Journal Writing Project Thinking of spring

Baseball fans are wondering what’s happening in spring training, football fans are wondering who’ll be drafted in which round, and golfers are wondering when they’ll be able to get out on the course again. As a high school senior, I’m also wondering what’s going to happen this spring.

The first thing I’m wondering about is softball. I can’t wait for the season to be underway. To me there’s nothing better than playing a sport that’s outside in the sun and fresh air after being in a gym all winter. I suppose baseball fits in with this, too. I try to follow the Twins and, of course, my school team.

The second thing spring has me wondering about is my class trip to Washington, D.C. in April. As soon as Mr. Zimmer finished handing out the itinerary, I was ready to be on that bus and head east. I can’t wait to see all of the historical monuments of our amazing country and spend ten days with my classmates before we graduate and part ways.

Of course, for most high school students, spring has us wondering when school will finally be out for the summer. Usually I’m one to start counting down the days in, oh, February, but this year is different. As my senior year at Mabel-Canton enters the spring, I’m starting to wonder what’s next. Of course, I’ll miss my classmates and friends at school and even the school itself after spending so much of my life there, but thinking of all that lies ahead after graduation makes any of the sad feelings go away. Although this new chapter of my life won’t really start until the fall, I feel like spring is ushering in the excitement already.

So what do I do now that spring has almost sprung? I guess all I can do is wait. Wait for softball to start, wait for the Senior Class Trip, and wait-probably very impatiently-for graduation.
