Looking back/moving forward
High school was not the easiest ride, but the memories that I made during those four years will keep me warm when the nights grow cold. It’s a beautiful thing when you finally grow into a person you’re proud to see looking back at you, and I couldn’t have done that without my time in school. My diploma may have not had the effect I thought it would, but seeing my parents cheering for a daughter that didn’t always make them proud, did. Give them hell, Class of 2013.
