When people say high school goes by fast, they really mean it. 

One day you’re a freshman struggling to find your classes in a big building, the next you’re a senior about to graduate and walk down the aisle at graduation. Your childhood has gone by in a flash and now you need to work, go to college (if you want), and get a home. 

I personally thought it all went by slowly until about two weeks ago, when I realized I was going to be going to college and graduating from high school in two weeks. It’s insane to think about now, actually getting to the end of this experience — having made close friends with students and teachers, and then you’re leaving. 

Making memories for so many years on both campuses hurts when you have to go. Of course, we can all come back and visit, but those memories won’t be made anymore during high school life with friends. 

I’m really glad some classes I have are doing special things for seniors, like having a senior piece in choir. I am extremely thankful to all of my teachers for everything they’ve done for me. Other staff members and even custodians have done a lot for me, and I am so thankful for all of them.
