The end to a long, fun journey
I feel I have grown a lot this year as a student, a writer, as a person and as a friend. Specifically in English I have learned that writing is a passion for me and next year I am excited to continue to learn who I am as a writer. Now not everything has been smiles and sunshine, there have been harder parts of school and life, but I have learned that that’s ok. There are always times in English when the endless metacognition or excessive commenting have seeming over the top or unnecessary, but I know that they were all for bettering us as learners, building endurance for the harder parts of school and I will take that with me in high school. It has been a less than ideal ending to a great five years of my life, but I am proud to be graduating and moving on. While I am scared for high school, I am determined to make life long connections much like the ones I have made at Fenn. The end of this year feels different and I think that this is due to the fact that I haven’t yet fully realized that next year I won’t be at Fenn. I know one of these days it’s going to hit me and I will definitely be sad, but I want to feel happy about my time at Fenn rather than feeling sad it’s over. Fenn has prepared me for so much to come down the line and I could not be more great full for that. I really don’t know a life without Fenn, the long days and commutes have been a massive part of my life and in an instant, it’s all over. It feels like just yesterday Mrs. Smith was welcoming me to her classroom and now, now I am about to be entering high school. It’s a big step and it does scare me a little, but I know that I am going to do well and thrive even if I don’t always feel like it. To think that today is the last day of school is weird, it’s honestly hard to wrap my mind around and I think I will soon fully realize how much Fenn meant to me. It’s a hard task to recap a large chunk of your childhood, it’s both nostalgic and eye opening, but I am glad I have the chance to reflect. I may not know a life without Fenn, but I’m excited to explore the unknown, learn new things, meet new people and take all the best parts of Fenn with me.
