That in three weeks I am done with my last year of high school.
where in the world did all the time go?!

Does time always fly this fast?

For the first time I'm actually afraid of what comes after I graduate.

You know how they say time gets faster and faster as you get older? Yeah. It's true. I think in terms of months now. Like, "October isn't that far away." And I'm only 27. I'm sorta dreading the time when I realize I'm thinking in years. Or decades!

The weird thing is to think back to when THREE HOURS or TOMORROW seemed like FOREVER.

The things that happen after high school are much better than the things that happened during high school. Don't fear them. Look forward to them.

High school is the low point of life.

It gets better! WAY BETTER!!!!!

Don't be afraid, it's all uphill from here ;)
Before you know it, the jocks who bullied everyone will be working in gas stations and the geeks are making millions running their own empires. The uncool losers find their feet and become the cool people, and the cool people are suddenly superficial and pathetic.

But then, that's just my experience...

Nope. It just gets exponentially faster.

Don't fear the future. It will hold-- just as the past did-- good and bad moments and memories.

Enjoy yourself, with one eye on the future.

I can't believe that in three weeks I'll be done with middle school. Next year is high school!


Don't worry about it, life after high school sounds fun! I'm jealous!

My 40 year high school reunion was on Saturday. It cost $150. I wonder what it will cost you in 40 years!! (I didn't go, there's no one I wanted to see for $150!)

The only thing worse than High School is Junior High School. Congrats on getting sprung.

Well, as someone who graduated college two years ago, I can safely say....

absolutely nothing comes after graduation. You get some bills, look for a job, and that's it.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Just wait until you see how fast the next 10 years fly by. I could have sworn my high school graduation was just last week, but my 10 year reunion is in August. *scream*

It gets faster. Much faster. But why be afraid? Your life doesn't start after you graduate- you've been living your life since you were born (in your case, since 1990?..... *head smacks on the table*). Once you realise that, it won't be quite so daunting.

Time does fly faster the older you get! But people are embracing 'older' now, and rightly so. No worries about age :)

Except for me, it looks like I'll need to buy new knees before the end of it all! Take care of your knees. No, really. They never tell you that.

Time goes by WAY too fast the older you get. I'm only twenty-three and already they're planning our ten-year high school reunion. I'm not ready, yet! I haven't even done anything interesting with my life. I need more time!

Oh, so very, very true. My daughter: classic HS geek. Ate lunch alone. My heart ached for her. Now, I am proud to say that she is graduating college in two weeks with HIGH HONORS from a top ten college. She has been accepted into an intership in DC this fall, then, after that, onto Japan, where she will be teaching English in an English immesion program for Japanese children.

The 'popular' kids? Still slinking around hometown. Or pregnant. Or both.

Revenge is best served cold, afterall, and the best years truly, truly are ahead of you, kiddo! Enjoy and congratulations.

I had a teacher who said time goes faster because it's a smaller percentage of your life.

When you're 4, another year is a quarter of your life - 25%. That's HUGE. That's FOREVER. Time goes sloooooow.

When you're 30, another year is a thirtieth of your life - just over 3%. That's NOTHING. That's two seconds. Time goes so fast.


And don't believe, by some general rule, things are going to get better or worse. They are what you make them. College can be amazing for some, and is the death of others. It is what you make it. So make it good.

Thanks guys :)

Are college guys more mature?? (I doubt it.)
And seriously at what age do guys pull up there pants and wear a damn belt so I can't see their boxers?! Cause the two boys I was was involved with/dated were 20/21 and 21/22. and they wear their pants where they belong. So at what age does that happen at?! lol

I am really excited to finally be at college.
I'm pretty sure I promised Ray to take tons of pictures (a first for me haha) so if you're friends with me on facebook, you'll get to see them :)

Oh jeez Prom is so close!!!! I can't wait :D

To echo those above, time flies faster after high school. Right now, it seems to fly at light speed. I think life gets tougher because YOU are responsible for what happens and there are no excuses. But I also think it gets better. I wouldn't go back to high school for anything.

Collectively, I think college guys are more mature, but like any place, you'll find immaturity. Just set your sights high when it comes to looking for male companionship.

Enjoy what's left of your high school time.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought Id something more to say

Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

My hubby just turned 30 and I'm still waiting for him to mature!

And a friend of ours wore his pants around his knees at his wedding aged 25:D

College is nothing like high school. It's waaaaaay better. For one thing, you're taking classes that you choose (for the most part--there are requirements, but lots of ways to meet them).

For another, the people who are in college are there because they chose to be. It's not forced education like primary and secondary school.

Also, you're not spoon fed or forced in college. You either learn it or you don't. You're responsible for your education, for studying and for making deadlines.

I started college while I was a Junior in High School and barely attended HS my senior year--my college credits counted toward my HS graduation. If they'd paid me to go back and take classes at high school, I wouldn't have done it.

So enjoy your college years. They were my best years of education.

SOME are. The rest of them are just happy to be able to engage in "going to college," which is, largely, just a campus-wide mating ritual without parents to cramp styles hormones.

Do yourself a favor and avoid the undergraduates. Grab yourself a postdoc.

I am excited/scared all at the same time.
While I want to leave this place, this school so badly, I'm afraid to leave the friends I've made and love.
I have 13 more days that I have to get up and go to school for.
It still feels unreal.

When I think back thirty-two years to my last year at high school, it seems both forever ago, and also parts of it seem like yesterday. I hope the next thirty years take forever.
