When you’re a senior the last few months of school zip on by. There are only 14 days left of school now and I can’t help but wonder how it all went by so damn fast. A lot of seniors think of graduation as the end of an incredible experience. I, however, see it differently. Either way, it’s great to remember how you got where you are today. Below is my journey through highschool.
Freshman year: A time when I had a fear of teachers and upperclassmen. I was overwhelmed by faces I didn’t recognize and friends that I didn’t know yet. I tried out for my first play and got in. Drama became a huge part of my life and the people I met because of Drama would become my friends forever. I worked really hard on my homework and found school to be a breeze. I excelled in everything I tried to do and ended the semester taking journalism.
Sophomore year: A time when I wanted to get on everybody’s good side. I knew a lot of upperclassmen from plays. I added newspaper to my schedule at the very last minute (just the day before school started). I started out on the newspaper staff and right off the bat I’m given the title of an editor–something that usually doesn’t happen to sophomores. I continue my involvement in drama and make it to All-State….twice. This is also the year when we all discovered that Mr. Hildreth would no longer serve as a drama teacher. Everyone involved in drama worried about the future of the department. I continued in newspaper, becoming the number one staff member in the class. At the end of the year I was awarded co-editor in chief with Bea Rendon
Junior Year: Newspaper took over my life. I started working at Carlos O’Kelly’s and was in the fall play. My workload went on overload and I tried my hardest to keep my grades up. That didn’t work out so well. My perfect GPA went on a decline. The newspaper looked good….most issues. And it ended receiving a gallup award. That was cool.
Senior year: It’s all a blur.
Today: Is the beginning.
