Graduation can come with a wide variety of emotion ranging from happiness to sadness, and from excitement to relief. Some students are as ready as it gets when it comes to graduating and moving on from high school. On the other hand, there are some people that aren’t as ready to graduate.
Some people just aren’t ready to move on from high school into college or the work force, but our teachers have taught us what we need to know and we have done all we can do at this point as students. It’s time to move on to a life of bigger and better things.
As a student, I can understand why people don’t want to graduate, it can be scary going into the real world but it’s all a part of growing up. Whether you are going to a four year college or straight into the workforce graduation, it is a common pivot point for all students and it is up to each of us to make the most of it.
