Well, I did it. I graduated today. I AM OFFICIALLY DONE WITH HIGH SCHOOL.
It feels… weird, I guess. Graduating, I mean.
Because on one hand, not much changed: I finished my final assignment, and that was it. I finished my schoolwork for the week and then I was DONE with high school forever. Just like that.
On the other hand, my mind is still getting used to the idea that I am DONE. Because you spend years and years in high school, not to mention in all the grades that come before that, and it’s just like… wait, I’m finally done? It’s already almost time for me to head off to COLLEGE?! Eeeeeeeep.
Anyway, here are some of the things I did on my Very Last Day of School:
- Stayed in bed until like ten just because I could
- Worked on a bunch of awesome poetry stuff about Robert Frost
- Got a TON of messages on Facebook about Agent Carter being renewed, which made my day even more awesome (seriously, you guys are the best & thanks for geeking out with me!)
- Ate lunch using these dorky school lunch trays we have because why not
- Went for a nice walk with my mom, enjoying the sunshine and commenting on how some the kids at the elementary school just down the road are probably taller than me because I am TINY
- Wrote a report about aliens on Doctor Who as part of astronomy (which I’m thinking about turning into a blog post, because I had so much fun with it!)
- Was extraordinarily happy because YAY NO MORE ASSIGNMENTS UNTIL COLLEGE WOW YAY
- Received my fancy-schmancy shiny new diploma (thanks, Mom and Dad!)
- Went to a restaurant for dinner
Aaaaand that’s about it, honestly. I did consider “celebrating” by myself by, like, watching some more episodes of Daredevil on Netflix or something, but I’m tired. So I’ll just head off to bed now, I guess, and keep freaking out a little bit on the inside because WOW IT IS ALMOST TIME FOR ME TO HEAD OFF TO COLLEGE AND LIVE ON MY OWN AND WOW I AM EXCITED AND ALSO TERRIFIED.
Time passes really quickly, doesn’t it? I can’t believe it’s already been four years since the beginning of high school, ten years since my family started homeschooling, and thirteen years since my first day of kindergarten.
So, anyway. I’m pretty happy right now, and proud of myself, and looking forward to seeing what happens during the next few years of my life!
Have a lovely evening, and I wish the best of luck to all my fellow high school graduates!
