A flurry of Freshman students scramble past, my feet drag along behind me as I mosey from class to class. I try to avoid falling asleep WHILE walking, which is something that seems very plausible at this point in the year. I sit down in front of the baron, wooden desk. The teacher slides a fifty question test in front of me and I manage to muster up enough energy to pick up my pencil and fill in the scantron. These are scenarios we are all familiar with, and as a senior only one week away from graduation, this is what the day to day feels like, our secondary education has been reduced to a repetitive, monotonous and numbing experience. Don't get me wrong, my high school career was awesome, but I'm glad it's coming to a close.
Some people feel like it's too soon, others feel like it's too late - but I feel like this is the perfect time for me to start life on my own. We grow up in our homes, with our parents and in the classroom, and we're not really accustomed to anything else. But now, times have changed, and we are about to embark on something that we've never done before, something that's completely new (and intimidating). But I'm ready.
