Thinking About The Past And Appreciating The Present

Time goes by so fast, so enjoy every second of it

Thinking About The Past And Appreciating The Present

It's kinda weird to think that I'll be graduating this year and that high school is almost over for me. It goes by ridiculously fast. I feel like it was just a freshman yesterday and now suddenly I'm about to start my second semester of my senior year.

It really hit home today when I had my last marching band practice. Even though it was saddening to think that it's almost over, I used that as more of an inspiration. I decided that I'm going to have fun and enjoy what's left of my senior year.

I also just happened to write a poem for my AP English class about thinking about the past and moving on so I figured I would share it as well. Have a great week everyone :)


Memories of the past

How I wish it wasn’t over

It all went by so fast

I think I need some closure

Old friends fade away

Old memories disappear

Oh how I wish they would stay

That they would be right here

But that’s not how it goes

Time keeps going

This chapter has come to a close

As we all keep growing

But never forget

What made you who you are

You owe them all a debt

For making you into such a star

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious.
