With prom just done and over with, it is just starting to really hit me that the end of the school is almost over and I’m finally going to graduate. It doesn’t seem like I’ve been in high school at L.A. river for four years, it seems like it was only a year or two. These last two or three weeks have been hectic because grades are due and all these projects that are being given to me are really stressing me out. Teachers keep giving us project after project, like when we’re done with one the next we are already being given another one. It just really stresses me and I know that it also stresses the other seniors that have to do the same thing. I feel sad that my school year is going to end, but at the same time I’m glad that I had the chance to do things at L.A. River because I’ve done so many things that I never thought I would ever do. Like when we did that collective that helped the homeless.
Giving to the community really makes me feel good and makes me appreciate more of what is given to me. As of now, I’m just focusing on my grades and getting my work done and also trying to spend the time that is left with my friends and make the best of it. Something else that I keep thinking about is what I’m going to do after I graduate because I know I want to go to college. But I also want to get a job. I wonder what kind of job I’m going to have. I hope that the job that I’m going to have can work with the time I have to be at college. Another thing that I wonder about is when I have my job is that I’m not sure what I’ll be doing with that money. Would I help my parents buy a house or would I use the money to buy myself another car?
