Senior Year? Get Outta Here!
I can’t believe it. I’m a freakin’ senior. Other seniors that stumble upon this post, just take a moment and let that sink in. We are freakin’ seniors. This is our last year as grade school kids. Our last year as KIDS…
Ok, lemme stop. This is getting too intense, lol. But seriously, though, it feels so surreal to me. I’ve always imagined seniors as being so much older, and so its so hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that I am one. Like, today in my English class, which is a senior elective, my teacher was like, “You’re all seniors now,” and I was thinking, “Wait, what?"
What made it harder to wrap my mind around this "senior” concept (yes, I did just do quotes) was that today honestly felt like a normal first day of school. I don’t know if anyone else feels the way I do, but after sophomore year, there’s no more hype about first days of high school. Don’t get me wrong, though; today was a good day (even though I had cramps! Who’s tough now?). I got to see my friends and I have at least one in pretty much every class. It just wasn’t as lit as I expected. But no worries, this is the first of many last days to come. I’m so excited for this year!
