Transitioning from high school to college has many hardships; however, my most difficult struggle is mentally realizing that I am now an actual college student who cannot have any faults. Back in high school, I was able to study lightheartedly because there was no money involved, and second chances were offered on assessments. In present time, I have to do well on an exam the first time it is given with the mindset of fulfilling the expectations of my scholarship donors and others. Since I am not the biggest fan of my major, I miss the high school version of Heather who was able to dream and imagine where she would be after graduating. My distress is realizing that the people I shared my interests to have gained and is out accomplishing them

They say that high school is not necessarily the best four years of your life, and I agree. However, I believe that it is a place for unique growth and development–both of which are factors in finding the best in ourselves. With all of this said, I can say that entering Miriam College High School has definitely and ultimately transformed me to become the intellectually and spiritually focused woman I am today.

It was September 21 which meant the short but crazy intense period known as Homecoming season had begun at Lawrence E. Elkins High School. The air was thick with talk of potential dates, potential ways of asking, and potential ways of transportation. I personally thought the whole thing was overrated and overhyped but I was actually buying in this year as I was a senior and this would be final opportunity to be a part of the Homecoming craze and I would go all in I wanted to take part in as many social activities as I could my senior year so I figured Homecoming would be a really good start. I had a circle of guy friends that I hung around regularly consisting of Astle, Reen, Eric, Cole, Michael, and Joel and when we started talked about Homecoming,
Some people view a glass of water half empty, while other view the glass as half full. Some people tend to think that a viral internet dress was black and blue, while other thought it was white and gold. Some people are naturally born pessimists, while others are naturally born optimists.

Have you ever had to have leave everything you know behind and move to a far off distant planet? Well, me neither, but I had to do the next best thing. I had to move from the town where I had lived my entire life. The experience of having to move from where I had always lived, Tahlequah, and go to Broken Arrow changed my life forever and I will never forget it. While looking back on it now even though I was extremely nervous then, I wouldn’t change anything about what I experienced or the people I met.
After my 8th grade graduation, me and my family moved to Georgia. A fresh start is what we wanted. It was a very long drive. Everyone were fussing because they were hungry. My granny was saying how it 's this waffle place she wants to take us.
If you were to ask me what my dreams were before high school, I would have told you it was to simply be happy. Before high school I had such a simple life and could only think the endless possibilities I had waiting for me in the future, but now that time has come and everything is becoming a reality. All throughout life obstacles will be placed in your path, but it was not until now I realized that they are not put there to hurt you, but to make you stronger. A while ago, my mom had been married to a man named Martin, who happened to be the father of my two youngest sisters, Wanjiru and Wanjugu.
Boom Senior year has only yet to begin. Senior year is finally here! Everyone has lived for the moment of starting and ending senior year. It’s the last year we have the opportunity to be with everyone and the last year to live as children before real adulthood comes. At the beginning of the school year I knew this was my year to live my life to the fullest… then BOOM!
My entire life has been me looking forward. Always looking forward and rarely looking back. Learning from past occurrences and planning the next; I have been a sure handed planner all my life. When I was younger my maturity of very advanced for my age, therefore I only had a select few friends. This helped me keep a level head and remain focused.
When I peer my eyes open it takes a second for me to realize that today is the day. Today's the day I finally graduate college, the last day I'm at Stony Brook University. As I sit on my queen size bed, in a house I rented with my friend off campus, I ponder on what has happened, on what I learned and what I achieved this last four years. As I scanned the place I called home for 3 years I can't help but feel bittersweet that I am finally leaving it.
