The 2019-2020 school year will be my last in this school district. After almost thirteen years of education, Washington has shaped me into the person I am today. Leaving something so familiar brings about many fears for me, but also abundant hopes for the future.
It always seems that what we hope for the most is something we are also afraid of. As I enter college application time, I have many hopes for myself. I want to get into a good school, obtain great scholarships, and feel accomplished for giving my applications my all.
I also hope to participate in as many school-related activities as possible because my first three years of high school I did not. I regret those decisions now. This is my time to fix it!
What I hope for most, though, is that when I reflect back on my high school experience as a whole I can be content and happy with it.
One of my greatest fears though is not accomplishing my goals, but I am also afraid of all the things that come along with high school ending like buying a cap and gown and saying goodbye to friends and teachers. To combat my fears, I want to make sure I put full effort into everything I do this year to have no regrets. I plan on going the extra mile to have a conversation with someone or going to a sports game. By doing those little things, I know my senior year will be great.
I hope to make the best out of my fears. I want to overcome them and to make my last year of high school memorable and fun!
Until next time,
