So, In a way yeah I got what I wanted. I found my first high school love, I was hanging out every weekend. The first time in my life I thought I had the high school life that was right. However, at what cost was this new since of popularity?
I’m grateful for that place, we’ve learned and struggled and in the end, we graduated. As amazing as the school was, there was one moment that I can and will never forget. We all have those stories of that high school crush. I have one significant story of how I got asked to prom at my high school. It was a regular school day; I tended to stay after for extracurricular activities.

First week goes well; all assignments finished on time, family let me have my time to do work. Later on down the road of education the struggle of balancing life and work finally took its toll on me. After only attending college for two semesters I dropped out of college, diminishing my dream of having a college degree. Man, what was I thinking? I viewed myself as a quitter or failure; I couldn’t finish something again.
It is not the end but the beginning of something new. For Johnson, her family and her community they were anxious, happy, and couldn’t just wait for the big day to come. They kept busy preparing for what I would call one of the most importance days of their lives. Almost everyone in the school took part or helped in some way except the graduating class. The importance of graduation is to help you realize that after all the hard work, effort, and dedication there is always a result and that is graduating.
To be able to achieve a superior rating at these contests, one must practice every week. I have been able to achieve superior ratings in all but one of my performances. It is very rewarding to me, being goal oriented, to receive such high ratings. There may be challenges, but there are more rewards.

The importance of a Bishop Noll education this past year has surpassed my highest expectations. It has opened my eyes to the reality of what a great school can do for you both academically and spiritually. From the first day of school, the challenges & hurdles that have come my way have been great examples of what life has in store for me at the college level and in the future workforce. This philosophy is made clear at Bishop Noll, starting with the faculty, teachers, coaches and advisors. These values then get absorbed from every student and it becomes a trickled down affect that empowers us all.
This is one of my first classes. I am excited, nervous and any other emotion that you can think of, I am feeling it! I want to learn everything that I can out of this class and I mean everything. It’s been a long time since I was in school and I am more focus then I was 10 years ago. It was vary nice getting to know you and I can't wait to get the show on the
When I was younger, I would look at high school seniors, like my older brother and his friends, and think, “Wow, they have their whole lives figured out. They know what they’re doing.” I thought that when I was a senior, by some some cosmic enlightenment, I would have figured out where I want to go in life, myself. I thought I would have a job, a bank account, and even my own car. Standing here today, I now know that I was wrong. I admit, I still have no clue on what exactly I want to do with my future and I have accepted that that’s okay.
