The first time I cried the whole day was when I saw Signora Desorrento. I truly love her, she is like a big sister to me. I never loved a teacher like family, and she truly is an inspiration to me.
When we were FINALLY seated and the orchestra started to play, I cried the hardest I cried the whole day. They sounded so beautiful and I was a little sad that I was not with them playing. I never heard them play as an outsider. It is gonna take some time to sink in.
When my name was called, I could not hear a thing. I was speechless. When I saw Mr. Orwick in the front of the line it finally hit me. I shook everyone’s hand, blew a kiss to the orchestra, and walked off the stage. A whole sea of emotions came towards me.
When I was reunited with my friends and family after the ceremony, I was so happy. But I felt different. Even though high school was a pain in the ass, I will truly miss it. However, I look towards my future with all of the hope in the world. I cannot wait to BEGIN my life. And I’m not afraid of losing anyone because the people God wants me to stay in touch with will stay in touch.
Class of 2012, we actually did it.
