On Thursday, I graduated high school. Hard work, taking 6 college level courses, putting in the work to get those community service hours for the National Society of High School Scholars and ARCHON, of which I can proudly say I am a member of, making those extensive study guides for every test and quiz (that everyone would try to steal), putting my all into every assignment, paper and AP test, have finally paid off. Looking back at my transcript, I am in awe, during my years in high school I have found my passion and my future major in college, I've created amazing memories that will stay with me for a lifetime. Making awesome friends and meeting amazing teachers were the truest cornerstone of my high school experience.
Graduation, accession, commencement, all algorithms commemorating the beginning of another journey of academia. These sentiments now branded in my sub conscious as I anxiously await my next chapter. Now that my high school chapter is closed I look to my future with wide eyes knowing that though college is a big task to tackle, I can do anything I put my mind to. Being the neurotic planner that I am I can't help but feel like I need to do something, anything to be more prepared for my next journey. However, I breathe deeply with the realization that I've already done what I've needed to do by graduating with honors, all that's left to do now is dorm shopping.
Even though I love being in NYC, I am definitely ready for a change in surroundings and a new journey, I am especially excited to explore my passions more within my International Relations Major. Dorming three hours away at College should prove to be an exciting new experience for me filled with newfound freedom and knowledge. All I know is, like my cap said, The Best is Yet to Come.
