They say all good things come to a end, high school is no different. Although I don't consider high school the best four years of my life (and don't want them to be). I am sad that I will be leaving my childhood behind and also happy for the new world that is ahead of me. I'm guessing that senior year is going to be a great, memorable change between these two phases of my life. I hope it is nothing short of the best year in my life so far.
1. Early Dismissal
Seniors at my school get the benefit of leaving school early as 12:30. This opens several opportunities for jobs and volunteer work for me. Maybe even a nap break.
2. Powder-puff Game
Every year, upperclassman at my school come together to raise money for breast cancer in October through a powder-puff game. None of us really know how to play football or what we are doing, but it is a great way to get together, have fun, and raise money for a good cause.
3. Applying to college
For me, the biggest thing about my senior year is going to be applying to colleges. That is when it will really set in that high school is almost over. I finally get to decide what I am doing with my life and where I will be devoting the next four years of my life to. There is underlying rewards in that.
4. Senior Brunch
Right before graduation, my school organizes a brunch for all the seniors. I heard the food isn't super good, but the place has great picture spots.
5. School dances
School dances will probably be my favorite memory from high school. Not only is it an event where the whole school can have fun together, but it is so fun to put on a gown and get your hair and makeup done.
6. Senior Road Trip
Every year, numerous parents set up the school in different themes that represent various places in the world. But that is all I really know about it. Seniors have to keep what happens at the event a secret for the future grades. I'm exited to experience it.
7. Getting accepted into college/ Committing
Getting accepted into my dream college will be one of the happiest days of my high school experience. There will be a tangible thing that represents all my hard work throughout the past decade. Also I'll finally get a glimpse into the next phase of my life.
8. Senior night for Lacrosse
I play lacrosse at my school, and although I don't consider myself the most valuable player, I am exited to be celebrated with my other teammates on senior night. It will be sad to step on the field for the last time though.
The past four years will all be to get my diploma and throw my cap in the air. Just like that, it will all be over. Goodbye high school! As always, Go Go Mustangs!
