Senior Year My greatest memory so far in my eighteen years of being on this earth is without a doubt my senior year of high school. It was absolutely unforgettable. My senior year as a whole (which was just last year) was the most fun I’ve ever had in my life and the happiest I have ever been.

But man was I wrong, high school went by in the blink of an eye. My first three years flew by and I was hoping that I would enjoy my final year.

Our chaplain did a great job in leading the prayer service and it was just a great mass. The next day was graduation, graduation was very haunting. In the beginning of high school, I could not wait to graduate but as it became less of a big thing in the future and more of a realistic thing that was coming very quickly I did not want to graduate at all. It all hit me that day, it was over. The people that I spent the four best years of my life with would all be going their separate ways. Graduation was very surreal because it was the last time that we all got together as a class. It was a very accomplishing day in my life and I was very proud of the person I became, but it was also sad because it was the end of an era. Senior year had finally come to a close.

It was all over and it was just one big memory. Senior year was great and I learned a lot about myself and about others. Senior year taught me not to rush life because one day I’m going to look back and realize that I should’ve enjoyed every day rather than being miserable. It was Ekbom 4 just a great time and I was very sad when it ended. But now I am excited for the next chapter

Due to my last name, I was the first one to walk, and to receive my diploma. Both of these events are very blurry memories to me, because they were over so quickly. Walking at graduation felt so surreal, it was over before I could even really process what it meant.…

    I thank God for putting me in several classes my senior year with them. If it was not for Him, I would not have formed these lasting relationships. I started out the year being friends with individuals that I thought would always be there for me, and it ended up that they were not when the going got tough. It was really hard at the beginning of the year losing close friends, whom I have known all throughout high school, but…

    My first semester at Troy University taught me just as many lessons as I learned in all of my years as a high school student from working hard, investing in yourself, and truly cherishing these upcoming years at Troy University.

Though the events were not the best, I learned to cherish them because it taught me a lesson that I refused to repeat.…
