I think the weirdest thing about growing up in an age where social media is so prevalent is that you can quantify how much you’ve grown throughout the years. Who were your best friends, where you were, how immature you were; it’s all there for you to just scroll back and see.
Graduating has really weighed on my mind lately since I only have roughly 6 to 8 more weeks of school left and it’s forced me to reflect on my 4 years here at SC and subsequently the 4 years previously in high school. Facebook has really reminded me of my happy memories in the past 8 years and the fact that I actually have 8 years full of memories behind me.
The things I’ve done, the people I’ve spent time with, and the places I’ve been. I’ve suddenly realized that I’ve lived this somewhat full and fascinating life and I’m so scared and yet excited for the next 8 plus years ahead of me.
