Seniors say goodbye

Lola Brama

Graduating high school has always been something that I’ve looked forward to. It’s a major milestone that everyone seeks to achieve. I didn’t care how I got there, or what happened in between, as long as I graduated. Out of the AP exams, SATs, and other challenging coursework, I never thought saying goodbye would be the hardest challenge I would have to take on in my four years.

I’ve never put that much weight on my goodbyes. Even though some of them can be so monumental, it’s easier to not put pressure on it than to put the weight of the world on it. Saying goodbye to the last four years of my life, to the people I met, and to my friends seems next to impossible. These people have helped me grow into the person I am today. I can not imagine the last four years without them. I could spend all day writing out names of people who I have appreciated or who’ve been there for me throughout high school, but I feel that those people know who they are. Thank you for being there for me. I genuinely would not be here if it weren’t for you. Your presence and friendship in my life has not gone unnoticed, and I am incredibly grateful for it.

Grayslake North has taught me an incredible amount of lessons that I will carry throughout college. The staff has an incredible amount of support for their students, and I am incredibly grateful for it. The coursework is challenging and the staff is willing to help and support their students through it. With my experience, I missed a lot of school. I was always gone on “another hockey trip,” and it was challenging for me to make up for my school work. However, my teachers were there for me and helped me catch up on different units and assignments that I missed. Goodbye teachers and staff; thank you for supporting me and helping me grow and expand my knowledge.

Goodbye is one of those words you can never escape, not even after writing 340 words for a column. So goodbye. Thank you for being there for me, for making these years memorable, and I wish you all the best time in college and beyond. Thank you Grayslake North, you will be missed tremendously.
