As senior year dwindles down, we begin to wonder if the 13 years actually paid off. From learning to color in the lines to placing sounds with words on a page to writing 14 page research papers in AP Lit, we have all come a LONG way, but we still are yet to finish. We are closer than ever to reaching that golden line where we celebrate these 13 years of our lives that changed us from diapers to buying lotto tickets. Believe it or not, not too long ago we were learning how to add 2+2 and now we are learning how to find the derivative of the function f(x)= 3x^7/21)-9x^3+21 or the area under the curve while using integrals. We have our whole lives ahead of us from paying our first taxes to retiring and living our lives on a beach somewhere. We have an opportunity to be someone, to thrive and to grow. To make mistakes and regret things. In less than 3 months we are free. Most of us will go to college to learn more from becoming doctors or nurses to teachers or accountants. We get to choose who we want to be and how we will turn out. Others will choose to get a kick start to adulthood and get a job. You have a choice to make. We’re on the last stretch with less than 30 days left of school.  In the words of Steve Jobs, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
