If you ask anyone who knows me, they’ll all tell you that I always have an opinion, and am always willing to express it. So, here is my opinion of high school. My past four years in high school have been amazing. As a senior I have got to say that I am really sad to be graduating, but I know the memories I have made will stay with me forever. Whether it was turning the tailgate of a friend’s truck into a pool, watching the sun come up after decal night, or always having teachers telling me and Logan Little to be safe on the weekends, I know I loved every minute of it. I’m not saying I got everything right, but we all learn from our mistakes. I guess I have learned a lot in that case, but that is beside the point. There are not many moments that I would say went to waste. I can remember my sister telling me at the beginning of freshman year, “live up every minute of high school, and live with no regrets.” It makes me smile now to be able to look back and know I truly took that advice to heart. A wise man once said, “There is no such thing as regrets, because at the time it is what you truly wanted.” Now I know this does not apply to everything, but I find it to be very true. Because of this, I would have to say the one piece of advice I would give before I graduate would be to live with no regrets, and to have a blast. These four years will be some of the best years of your life, so make sure to live them up. Stay up late, even if you have homework. Go to football games and ring a cowbell. Soak up every minute you have here. In the words of my older brother, “high school is not just about four years of school, but how many memories you can pack into those four years.” I can’t wait to be able to look back on the memories I have at Oak Grove when I get older, and I hope all of you can say the same. In the words of Dave Matthews, “for life is short but sweet for certain.” This is true, life is short, and high school is even shorter. I can say that I lived my short time here to the fullest, though. The real question now is, will you?
