Every month for the past two years, at least two pieces of 11 x 17 paper always have been driving me crazy. I’m stressed, frazzled, and just plain out psycho when it comes to them.
I have been a part of this class for the past three years and it wouldn’t be that surprising if I were to be stressed because of journalism. Albeit this, I still love the class and stayed.
Questions have been thrown at me as to why I stayed so long despite the time constraint and the stress I get from the class and I can only think of one answer to this question. Passion.
I have always loved writing since I was a kid and there has always been this thrill in me every time the newspaper came out. We were able to produce something from scratch in a matter of a few weeks, a feat that most kids won’t be able to say they have accomplished.
As I ponder over the past three years with this class and think about all the meltdowns and sleepless nights I have had, I can’t imagine my high school career without it. It was all worth it.
Being my final column, I have my last lesson from high school. If you have passion for something, then keep on doing it. There’s no better feeling than being able to do something you love while having fun at the same time.
This goes for anything in life, whether it be sports or academics, a passion should be followed no matter what. It’s better to regret doing something rather than regret not doing something.
There are many roads in one’s high school career to pass through and many things to experience. Have fun now and see what you like while you have the luxury of time to change.
And as to writing for this newspaper, I suppose this is goodbye but expect more writing from me in the future and no matter what, I will always look back to the three years of my high school career in which I spent time writing and having fun doing something that I love.
