This past Saturday was my final high school homecoming. So weird to think about how after Saturday night’s events were over, that was the last time I would experience things related to the high school homecoming. Although I realize college’s have their own homecoming, something about this is being part of the whole high school experience. It’s like a ritual every student goes through. Freshman year it’s exciting and new and you have no idea what’s going to happen, and by the time senior year rolls around, homecoming is an excuse to get pampered and have a good time with friends.
The final homecoming has also brought to my attention the importance of attending any high school event you can. There is something about attending these events that just seems right as a high school student, and you can really feel like you missed out on something if you don’t attend all of these events.
So I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, get involved at your high school! You never know how much fun you can have at the most boring events with a group of close friends. By being involved you will never feel like you missed out on something in high school you may later regret missing. High school only happens once.
