Well, I graduated on Friday. Although I’m very happy to be able to hold my high school diploma, a document that I worked hard for, right now my life doesn’t feel all that incredibly different. Today, although uncharacteristically cold and dreary for this time of year, seemed like the beginning of just another ordinary summer vacation. I don’t think the realization that I no longer belong to Independent School District 181 or that I may never again see some of the people I’ve grown accustomed to seeing on a day-to-day basis for the last three, seven, and – in some cases – thirteen years will set in until I begin attending the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks 12 weeks from now on August 22.
I’m a bit apprehensive about the uncertainties of the future, yet I’m also excited to venture out of basically the only world I’ve ever known here in Brainerd and meet plenty of new people and experience (for complete lack of a better term) new things.
Congratulations class of 2005!
