So I left sixth form yesterday. (23rd May). For a while now i’ve felt like I was ready and excited too move on. Meet new people, have new experiences. Until that day came around. I realised, that although I thought I was sick of the faces and sick of education, I wasn’t. When parents tell you that school is the best time of your life, they aren’t lying. Looking back,it genuinely was. 13 Years I’ve been in education and now it’s all finished and I wish I hadn’t taken it for granted.
The matter of the fact is; enjoy it while you can. All the arguments you have with your friends, don’t really matter,because the truth is when you leave, you probably would of already made a new set of friends.
I don’t really like regretting things because I’m a firm believe that, ‘everything happens for a reason’ but I genuinely wish I put more effort into my school work. Instead of trying to be apart of that “in crowd”. None of that matters, put yourself first, friends will fall into place and accept you for who you are. Do what you love to do and the rest will come naturally.
I made a lot of big changes this year to make me happy. It was daunting at first, I thought I’d loose friends and regret everything. But looking back it has made me happier.
Back to friday; It honestly was a highly emotional day, there was plenty of tears, but lots of laughs too! Saying goodbye to teachers was quite hard too – believe it or not!
Make the most of each day. Try not to think about the future too much, we’re still young. Work hard,play hard. Live in the present 🙂
