We’re going onto the second month of this shut down and being out of school. We have just recently received word that we will not be returning back to school this academic year. It is a total disappointment for many scholars, including me.
An event I was really looking forward to was my high school graduation. I am an early graduate, I have been working hard since 7th grade with the goal of graduating a year early. And here I am, almost to the finish line, possibly without the ceremony that I’ve been waiting for.
Many people say, “It's better than getting sick.” Yes that's very true but it is still very sad. We need a chance to come to terms that we will not have a “normal graduation” like every class before us has.
I was not planning on attending prom this year. Instead of buying a dress, I have saved my money to have my own personal senior trip with some of my close friends, which I still hope to go on. My heart goes out to all the seniors this year; I hope we get our graduation ceremony since we deserve it. Some advice for underclassmen is have fun in high school but don't get distracted. It's all fun and games “skipping” and not going to class, until there is no class to go to.
