I just starting to adjust to my life after a year of change. I'm finally getting stable, finally getting used to everything, and all of sudden: GRADUATION. COLLEGE ORIENTATION. Sure, it's exciting. Sure, it's something to look foreward to, but I can't help but wonder what I'm leaving behind:
- I'm leaving behind my friends, all of the ones I've grown up with, and the ones that I met a few years back. I'm leaving behind a girl with curly hair with freckles who I call my best friend, my little sissy. I'm leaving behind a girl with long brown hair, and olive skin. I'm leaving behind a girl with highlights in her hair and a passion for dance. I'm leaving behind a blond haired best friend, who never fails to make me laugh when I'm down. I'm leaving behind an adopted girl with long hair, and a smile on her face everyday. I'm leaving behind a girl who had long hair, and speaks Spanish. I'm leaving behind a kid with a green back pack, an ear to listen to my probelms, and always has facts in tote.
- I'm leaving behind my years of being a kid. I'm going to be 18. No child support. No getting a discount at iHop for being a kid. I have to pay for myself, and worry about tution and bills at the end of the month. I'm on my own now, and it's kinda scary.
- I'm leaving behind the teachers who inspired me to grow. Aranci, Lidzbarski, Feldman, Stamidis (whose class I'm in right now, and supposed to be working on an essay for), Easton, Coladarci, Balanda, Barkon, Davidson, Forcucci, Leone, and Mr. C, you all are a huge part of my success on my path of academics, and thanks to y'all, I'm at college. Or going to be, but whatever.
Here's to new beginnings.
