It's Been A Good Run.

Finished. And it has been good - great, even. And it is done.

Our graduation ceremony was Friday, and our dry grad was Friday night/Saturday morning. Too many words for it all. I wish we had a week to experience what we did in one night. So much excitement. So much to take in.

Our parents spoiled us to death. The prizes alone for this event must have cost a fortune. And the decorations, the games, the entertainment. Mind blowing.

I am so thankful for everything that has brought me to this point. Somehow all the stress, the tears, the late nights wondering if I was going to finish everything on time fade from my mind and all there is, is the amazing moments. The ones that I will hold on to forever. Even through the longest ceremony of all time, where we had to go through every one of us graduates, it was still beautiful and wonderful.
I don't know if I will be able to ever fully appreciate everything our parents, our teachers, and my fellow grads did to make this all happen, but I do know I am so very thankful they did it all.

I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all. These last few weeks have been ones to remember. From the grad tie dying, to the grad party I helped organize, to the cap and gown ceremony, to the amazing, fantastic, unbelievable dry grad, it has been unforgettable.

These last 12 years in high school have been well worth this. And now I am ready - for the moment at least - to face the "real world" and go onto what lies ahead.

Hopefully I will have a clearer mind later to express in more detail some of the past events. Right now, thank you, to everyone who has helped me along the way. I have so much gratitude, and I hope that the way I live my life will be an expression of that gratitude.
