High school is ending and there's no used pretending, I am eager and anxious, overjoyed and scared. Twelve years of my life has been taken up by schooling and I'm going to miss the monotony and the rut it's put me in. I've met a ton of people on the way and many of them I am glad I'm leaving behind, there are some that I'm going to lose along the way and there are many that I am going to hold in my heart at all times. And to all the people who have helped me get up and move on, or thrown me to the dirt, I offer my sincere thanks. I can only hope you take it.
You've made me who I am and pushed me further than I thought I can go. I know that I'm going to need you as my best friends for the rest of my life and, again, I can only hope that you'll need me through out your years and I can play a part in your lives. Even when I wasn't on my game, or just felt like having a mental breakdown, you were there, and I cannot possibly express how much that actually means to me. And so I am also sorry I've been a shitty friend to you. And to those who decided to put me down and say that I couldn't, you will regret every second that you made me, and sometimes I still do, believe the bullshit that you were, and are currently, spouting. You make me want to prove the whole world wrong and force you to see that Michaela Smith is worth something! Something far more valuable than you will ever know.
And to those I don't know live yet. My roomates, my future classmates, my professors and supervisors and everyone out there that I have yet to experience. Know that I am passionate. Know that I am not the most articulate person. Give me time and space and respect. I will know you. You will become a part of my life, and you get to decide who you will be.
To everyone who is, to everyone who was, to everyone who will be... allons-y.
Yes, this is the equivalent to a sappy Graduate Facebook Status.
