Biggest impact from high school
May 9, 2016
I have never really been directly affected by school. Nothing here has every really impacted me to the point where I would remember it for the rest of my life. That’s not because I hate high school and just want it to be over. Although that is partially true, the real impact that high school has brought to me is the fact that I was always with my family or with my friends.
Being a senior and realizing you will be leaving soon has really taken a toll on how I feel about leaving everything behind; my friends, my family, and my chihuahuas! For someone who is close knit to their family, the transition from always being with them to only seeing them during holidays has really made me thankful and appreciative of the time I have with them now.
To be honest, high school will just be a building in my rear view mirror. I am looking forward to going off to college and being away from everything that I have known and have become familiar with for so long now. I am probably coming off as your typical anti school student so let me show my real feelings
I will miss this place. Plain and simple. No matter how much I gripe and moan about being here, I will miss it. The real impact that school has had on me is the fact that it’s the law and I have to be here; however, I would not have wanted it any other way. This is the place I have met some of my best friends, lost some of them, and through it all I found out who I really was.
This journey felt like a lifetime and a blink of an eye all at once but the students and teachers here are all worth remembering. I have met some of the most caring and compassionate people here who have helped me more than they know.
The thing about high school is that I won’t remember the part where I sat in a desk seven hours out of my day, I am going to remember the faces and the voices of the people who have shaped who I am these past four years. I am going to remember the activities I was involved in. I can sit here and say that high school has had no effect on me but it has and I will miss it and the people who have helped me through some of my hardest teenage angsty times.
