Life As A Senior

Our time has come, where we must mature to face the real world. We must leave our childish ways and gain adult responsibilities. Our blacktop days have long faded and playing in the playground is a thing from the past. Our childhood innocence has diminished and we are now judged by what we say and do. We were once curious and cute kindergarteners eager to learn all we could. Now it is a challenge for us to comprehend just enough Trigonometry to pass the class. We think we are ready to graduate high school and move onto the next big step “college,” but then we stop and realize that maybe we should have studied harder, paid attention more often, and done all the extra credit possible. Now, we cannot turn back and change the past, but now must write our own life stories. We have failed miserably, but acquired confidence through our downfalls. We have set goals for our lives, which undoubtedly change from time to time, and must focus on achieving them. We have at times become our own worst enemy, but still manage to revive ourselves from our dreadful mistakes. We have learned from chapel sermons and apply them to our lives. We have been taught to believe in GOD and know that He is the answer. Without Him, we have nothing but heartaches. There is no more time left, no ultimatums; we are at a major crossroad in life, we alone choose our destiny. We can no longer hope for what our future holds, but realize that our future is now and our everyday decisions determine the outcome.
