I cannot believe it is already 2018. Here comes a new year, giving each and every one of us new opportunities and chances in life. As upset as I am about the fact that winter break is coming to an end, I know that a new month leads us even closer to our journey to Tonga. The past 9 months have been filled with loads of excitement and knowing that I am leaving for Tonga in just less than 3 months still feels surreal.
Thinking past our trip, it also seems unreal that I’ll be graduating in 6 months. It certainly has been a crazy rollercoaster ride with so many important people and to think that we’re all going our separate ways in no time certainly saddens me. I met such delightful people throughout my 5 years of high school and without a doubt, I am so proud of how far we’ve all come together. In life comes along several new changes and no matter how much we’re not ready for it, we eventually have to accept it.
