Graduation is getting closerTuesday, June 01, 2010 By Kaylin Dominguez
Life is like a book, there are many ups and downs, struggles, hardships and memories. The big question is, “where does this chapter end and where will the new one begin?” As most people know, graduation is a pretty big thing in life, not only graduating from pre-school, first grade, or eighth grade, but high school would definitely fall under most important. Most people will tell you your high school years will be “the time of your life,” but how true is that? Others might also tell you that the end of high school is “just the beginning.” I believe both things are true in a way. There are those people who have the best times during high school and others who have just an “alright time.” As for me, I think graduation is going to be the end of one chapter, but yet a beginning to another on life. Not only will graduation be exciting, but scary. The thrill of being a senior is pretty exciting and ties into graduating. There are senior ditch days; Senior Week and a bunch of other things going on that you don’t have time to think. It all flies by so fast that when it comes down to June 4 everything hits you in the face. At least that’s my view on things. Graduation will be a pretty big deal for everyone with the getting ready, waiting to get your diploma and then walking off stage and saying “I did it” quietly to yourself as you walk back to your seat. Even though graduation is the end of a chapter or book of your life it goes along with all the memories that high school has given students such as going to rallies, Prom, noontime activities and being able to finally run the school as a senior. Many students have their lives planned and know exactly what they want to do, but for all the rest they might not know what they want or even what their next step will be. That’s where I think graduation might be a little bit scary. Not having something to do or even a reason to wake up in the morning, not seeing friends every day or even teachers. Life is full of surprises. Even though most graduates are considered “adults,” we’re all still kids at heart trying to get by in the big world that we call “life.” There are still going to be ups and downs, good and bad moments, even great ones, but life is still life and everyone has to live it no matter if they hate it or love it. The real question is how are you going to start off the new chapter and make it last?
