I contemplate this in the darkness of my blanket fort quite often. Planning out your future can be frustrating, and as troubling and crucial as this task is, do your best to forget about it for a second and think about something much more important: how far you and your fellow classmates have come.
Not so long ago, we were all a bunch of greasy kids with disproportionate bodies. But during the brutal voice cracks, changing bodies and awkward growth spurts, a bond was created between some special people. Not to mention, we’re all starting to look pretty attractive now.
We’ve been granted a gorgeous earth that has played host to the parties and gatherings we’ve been able to experience with these special people. But those times will soon become memories and that’s why I urge you to make many more of those memories before the year ends.
I’ll be graduating from a small school and small class – only about 70 kids. I’ve had the opportunity to create very close bonds with many of my classmates. There is so much value in the times where everyone can enjoy the prospect of bonding not just as classmates, but also as genuine friends. You might attend a school that has a palpable amount of cliques, but always find the merit in the awesomeness of grad-oriented events.
Twelfth grade proves itself to be another medium to evolve your analytical decision-making. We’re given the task of constantly balancing our lives so we can happily move on from high school. I challenge you to create and involve yourself in experiences that you can take positive things away from. Theme the last few months of the year around the embracement of what will be some of the finest days of your youth.Login or register to post comments.
