As the Class of 2017 begins  preparing for graduation at Temple Liacouras Center, it starts to sink in for the current juniors that in only a month they’ll be the next graduating class of Archbishop Ryan.

Current junior Sarah Kelly tweeted, “Scary to think that this time next year I’ll be graduating.”

Another junior tweeted: “I know I’ll probably regret saying this this time next year, but I can’t wait to be a senior.”

In the next year to come, the soon to be seniors will start having to make decisions about their future. The worries of a freshman physical science or world history grade, is starting to look way better now than the worries of what college to attend.

An alum of Archbishop Ryan recently said, “When people say high school is the fastest four years of your life, you don’t believe them. But, one minute you’re at freshman orientation and then the next you’re trying on your cap and gown, and it starts to get real.”

It is kind of surprising to think how fast the last four years have gone by for the seniors. As freshmen and sophomores we couldn’t wait to be upperclassmen. The idea of being distinguished as an upperclassman by the hype of proms, the gray skirts and pants, and the different course selections seemed so exciting to us back then.

Now, as we go through the graduation process, maybe we shouldn’t have been so quick to wish to grow up.

 

Senior year is going to be an exciting one for this year’s juniors, but it’s important to not rush through next year. Eventually, it’ll all come to an end and you may wish you could go back, and do it all over again. I know I do.
