Journal Writing Project: Five years from now

Imagine your life five years from now and then think back to five years ago. If you were asked the same question five years ago, would you have thought your life would be like this today?

For myself and the rest of the seniors, we probably had a good image of what this year would be like. We’d start of the year in the humid August weather preparing for another season of football and volleyball. Others would be finishing the last weeks of their summer jobs.

Relatives, friends, and alumni would come home for a town celebration. The last days of summer would come to an end. The high school would gather in the gymnasium for a welcome back pep-fest. The way our year always begins. The preparation for homecoming has already began! Before you know it, we’re using the last of our toilet paper on the teacher and boys’ houses. Christmas break comes and goes. The senior trip is the one thing on our mind now that basketball and wrestling have ended. The trip of a life time that we’ve been waiting for years. All the years of class dues and fundraising would soon pay off. When we get back from our trip, we will share stories with our family and friends at home. Graduation is the last big event to round the year off.

We may have imagined the year to go just like that. We knew what we had to look forward to and plan for, but I would never imagine it would go this fast. These last year’s flew by and when people tell you, senior year goes by even faster, they aren’t lying.

If we take a look at the next five years, we have no idea what to expect. Most will probably be getting done with college and looking for a job in the degree they majored in. Some might even have a family or be starting one. We’ll also be planning our five year class reunion. Wondering who will show up and who won’t be able to make it.

In five years, we could be anywhere. We’ll meet new people and travel to new places while trying to keep in contact with our friends from high school. As we wrapping up the last weeks of school, we’re all thinking that this is probably the last time we’ll all be together. It’s crazy to think that these next five years you might not ever see or hear from one of you fellow classmates for the rest of your life. Many people say, high school will be some of the best years and easiest years of your life, so enjoy each and every minute of it as you can. Try new things, go out for as many ac .....
