Journal Writing Project: The end

As the school year comes to a close, the hustle and bustle of every school day seems to remain constant. Even though the seniors at Fillmore Central had their last day on Wednesday the 21, and graduated on Sunday the 25, it seems as though hardly any classes are affected by it. Especially band and choir. I know I’ve been talking a lot about the trip to Florida, but it’s difficult to forget when we are reminded every day that the time is almost here. As for the other classes, we are being handed test after test, assignment after assignment, even a final in calculus. With everything that’s going on, it’s almost as though June 6 will never arrive.

It’s difficult to believe that my class only has a year until we leave for bigger things. It really does feel like we were playing football at recess and coloring in English not that long ago. It just doesn’t seem right, like there has to be some mistake, we’re not that old yet. Starting June 6, we’re the big dogs again, we will be seniors. I know the next week will go by fast, but it still seems that the end of the year is out of reach, which is bittersweet because we want summer, but we also want to stay young forever.

At this rate, however, we will never grow up, mentally that is. Everyone is ready for summer, especially the boys in my grade. Our focus in class is limited as well as our focus on homework and basically any other school related thing. This could also be partially due to the fact that the school is a million degrees most of the time and the cooling system is a little wonky. I will not dare complain, though, after the winter we had. I’d take a million above over a million below any day at this point. Anyway, I’m sure all of the lack of focus is just because we are all well aware that school is almost over. Hopefully we are all able to stay with it just a little bit longer, just long enough to finish each test, assignment, project, final, or whatever else we have to do. Before we know it, we’ll be starting a whole new school year again, maybe next year will be even better than this one.

Personally speaking, this year was a major learning experience. This year, we all learned how to accept failure and try that much harder next time. We’ve learned that sometimes old friendships just can’t survive some adversities, but new ones can form around them. We’ve even learned that sometimes you can’t do things by yourself, it’s impossibl .....
