Last Tuesday I entered the halls of CCH knowing that it would be my last first day here. I recall asking myself where all the grade twelves were and that’s when it hit me. I am in grade twelve!
My time spent here has gone by so incredibly fast. I remember wandering around trying to find my class on my very first day, in what seemed to be a maze of a school. Now I know this place like the back of my hand. I just can’t seem to wrap my head around the idea that soon enough, I won’t be roaming these halls anymore.
And so…I made a bucket list. Not that I plan on kicking the bucket anytime soon, but I realized that I now have a limited amount of time to accomplish a number of crazy and somewhat cliché adolescent goals. My list includes activities such as super fanning at a football game, surviving calculus, and well…some other things that might be just a bit too embarrassing to mention in a blog post. Then again, what’s high school for if you can’t come out with a few embarrassing stories to tell? I’m not completely sure what to expect from this year but I cannot wait to see what’s to come. I’m a little nervous, a lot excited, and somewhere in between when it comes to figuring out what I want to do with my life now.
So for all of the seniors at CCH, I hope you’ll make the most out of your last year here, make your own “bucket” list, and embarrass yourselves along with me.
