So I submitted a senior commencement speech! I figured for someone who loves writing so much, I might as well go for it. Carefully choosing words, and composing draft after draft was tough, but it was a great experience. If you’re a senior, we’re voting next week in advisory. I’d love your vote! 🙂
Here it is:
Thirteen. We’ve spent thirteen years in school. Five days a week, nine months a year, we have had a place to go, a place to learn, a place to grow. For thirteen years we have been dreaming of what this day would be like. We imagined how we would feel when we heard our names called. We wondered who would be the kid to trip in front of thousands. We dreaded the waiting as we listened to every last name in our class to be read. But what we might not have realized is that it would give us time reminisce over the time we spent at Wayzata.
