Today I Experienced... My Last Day of School

Today, Friday June 7, was my last day of school. It felt weird. I went through so many emotions today. I was so excited to not have to wake up at 6 in the morning to go to school. I was excited that I could play Super Mario Smash Ultimate on all of my friends' Nintendo Switches the entire day. I was excited to go hang out with my friends after school. But as I left my classes for the last time, there was this feeling in my stomach that was unpleasant; it was sadness. I was sad to see all of my favorite teachers for the last time and realize that holy sh*t. I'm a senior now. I am the oldest on campus, but yet I feel like a 6th grader who just came to SOCES for the first time.

I feel like I haven't changed too much in the last 5 years, but now I'm just one year away from graduating and crying on stage when I receive my diploma. All of these emotions mixed together made me not able to really understand how I feel. What I do understand is that I am thankful that I have a great support team around me that pushes me to dream bigger. Now, it is time for me to focus on my college applications and make sure I will do my best to succeed in not just college, but life as a whole. #30under30
