Our last goodbye…

Being a senior in high school can be the best year of your life, but it can also be the most stressful time of the year. With all the crazy college applications, making sure you pass all your classes, and having a job, you feel like your life is running in a circle. Sometimes you just want to scream your head off (or maybe that’s just me).


You feel like you are doing the same thing everyday: wake up, go to school, do homework, and go to work.  Then you have one day that defines it all–those days that you will remember for the rest of your life. You wake up and go out with your friends and have the time of your life, finally forgetting about the stress of senior year.


I think that the hardest part for me this year is knowing that May 14th is the last day I will see some of my friends and most of my teachers.


Now, I’m not saying that every friendship will be lost when we walk across that stage May 14th, but when we look back at our high school years, no one can say they are friends with everyone from high school still. We all change and go our separate ways.


When we walk on that stage we will be walking up as a high schooler, but when we are coming off that stage, we will no longer be apart of the hallways at LCHS.  We won’t walk in the hallways, go around goofing off with your friends, or walking to any more classes. Most of all, we will no longer be seen as a child.


I am looking forward to graduation. I’m ready to say that I finally graduated, but I’m not looking forward to saying goodbye to the people that I have seen and come to love over the past two years.


Olivia Johnson (12) said, “ Seeing how far I have gotten in school and reconnecting with my best friend has been my favorite part about this year,” but the hardest part for Johnson is Saying goodbye to everyone. “It might be the last time I see some of these people and that makes me sad,” Jonson said.
Every senior is excited about graduation, it’s the ceremony that leads them into adulthood. I feel as though graduation is going to be filled with excitement and sadness because everyone will be saying by to the people they have known for years.
