2: Journal Entries!!!!! | From day one, I was so scared I couldn't stand it I thought I would faint from when the time I was five until the day I had to start the scariest part of my life which I thought I couldn't get by I stepped inside building of fear and I felt like I was in air I felt like falling over I didn't wanna stay but I had no choice I thought I wanted to still be a little kid but growing up made me learn how to move on....with my life everybody had their lives to live for and I had mine No control over anybody else I just wanted to be myself and didn't let anything get in the way of making life easy as can be Where have the years gone Sometimes oh I wish I wanna go back then I look into the present and everybody thats moved on and I know I'm gonna have to move on and learn times get tough,they can be easy Where have the years gone....Oh moving on is tough but you have to stand up and keep your head held high Never lose faith in yourself Always stay strong Memories last forever and in your heart nothing has changed Where have the years gone to.... -Troy Hinkle
3: I'm still speechless about the amazing time I had today. When Christian and I were standing on that brick wall, overlooking the town I felt like I was on top of the world. The sun shining on my face and the wind slightly blowing my hair felt like magic. In those few precious moments when we were looking at the high school we didn't have to worry about the near future that had been hanging over us for weeks, but we were able to relish in the few moments that we still had together. Most people would have said we were just a couple of reckless teenagers with no brains but in those short few moment I finally realized who I was. I may be a lot of negative things but I also realized that I have the most amazing friends on the face of this earth. I will never forget the times of tears and laughs under the sun with my close friends. As I breathe in the sweet summer air memories of this year come flooding back to me. Odd things with no particular time and place are branded into my mind; Shannon laughing uncontrollably, Miranda biting Derrick. Charlie licking my cupcake. Troy missing a shot in basketball. And then there is the most recent memory of all: Christian and I as we were crossing the boundary between schools and symbolically saying goodbye to our lives as middle schoolers. My mind feels as if it is in over drive trying to sort out all the new information I have gathered from today. I finally realize Christian was right the whole time: What people think of you doesn't matter, if you give life a chance you and learn to be happy with yourself the world seems to be a better place, and not to wait around for people that aren't worth waiting for. Today I realized who my true friends were. I found comfort in each and every hug and laugh. I hope to never forget this day. I will be living in those moments all summer until I can see all their smiling faces once again. But I also know that if I were to die before I saw them again, I would die with no regrets of my past and only a slight longing for my future that would never happen. I have so many people that love me and I'm just now realizing that they have always been there, and that they always will be. -Ciara Deskins
