Well everyone, I am officially done with high school! It seems like I was just writing this post on the first day of my senior year at the end of last August. How has time flown by so quickly...? Being done doesn't feel real. I'm not sad. I'm not excited. I'm not really anything. I feel as though I'll just keep going to school like I've always done. Waking up late, rushing to school, sleeping through most of the day, and complaining about my classmates. You know, what I do best. But all of that's over. A whole chapter of my life is over.

I was expecting to cry today or feel something because I'm a super sentimental and nostalgic person. But I didn't. I couldn't cry even though I wanted to. I'm not sure if I want it all to be over. I'm scared. Going off into the unknown and leaving everything I have here...especially my family. I know that they'll always be waiting here for me when I get back but lately I've just been realizing how much I'll truly miss them while I'm away at college. They are mean so much to me.

I feel like every day my feelings on this or going to change. There are going to be days I'm thankful I'm done. Some days I'm going to be sad. All I know is that I'm thankful for the present and this amazing journey that I've been on. I realize that I wouldn't want to be anyone else. I'm so satisfied with who I've become in high school and I'm finally...proud of myself. And I think being just me is the thing in life I'm most proud of.

Thank you all for always being here with me in this journey. Homecoming. Prom. The Senior Paper. The frustrations I had with my classmates. Winning best dressed. Being disappointed at the award ceremony. The relief I felt on my spring, and winter breaks. Stupid AP Calculus (I'll never miss you). The problems I had with being lonely, having no friends, and being social awkward. Thank you putting up with me on my bad days, and lifting me up on my best. I'm so glad that I get to bring you all to Kent State with me this fall. It's going to be a journey of a lifetime for me

With much love, Lauren.

Lauren said...

I know exactly how you feel. I'm not sad at all about leaving high school, and am super excited (like, crazy excited) about college, but today as I was looking over my schedule for next year and seeing that I have to wake up early for my 7:40am class ... it hit me that OH MY GOSH, we're actually going to college and I have to do things on my own. That was the first time I felt kind of scared to go.

But I know it's going to be awesome and for now you have the summer to look forward to. Whoop whoop! Aww yeeah summer. :)

Congratulations!

I know what you mean about the not crying. I never cry at the leaving point, because it doesnt feel over then. It doesn't feel absent till it is -and there will be plenty of nostalgia later. :)

I hope you have a great summer.

Yay Lauren! It must feel so nice to finally be done! Now you're free, haha:) I still have 4 days left after today, but I'm already been in tears from all the seniors leaving! Yesterday was my track banquet and the tears just kept falling!

I wish you the best at Kent <3
