Hi guys! So I’ve been kind of neglecting this blog for awhile and I’m sorry but things have just been so hectic with school and college admissions that I haven’t had the time or the motivation to write anything. But, with the school year almost over, I have a little more time on my hands and I wanted to talk about something that’s been on my mind for awhile.
Saying goodbye is never easy, but it’s inevitable in life. Whether it’s saying goodbye to your favorite shirt, to a classmate moving away, or to a loved one who has passed away. I’ve been thinking a lot about goodbye’s lately myself. Since I’m graduating high school this year, it seems surreal to me that I’ll be saying goodbye to more than half of my classmates this year. Granted, I’m not friends with all of them, but it’ll be weird going to school and not being surrounded by the faces I’ve come to be familiar with over the past twelve years.
These past few weeks, I’ve been reminiscing over memories created with the people I’ve gone to school with my whole life, and wondering how different it’ll be next year, when more than half of my classmates will be spread not only up and down California, but across the country. It made me sit and think of all the times I’ve laughed and shared inside jokes with my classmates, and how I took those moments for granted.
But with goodbye’s also comes the prospect of future memories. My best friend and I are attending community college for our first two years of college, in order to save money and finish out our GE’s. I’ll be able to spend more time with my friends from other high school’s that I rarely get to see and I’ll have the chance to visit all the foodie spots in LA that I’ve been dying to try. I have plans to hopefully study abroad and maybe get an internship at a law firm or online newspaper? I don’t have a complete plan at this point, but I’m so excited for what the future has in store for me.
