I graduated! (Finally)

It’s graduation, guys! After thirteen years of school, I’m done. Just like that! It’s so weird that I’ve met this milestone in my life. Remember when it seemed so far away? That time went by so fast.

I’m not sure exactly how I feel. It’s surreal, maybe, because after so many years of striving for good grades, studying, writing (long) English papers, and completing assignments, it’s done today.

I was visiting with one of my teachers a couple days ago, and I told her I do not find personal fulfillment in getting good grades anymore. It’s changed so much since I was fifteen. School used to be what I lived and breathed.

It doesn’t matter as much. In the real world, no one cares if you got straight As in high school, if you were the quarterback on the football team, if you won three state championships in volleyball, etc. It doesn’t matter.

Sure, those accomplishments are good for personal growth and help boost our fragile teenage self-esteem.

But high school is just four years out of your life. Those four years do not define who we are. We’re just beginning our adult life!

So I hope each person looks back on high school with fond memories, and enjoyed that (mostly) carefree time.

Because watch out! Adult life is about to throw some hefty responsibilities in your face 🙂

Just kidding (kinda)!
