Omggg, it’s slowly coming to me that i’m graduating! Ugh, well it hit me a long time ago, in fact multiple times, but i just never thought deeply about it. Well i have, but not to the point i realize it’s REAL. Like, this is REAL, it’s happening!? All those movies and shows of our favorite characters graduating..it’s happening to me now, like damn where did time go!? Anyways, i’m not gonna make this blog hella long like the last time. But yeah, i’m coming to that realization that it’s all ending soon, and ima be at college before i know it.
Ok, i mightus well add a story, aha. It’s funny cause honestly when I was in what, middle school? maybe even Elementary school, at times whem i felt lonely I would think like “I’m gonna be going to college in the future anyways, why should anything going on right now matter.” Boy was I naive as fuhhhh. Everything from that point on has made such an impact on me to become who i am today. Seriously tho, if you’re reading this and you’re about to enter high school or middle school or whatever, you are going to want to regret the things you wish you could have done. I honestly regret a lot of things but if i had the chance to change them i wouldnt cause i realize i wouldnt be where i am today, even if it is at a higher level. God put me where i am today because His plan for me is where i probably would least expect it. My faith has lead me this far to the point where i’m at a bridge in my life and i need to cross over the river of memories and start off new..well not too new..NEW as in a fresh start in education, not changing as a whole new person cause otherwise that’d be ridiculous, aha. Damn, i ended up making this long…whatever, more for me to look back upon when i visit these blogs a year from now, aha. Anyways, yeah, graduation is just around the corner.. High school in all honesty, was fun/emotional/at times stupid/rewarding/ but overall worth it. For me i wasnt one of those drama-filled people who had problems with hella people, so i had a friggen great time! ahaha. Let’s just see what college has in store for me, :]
Since it’s my last week of officially attending high school, I made a little list of the things i want to do before i leave. I’ll still be in Vallejo over Summer, but after that i’m gonna be out in San Jose for school. Soooo, before i graduate, I’m going to:
Write a thank you letter to all my close teachers throughout my whole high school life.
Try to get all my keychain requests done before i probably never see those people again, ahah
Finish editing my unfinished vlogs, cause there’s HELLA of em i have yet to do,
ok, wtfuh. i had a whole list planned out just earlier but i totally had a brain fart..
ANYWAYS..dang, it bothers me now that i cant remember..Ok, well before i get side tracked, i would like to say that High School was definitely a life changing part of my life. It’s hard to believe that it’s ending soon, and that the next 96 hours will be my last moments as a Senior. Before i know it, i’ll be walking across that stage during graduation, receiving my diploma along with my friends…gahh, my friends… My relationships in high school are probably most of what holds me back from wanted to move on. I know a hand full of friends of mine who will be attending SJSU with me, but none of my close-close friends for they will be almost two to how many hours away from me. Honestly, I think it’s more that just bitter sweet. It’s nice to know that all my hard work has lead to this for me to graduate and attend an awesome college, but when you’re put in a group of students who you’ve probably been with since Kindergarten, and those you meet along the way, it’s really hard to have to see them go. Yeah, some may disagree and i’m probably over thinking this whole situation, but even with keeping in touch with friends far away isn’t gonna be that easy if we’re all out and about with our lives. I just hope that wherever I go, God will help me find my way and meet new people. High school wasn’t meant to last forever; it’s kinda like metamorphosis, the stage where you find out who you are. I guess it’s time to face the fact that this chapter of my life is soon to be over, and i gotta face the fact that i must move on eventually. It was a great run…ugh dammit, i feel like crying. how the hell did i get from making a list to venting about leaving high school!? ahah, oh well. I was actually gonna make this a separate post but it’s all good. Ok, ima head off to bed now before i get my tears all over my laptop, aha.
Well I’m not gonna blog about Grad Nite yet cause I’m getting sleepy at the moment, but shiz, my voice is pretty GONE right now. It’ll probably heal back up a little in the morning, but as of right now I can barely speak from all that yelling, screaming, and chanting, ahah! Ugh, friggen tired as fuhh. Gotta wake up in like 2 hours..Gnight+Dueces. Last day of grad nite today. Headin to Universal Studios, Bouta check out that new Transformers ride, ayee~
My weekend has been a straight up streak of events running on 4 hours of sleep every night. Friday night: PID set up till about 2:30am cause I had to leave early (yes, that was early, ahah). Saturday: my sister’s graduation ceremonies in the city which was from like 7am-4pm, leading up to my evening being at PID, staying till around 2:30am again. Sunday: had to wake up at 6am to head to my sister’s FilAm graduation in the city, then lunch with the family, then another grad ceremony dinner till around 10pm. Monday: woke up around 7:10ish sorta late to get ready for school, ended up ditching my field trip cause of allergies, skipped a little then head back to school. Later in the evening, went to a Kpop concert with my sister down in San Jose. Tomorrow I got a rally going on at school pretty much the whole day since I’m in leadership so i gotta help set up i assume like before, following up the evening with the damn Glee finale which I know i’ma be hella emotional towards, then I still gotta pack cause THE NEXT DAY, GRAD NITE!!! Ayeeee~! I haven’t even packed or prepped at all for it even tho I’ve been talking about it with my friends for hella long up to this moment, Ahahah. But yeah, it never ends, shiz! Ahah, I’m glad tho. Ending my Senior year worth wild/while (whatever that phrase is, aha)
Talking to inanimate objects –i.e. Trash can, Macaroni, Glasses, the Wall
Talkin hella sh*t about each other- “so like I heard Mark be talking hella sh*t about….”
Alfred being the computer virus at the Apple store.

Oh my gosh, these were all in less than 4 days too..ahahaha!
I hated having to have to write an essay the night before; i’m skilled at procrastinating. I know ima need to do that in college, but still, ughhh ahah
This contradicts the other fact before this, but I actually like writing in-class essays the most.
I can’t really think of what i learned at the moment, aha. I guess how to write better essays, thanks to my strict teachers. OH, i learned that the strictest teachers are the best ones who you learn the most from. true fact.
So it turns out I miscounted these day things cause of additional senior days, sooo..
-I loved the AC in the buildings on hot days and no one would complain its too cold.
-I hated having a dead on center of the classroom seat, especially for when I had a nose bleed at the time and everyone can see me..
-I learned to just get things over with, for example when giving a project presentation. Just do it, and have fun doing it.
I actually liked having one of my classes be all the way across campus. I got to see my friends in the hallways that i didn’t have a class with, and that’d basically be one of the only times i see them during the day.
I hated having to walk across campus in the rain. Especially when it would be hella windy and hailing, while i’m holding my binder and having a small umbrella, I was soaked by the time i got to class.
I learned to only carry the necessities…Paper, binder, pencils, pens, sharpies, hand sanitizer, allergy medicine, water, 8-pack highlighters, eso chapstick, agenda, FOOD, emergency snacks, sunglasses, wallet, vlog camera, scissors, napkins, calculator, glasses case, notecards, more food, occasionally books, headphones, eyedrops, extra eyedrops, and sometimes glue.
