That’s it !
I have officially graduated from high school ! And with honour !
Right after the results, my classmates and I had a little party at school with our teachers to celebrate our graduation. The atmosphere was awesome. Everyone was happy, smiling, chatting with each other, and the weather was perfect, as if it was congratulating us.
We took pictures and drank soda in the light shade of the trees.
Then it was time to say goodbye to the school. I’ll go back next year, to meet my old classmates again and have a meal together, but today felt like the end of an era. Seven years have passed, and so many memories have been made. I cried, I stressed, I cursed this school, but I also smiled and laughed and stayed extra hours with my friends joking around.
Seven years ago I stepped into the courtyard, shy and anxious. Today I stepped out, leaving a place that saw me grow and change to what I am now.
But as one of my teachers stated, this is not the end of an era, but the beginning of the rest of our lives. And despite my doubts and my desperate need of holidays, I am full of hope for the years to come.
Good bye school,
and hello summer !
