Years pass by. Slowly you get taller and smarter. You learn new things and you begin to ask inquisitive questions that just pop out of your mouth. You pass through grades, where you feel as if everyday takes a year and you experience more things. Sometimes scary sometimes crazy and sometimes fun. As years whip past, your childhood years begin to blur into a mess of memories all out of place in your mind. Looking back on everything that has actually happened in 13 years it all seemed to have gone so quickly.
It feels like just yesterday when I stepped into the halls of middle school, somewhat intimidated by all the grade eight kids who towered above us all. And now look! We're the big grade eight kids now that all the little kids look up to. This year has been phenomenal. Grade eight has been phenomenal. So many laughs and jokes. But what's scary is that next year is the year of grade nine where you'll walk the halls of high school, once again the newbies and the youngest. Maybe you'll be a bit different. A bit changed... This time you're one year older, one year wiser and you have one more year of life's experiences under your belt. Still, you're exposed to so many new things and you'll be soaking it up and living it all up. Amongst all this excitement comes also learning about yourself and finding yourself amongst a billion other people on this planet.
Trying to find yourself I think is the hardest thing in life. You could almost picture yourself as a puzzle. You're job is to complete the puzzle to form what you want yourself be be like. The tricky thing with this is that this puzzle has so many pieces and sometimes pieces fit in different spots then you would have thought. And sometimes more than one piece can fit. To find your true inner self you have to listen to your gut feeling instead of being told what to do. Sometimes you have to be a bit different from the crowd and that's hard when you always want to fit in.
This year has gone by fast. Too fast and I just don't know what to say to that, it's been indescribable. If I had to use one word to describe this year I wouldn't be able to. I guess you could describe it as superawesomeamazingfun but does that really count for one word? But I guess since I have to end blog post this I'll leave it to one of my favourite quotes that really just ends it well. All I hope is that next year will be just as memorable and just as amazing as this year as some of us head off on new paths in life. Remember to live that roller coaster of life and have fun!
