Thoughts about high school experience

Four years later, looking back it went by fast. All the things I have done, and everything I have worked for is over. Finally it has all paid off. I managed to keep my 4.0, even juggling the many extra-curricular activities I have done. The many late nights I spent finishing that paper in order to have it in on time and get a good grade was worth it. Here I am graduating and going on to continue my education, all because of the hard work I have done. So to all of you underclassmen - don't give up and always do your best. It is worth it in the end.
