Avery’s last statement

Thoughts from a graduating senior
Averys last statement

The end of the year has finally come and while I wish I was more sad, I’m ecstatic. Between the endless calculus homework and the day to day assignments, I am ready to be sent off to my future. I have to thank all the teachers who have guided me through the years. I would also like to thank Mr. McBriar for making the newspaper class one of my favorite classes in high school. I feel like I missed out not joining sooner.

It’s crazy to think that the year 2024 seemed so far away but now that it’s here it doesn’t seem like it was that long ago I was 10 baffled at how long it was going to take to get here. This year started off bittersweet but as it went on I got I realized just how hard senioritis hits. I didn’t believe in senioritis as a junior because it was hard to understand how people would want to leave a place where all their friends are at. Now I look at graduation as a beginning, not an end.

The start of my high school career was rough thanks to COVID, but through the years I’ve learned so many great lessons. If I had to pick the worst year for me, it would have been junior year. Junior year was filled with those last classes you can fit in before senior year when you can relax. Unless you are a prodigy and decide to take all the AP classes you can before college. My senior year has been much better in the way that it really made me realize how ready I really am.

I leave my last article saying that life is short but if you take in every moment, it turns out to be quite long. I personally cannot wait to see where I go and especially where my friends end up.
