Today was bittersweet, but only in my own head. I really didn't think I would be effected by graduation, I never really am. But as I watched the graduates walk across the stage I saw, my first best friend, my first boyfriend, my crazy informal geometry classmates, some enemies, and the people I never thought had an impact on me, but I realized, did. It was, not awkward, not hard, but, sureal to see Tilly on stage. It seems like yesterday that my sister forced me to go across the street and meet her. I hid behind my mom's legs while Tilly was reading a newspaper upside down, to seem smarter. Our friendship turned into so much more. Her family became my second family, and her home became the place where I went when fighting was going on at my own. I could always depend on her. We always would make up dances, sing songs, play board games, play with American Girl dolls, and My Little Pony. When Tilly moved up a grade, I really, truly, thought my life was over. I cried so hard, and tried to get my mom to push me up a grade too. I thought that she'd forget about me, but she never did. I met new friends through Tilly and thought I was as cool as ever. When I was in sixth grade, I felt like such a bad ass already knowing her friends. We're not as close anymore, but I know, whenever I need her, or her family, they'd be there for me in a heartbeat. Now, my first boyfriend, my first heartbreak, is obvious. It is also crazy to know he's done with highschool. It seems like I should be a freshmen and he should be a sophmore, and Ryan should be right at our sides. Spinner rims, third street cruises, frisbee, outhouse races, three muskateers, prison jokes, cheerleading magazines, STEWY!, nba basketball, first times, TWIRP, Christmas dance, okay, and so the list goes on, but the point I'm trying to make is, well, I don't know. Maybe because these two people have effected my life greatly. Others such as Lauren, Urbanski, Marybeth and Natalie, have impacted me also. Congrats everyone.
Now, class of '07, it's all about us.
