Today I close a chapter of my life as I had my final day at the school that I have been attending for the last 4 years. It's been a mixture of feelings today and to be quite honest I don't think it has fully hit me that I won't be returning. Throughout the years of going there I have grown so much, not just physically and academically but as a person- even over the past year- I have really come to find out a lot about myself. Although some experiences were not the best over these past four years, rather than looking back with remorse, I would rather look at it as experiences that have helped to build my character. Especially this year I have really found out who my close friends are, and I am thankful for all of them.
As I reflect on the past four years, yes I am sad to leave it behind, but above the sadness is excitement to start fresh and begin bigger and greater adventures. Leaving this school is just like ending a chapter, the books not over but rather it's just moving onto a new part taking with it the important people and leaving behind others while also introducing new people and new experiences. Right now I am embracing the change that I am about to face with open arms but I will always remember where I came from.
