Graduation

I’m a Junior this year, and I will be graduating next year. Over the past few weeks I have really been thinking about how life has seemed to fly by. When your not paying attention to what is going on, and what is going to be happening in the future, time kind of just slips from your hands. It feels like just yesterday I was having my fourth birthday, and it feels like just yesterday I was having my first day of sixth grade, and it feels like I just had my first year of high school… and now I’m in the middle of my Junior year of high school. Its kind of scary to think that I will be graduating in the next year, and then I’m off to college. It will make it easier to handle being out there on my own if I go to a college in-state, but I’m thinking about going to a college in South Dakota. Mom doesn’t want me to be so far away, and my step dad (I call him dad, because he has been here since I was 5, and I’m 17 now), he doesn’t want to lose his little girl, I’m the oldest, but still, he doesn’t want his little girl to grow up to quickly…. no dad does. I have so many things to look forward to, and at the same time, I have so many things to be nervous about. I have mixed emotions about this, I’m not confused, I’m just not sure weather I should be excited, or nervous. 🙂
