The last full day of high school. I was pretty much done with everything after 2nd period- 0 period finished math final, 1st period tested car project, and 2nd period had Gov final. Don’t know what my grades are at and I don’t really want to know, but I just hope I didn’t get any C’s. Lewis’ class I was late to cause I was buying Forever stamps from the post office- wrote letter to myself that Lewis will be sending to us in 4 years. 4th period crashed Lewis’ class again and got to hang with Connie and @jennipurrjin and the guys. 5th period just did nothing, but got to talk to Jimmy and Gilbert and Erin and sign yearbooks. 6th period got to just sit and say nothing to Eric and Eunice lol
High school…it’s been a bitter sweet experience. Lots of ups and downs in terms of relationships, academics, mood swings, appearance, and I can’t say that the good necessarily outweighs the bad. Lots of disappointment but also lots of triumphs in overcoming the obstacles that came my way.
Really thankful for the amazing teachers that I’ve had, although I kinda wish I was as memorable to them as they will be to me. Thanks to everyone who’s been there for me, who have seen good in me despite all my faults, and have become my friends even if we’ve fallen apart. I hope all of you become successful one day, one way or another, and can be happy with the time and effort that you’ve put into coming this far, even if it’s been a freaking stressful 4 years.
Guys, we’re graduating. Let’s make our mark on the world.
Driving my own car. Knowing where everything and everybody is pretty much every second of the day. Easy access to boba. Certain people that I’ll miss a whole bunch and I don’t know what I’ll do without being able to talk to them face to face.
That’s probably it.
Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be a lovey dovey super positive and grateful post
Don’t give up. Persevere- you have the ability, but all you have to do is get into the mentality and don’t let yourself slide.
It’s okay. Grades, friends, relationships- if your best isn’t enough or if you make a mistake, the world isn’t over. Learn to forgive and move on, but never forget.
You’re human. Being human, with human vices and human needs is ok.
Be there for your sister. Going off to college, that’s probably the biggest thing I want to change. I only started paying attention to her the end of senior year, and I think we could’ve had such a stronger and such a better relationship if I was there for her more often.
LOL uh probably going to KBBQ/Half&Half/Vantage Point with the 4th period family :]
OMG. I wasted so much of my life just driving back and forth to school and to my extracurricular activities and just everything. It’s going to be SO nice having everything on campus. SO nice.
OMG this list could probably go on forever
Hmmm…I knew quite a few upperclassmen in my opinion.
Swimming pool. Hands down.
The pool deck is like a sacred place. When you’re within the gates surround the pool and the bleachers, it doesn’t matter what you look like, how fat you are, whether you’re smart or dumb, whether you’re fast or slow. All that matters is that you’re part of a team. I don’t have to feel subconscious about anything when I’m in that area- in terms of body, we’ve seen pretty much everything that we need to see of each other that there’s really nothing to be self-conscious about LOL And nobody’s competing for grades in swim, there’s no brutal fight to the death to be at the top of the class. We race against each other, but in doing so, we’re pushing each other to do our best. We cheer our heads off, share stories, give advice, and just have fun. There really isn’t anywhere else on campus that I feel so at home and content with who I am. Love swim :]]
Before, I would have said the “incident” that I had sophomore year, but now I think it’s putting “bioengineering” as my major on my college apps…
I’ve had several different summer experiences over the past four years. While I guess my trip to China was very memorable, my actual internship was a very minor part of it. But it was a really big experience for me in terms of familial relationships and getting in touch with my Chinese side lol Got to get close to the family that I hadn’t seen in over 7 years and was able to finally live basically on my own, exploring the city, going wherever I wanted whenever I wanted to, and become a local. It was my first taste of freedom, and after coming back, I never could return to my sedentary lifestyle again.
Ria M. is the friend that I’ve known the longest (since preschool) but since we went to different high schools, while we did contact each other once in a while, we didn’t get to stay that close.
Angela Z. is probably the one that I’ve known the longest and I’ve still maintained a really close relationship with. Met each other in 4th grade when I changed elementary schools and hit off due to our same last names. She’s seen me in my darkest, moodiest times to my craziest, silliest days. Sissies foreva <3
