Seniors view the last year of high school as a time to celebrate the last year of waking up early, having to do work that they do not favor, or even being around people they do not like.

My last year of high school is something I view as a “ticking time bomb.” I dreaded this year for the longest time, but now that it is finally here I don’t know what to do. I had so much planned in my head, but when it is finally time for me to do the stuff, I’m stuck on pause.

Some seniors already have their life planned out from start to finish. Me, on the other hand, waited and waited until I finally realized I wanted to be a marketer. Marketing is something I have wanted to do for the longest time. I love advertising, because it draws the consumer in to want to buy the product you are selling.

I asked around school to see what other seniors are planning to do after high school. One student, Ava, said, “I want to be a nurse when I grow up; I want to see the smiles on my patients’ faces when I help them.”

Shawn, another senior, said his intention is to go to college. “I don’t know what I want to do after college. In college, I want to major in broadcast journalism.” Shawn said he is hoping to go to Bowie State, but he’s still waiting to hear if he was accepted.

The post-high school experience is a big step in a young adult’s life. We finally meet that milestone in our lifetime at graduation where we need to make a decision that dictates our lives forever.

Graduation will be on June 6 at Harford Community College. I am looking forward to seeing where the class of 2017 ends up!
