She said: Graduating seniors look back

Despite my less than desirable situation, i.e. stuck at home for the last three weeks of senior year due to mono, 18 years of education are done. When it's time to look back on all of the good and bad times, you would be surprised at what we have learned and continued to relearn since kindergarten.
