Dear seniors of 2017…

Dear seniors,

You guys graduate tomorrow. You’re done now. You’re going on to the next big adventure of your lives. You’re leaving us all.

When I first saw the ¨Get to Know a Senior¨ video, I cried. You’re leaving, finally. Leaving and we never really said thank you hard enough or as much to compensate for everything you did do. We wouldn’t be able to thank you enough for all you did, but we never did enough. All we did was complain about you or just ignore you. I feel that while we may not leave as powerful a footprint as you, we will maintain it as long as we can and make you guys proud. We promise.

You guys are going to leave such a strong legacy at the school. You are the first graduating class of our school and will probably be the best to ever graduate from here. There’s no lying there: you guys are such amazing people.

To those, I didn’t get to talk to or I was just too shy or too nervous: I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk to you and really enjoy the moments we had. Now, I realize that I should’ve done more and should’ve talked to you instead of being awkward and all that. Regardless, we can’t change that anymore, but I’m really sorry either way.

You, as an entire class, are such an inspiration. You guys are squad goals, friend goals, everything goals. You guys are the goal of all of us. You guys are the example and you set the bar pretty damn high, to be honest. How’d we get all the way up? The good thing is we have people like Kaylest and people like Raga who are obviously going to be big, like you guys, one day.

I’m aware that no seniors are going to see this, but I just needed to get it out. I can’t tell you in person, so might as well on my blog, amirite?

A few things before you go: please, please continue on being yourself. Please be the amazing people you are and work hard and in a smart manner in college or in the army or wherever the path I’ll take you. Make sure to always enjoy the time because while you guys were here, we didn’t really actually savor the moments we had and we didn’t think about how meaningful and important they’d be until they’re gone.

I was thinking about writing something longer, but I don’t know what else to say other than thank you so much and sorry. Oh, and of course good luck.

Sincerely,

Me
