Today it hit me. I’m in my final few weeks of my junior year of high school, and what do I really have to show for it beside the evolution of my outfits and my slightly above average grades and GPA.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed most of high school and have lived nearly every aspirable (yes I know that’s not a word) moment that most high schoolers dream of besides the partying, I’ve never even been invited to a party, never mind gone to one. Like birthday parties yea, but not party parties that people have on Friday nights where they drink and get high. I never really wanted that anyway. But to be invited would be nice.
My high school checklist was/is as follows:
-Get a job and save money (check)
-Get good grades (so far so good)
-Make some new friends (Love you guys)
-Get a boyfriend (Love you Ant)
-Drive (working on it #stayofftheroadsfeb2018)
-Do fun summer stuff (hopefully this summer)
-Go to prom (T minus 7 days)
-Have fun (Thankfully I learned what that was this year)
Those are just some things that I really wanted, or were happy once receiving. They’re just like the typical good kid high school experiences. And that’s all I could really ask for or want.
But now here I am, 3 weeks away from finishing junior year. I took my senior portraits. I’m looking at colleges. I saving money. Like this is all becoming so real, and I don’t think I’m ready.
I’m not ready to go to college. I’m not ready to provide for myself. To have to fix things on my own. Pay bills. Get an adult job. I’m just not ready yet.
I like being in high school because everything is pretty much handed to you. The work is little tough at times, but its manageable. You have a set schedule and parents making sure you go to school on time and do your homework and keep your grades up.
I’m not ready to grow up, and I’m not even graduating yet.
I can’t wait to see what senior year has in store for me.
Happy Thursday guys 🙂
