So, I graduate soon…
My last day of high school is May 14th. I graduate May 23rd from the high school I’ve been at for four long, sometimes painful, years.
This is exciting for me. It means I’ll have from the end of high school, and three months after it, to enjoy being able to choose what I want to do. This includes gaming with friends, writing, and preparing for college in the fall.
This is also scary. It means this August I move into a dorm with mainly people I don’t know away from my parents. I’ll start taking classes without the same supervision I’ve had all these years. Grades won’t come as easy to me as they have in high school and before that. I’ll have to get through certain things on my own because I won’t be right at home all the time.
Even though there are two sides to the ending of high school, it is happening. Everyone goes through the transition from the structure of high school to something after it. Whether that’s college, military, or straight into a job, it is a difficult transition. Most people, like me, are especially excited in the months leading up to the official change.
Although I have fears about this change, I’m prepared for this. I’ll be the first between my parents and siblings to go away to college. Even though it will only be 30 minutes away from my family’s home, it will be a big change. Change isn’t something I’m good at dealing with; I like structure, but life doesn’t always work that way, does it?
Just to let you guys know, after high school is over, posts will resume every week/every other week. I’m not sure which of those it will be, but it depends on whether or not I get a job over the summer or volunteer for the shelter again.
I will put up a blog post, probably on the 24th, about my concrete plans. This gives me a couple weeks to think them through.
Thank you for reading this, and other posts, and I hope to see more followers and views throughout the year. Happy Blogging.
To end this blog post, as well as, future ones, I’m going to leave with a question. When you graduated from high school, if you have, what did you feel like? Were you nervous, scared, excited or happy? Let me know.
