Time spent in Washington holds fond childhood memories
After spending my whole life in another state, then moving here and attending WHS in the beginning of my sophomore year, the transition was a bit of a challenge.
Living in a small town, Pullman High School was a much different environment.
Humor, types of friend-groups and personalities seemed so different compared to what I was used to.
As I tried conversing with people at WHS, the subject would always retract back to something that happened in my hometown.
After a while, it turned into a joke of where everything I would say would start with “Oh well back in Washington…” to only prove that my hometown was a much better place.
To be completely honest, I still stand by that statement. But, the relationships that I have grown in Wooster makes WHS nearly as great of a place as Pullman.
Fast-forward to now, two days before the last day of high school. I feel like I have just finished a tutorial on a video-game, but to only realize that I still have not started to face the true challenge: college.
Throughout my years in high school, I have seen many of these two types of kids: ones who work extremely hard and have no interest in a social life, and others who do not work at all, but have their whole life revolved around being social. It is nice to have both, by receiving stellar grades and being around with your friends. However, those are things you should not be concerned about, even if people make fun of you for it. One thing that matters the most is to never let go of what you love to do, no matter who or what gets in the way.
I had the mistake of quitting cello towards the end of my senior year because I got busy, but that was perhaps one of the biggest mistakes I have made.
