For everybody else, it’s just a normal Tuesday. A lot of people are helping and praying for the people in Oklahoma. A lot of people and kids are in classes and at work. It’s just like every other day, right? Well, it is the last bit of the month, which means there are a lot of graduations being held. When I was a senior, the last few days of the semester were very chaotic and not much different from my sister’s last few days. Except when I was a senior, we didn’t have our finals on those last three days. The last day was made for the seniors to clean out lockers and teachers to pick up books. I mostly spent those three days in the library. Since the teachers cared less about their students and pretty much let go as crazy as they wanted. In certain classes, it was a good thing to have computers. Bubble Shooter was our #1 game that I saw on every screen since I had the pleasure of sitting in the back. I did look at my emails and work on my first blog back then. I think I had like three classes that had computers in them and I think as the days went on, I started bringing in my mom’s old magazines because we had to return all books that we checked out of the library. It was very sad I’ve got to say.
The last day though, it was filled with parties in certain classes. One of my classes, I had it first period and the only reason why we had to leave five minutes of that class is because it was downstairs and God knows if you were going to get caught in the elevator or not. Thankfully in those last days, I didn’t get caught in it. In that class, our teacher told us that he had a VCR player instead of a DVD player. So he and another student brought in old classic Disney movies like The Lion King and The Jungle Book. We also did tie dye shirts too. I was sick that day and he kept everything the next day when I came in and I got to do my shirt. It turned out pretty cute too! One of the last memories happened on the actual last day. It was after lunch because my aide was eating lunch. We were in the library and I was “looking” for another book to read to kill time. They’re was a few students in there. They were playing UNO and one of the girls looked like she had been crying all day long. At that time, I hadn’t cried at all. I was actually waiting on when I would see tears coming out of my eyes. I went over to talk to them and watch them play a couple of rounds of UNO. They were three girls and two guys. The guys looked puzzled by us and showing our emotions because it wasn’t long until after I pulled up to their table that the one who was crying, she started telling stories around the time in Elementary school. It was really sad, even though I have no idea what we were talking about back then. She started making us cry our eyes out. The librarian came over with a box of tissues for us and the guys kind of gave up on us and went on the computers. I didn’t blame them and neither did the librarian. You can’t help it sometimes, it just comes out.
This morning I woke up an hour earlier than normally, my sister was still getting ready for her last day. I sent her a small text before she left saying “Have a good last day of high school. You will be cleaning out your last locker ever. Tears will be expected. Probably around lunch time when you sit with your group for the very last time. You’ll get a lot of hugs today too. Enjoy it though.” She texted me back with, “Thanks for the warning.” I wish I had gotten a warning for my last day, having my mom practically when I went on my last ride bus ride to school. It is very surreal, because you are so into routine. I’ve to got to say though, you’re still in routine for Wednesday, because of Senior Trip. On Thursday, you got to sleep in a little before awards ceremony. Friday, graduation didn’t start until late afternoon, so sleeping in was a go! I don’t think anybody really sleeps in though. You’re too excited to sleep. I don’t think the guys had any trouble there. So that’s my lovely story for the day. Oh, I also wrote the little poem in the picture too!
