Getting ready to graduate


(Yes, i know my bangs look horrible in this picture. They have been cut since then)

Wow. I am officially done with highschool. Yesterday was my last day. I just feel like I'm on a break from school. Yes, I was counting down all year, but the month of May felt like 1 week. A little too fast.

One of the lovely things about our school (there are few) is seniors don't have to take their May finals if they're getting an A in the class. And now we've just been watching movies in every class. So I basically didn't do too much at school after prom. It was very nice for my senioritis. I saw Avatar way too many times though. I hate it now.

I also got to see Robin Hood this weekend. I absolutely loved it! I recommend it. And now I'm really excited to go see Iron Man 2.

I'm the last couple to walk for graduation. And I'm happy who I'm walking with. I get to be recognized on stage for being an honor student, and the senior chorus girls are singing a song during graduation.

It has been a rocky year, but even the bad stuff influenced me for good. The night before the last day of school, I said a prayer dedicating my senior year to the Lord. To be a better missionary, really study my scriptures, and to be an example to other people. I don't think I've been very successful at all, but I do feel like a new person. I feel like I've matured a lot. Which isn't a very mature thing to say, and Tashi and Noah have both made a comment today about how immature they think I am...but still. I have a long ways to go, but I feel a lot more confident about going to college now.

And everything that I didn't have an opportunity to do during my sophomore or junior year, I did this year. I pushed and worked hard. But if things didn't work out, I had to give it up to the Lord. I am still very proud of myself.

Things I won't miss about high school:
  1. school lunch
  2. P.E.
  3. rednecks talking bad about Mormons and black people
  4. drama
  5. all the rules
  6. favoritism of certain students

Things I will miss:

  1. my friends
  2. teachers
  3. learning about music and history

everyone says I'll miss it. I don't think so. I was a little bit sad, but it's over now! Now for my graduation party tomorrow and everyone else's parties to go to and GRADUATION on Sunday!!! HOORAY!
