With my high school career coming to an end, I have come to a realization…

Life really is an exciting, short, yet bitter adventure…

Being young gives us, especially high school students, the advantage of being able to experience new things without so many restraints. That, we should take advantage of.  As young adults, we still have so many firsts we are yet to experience: our first home, first true love, first big professional achievement and the list goes on. We are only at the beginning of our journey and it’s exciting to think of all the great things that are waiting for us down the track. Generally speaking our youth is a time that is unburdened by boring tasks like paying bills and mortgages. Even though when you grow older you become more independent and free in a sense, being unrestrained by responsibilities is a type of freedom in itself. Make the most of it!

Don’t be afraid to try new things. Some people find it scary to do so, but don’t. There is nothing to be afraid of. The worst thing that could happen is to discover that whatever that you tried isn’t meant for you. But it’ll be alright because there is something, somewhere made to fit your own character. Find yourself, find your passion, find something that you love to do. And when you do, don’t give up on it. You are your very own priority, no one else’s and you are the only one capable of making yourself the very best you could ever be.

I remember, 3 years ago, when I first stepped onto my high school campus, I was a little fetus who were surrounded by a whole bunch of giants. I was the short 4’11 girl, who looked up at everyone. But now, I’m 5’2 with the attitude of someone who’s 6’2. Ive grown much more confident about the things I do. I have been able to gain the courage to try new things. Do everything that I could do the make the most out of my life. I was able to drive for a road trip, get a job, feed the homeless, and so much more. I like knowing that I’m living my life with a purpose. Though, it is unclear to me. I know that I am serving myself to others and I’m happy with that because I’ve been given enough. Now it’s time to give back and utilize all that we are provided with tied with our knowledge, for others.
