I start my senior year this August, and I am pretty prepared for it. I've been
making some big life changes around my senior year.
I had the opportunity to graduate this December. A semester early. For months, I was
fully prepared to accept it, as this would mean I could attend a Community College in
January for free using my A+ scholarship. I was going to move in with my older
brother, who lives five hours away from my current home with my parents. I was going
to start college, get a part-time job, and start life.
This past week, I've been at said brothers apartment. Away from my friends, and my
little brother, who is only five years old. I realized, that I wasn't ready to be
leaving. I wanted more time with my friends. I wanted to walk with all of them at my
Graduation in May. Spend one last summer with them. I want more time with my five
year old brother. The little boy that changed my life so much.
I'm nervous for Senior year, because it's the beginning of the end. But, I am also
excited, because despite not leaving as early as I originally planned, it means my
life. Real life, is starting soon.
