In less than 12 hours, I'll be sitting on my suitcase in front of El Cerrito High, either half-asleep, or bouncing up and down with excitement. It could go either way.
After Don dropped everything off at my house last night, I finally have everything I need. Now comes the challenge of fitting everything into my one suitcase, and having it weigh considerably less than 50 pounds. But even as I was sitting on top of my overflowing suitcase, close to tears with frustration, I could honestly say that this is the most exciting time of my life. After attending the EC graduation on Friday, I was struck with the realization that I'm really getting old! Next year, I'm going to be a senior applying for colleges, and I'm so grateful that this experience will mark my last summer going in to high school.
