Disclaimer:

Hey guys this article is based on first-hand experience that I have had so far in senior year/high school… this might not apply to all seniors but please enjoy!!!

 

Expectation:

As an underclassman, I always saw the seniors and thought they were so confident and they had their entire lives figured out.

Reality:

It’s hard for me to imagine that my peers and I might seem old and put together because I still see us as confused little freshmen who need to figure our lives out.

 

Expectation:

I would have an assigned parking spot that I would be able to park in every day.

Reality:

Parents and juniors park in my spot and the senior lot literally every day but it’s fine I’m not salty or anything.

 

Expectation:

I would have all my college applications done before the school year started.

Reality:

I just don’t and it’s super stressful.

 

Expectation:

My high school experience would be exactly like High School Musical and I would have a hot Troy Bolton boyfriend.

Reality:

Real life is NOTHING like High School Musical and I’m honestly kind of bitter about it because I’ve been in high school for 4 years now and still no Troy Bolton.

 

Expectation:

Freshmen would part like the Red Sea when I walk by and worship the ground I walk on.

Reality:

The freshmen have the nerve to look me in the eye when I walk by them, and I know that when I was a freshman, I was way more scared of the seniors than they are of us (I think that might be because there’s 140 of them and only 100 of us.)

 

Expectation:

By senior year I would be ready to graduate and go to college and leave Country Day.

Reality: I can’t imagine leaving yet and I am definitely not ready because I’m going to miss coming here so much.

Me and my girls slaying senior year!!!!
