“The Best Years of Your Life”
It was a Wednesday morning, and was the first time in months my alarm clock was not set for 6:30 am. The month of June was finally here and as I laid in my bed, I suddenly flashbacked to the past four years of my life. Those cool fall Friday nights cheering from the stands at the football games.

I was told to enjoy my high school years and to not take anything for granted, because you will never get those moments back. Time management has suddenly become my new best friend. I find myself in the library and laundry room more times then I ever had in my life. I live off of easy mac and bottles of Gatorade. It just goes to show that all good things do eventually come to an end, and most of the time we are never prepared for it.
