Hi hey hello,
The past few weeks I have spent feverishly addressing graduation announcements, filling out forms, and generally preparing for graduation and college. I know I have said this probably four hundred times, and I will probably say it another hundred in the next few weeks, but graduation is right around the corner. College is coming rapidly. I will no longer be a high school student in less than a month. WOAH! That does not even seem possible.
Yesterday Brian and I were looking through each of our time lines of Facebook, all the way back in 7th and 8th grade. It it so funny how that seems like just yesterday, but also a millennium ago. It feels like just yesterday we were sitting in the library receiving our Macbooks for school. Back when the hardest thing we had to deal with was AP European History. (not that the class wasn’t super hard, but in the grand scheme of things… seems sort of smallish). Before JREX, before college applications, before Winter Exs, before Leadership Camp, before I Week. Before all those things that seem to have been going on forever. Before The Hunger Games got big. Before One Direction… Before… Justin Bieber. Before iPhones. Before iPods. Before touch screens.
I love thinking back to times when the cartoons were Rugrats, Hey Arnold, Catdog, Rocket Power; when pop music was Backstreet Boys, N’Sync, Destiny’s Child, Aaron Carter. Oh to be back in those times. So much easier.
My last class as a high school student is a week from tomorrow. I apologize that I get a little reminiscent and thoughtful.
Anything you’d like to reminisce on?
