today I officially graduated from high school. It only took 5 years and more than a few all nighters. Graduating is a huge deal and now the feelings are rushing in about what is to come. It was one of the things that I have been worrying about over the last few months. So I guess now there’s only one thing to think about.
I think the interesting thing about the anticipation of this trip is the way my excitement changes. Don’t get me wrong. I am excited. But this is the first time I’m really going to be on my own. After these first two weeks I’m going to be alone. At this point in my life the longest I’ve been away from home at one time is two weeks and even then I knew some people or at least the place I was going to be. This is the first real step at me becoming an adult and that is pretty scary.
One minute I’m all excitement and can’t contain it. Believe me. It’s all I’ve been talking about and counting down to. The next I’m freaking out and just nervous because this is a big thing.
I’ll write more tomorrow. Now I’m going to go to bed for the first time as a high school graduate.
