Everybody, Partner Up!
I got to visit the new DLSNC building at the groundbreaking ceremony in July. The event was small and cute. I think we all had a pretty enjoyable adventure. Taking pictures in masks was definitely very interesting. I never would’ve thought I’d get the chance to do that! Our posing instructions were simple, “Smile with your eyes!” If you’re wondering how that’s even possible, I don’t know. But we also got to tour the inside of the school, and that was definitely worth it! Although it currently needs a little work, I’m excited to see the “After.” This building is going to have the best makeover ever! The sanctuary was brilliantly magnificent, and the bathrooms were eerily frightening (still fun to explore, though). There was also a huge pipe organ (in the sanctuary, not the bathroom). Hands down, best field trip ever.
“I am a senior.” Aaaah. It’s not real. I’m going to spend the last year of my entire high school life and career (to make it sound extra fancy), quite possibly, at home! It cannot be real. I have barely even processed that I am now a senior! I was just a junior! What in the world? I was just a sophomore even, like last week! Don’t even get me started on freshman year. Where did it all go? I have to find a new place to call home now (college. Yes, I’m dramatic). I have to grow up. Noo! I can’t believe it’s real.
I have full belief that we can do this. I can do this. You can do this. We are going to keep walking until we get to the end of that tunnel. It’s pretty dark right now. If you’re scared (and it’s okay if you are), feel free to ask for a hand to hold. Leave nobody behind! We will get through this together! Does this sound like cheesy, false hope? Maybe. But perspective! They are just a few words on paper. They can’t hurt you either way. So, keep going! Run and scream if you want! But everybody, partner up!
