Saying Goodbye and Moving On

What’s it like saying goodbye to your friends from high school?

I never thought about this, but now I feel like it is one the hardest questions that I am answering. I can’t believe that it is already the end of the year. It is very sad. I have spent two years of school at Kent, and it is like my home now.

It will be hard to say goodbye for my friends, but I will never say goodbye to them, instead I will say see you soon. I guess this way it will make me feel better mentally.

Even though it is sad to leave, I think I am happy to have done my best during these last two years, and I have grown a lot as a student and as a leader. One of the things that I would really miss is the positive attitude of our faculty members, and stuff. At Kent, I can’t even imagine any school being better than them.

I don’t know if I should be really excited for college, but I am surprised that I am not as excited as I thought I would be. I feel like I need more time to adjust myself going in to a completely new environment.

In about two weeks, my graduation is coming up. I am really excited about it. I haven’t gone to so many graduations here, so it will be new to me. I can visualize that day when all of the girls are going to look beautiful with their white dresses, and if it is going to rain, then it will be a tragedy, but I hope not.

I am excited to see my family members coming for my graduation and joining me. I haven’t seen my parents in like a year, so I can’t wait to see them soon and hopefully my siblings too.


  1. Way back, the only thing that kept bothering me whilst attending my high school graduation was the fact that my family wasn’t that financially blessed and the chance to attend a university wasn’t that positive. When i have gotten the break to pass a university entrance exam that would give me a full scholarship, that was the time i started missing my friends, my teachers and amongst all playing baseball.

  2. High school is an excellent opportunities for those to become professional in life. I have studied English for 2 year and still have difficulty of writing and speak. The good news is since I started reading the VOA student blog, It has really improved my English. I have enormous goal to become good English writer. No matter what happen I will never give up. Thank you the VOA English teaching department for shearing the information with ESL.
