Feburary 12, 2014 My Graduation Day suddenly, I realized it was my last day in high school with mixed emotion and uncertain expression. Sad to leave the school which has imparted so much into me for the last 4 years. Then I sat there with a blooming joyous smile on my fave as I thought of finally being able to leave this boring repetitive life. But overall I was proud of myself finally being able to finish and complete this huddle was a great achievement and a stepping stone in my life.
12 long years of arguing with teachers over answers to unknown questions then feeling stupid after the answer was wrong, 12 years of of being frustrated. 12 years of unknowingly stepping into frequently territory.

In the ceremony in front of all the teachers, younger students and parents we received our certificates. A ceremony we have watched for the past 4 years, we have sat through and watched as students cried hugged and thought it would never be like that. Then as you stand up an see faces of people that you have made memories with and watched as they grew up with you. After all you’ve gone through with each other, you begin to realize that you’re all in this together, despite your differences. Flashes of stories blast through your mind; funny anecdotes about stupid things that you’ve done together; tales about pulling together as one when things seem too tough. Then when you realize how much you'll miss them. There’s no word to describe it.

After the graduation I and my friend decided to go to an Asian restaurant somewhere in chain town. We were about twenty and we decided to have a little section to ourselves. How ever, there was also another party right beside us. At the restaurant there a were beautiful colorful array of lightening that decorated the entire room. We played a lot of drinking games and one of my friends got intoxicated and began acting up and shouting out funny things. Well I remembered telling myself how

    With all the revelations I experienced in those moments of deep thought I became completely overwhelmed with many different emotions. I experienced excitement about the fact that I am almost finished with high school, but I also experienced fear and anxiety about many of the aspects of being a senior. Soon I would have to start filling out college applications and focusing more on the future than on the present moment. I was also very terrified because I knew that soon people would start asking questions about where I want to go to college and what I want to do with my life. These are the kinds of questions I cannot answer yet. The last emotion I experienced was sadness because this year would be the last I would spend living in the same house as my parents or getting to spend a lot of time with my family.…

    I am the one in the picture with the sloppy bun in my hair and the bright red cheeks. The one who can't stop smiling. With all my friends surrounding me, it was one of the best days of my life. All fifteen of us look happy; it was a night for many smiles. Everyone is crowded around the table. There are a lot of red cheeks in the picture; the room was as hot as a sauna. There was a strong smell of barbeque sauce in the air as well. The picture was taken right after dinner. The table we are crowded around is messy. There are a lot of cups on the table and bottles of ketchup and barbeque sauce, with dirty, green napkins piled up. The restaurant was as noisy as the circus when the clowns perform. There were a lot of pictures taken that night, but out of all the pictures, this is the best one taken of everyone. Crouched down in front is Brent Dana. He has a grin on his face more than a smile. Brent hates pictures, and he doesn't smile in any of them; he is wearing his red "Rag Tails" shirt that he always wears. Next to Brent is Jade Walker. She has her hair back and is wearing her red "North Face" jacket. Jade has an adorable smile on her face. Next to Jade is Mary Attaway leaning over the table wearing a flowered backless shirt with a black sweater. To the right of Mary is Laura Jones. Laura is slightly leaning her head toward her right shoulder and is wearing a blue shirt with a drawstring tie in front. Laura has her arm around Erica Farnsworth, who has a yellow shirt and white jacket on. She looks especially happy; she is smiling from ear to ear. Starting in the left hand comer (in row two) are Chad Phillips and Caitlin Pollock standing together. Chad has his arms around Caitlin's waist. He has this cute little grin, and Caitlin has a huge smile and rosy red cheeks. Brittany Wilkins is next to Caitlin with a puzzled look on her face, the face you would see in a hard Algebra II exam when you don't think you even learned what the question is asking. To the top right of…
