Today... was the last day.

I guess I should be happy-- god knows everybody else is-- but I can't help but think more about the people I'm leaving behind than my newfound freedom from getting up at 5:00 in the morning. There are lots of people I talked with today that I may never see again, at least not after commencement. Then there are still others who I'll try my best to keep in contact with, but who I really fear I won't be able to. Add that to fears about college (still haven't applied, don't know how I'm gonna pay for it, etc.), and graduation really doesn't bring me any excitement at all. I guess I'd fooled myself into thinking I had a social life, but now that school's out I realize how integral a part it played in said social life. Now that it's out, how long are me and my friends going to keep in contact? Will I be able to make any more friends in college with my crippling social anxiety?

That's it. I just figured it out. For a long time, until near the end of Junior High, I really didn't have any friends. But now that I'm a Senior, I have a lot of them; my AP classes were especially opportune for making new friends this year, for example. But now that I'm leaving school, I'm realizing that all that progress is pretty much gone, and I'm starting with a clean slate. Maybe I'm just afraid of losing all that ground when it's so newly gained. It really felt good to have that for the short time I had it, so I guess the wide world and all its strangers daunts me a little.

But I should really cut out the sad stuff and get to the good parts of the day, shouldn't I? I decided to take my Mom's digital camera with me on the last day so I could take photos of all the people that made my school experience such a great part of my life. It's the end of an era, and it should be preserved as such. I took about 110 photos in total, but I have selected my favorites out of them to show to you guys here.

Taylor as Reno.

Michael as Deer in Headlights.

Beth as Beth and Taylor as Reno as Taylor.

The Senior Assembly.

Andra. First met her in Japanese 1 back in the first sememster of my Sophomore year. Damn, it seems like such a short time ago... But long at the same time, if you get that.

Cat. The camera was being stubborn at first, so I didn't get a picture of her until after her boyfriend had left. Bah.


A shot of my Psych class.

Ms. Dann, my AP Lit teacher.

Caitlin Stevenson posing for the camera (I think? >>;).

My bud Allen signing yearbooks.

The aftermath of the giant foodfight in second lunch. (you can't really see much, but that one column is splattered with ketchup. >.>') We, thankfully, were unscathed, but some people...

...were not so lucky. Allen was in the middle of it, poor guy. But really, the food fight was one of the things that I'm really going to remember about the last day. It livened up what was otherwise a pretty sad day for me!

Some of the usual suspects from AP Lit. Left to right: McKenzie, Cassandra, Aaron, and Jackie.

A class pic of AP Lit. I think this one's my favorite. I've got a class pic of AP Gov that Ms. Prestin's going to send to me, so I may update with that later.

Jim Topper in my AP Gov class. He's a crazy conservative, but he's actually pretty agreeable when he's not talking politics (which, admittedly, is not often enough >>;;).

Ms. Prestin, my AP Gov teacher.

Best use of class time ever. That's Super Mario World, in case you were wondering.

An Uno game that was going on during Gov. You really hear the most entertaining conversations in that class, especially during free days like this. ^^;;

Allen being Allen. That's his most admirable trait, y'know. XD

Oh, god. The end is near.

It's over!

A final goodbye. Despite some tough times and heartache, I really am gonna miss that school.

Well, from here I can only go forward. Go forward, and make a life worth looking forward to.

I'll let you know how that goes. >>;;
