As I celebrate my high school graduation with friends and family today, I can’t help but feel so happy and loved and supported. And of course, SO HAPPY TO BE DONE! WAHOO!
My school held our ceremony at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado which was a pretty cool venue considering that some pretty famous music groups and artists have performed there including Lorde and Bastille. It was kind of chilly yesterday morning, but nothing we Coloradans aren’t used to. I had to be at the 1st Bank Center much earlier than most of the soon-to-be graduates because I got to speak at graduation. As one of the student council co-presidents I had the honor of starting graduation off and giving the big welcome speech. From what I heard afterward, my speech went well and I didn’t trip or fall going up to the podium or walking back from it, so yay!
The ceremony was very nice and when we finally got to chuck those caps in the air it finally set in that I was done with high school. High school was so much fun and I met some truly amazing people who I’m happy to call friends. 🙂 The rest of the day was spent with family and we ate way too much food, but it’s all good. It was totally worth it.
It was no easy feat to go through 13 years of schooling. From my small charter school to the gigantic public high school (well at least it seemed that way as a freshman) I just graduated from, I put in many, many hours to get to where I am today. I remember my first day of kindergarten and being left with my giant box of school supplies. We immediately started coloring and getting to know one another. I also remember my last day of high school at our goodbye ceremony we call Eagle Flight. As I walked down the lines of teachers I hugged some, said thank you one last time, and definitely cried. I’m going to miss the fun-loving, amazing people that teach and work at BHS. They helped make my high school experience the great experience it was. I am so proud to be a Broomfield Eagle and so glad for the many wonderful opportunities and experiences Broomfield High School has given to me. It is truly a special place.
I have to leave pretty soon here to go get ready for my graduation party, so I’m going to have to end this blog here. To those of you that also graduated yesterday or earlier on this month, congrats! And to those of you still waiting for that glorious day, you’re so so so close. Congrats to you as well. Just in general, congratulations class of 2018! We made it!
