I cannot believe how it is half way through March. Senior Projects are “due” on March 21st, Prom Night April 22nd, then finally graduation on June 10th. It’s crazy to think that all of this is happening. I remember last year listening to all the seniors talk about how it goes by super fast and how you wish you can relive certain moments. I would listen to them, and in my head, I’d be like, “Yeah, yeah, I bet.” No more Friday night football games; no more screaming your lungs out at basketball games. Just typing this and thinking about how I’m never going to relive and get back those moments, and be part of that student section is sad and bittersweet at the same time.
Senior year you realize what’s important. You realize that having a few best friends is better than having a lot of casual friends. You realize that you have to cherish every moment good or bad. Lastly, you realize that doing what you enjoy and not caring about what others think about you will truly bring out the best you.

TRADITION UNITES US.
Ah April, sweet SWEET April. The month that brings flowers blooming, heat rising, and important date countdowns also causes a ton of stress. The fact that seniors have to get their plans all sorted out about what college they are going to attend in the fall plus finish completing their Senior Projects AND – of course – pick out the perfect dress or suit for Prom Night. Too many events too handle in such a short period of time.
Let’s start off by talking about our Senior Project. I mean, for all those out there who are procrastinators, you guys might want to get on that; they are due TODAY…in one hour.
College. Oh my! Honestly, in my case, it’s one of the hardest things to actually pick an option, but there might be more than a handful of you all who already know what their later years will look like. Others have to wait to see how much financial aid you will be allotted from colleges of their choice, or simply making the BEST choice for yourself and your career.
Prom shopping on the other hand involves patience, LOTS of it, as well as having appointments reserved for us ladies and time with creativity for all guys to think of a way to ask their special company for this unforgettable night.
