Only a few months remain until I graduate and leave high school behind. It seems like it’s a long, long time from now, but I know it isn’t at all.
When I started my senior year, I was so excited to finish it. And now, here I am, wishing it would all slow down a little.
I’ve been accepted into the college I want to go to and I picked out my dorm with my soon-to-be roommate. But I think what really made me realize I’m transitioning into an adult is the fact that I’m now making a list of what I need to get for my dorm room.
When I saw the words microwave, detergent, and plunger, it hit me-- everything is changing. My parents won’t be there to make dinner, do my laundry, or clean, it will be my job to do all of those adult chores and more.
