I have been waiting during my entire high-school life to finally reach the senior year. For me, being here is in itself a big accomplishment. Something that I have always wished is to receive the senior class hoody. We started to design it at the beginning of junior year, looked forward to receiving it since then, and last week, the day finally arrived. How can I describe what my senior classmates and I felt when we received it? Perhaps the best way to say it is “rewarding”. It was rewarding because we felt that our life in high school has reached its upper stage, and that we are being recognized on our merits demonstrated during our previous five years at school.It was nostalgic at the time, though. The hoody is more than just a piece of clothing; it is the start of a new phase of our lives. In ten months, we will graduate and leave. We are going to take a great leap into the future. So to have something that reminds us about high school is just something really emotional for most of us. To completely describe what we felt is hard, but the only thing that I can say for certain is that it was very special for all of us, and we couldn’t be happier!!
