now what?

as most of you know, i have graduated. i have no pictures to post, no awesome words of how excited i am to be moving on because well, im not sure i want to. i have loved being a highschool student which may be just one reason i want to be a high school english teacher. here i am sitting at my desk with my new fancy schmancy laptop comtemplating my english essay for college (ALREADY?!) i have already taken my math placement exam and have pretty much decided my future. how can that NOT scare anyone? my senior year of high school could not have been better. i couldnt have asked for better friends or teachers. (well, maybe one or two) :)
i have an awesome family who loves and supports me and i am glad that i was able to spend my senior year having some fun. i love my job at hallmark and am getting hyped for the christmas boxes to be arriving within days. :) (oh, christmas in june/july...how i've missed you so) i cant wait for orientation, but then the reality of the situation will be realized. i will defiently miss highschool...not the insane drama i've had. but the amazing realtionships i have been able to develop with friends that may seem not so my type. i have loved aiding for my english teacher- i got to see the behind-the-scenes :) (in fact...i WAS the behind-the-scenes coordinator) to those who are just entering highschool---make the most of it. but dont feel pressured to join clubs or anything. i have no regrets. just join one. you dont want to look like a total loser. :)
highschool--you've been great.
college--im a little afraid of you, but im sure it'll be fun...it better be.

Congratulations Emma! I also LOVED high school. But - seriously - I loved, loved, LOVED college!

Couldn't stand high school. I didn't get why I couldn't be friends with everyone. but english was good such sweet release. to learn about Macbeth and trancend my drama to discover his was awesome. This is where real learning starts because from here on education is about learning stuff you will use everyday. good luck.

I agree with Shayleen. I liked high school, but loved, loved, loved college. In fact, I'm not completely sure that I'm done going to school. Maybe I'll join you at the Clifton campus!

Whatever happens Em, you'll be great. As Dory, the blue fish says, "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!"

You'll do great - and it was good to see you at work yesterday. Katie was excited to see someone she knew.

You will succeed in life, because you put your heart into it and do your best with everything you try. Enjoy the adventure of college!
