High School's across the country prepare to walk their seniors across the stage, sending them out into the workforce and/or College. The idea of graduation always seems so abstract to students, it's always so far away. It never really hits us that we are moving on to the next stage of our lives.
But here we are, less than a month away now. How many of us are actually prepared? I don't think I am, despite the fact I have been living on my own ever since Christmas I just don't feel like I am anything other than a Freshman in high school. I wonder how many other people have this feeling?
I can't be alone with the idea that im not prepared for life after High School. I graduate here in three weeks on May 24th, but I stop going to school in two and I have no idea where my life is going. I thought I had a plan but this year it feels like all of my plans fell apart and now im looking forward to life like its a black hole taking me in.

A senior in high school or a senior in college are always thrown the question "What's after graduation?" Some people say more education, some say a job out in the real world, other people just don't know. Sometimes I even find myself wondering what the best thing for me to do is.
I have been an academic person all my life, I throw myself into my work with hopes of becoming better at the skill. The more the day of graduation comes closer, I see that my education career is coming to a close over the next few years. It's scary, I think about what job I want and what I could do with my life. Here I am, a month away from that day and I've never been more excited yet scared in my entire life.
Like most of my graduating class, I'm going to be a college student in the following months. I start my first semester at Tri County Technical College in August and trust me, I feel ready for it but you can never be too sure.
College is a big step for anyone, and to answer that question from before personally, after graduation I am going to college. I know what I want to do and that is honestly a gift.

As a senior, the moments after spring break are often exciting ones. There are only 14 days of school left for the fortunate souls that were able to stay afloat through senioritis and managed to finish out the year with a 90 as their final grade. Maintaining the 90 will not only look impressive on your final senior transcript but will also allow you to exempt exams. Unfortunately for those who didn’t manage to fight off senioritis, there is at least one more day of exams (crying, but hey, it’s only one more exam keeping me back from never stepping foot in the school again!) Either way, there is definitely a sense of excitement in the air as the temperature gets warmer and the days until graduation get shorter.
The point of it all is that there are only a few more days until the environment you’ve grown comfortable with, made memories in, and have known for the past four years completely changes. How are you going to make the most of it?
