You would have disappointed everyone if there weren’t tears in your speech. It is an emotional day-everyone crys. Congratulations! Sounds like it was a big hit.
If you are looking for a transition project between HS and College, I would suggest you finish your HS scrapbook. If you don’t do it now, you probably never will. That might help you focus on a specific project, bring closure and give you a treasure for the rest of your life. Don’t forget to include your speech and a list of the things you want to accomplish in 4 years, 10 years, and 20 years. It is fun to dream and plan ahead. Have a great summer.
