Graduation Time!

So this is actually happening, graduation is this week. I am so happy and relieved and at the same time, like wow it’s finally over. Real life started happening a long time ago but now it seems like a different type of real. Deep breathe, life is happening. How is the craziness of graduation and all that comes with it going with you?

    For me, graduation was one of the most stressful yet happiest days of high school. It was stressful, due to the fact that I was overwhelmed by the amount of people I had to see and the lack of connectedness I felt for my fellow students, but it was also amazing to know that I was finally done. I think graduation can be sort of over idealized in a lot of ways, but ultimately, it’s pretty great.

    So it’s been a week since graduation for me and it already feels like forever ago. I’m kinda proud of myself, even though most times that’s hard to admit. There was a really cool keynote speaker that went to high school where I did and now has the lead role in The Book of Mormon on Broadway. He was soo funny and so real. He left us with 4 things he wanted us to remember. 1) nothing is impossible 2)do what you love 3)don’t settle 4)don’t become Kim Kardashian. Besides for the laughs, I really liked how he noted how much he appreciates all the people who have believed in him even before he believed in himself. It was a perfect reminder on a day that I have so many people to thank for helping get me here.

    I heard that speaker too, he was awesome. I thought it would be boring considering the previous keynote speakers I have heard, but this one was soo good. All these large events are really like a whirlwind. It was like all these events all at once, birthdays, prom, graduation, summer. Now it is time to readjust to just normal day to day life, which now doesn’t include high school. Which leaves you with that looming question, what now? Graduation has come and gone and now it’s time to take that next step, whatever it might be. What does your next step look like?

    My next steps are going to be with the mindset that it’s okay to take it slow. Just because going away to college is the norm, doesn’t mean what I’m doing is wrong. When I’m ready to go away I will know, and for right now I’m gonna just do some living.

    Aw, congrats guys thats awesome. highschool graduations are a great start.. now its all about growing up from here on out lol

    I like that your next steps are taking it slow and just living right now Sam, that’s what Im doing now. Life always seems to just have so much structure and it seems like when ppl go down the unbeaten path, their rebels.. and all this other stuff.
