Life is full of ups and downs. When things go wrong we learn to appreciate the small good things in life. Just like everyone else I been through both bad and good experiences, and I had obstacles along the way that made my road a little harder. That is why I believe the year 2011 aka my senior year has been the best time of my life so far.
One of the reasons why 2011 was the best time of my life is because I was a senior in high school. I was doing great in school, and my grades were better than ever. I was in the honor roll of my school for almost every marking period and that made me feel ...view middle of the document...
So we got to do a lot of things. We went snow tubing, skiing and we went to a little party in the night. Also one of my friend’s boyfriend was a good cook so on our last night there he cooked dinner for us and we invited one of our chaperones and it was really nice to gather there and had a meal together because after all we had to cherish the last few months together we had before we all graduated it and went to different schools.

I remember I pinched myself a few times to make sure it was all real and it was really happening, I was graduating! Throughout the whole ceremony I couldn’t stop smiling. As I enter the auditorium I saw about 800 people there and I remember walking with my head held high with so much pride. I knew that this was it this was the day I was going to prove everyone that didn’t believe in me wrong. A lot of people tend to stereo type teen moms as girls that end up dropping out of high school living of welfare, what they don’t realize is that most of the girls that do end up dropping out don’t have another choice. The fact that I didn’t fall into that stereotype made me feel very...
