Took the rest of my core class finals today, and now looking forward to two, hopefully easy, elective finals tomorrow. The last day of school is within shooting range, and I’m sitting here without a bullet, waiting to finish these finals and load the gun and shoot off this confetti gun of celebration: Sophomore year has ended. It is a bittersweet ending, though. High school is pretty much half way over, and although I tell myself it will not fly by, it really has. The days themselves are slow, for the most part, but taking a step back and looking at it, it has gone by incredibly fast.
Here is one of my favorite quotes from a book I am reading, a book I read in 6th grade but was probably too immature to appreciate:
“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I’m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living now.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
