day after endless day, i have waited for this moment to arrive. and finally, it's here! freedom, my friends. it's ours. no more hearing that stupid alarm clock go off every morning making me wake up to another day of school. yes, i admit (and not shamefully) that i did like school. almost always i looked forward to seeing friends and having fun in class. unless of course i had a total of 3 hours of sleep the night before. cause then i lacked the ability to focus and considered the lectures of teachers nothing more than something keeping me from sleeping. but yes, school was good.
and i've grown a lot this year. more so than i think i ever have during a school year. and i don't mean height-wise. cause i seriously don't think i've grown for the past 2 years. but i mean i've learned a lot about myself this year. i know when enough is enough for me and when too much of something can turn out to be good. i've seen which friends are sincere and which friends i can always turn to. but i've also found friends that somehow down the road, i will find myself without. and i'm okay with that. i've had a number of breakdowns this year, but they've all made me a stronger person. they've opened my eyes to obstacles that may seem difficult to overcome at first, but try and try again, and i can make it.
there are friendships that i have gained this year that i am forever grateful for. i believe people come into your life for a reason and this year, i have found out a lot of those reasons. whether it be for a shoulder to cry on or a friend to laugh with, they were there. i really am the luckiest person on earth to have them in my life.
and to top it all off, the last day of school was one of the best days of my life. no joke. it was perfect. our class has become so much closer and i could not have asked for better people to spend the day with. oa class of 2009 gets stronger with every passing day. it's going to be hard leaving them once we graduate. i mean, it was hard just saying goodbye after the bonfire. but really, yesterday was amazing. successful tanning, mormon kissing game/kissing rugby (whatever you wanna call it), walking along main street, volleyball, the perfect water temperature, music, talking, laying in a whole in the sand, "you have a strong eyebrow bone" (AHAHHAHHHAHhahaHA :DD), making shapes out of nothing, the sound of the ocean, foooood, sleeping on the beach, and so much more. dang. not even getting a splinter in my foot could ruin my day. nothing could. i love you class of 2009! WE'RE JUNIORS!
i can't believe i didn't take any pictures at the beach yesterday. but that's okay. cause this time, i don't need pictures to remember this day by. i'll never forget it :)
