The End is Near.

I know I haven't posted in a while and I'm really kicking myself over for that. I've been a very busy busy bee. As you may or may not know, I am a senior in high school, and that means I am naturally, very busy and very stressed.

Having said that, I have three days of high school left and it is the craziest most surreal thing that I have ever experienced (well besides concerts). I have "senior week" next week which is the time when all the seniors say their final farewell to all the other classes and friends, Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors.

It is definitely bittersweet. I remember walking in as a freshman and being completely and utterly terrified. I looked at the school map that was on my desk and I found all the classrooms I would be having class in, checking which hallways I could use to get their fast from where I was currently or where I would be.

Just now I'm thinking about all these events over the last four years that seem like they happened only yesterday, and I feel nostalgic and sad but happy and excited because my high school experience was one I never would have imagined. I never thought that I would be this happy in a school, I used to think middle school was the best "Aww yeah look at me I'm such a high and mighty awesome eighth grader, fearrrr my furryyyyyyy!!!" I mean, sure, eighth grade was a great year that I did enjoy and I did have awesome friends with me through it, but it has absolutely nothing on my last four years in high school.

I graduate next Saturday (as in a week from this coming Saturday). And then I have my college orientation on the Thursday and Friday after that. Strange. Exciting. New. Terrifying.

I am sad to be leaving this part of my life behind me, another chapter is coming to it's close but I am so utterly excited to see what else there is, what is coming and what am I going to experience what will change and what won't?

You know they say life is a box of chocolates? You never know what you'll get? Yes, I definitely agree with that, but I also think life is like a chapter book and you are the author. You know, you can write this and that but you might end up changing it later, you never know what you'll come up with and where it might lead you. So many chapters to fill, so much time to live and experience. Work hard, don't take anything for granted, and make your book AMAZING. 

btw - sorry for that cliche ending, I know I know.

Enjoy the rest of your school year and be happy! -J
