Graduating brings me so many mixed emotions. At the beginning of the year, I wanted this year to be over as soon as possible. However as we are just a few days away from graduation, I kinda do not want it to end. Don’t get me wrong, I am completely over high school courses but I am going to miss so many aspects of senior life. I am going to miss going out to lunch with Iliana, Juritzi, and Luis. Sharing laughs with all the newspaper staff and spilling some tea with Mrs. Stroud. Listening to “real rap music” with Victor and reminiscing about junior year with Alan. I am so grateful for all the wonderful people I have met during high school and wholeheartedly wish to keep in contact with everyone.

Sadly, it is time to move on. I have worked so hard to get into The University of Oklahoma and am so happy to embark on a new journey. I am also so blessed to have my first year 90% paid off. As for a major, I am still undecided but know I will find something that piques my interest. I look forward to being a little more independent and meeting more amazing people.

As for my personal life, I am the absolute most content. I have both of my amazing parents that never fail to rally behind my dreams.  A beautiful baby sister that has become the most important thing in my life. I also want to applaud myself. The high school era has brought upon me mountains of stress and uncertainty and I know I am pretty badass to have overcome it. I love sfs but I am so happy to say bye. 

Catch you on the flippity flip(:
