After 2 years, the required blog post are finally coming to an end. I can’t say I’m upset. Being forced to write is not something I have ever enjoyed. They’re not straight up torture, but they are a nuisance. However, this is my last post (like there is a 1% I’ll keep this up) and I can honestly say this is kind of sad. And that is only because of what that really means: school is ending.
Four years ago, all I thought about was getting out of that school. I’ve never hated (strongly disliked at some points) coming to high school. But I was ready to go to TAMU and start my ‘adult’ life. And now, literally standing on that threshold, it is really bittersweet. I’m really excited to go to college and be have my own responsibilities and study what I actually want to. But I’m also sad to leave behind this routine I’ve followed for four years. To leave behind everyone but a few close friends. To leave behind my teachers. To leave behind the familiarity of high school.
I know whatever is in store for me next year will be great. I’m still really excited to go to college and start my life. I’m ready to meet new people, move to the dorms (that’s still nerve-racking though), and begin classes. However, that means saying goodbye to the people who have spent 4 years with me, moving out of my house, and ending relatively easy classes. I suppose any time like this in life is going to have two sides; this is definitely no exception.
Thinking back on the time I have spent in high school, I’m really proud of the things I accomplished: academically, socially, athletically, and everything in between. And while it is sad and upsetting to close this chapter on my life, I’m ready to. I know it’s time to move on and I’m okay with that. I’m ready to see what life has in store. Hopefully the next chapter in my life is as good, if not better than my time spent in high school.
Thanks for the memories AMCHS
