I can't believe it. I've actually graduated. I am just waiting for it to hit all of us, but for some reason, I suppose it hasn't really manifested itself in my heart yet that I am leaving. This isn't just summer, it's the end of six years of the most amazing high- school experience. I am going to miss all my family, especially my brothers, all of them, and my little sister, with whom I have shared a room for 16 years. What am I going to do without them? And my amazing cousin. Charlie and I are the same age, and in the same grade, going to the same school for the past six years. I have all these bonds and ties to people and places, which pull at my heart so strongly. We'll see how I manage, but it's going to be rough.
