“Don’t worry, your senior year is the easiest of the four” my brother insisted. “You can skip as many classes as you want, it’s like the teachers don’t even care”, Jordan said. “It’s like your grades from senior year don’t even count”, my older cousin reminded me. Going into senior year, I had so many expectations of the perfect last year of high school, based on what I was told from previous seniors. Turns out, half of what I was told was not true.
