The Awakening: A Whole New Book
Let's get this out of the way. The message I am sharing below does not pertain to any of the individuals pictured above. After graduating high school, I heard a lot of “going on to the next chapter” or something referring to going to another chapter. Well let me offer you a rebuttal. I believe that an individual starts a whole new book. Almost nothing you did in your adolescent years matters anymore, you start a whole new life after graduating. Now there’s approximately 4 different types of people (I might be missing some) after the completion of high school. The scholars: those who intend to achieve a degree at a higher level. The criminals: I do not need to explain this one. The clueless: these people are just living day by day, no progression. And the average citizen: those who join the workforce and are usually good Samaritans. (I’ll throw in any military affiliation with this category). Aristotle once said, “knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”, knowing who are in the perspectives of others could be very important. But what’s crazy is we don’t necessarily know who those around you are or in other words who they intend to become. As years go by you watch and see what type of adult’s former friends and classmates become and some will be astonishing. For myself, adulthood starts in less than 36 hours which is why this is my new book. It’s a new start for me and I have no idea what I’m walking in to. But subscribe to this blog to keep up with what I’m doing. But for real though, this will be an interesting journey.
Side Note: This is my first time doing anything like this so give me some time to get used to it.
