My Last Week Of High School

My last year of high school has been absolutely crazy and hectic. I have made memories that will last me my entire life. I have attended events I normally would not, and I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone. Through my last week of high school, I have had mixed feelings. On one hand, I am completely done with high school, and I'm excited for it to be over. On the other hand, I am anxious about what is coming, and I am not sure I am ready for it. With all of the events taking place during my last week, I have made some good memories with some good friends.

On Tuesday, the first day of my school week, I celebrated my eighteenth birthday. With all of my teachers and classmates wishing me a happy birthday, I was reminded of how for my next birthday, I would not be around any of them. I will be off in a town 126 miles from my home. All of my closest friends will be scattered all over the state of Oklahoma. When I went out with my parents later that night, I was reminded that for my next birthday, I will not be able to celebrate with them on the exact date. I will have to wait until after my finals are done and travel back home to spend time with them.

Wednesday was the day of our senior trip. I was not really looking forward to it because I do not like most of my senior class, and spending an entire day with them was not my cup of tea. I decided to go, though, because I wanted to have a fun time with my friends. I ended up having a great time, and it was a good chance to hang out with my friends for one of the last times altogether. I ended up pushing myself and rode a roller-coaster for the first time ever. To say it was exhilarating would be an understatement. The memories made will be ones I cherish for years to come.

On Thursday, my class had our "Senior Skip Day". Some students couldn't take part because of absences, but my little friend group had a good time. We went to our local recreation center and swam in the indoor pool. It was a nice day to just relax and have fun together. After we were done swimming for a couple of hours, we decided to go to Whataburger for lunch. We laughed over dumb jokes, cried tears of joy from these dumb jokes, and overall just had a good time together.

My last day of high school was actually not as emotional as I thought it would be. After leaving each class, I would hug my teacher and tell them how much they meant to me. As the day went on, I enjoyed my last few laughs with my friends and said goodbye to the teachers I had grown up with the last four years. Although I know I will be on the campus again this week for senior checkout day and our senior assembly, last week was the last time I would be on campus like I had been the last years.

As I went through my last year of high school, it was crazy and hectic, but I definitely had a good time. Even though last week was my last week of high school, I will still have some great memories to take with me as I transition to college. Never take your high school years for granted, even if they aren't the best.
