20 days left. 20 more chances to make memories.
The school year is winding down. We only have twenty more school days which means this is it for seniors. In 20 school days, seniors will have a diploma in their hands, loans on their backs, and the real world staring them in the face. That’s why these final 20 days are crucial.
This may be the last time you go to The Grille. This may be the last time you go to Praise and Worship.
This will be the last time you see some of your classmates. Think of how many of your high school friends you still see? I’ll assume that it is a single digit number.
Now imagine that same scenario, only this time many of our friends are married, and even if they aren’t, we are all going across the country to many different places. It’s hard to grasp the concept that we might not be living in Dordt community much longer.
That’s why these last twenty days are crucial. I know it’s tough. I know it’s difficult to care at this point. Remember this, though– Make good memories. You might not get a chance to see your friends again after graduation. If they invite you to play pool, go! If they want to watch Community, watch with them. Don’t let the stresses of the real world creep up on you yet. They will be here soon enough.
Enjoy these last twenty days. They will be our last.
