I guess it’s about time I officially announce to everyone that I’m moving. Up till now it’s just been gossip. So let me confirm and clarify rumors now
I’m moving to Virginia. No, I will not be gone forever as I am just making the transition from my dad’s house to my mom’s house, for reasons that are my own. I feel no need to express these reasons for it’s really none of your business, internet. I hope that about sums everything up.
You know that old saying “you don’t know what you got till it’s gone? Well, I’ve always tried hard to appreciate everything I had but, as I am a human, somethings have gone overlooked. Don’t get me wrong, I know in my heart moving is the right decision, but there’s something about Brunswick high that I think I’ll really miss. I’ll miss all my favorite teachers so much. And senor, of course. I’ll miss cheer leading (as much as I complained about it). I’ll miss tennis a lot… more than I think I’m really prepared for. I’m sad that I can’t lead ms. Orr’s “Zombie Apocalypse Survival Club” and I’m sad that I can’t be Cheer captain. And I could name a million other selfish things I’d miss.
I suppose this should be entirely negative. I have certain things that make me very excited about moving. For one, I’ll be able to take a creative writing course. That’s pretty much a reason for me to leave in-and-of itself. Also, I can’t lie, I’m excited to meet some new people for a change. Over all, I don’t think it’s a bad decision, it’s just not going to be easy.
To keep on the optimistic note let me just take a moment to say. I do not regret anything I have done in Brunswick. While my life may have been easier if I hadn’t fallen for a few people, made a few wrong choices, and said a few wrong things, I do not feel like anything I have done deserves regret. I have made my mark on Brunswick the best and only way I know how. Mistakes and all, I hope that I will not be easily forgotten. The only thing I regret is not shortening the endless list of lives I haven’t entered.
As my last day at Brunswick High I just want to tell everyone there that I will miss them. It was truly a unique experience to be with a group of people so small and so close. To be perfectly honest, I never gave Brunswick much credit. But we always look on the past fondly. I hope that I never forget the people I have met from Brunswick and I hope you all leave room on the dance floor for me because I plan to come to your homecoming 🙂
To my cheerleaders: I so wish I could have been your captain this year. It has really been my dream since freshmen year. I know that you girls will do me proud, regardless and you better believe I will be in the stands for your competitions and pep-rally. Whether I’m OFFICIALLY a Roader or not, it’ll be hard to stop me from doing “The Roader Rumble” when I just get bored/
to my teachers:
Ms. Orr – you have inspired me to reach so much further in my love for English. Never have I had a teach who has made such an impact on me. I will so miss being your super SSL. And I am beyond sorry that I couldn’t lead Brunswick though a zombie apocalypse with you.
Mr. Hildbold – you have done the impossible sir, you taught me something in math. I really don’t think I’ll ever find another teacher who takes such a genuine interest in helping students. I’ll miss our conversations. Thank you for helping me.
Mr. Eiler – you have opened a whole new world of writing to me. Your class was probably one of the hardest I’ve ever taken, and while I DO hate that I only got a “B” I don’t feel as though I’ve ever walked away from a class with so much knowledge. I doubt I’ll ever forget how frustrated your work made me, but I’ll also never forget how much pride I had in what I did in your class.
My other teachers – all of you have taught me somethings i’m likely to never forget. While not all of you were the easiest to get though, I thank you. Being a teacher doesn’t look like such an easy job.
I could sit and write for ages about the people who have effected my lives, but I live by the philosophy that I should tell them on a regular basis. And I hope that I do. Everyone who I have ever called “my friend” means more to me than I think you guys will ever know. If you ever need ANYTHING, even if it’s a four O’clock in the morning, I will try my hardest to do it for you. Because I know you’d do the same.
I hope that this post clears things up and while it is mostly for me to just say how i’m feeling I hope those who are currently in Brunswick will see that, maybe it’s not all bad. Things are rough all over but I know for a fact there are a few people in Brunswick worth fighting for, even though the worst of times. Brunswick High School, you will not be easily forgotten. And you have certainly not seen the last of Miss Lizzy Knapp
