for the journey that lies ahead of me and know that life will take me on a miraculous adventure, but for now I just want to “stop and smell the roses”. Remember every single person, place and thing that has impacted my life in ways I’ll never be able to express.
