Seniors Look to the Future by Jackie Perez c/o 14

MILBY_Senior year in high school is not fun at all when you’re trying to go to college and what not. It’s pretty stressful actually meeting deadlines for college applications, essays and scholarships. I feel like I’m done with high school and all its drama but I don’t feel like I’m ready to move out all on my own- probably because I’ve been babied all of my life and I don’t know how to do anything. I wouldn’t blame my parents because it’s also my responsibility to show some interest in learning. I love the idea of moving out and living on my own but I also have to take into consideration that I have to learn how to look out for myself that would includes cooking and washing clothes, and cleaning. I don’t see that as much of a problem, but I don’t know how I will do all on my own with no relatives around me to rely on.


I’m planning to attend a college in San Antonio or Austin. I hope I can make it out there and not return home before I complete my degree. I also don’t feel very enthusiastic about prom or our graduation ceremony but it’s probably because I feel like I have no true friends here. I will probably never talk to my classmates once I graduate, so I don’t see why I’d make a big deal about such things. I’m not planning to attend prom even though others may argue it’s a once in a life time opportunity. I don’t really like to focus on the small things; I’m just ready to move on and start fresh. I feel like there’s too much responsibility on me and I really hope I don’t screw up. I’m beyond ready for change.

Despite everything, I feel pretty accomplished even though high school is just a must, nothing extraordinary. I feel like I’ve grown as a person and learned so much about myself. I’m pretty content with where I stand right now in life even though I know that college is going to be stressful I wouldn’t have it any other way.
