Senior Year Narrative

Improved Essays
I’ve been waiting for this year since I walked into Coral Gables Senior High as a freshman. Everyone kept talking about how senior year was the best year anyone can experience in their 4 years in high school and I was finally a senior. Senior year was finally here and I couldn’t wait to go to grad bash, prom and the most exciting part of the whole year, graduation. I knew I was going to enjoy the experience and love every second of it. Senior year was my year to let loose and be stress free. After five months of waiting, I was going to do my first senior activity, grad bash. Grad bash is when the whole senior class goes to the parks in Orlando for three days and to also see Blue Man Group. I couldn’t sleep the night before and I had to wake …show more content…
Prom was more stressful then applying for college but more exciting than me getting my first car. The whole entire month of prom was looking for the perfect dress, which hairdresser would do my hair for that date, what type of shoe matched my dress, etc... Finally, prom came and I couldn’t be more exhilarating. That morning I went to my usual hairdresser and I was set for prom. Her name was Helen. She was the Dominican Republic and she knew how to do nails, wax, makeup, and hair super well. I think Helen was more thrilled about my prom than myself. I took the whole day getting myself ready. I woke up at ten in the morning and I finished everything and got my dress and shoes on an hour before prom started. My mother was in the room while I was putting my dress on, and I hear shuffling, when I turned around it was my mother crying. I asked her what was wrong. She replied,” My baby girl looks so grown. I remembered when I just brought you home from the hospital, you were so tiny and beautiful.” When I heard my mom say that I felt so emotionally. After that emotionally moment with my mother, my stepdad and my mother drove me to my friend Jessie’s house to meet up with her and my other friend, Stephanie. They both looked gorgeous. All three of us went to prom in an Uber Deluxe, which was a huge Cadillac Escalade. We arrived to prom and everything looked picturesque. The decorations and setting looked like it came out from a picture of Havana, …show more content…
That morning of Graduation was hectic. Graduation started at 9 am so I woke up at 6:30 am to take a shower, do my hair and makeup, get dressed, and wake up my mother, stepdad, and my younger brother. After I took a shower, I did my hair and it came out perfect. But when I started doing my makeup, everything when downhill. My face color didn’t match the rest of my body color, my cheek came out too pink, everything was a disaster, my mom came in and helped with my makeup and it came better then expected. At 8:30 am my family and I left the house to the University of Miami Bank United Center, which is where graduation was happening. We got there and I had to go back stage to get in Alphabetical order and my family went to get seats closer to the stage. At 9:45 am, the senior class started walking into the auditorium and got seated in the middle of it. After the superintendent, our school principle, and other important people stop giving their motivational speeches, the senior class started walking across the stage. After 8 rows of people, my row came up. I was the first person to walk up on stage. I was terrified. I was afraid of falling on my face or tripping on my shoes. I did great, I walked perfectly and my school principle handed me my diploma on my hand and said.” Congratulations.” I knew at that exact moment I made my mom, my family, and myself proud. After the ceremony, I met
