your last year in highschool doesn't always mean you're "growing up". I am beginning my last year of highschool and as it seems i'm growing up, it really depends on the person, maturity, and where you are in life. I was asked by a young girl, "are you scared...being a senior?" I wouldn't say so much as scared. nervous, anxious, & excited - not quite scared.
I am graduating beside three of my best friends, and I couldn't have it better. I feel ready and I don't. I have mixed feelings about most of it. this year is filled with new beginnings, and that part excites me. it starts to feel right as life begins to unravel. I am going on: not freaking out, pursuing things slowly, enjoying life, and soaking up the memories of the coming year. God is good and He has plans - some of them I may not even know about yet. and that's okay, because this is life and I am here to live it.
I encourage you (as a senior or not) to live the next year as your first. don't rush, don't panic. just trust.
this is it, 2015...here we go!
