I feel like my whole life I've always counted on the fact that I will have more time, never thinking the clock would run out. But here I am, with merely hours left of a whole chapter of my life. That's the problem with time, you spend so much of it wishing it away, and then in the blink of an eye it's gone. To quote the great Dr. Seuss, "How did it get so late so soon?".
Though I've spent a lot of my high school days complaining about how miserable it was, now that it's all over I'm becoming a bit nostalgic. I'm a believer that every day and experience shapes you into the person you are going to be, and all things happen for a reason. The classrooms, halls, classmates, teachers, have all played a huge role in shaping me into the person I am today. High school is where everything happens for the first time, the joys, the friendships, the heartache, where we become the people we are supposed to be. You don't realize it in the moment, but looking back it is all so crystal clear. So many times that we all take for granted, just because we were promised we would have a million more, all coming to a sudden halt.
It's the last hurrah, every moment of the past 13 years has lead to this moment right here. The moral of the story is, appreciate the time you have when you have it, because all of the sudden life as you know it will flash right before your eyes. Don't be afraid when life as you know it ends, because there will always be something amazing around the corner. These last moments fill me with both joy and nostalgia, but looking back it has been one hell of a ride. You know, endings are always going to be a bit sad, even when there is something great to look forward to on the other side.
Here's to the end of one chapter, and the beginning of another!
How do you remember your high school days?
