The time to say goodbye to all of the memories is here. The emotional roller coaster has come to a stop. All of the sad and happy remembrances will forever carry on with me for the rest of my life.

Freshman year was probably the craziest year of the four. New faces and a whole different view of life came before me. I met a lot of people in the process; some of these friendships still stand strong, while some have faded. Then the event that changed me more than just emotionally and physically took over me that year.

I got hit in the eye during school’s soccer practice; it was the scariest thing ever. The doctor told me the vision in my right eye was almost lost. I don’t think I could ever go through such pain ever again. The suffering and sadness was at its max that year. I didn’t think I could ever escape that feeling. It took two surgeries to bring my eye back to somewhat normal. I finally escaped the hell that was holding me down.

The following year improved. I got to enjoy everything I couldn’t during my eye recovery. I was finally able to play soccer and do physical activities for the first time after six long months. It was such an improvement from freshman year, plus I got to meet the girl who stole my heart. Who would’ve thought I would still be with her to this date.

Junior year had to be up there as one of the best as well. It meant finally attending the main campus and brought back the process of meeting new faces all over again. I finally got to see friends I hadn’t seen since middle school. Spirit days were new to me, but the pep rallies were what I looked forward to. I enjoyed going to homecoming and prom with my girlfriend but my wallet didn’t.

Life slowly started feeling a little more adultlike. Responsibilities began to come into play. I got my first car and a new job. The feeling that I had everything I needed in life including money, a car and even my beautiful girlfriend was the best.

This school year I had eye surgery again, but it wasn’t going to stop me from doing what I wanted. It was brutal being stuck in bed for an entire week right after surgery. I also got into my first car accident, which isn’t the greatest memory.

Now we are here as seniors with less than three weeks to go and the feeling is surreal. The year itself was enjoyable but stressful at the same time. Despite all the struggles, I’ve still tried to find the best of it. I’m just trying to finish the school year strong with my girlfriend next to me and a diploma in my hand.

High school has taught me a lot. All I know now is nothing can stop me. Through thick and thin I’ll always find a way to get the best of it. All of these memories will stick with me for the rest of my life.
