Being a senior to me means more that just one thing. It means my last ten football games, senior project and, graduating. It seems like yesterday that I was in eighth grade watching my brother play football on the same field I am now. Back then being a senior in high school seemed so far away that I never took the time to think about it or anything. Now that it’s here I wonder where the time went. When I look back I remember that ninety percent of my life in high school was dedicated to football.
All I thought about as a freshman was working hard and doing my best so that I could be moved up to varsity. Now that time is here and I can’t believe how fast the time went. There are only ten games left and then my high school football career is over. After the season is over the rest of the year is dedicated to homework and senior project. It seems like just the other day that my brother was making me sit and listen to his boring speech about god knows what for his senior project. Now it is my turn to do the senior project and make him sit and listen to me go on and on about a whole bunch of nothing.
The project seems scary but I know that staying on track and doing things on time or ahead of time will make the whole project go a lot more smoothly. Completing the senior project will also make graduating easier too. Talking about my last football games and the senior project makes me think about graduating and leaving La Serna. Lots of people do not want to graduate and move on because they don’t know what is ahead of them.
I have been fortunate enough to have three older siblings that have all graduated and moved on in life. I have seen what happens after high school and it is not scary at all. Senior year can mean many things to everyone, but to me it is about my last ten football games, senior project and, graduating. Those are the three things I see when someone asks me about being a senior.
There are other things that go through my mind of course, but none of them matter to me as much as those three things do. When I look back on my senior year of high school I want to know I did my best and tried my hardest at everything I did.
