Hi guys! I know, I know… It’s been a while. Too long, perhaps. But here I am, I’m back! 🙂
I did it, everyone… I graduated high school! I never thought I would see the day where I could finally toss my cap in the air and run to my friends with open arms adorned in what could possibly be the most unflattering outfits ever, but it happened. I made it through high school..barely. 😉
And now that it’s all over, I can honestly say that every moment was entirely worth it- From the frustrating nights where I was buried in make up work due to my POTs induced absences, to the cheerful moments where I would feel great and invincible.
My high school experience was completely unique compared to the average student’s. While most teenagers were worrying about finding a ride to the party on saturday night, or if Jane was mad at them, I was faced with the struggle of hoping that I wouldn’t pass out when there was a fire drill, or worrying that at any moment I would lose feeling in my limbs or throw up. But no matter the circumstances I went through, I made it. I succeeded despite the obstacles thrown in my path, and because of my “unique high school experience”, I believe that I am even prouder of myself than I would have been if I hadn’t overcome such difficulties.
I’ve grown so much these last four years -physically, emotionally, academically, and mentally- and it’s safe to say that I have grown for the better. Looking back to where I was just a year ago makes me realize how much better of a place I am in right now. And boy am I thankful for that.
