“Almost” ready for a lot of things

Ahhhhhh! Graduation is here. It’s the last time the class of 2016 will eat in the cafeteria and walk the hallways and have sports practice and games...but for the juniors, this year of lasts is only beginning. This isn’t your average graduation essay, reminiscing about all the final moments with classmates, because as a junior myself, I have a whole year to experience these. So instead of talking about life after high school, I’m going to talk about life right now, in the moment, filled with choices and pressures.

First of all, I would like to congratulate my fellow juniors on making it through this year. Junior year courses are really tough. Chemistry, pre-calculus, and a college class entirely about plants consumed a quickly-passing junior year for me. As junior year is ending, we are now constantly bombarded to answer specific questions about our future, regarding college and careers, by caring community members who want to support the Youth (and Future) of America. Honestly, I don’t know what I want to do for the rest of my life or even after high school, and – believe me – yes, I am stressed about it! There is a lot of pressure placed on students at this stage in high school to participate in the “right” activities and classes to best prepare for our future, but this is much easier said than done. Where do I go from here? In just one year I will be preparing to leave home and find a job or go to college, but I have no idea what the specifics will consist of. These choices are up to me; I have control of my future, whether I am ready for it or not. As a junior, I have one year to make these choices while also trying to live my life and enjoy the time I have to be young and not worry about where I will end up.

I’m almost a senior. I’m almost starting my last year of high school. I’m almost ready to go to college and leave home. But almost doesn’t mean I’m there yet. For a long time, all I wanted was to be done with this stage of my life; I wanted to be with those seniors as they moved out and went to college. After finally being faced with the decisions that will create my future, I don’t want it to go any faster than it’s already going. I am now faced with decisions that cause me to grow up faster and be prepared for when I no longer live securely with my family. I am glad I am just finishing my junior year. I am glad I have another year to laugh in the halls wh .....
