Everyone said that these past four years would be the quickest years of your life. I remember being a shy little freshman who stayed within her circle of friends and always did the “right thing.” As I grew older and years flew by, I realized that there was more to my life than the one square mile of Mt. Ephraim. My circle of friends increased its circumference and I became more like a better version of myself each day.

By junior year my freshman year self seemed like I stranger. I found out my voice can definitely travel and reach very high volumes because everyone is constantly asking me why I am screaming. It turns out I got both of my 5 year-old- self’s dream jobs: an ice cream girl and a babysitter– I know, big accomplishment. I also have mastered Happy Birthday on the piano after about 20 tries.

I’ve learned that my driving skills are what I would call okay. I’m a safe driver, pretty cautious, I just have trees fall on my car during a storm, hit a Sonic pole by accident and knock out my headlight which we tied on with shoe laces, and to top it off, run over a bright blue spray paint can and don’t check to see what I hit. I honestly wanted to draw fish in the blue paint, but my parents didn’t think was too funny.

Overall, my high school experience has had its up and downs, but that’s just life. Everything is temporary and sometimes looking too far into the future makes you forget about the present.
