Honking horns around the lake, the chicken (or rooster as I see it) “stolen” and hoisted atop the high school or some other well-known location in Lake Stevens, grad parties and promising friends you’ll keep in touch, are all a part of a long, fun and often arduous journey.
However, the best part of graduating from high school is the unknown. What will happen now? What will I be doing in five, 10 or even 20 years from now? The world is truly a graduate’s oyster. No one knows what will become of him or her once they leave the beloved halls of high school but anything is possible.
College is a definite choice for many, leaving home and spreading one’s wings has to be a top priority for most. Others want to live at home, attend a local school and save money, while still others will find jobs or travel. What an amazing time for these young adults. So many choices available to them and so much to look forward to. Most of us wouldn’t choose to return to high school but many of us would like to step back and have the world open its doors to us once again. Maybe make a different choice somewhere along the road or try something new that we may be too old to try now.
Imagine the possibilities! To all of you Lake Stevens High School, Homelink and PROVE graduates – here’s to you and your futures! May you prosper, continue to learn and be happy.
