When I first entered Bolsa Grande, I thought my senior year would be horrible without any familiar faces, all I wanted was this year to end quickly so I can move on with my life, but now I see faces that I literally want to go up to, to hug and kiss and I don’t want to leave just yet.
A month ago, while looking through the school planner I saw the date June 4th and underneath it was Senior Awards Night, I drew a little sad face next to it because I wasn’t suspecting any invitation, well unbeknownst 2 weeks ago I received an invitation. I was astonished, why would they invite a first year student to an award that actually rivals the Coronet Awards at FVHS? I was actually scared that I wouldn’t get an award so I never told me parents about it.
Well, I just got back for Senior Awards Night and I won the award from Home Economics, which was also a humongous shocker to me. It’s amazing how you enter the school year feeling as if you were at the bottom of the totem pole and end it near the top. I really have give thanks to all my friends (whether new or old), teachers, counselors, and especially my parents for helping me get back on my feet and get back on the right track. I’m actually quite sadden by the fact that my mother was unable to attend today, everything she has gone through from the emotional roller coaster of last year and my hard headed stubbornness, she would have been so happy to see all that grinding of the teeth for 17 straight years was in some aspects worth it, for now… Sad mistake, but she’ll see the award tonight once she gets home from work tonight.
Still, I simply cannot say thank you enough to Bolsa Grande, my last year of public education has been the most memorable and by far the greatest year ever, by far from what I have in mind at the beginning of the school year. It’s the people here that make this school AMAZING.
