Pessimist finds the bright side
I remember my first year in Wooster when I first moved here from Pennsylvania and I thought Wooster was just a pathetic little town, but eventually I started to like it and WHS.
There is the common perception that high school will be some of your worst years in life, and that life does not start until entering college. But to me, high school has been what I made it. If students just spend four years of their lives moping around pitifully, of course they would not enjoy it.
So instead of being pathetic and pitiful all the time, everyone should take an active step to better themselves in high school.
High school represents the beginning of transformational journey. While college is definitely an essential step in life, high school is the first step that everyone needs to take to build a steady foundation, although I will admit that senioritis has hit me hard this year.
Probably one of my best decisions in high school was joining BLADE, a class in which I’ve learned so much from our wonderful adviser Kristi Hiner to guide me on the path of life. No matter where I am, I will always fight for BLADE.
BLADE is where I found my true friends whom I could cherish. It is where I found my niche, my people.
After moving around a lot during my childhood, I thought it would be too difficult for me to find a group of friends where I could feel comfortable with myself, but BLADE gave me that opportunity. And, even though we are all going on our separate journeys after graduation, I know that we will find ways to come back to each other, because that’s what friends do. They are always there for each other.
