Seniors are seen as the top dogs of the school. They rule the halls and seem to have everything in order. Underclassman, on the other hand, are just trying to figure out what they're doing with their lives and how they are going to maintain a steady GPA and keep a social life. As the seniors prepare for their life ahead, freshman and sophomores will spend their time on summer homework. This transition means that next year there will be new seniors, juniors, and so on. The year ahead for upcoming juniors will be full of studying and testing and seniors will finally be able to get the relaxation they deserve. While the freshmen and sophomores will be trying oh-so-desperately not to slack off.
Another struggle that comes along with graduation is the fear of losing the ones we’re close to. Freshman Kara Allen has made new friends that are seniors, however with the upcoming year, most of her friends are leaving for college. “I’m really upset that my senior friends are leaving, but i’m excited that they get to start the next part of their lives,” stated Allen.
Current junior Erica Faughn is ready for her senior year to arrive. “Next year I’m most excited to be a senior. I feel like I’ve been waiting such a long time to be one and it’s crazy that I finally will become one,” said Faughn. However, Faughn is also “nervous to start applying to colleges and to start planning the next chapter of [her] life.”
As the 2016-17 school year is coming to an end the excitement for moving into the next grade is building up, and even though stress will be associated with this growth, all it means is that you’re one step closer to graduating.
