A New Beginning
With graduation only a few days away, I've been putting a lot of thought into whats about to unfold. I've come to realize that many people do one of two things as graduation nears- Get excited, or panic. Luckily my semi-rightful mind has been thrilled with excitement. I cant wait to start college, I can't wait to choose my own schedule, I can't wait to go to the library in between classes with a blanket, my laptop and an iced-2pump cinnamon-nonfat-nowhip-whitemocha while I study, or go to yoga classes at the university gym while I wait for my next class to start. I guess what I'm generally getting to is that I'm excited for the freedom of being able to make my own decisions, and not have an Assistant Principle or supervisor or parent make them for me. I always felt high school was like a farm filled with a herd of cattle that are told what to do and how to do it; theres little or no room for innovation or out-of-the-box learning. The conformist mentality of high school was always one of my pet peeves, too. I never understood why people were always trying to be like others. It's like no one bothers to be original, why? Some people take intellectuality as a joke, but those same people will be suffering and asking the smarter individuals for help when college bites them in the ass. Karma is a bitch.
