Journal writing project: The Fillmore Central Life

I’m a senior at Fillmore Central High School. I’ve lived my whole life in the towns of Preston and Harmony. There is nothing I love more than my school. With that being said this is one of the more exciting fall seasons for me in my high school career with the football team winning a playoff game and the volleyball team going to state. I’m very proud of all the people in my class and underclassmen.

Looking forward to college is a strange experience to me. It’s odd to think that this time next year I won’t be in the halls of Fillmore Central every morning. It certainly is exciting to think about moving onto the next stage of my life and move towards being an independent person. However, it’s extremely scary thinking about how much responsibility I will have in my life in the next few years. I’ve never had that much responsibility in my life and now I will have to do everything for myself.

When I was an underclassmen I thought I had all the time in the world. I had four years. Four years was an eternity back then. I never believed that time would go by so fast and school would change so much. We now have computers in our hands all the time and there’s little seventh and eighth graders everywhere. These aren’t necessarily bad things though. I love having technology in my hands at all times. The advantages of using computers are so vast that it’s crazy. I also actually like having the seventh and eighth graders at the high school. They make the school feel like it’s actually full and they don’t make me as mad as they used to. These last four years have been so much fun. I’ve been to state in One-Act and Knowledge Bowl. I still have those two activities coming up for my senior year and I plan on going to state in at least one of them.

I’m excited for the rest of my senior year at Fillmore Central and I look forward to finishing out the rest of my school career strong. I also look forward to a few last good times with my classmates and the underclassmen. So I hope to have one last good year of the Fillmore Central life.
