Reality hit as the clock struck midnight and December 31st, 2019 became January 1st, 2020. My four years at PVMHS which started what seems like so shortly ago are starting to come to a close. I never realized how much I could grow in such a short span of time. I cannot thank the people I’ve met that have stuck with me along the way and the teachers I’ve had enough. The lessons I’ve learned throughout the past three and a half years here have shaped me into the person I am today. Although May is still five months away, it’ll end up feeling like no time. Anticipation to hear back from the rest of the colleges I applied to is unreal, and I’ve never been so impatient in my life. I then have to make this life-changing decision once I hear back from them all and compare. After graduation June 5th and this upcoming summer, I head off to the college I decide on to start the next four-year chapter of my life. What happens next?
