Hi friends, hope we’re all keeping well.
This will be a fairly short and sweet blog post, in which I document my closing thoughts on what has been the final week of a spectacular and eventful 2 years in secondary school (mostly counting the lunch times).
I’ve already recorded all the events and my thoughts on each of the last 5 days in my diary, but I thought it would also be fitting to write some stuff in the blog as well.
Well, what else can I really say other than time has truly flown by. I still vividly remember a moment where I was sitting in the middle of a 3:30 German class, imagining myself finishing school and preparing for the leaving cert. Looking back on that moment now, I can’t really help but wonder why I was so eager to finish school. I could’ve taken so many more pictures and videos of casual day to day occurrences, rather than look toward the future. If I could, I think I would slap the me in that moment’s face and tell him to just live in the moment and capture as many of them as possible. Sheesh, getting a bit philosophical now.
I think it might also be fitting to include an excerpt from my last day of school’s diary entry, with some stuff edited, which I think perfectly encapsulated what I was thinking once I got home from school.
Well diary, how am I feeling? Honestly, everything feels so surreal right now. That’s it. My 6 years of high school are over, and I’ll most likely never see many of my IOE acquaintances ever again. Viv and a few others have mentioned how it was just ‘hitting’ them at times, and I think it ‘hit me’ as well once I got home. Empty, sad, sudden, but hopeful and reflecting, like the end of a holiday or summer camp. Am I making any sense right now? Eh, I don’t really care. The future may be uncertain and dark right now, but no matter what, I’ll definitely always move forward, alone if need be, in order to achieve my goals. No matter what, I’ll keep these memories in the bottom of my heart, and trudge forward. Always, that’s a promise.
Damn it, I’ll miss these guys
Well, for the one person who may be reading this right now, I’d probably tell you to live in the present, enjoy it while you can, and capture the moment, so your future self will stop being so regretful and whiny.
Yep, okay, cool, that’s about it. I’ll see you guys in the next probably unnecessary and personal blog post, stay safe.
