Well, this is it.

This is my last post of the year.

I really do not know what to think of high school. It certainly had its ups and it certainly had its downs. However, it was fun, especially these last couple of years. I do not think that I would be the same person if I went to another school after eighth grade. Dominican High School has turned into a second home for me for the past four years.

When I was a freshmen, if you told me that I would be a senior and graduate from Dominican, let alone be as successful as I was, I would tell you that you’re crazy. I really struggled my freshmen year and it was really hard. However, my sophomore year I finally figured out how to succeed in high school. It was then that I decided to increase the amount that I helped out around the school. This, along with my excelling grades, improved my attitude immensely.

On my first day of freshmen year I did not know what I was going to do in an extracurricular sense. On that first day, a friend told me to go with him to stage crew, little did I know that I would be in stage crew for the rest of my high school career. Yes, I have been a dedicated member of technical theater at Dominican ever since my freshmen year. I have participated in ten shows at Dominican and that experience has been a highlight of high school for me. I have done everything in technical theater. My specialty is flies and rigging. My favorite project that I have worked on was that I got to hang four new curtains early this year.

I have also sacrificed countless hours of service. This service has made me into the person that I am today. I firmly believe that service is a key element to the Dominican High School experience. I am more than happy to sacrifice my time for this school because it not only builds our school, but it also builds the kingdom of God.

I will always remember my high school years as a time in my life when I pushed myself and made great strides to reinvent myself from a punk eighth grader to a new person.

I have had some hard times and some great times in high school. However, these times have made me into the person that I am today. These times have changed me. Sometimes having to change things in life means pain, but it is definitely worth the sacrifice.

Cheers and Best Wishes,
