I haven’t posted here in weeks, because we were on vacation — I’ll probably post all the crappy selfies I made in Japan in a later entry. But for now, let’s blow the cobwebs off this blog with a set of Friday Five questions.
1. Did you enjoy your senior year of high school?
Yes, I did. My sister moved out of the house to go to university in a different city, and that meant she had to quit the horse-riding. We were sharing riding privileges on that horse, but since I couldn’t do that all alone and also prepare for my exams, I quit too. I kinda missed it, but it did free up a lot of my time so I could hang with friends. And I was ready to move on to other things, so I concerned myself with drama even less than usual.
2. Did you have a senior trip (high school) and were you able to go on it.
Yes, we went to London in the fifth year. There was another group going to Rome, and I had just transferred out of that group. They were prepared to make an exception for me and allow me to go to Rome, but I actually preferred London. It was a lot of fun, and we got to see Les Miserables and Cats.
3. Was graduating (from either high school or college/university) a big thing with your family or just another day?
It was a given that we would graduate. My parents were proud, but the ‘ceremonies’ were much more student-focused and I don’t even think there was a formal ‘thing’ where parents were expected to attend. So it wasn’t exactly ‘just another day’, but it wasn’t an earth-shattering occurrence either.
4. What were you looking forward to the most after graduating from either high school or college/university?
When I graduated from high school, I was ready to move on to university. I had a room lined up, together with a friend, and we were going to study computer science, which I was looking forward to.
5. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your graduating self?
That’s a good question. In the end, it all worked out quite well, so I don’t know if there’s something I’d give advice about to do something different.
