Standing at the Fork in the Road
I’ve quickly come to the conclusion that graduating High School kind of, well…sucks.
A week into my post-graduation life, I have been reflecting just what this event means. It has been so many of years of following a specific routine, going to school every day, waking up early, constantly prying my brains to recall information for tests, living in constant agony upon remembering a project/assignment that I forgot to complete.
And now, this chapter of life is over. Wherever I go next, I’ll still be studying and completing work, but everything will be different.
But the problem is that I am unsure of how the next chapter unfolds. The process of choosing universities and applying to them has been tough, and discussing my options with the parental units has been troubling, at best. I have no idea of how to convince them to let me choose how I want to proceed.
Enjoying this “vacation” is made difficult with all of these doubts running through my head. A year from now, this all will probably seem trivial and childish, but at the moment it is everything I think about.
