This month, this culminating month, has been and is going to be the best month ever. I am loathe to look past May, when everything will change. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for college. Uber excited. But nothing will be the same. I’ll be working all summer, and then I’ll be off to school and a new life. I will never be around this same group of friends in this same situation anymore. It’s quite possible (probable even) that after a few years, most of my high school friends will no longer be in my life.
I don’t even want to think about that. Right now, I am living in the moment. I’m working a little, studying a little, but mostly I’m having fun. I’ve been going out with my friends after band rehearsal, and our last concert is this week. That is going to be one big party. Then comes prom, which promises to be epic, and all of our respective graduation parties. I am so excited.
I’m on a high right now. Yesterday we had our last band competition, and we hung out at an amusement park all day. I finally rode all the roller coasters in the park. I never thought I was a coaster person, but I guess I am. The coasters, combined with the joy of companionship, gave me such a high that I am still coming down from it. I am so happy. And sad.
- I must, must hang on to these friendships!
- I am so thankful that I have them.
