Today, I woke to the sound of my blaring alarm clock that broke the silence of dawn once the clock struck 6:45. I woke up with a start, slightly groggy and tired at the same time. It was completely silent with not a single sound. These are the best morning especially when the shiny sun streams into your room uninvited. Today was, you guessed it, the first day of school for me. To be quite honest with you I was slightly excited. As some of you might already know, I live in Ireland. Here, once you enter secondary school you are expected to prepare for the Leaving Certificate which is a State exam at the end of the 5-6 years you spent in school. This year is my last year, and I’m in 6th year now. *biting her nails out of nervousness* And today started out okay. I had an assembly, which was expected, received my new locker, and met with friends etc.
But nothing could describe the overwhelming feeling of finally being at the last year of school. I just don’t know the right word for it. Happiness. Bliss.Euphoria. From my first year up until today, I have waited and anticipated for so long. And finally, I will almost reach it by completing the Leaving Cert. This means I will have to work super hard to not only get the points I need for the University I want to get into but also to succeed this year. I’m sure many of you have felt this way before as if the “world is at your fingertips” and I honestly 100% sure this year will be the biggest change in all my 16 years.
This year, there are many things I want to change when I start. First I want to become more open to my peers. I’m not really sure how you readers perceive me. But I’m actually very queit. Truthfully I don’t have a lot of friends that are close to me, and I think I only have one true friend. But thankfully I discovered WordPress which is a whole different community that I am growing to love!
