Brianna Coleman Mrs. Backelant Sr. Hon. Language Arts 13 March 2009 At Last, I’m a Senior
Time sure does fly by awfully rapid. I can remember when I was still in kindergarten; drinking orange juice and cookies, playing at recess, nap time, having your own little cubby hole, bringing your toys in for show and tell, playing heads up seven up when it’s raining outside, making arts and crafts to take home to your parents, playing four square and red light green light with my neighborhood friends, and more. Then I realized the moment I’ve been waiting for has arrived. All the pain, agony, struggling, and time I’ve wasted away in my life is about to pay off. It was the beginning of my senior year in high school. Life was taking on a whole new shape. One more year to go and I’ll be out of here. Your senior year so much is going on, and inside yourself you feel this warm sensation because you realize that you’re at the top of the hill. With this new feeling of life I told myself that I was going to do every senior activity and anything else I could do to make it the best year of school I would ever have. My senior year started out good due to football. Our football team had a little reputation to keep; we would either be horrible or great; never in between. Following in the footsteps of previous years, we lost our first couple of games. When it came to the chief game of the year: Dacula vs. Mill Creek, we managed to pull it out and beat them! This game was definitely the highlight of the football season of my senior year.
