New experiences just on horizon

With only a few months left until graduation, seniors are completing last minute preparations.

We have to order invitations, get sized for a cap and gown, and on a bigger scope, face the truth that the real world is staring us in the face.

These past 12 years were supposed to prepare us for the future. Prepare us for the work force so we as a whole can contribute to society. Having to make that step is quickly springing on the class of 2009.

I mean, how does one go from high school to college? Is it harder? Is it easier? Is college really worth it?

All of these questions are frequently answered by past graduates and family members. But how can we know until we try it for ourselves? What is easy to some could be hard for others.

Not only having new teachers and classroom settings, but having to meet new people and make new friends will be a major change in our lives.

We have spent the entire sum of our lives building relationships with people only to have them disappear when we go to college.

This is going to be one of the hardest things to cope with in my opinion.

Making all new friends is very plausible, but keeping old relationships strong could be a helpful way to get through college with greater ease.

Through this short amount of time that we seniors have left, we should all try and enjoy the experience.

Yes, I know that many of us do not like our school, or school in general for that matter, but how often are you a senior in high school?

We should try and enjoy these last few months with each other because I promise they will go by much quicker than we want them to.

I personally enjoy getting to live at home and have food cooked for me!

College is going to be a very unique and amazing experience; however, let’s not forget that college equals having to grow up. Sometimes it’s a lot faster than we want.
