As spring begins to make itself known in the town of Bethel, I can’t help but to begin to realize that the year is almost over. The long, sun filled days of the spring term are coming to an end, and even though some may argue that we still have three weeks left, I can assure you that they will most certainly fly by. It’s amazing how fast the days go by, but also the years. I remember freshman spring like it was yesterday, and now I’m at the end of my junior year. How is that possible?
Ms. Libby, in her presentation about college prep during Parents Weekend this weekend, referred to my class as the “rising seniors.” It feels like yesterday that my friends and I were experiencing our first spring at Gould, learning about some of Gould’s spring ‘traditions.’ Sitting in the adirondack chairs after dinner, laying on the fields with ice coffees from the Mouse and Bean during free period, soaking up the sun while playing lacrosse on the upper fields. It’s weird to think that there are only a few weeks left of this. Last week were proctor elections, and that was when it really hit me. We’re almost done. So my advice for all of you, is to seize the day. School’s almost over, and seniors — your high school years are almost over. Summer’s fast approaching, and I know I definitely can’t wait, but embrace the last days of the year. Work hard and finish the year with memories you won’t forget. Oh, and carpe diem. Live it up. We’re almost done.
