Today was a pretty good day. Marching band was tiring, but that’s nothing new. I did get to have a conversation with all four principals today and that was pretty pleasant. I talked to Dr. Pike about prom. I know it’s a while from now, but I have no idea what I’m going to do with my hair. It’s not long enough to do something extra fancy, so I might just try to grow it out and see what happens. I still can’t believe that I’m talking about prom. I know that Dr. Pike is excited for it, but it’s her first prom as a principal, so I don’t blame her. I think she might be more excited about my senior year than I am. Everything is happening so quickly and I haven’t had time to catch my breath. I’m so happy that I’m finally a senior but I don’t understand how these 3 years went by so fast. When I was a freshman I would hope and pray for my senior year to get here and now that it’s here I’m completely shocked. I don’t know if I’m ready for my last homecoming weekend, my last marching/football season, my last band banquet, or the senior concert. I’m extremely excited to head off to college, but I don’t know if I’m ready to leave my hometown of St. Louis. I love this city so much and all of the people I’m close to. I know that going away for college is the best thing to do, but it’s going to be a bittersweet goodbye.
