I say hello to the second half of high school and the beginning of my quest for the "right college".
I say hello to my 16th birthday and (hopefully) my driver's license.
I say hello to AP class work and a new fount of knowledge to conquer.
I say hello to new found interests I haven't fully developed yet and hobbies I will grow to love.
I say hello the friendships and relationships I have not yet had.
I say hello the possibilities that the unknown holds.
I wish I could end this poem here, but I would be lying if I said that the closing of this school year did not bring with it an onslaught of goodbyes.
To the seniors know that you will forever be ingrained in my heart and mind and that you will be missed. I wish you all the luck in the world, because I know that each and every one of you have the power to change the world.
To the sophomores who say hello to a new high school this coming year I say goodbye. I will miss the laughs and inside jokes we had, but hold onto the hope that we will still stay in touch.
To some of my favorite Germans I wish I could keep you here with me forever. Clara you're going to change the world one assist a a time, and Kim don't forget to keep me updated...we gotta keep our streak going. I can't wait til we are reunited again, but until that time bis später!
Today I say goodbye to one of my favorite teachers.
Kettles, Mr. K, Kettlewell you were one of the first teachers I grew to love at TA and I will honestly miss seeing you walk the hallways.
Today I say goodbye to the headmaster who believed in me and the man who helped make my dream of going to TA a reality. I still can't believe that the last day of school has crept up on us this quickly! Thank you for your role in helping me to become the woman I am today.
Today I say goodbye to a counselor who's wisdom and encouragement propelled me past many of the challenges I faced this year. To you I say thank you.
Today I say goodbye to the relationships that withered and to the ones that died.
I can't believe that this chapter has come to a close, but I truly can't wait to see the memories that will be written junior year.
