Once you start holding onto something, it’s hard to let go. Well in the case, it’s high school. Now let me be clear here. I won’t miss the work, that’s for sure. I won’t miss the fights. I won’t miss some of the teachers. I won’t even miss a lot of the people there. Because, quite frankly most of the people in high school are just awful to the core. it’s rather sad actually. But I will miss a couple of things. I will miss some of the people that I’ve spent basically my whole school career with. I’ll miss the teachers. The ones that helped me even when it seemed like I was hopeless. I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me. I hate to admit it, I really do, but I will miss high school. Certainly not everything about it, but I will miss it. I’ll miss the sound of Mr. Vincent announcing the football games. I’ll miss the bright lights that shined down on Elmer Engel Stadium. I’ll miss the band playing during halftime. But most of all, I’ll miss seeing my girlfriend who I have grown so close to this school year. Sure we have our fights now and then but I mean all couples do. I met her at the most depressing time in my life and she to this day, is the reason that I am out of the deep hole of depression. I can’t thank her enough as well as all of the other wonderful people I’ve met at Central high school. Four years really does fly by fast. I guess Ferris was right. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it.” I don’t know what’s in store for me once this school year ends. I don’t think I want to know. I’m ready for this journey. I’m ready for wherever life takes me. But for now, I think I’m just going to enjoy these last few weeks of my high school career. I’ll let you know if I make it out alive.
