Salutations! Or would you rather I just say a simple hello?

Personally I think salutations is a fantastic word. Salutations is an expression of good will, and a gesture of respect and acknowledgement. It can also be used as a farewell. Salutations is a word that isn't used nearly as often as it should be. It makes the English language beautiful, and it's one of my favorite words. But I have many favorite words that I could write endlessly about. I digress.

As for me, today was my last day of high school. And a crazy, totally insane day it was. But not for the reasons you think. I forgot my poetry final at home, of all things. I had to look up the final on my phone-since it was shared with me online-and write down the answers in my yearbook so that I could type the answers on the computer after class. Somehow I still managed to finish the final, print it, and hand it into my teacher right before the deadline. Still got an A. I didn't even have to pay a library fine. Despite the craziness of almost failing an easy class, it was a memorable day. My school even played dramatic Star Wars music as the seniors left the building to play outside. Can't beat that. Not to mention I got to visit the "dungeon" underneath the school yesterday.

Yes, my school really does have a dungeon. I got to sign my name on a wall where someone wrote "welcome to Narnia". I don't want to know why my school has a dungeon. I was afraid to ask any questions.

It's odd to think that it's been four years already. I am never going to another homecoming bonfire again. And I'm not going to see a group of boys trying to barbecue hot dogs on a ten foot pole, or see a cross country runner dress up as Jesus and body surf during the winter formal dance. That being said...graduating still doesn't feel real to me. I know that I'll never relive those moments, see the same people, but it just hasn't hit me yet. Although I'm not feeling terribly emotional at the moment, I'm sure I'll be that one awkward kid crying as I'm walking to receive the diploma.

In the meantime,
Salutations dear Reader!
