What are you looking forward to most this year?
As I begin my final year at Mercy, I can't help but think about all the lasts I will experience this year. Last Back-to-School Blast, last Walk, last Winter Dance, last retreat, all the way down to my last day in my beloved Mercy skirt. While these thoughts sadden me, they also excite me. I feel so fortunate to have spent my years at Mercy with the best friends I could ask for, and I am only looking forward to all the amazing memories we will make together this year. It is hard to say what I am looking forward to the most this year because everything I am looking forward to is what I am dreading at the same time. I am dreading experiencing these things for the last time as I realize that my days at Mercy are quickly diminishing, but I know they will create some of my most cherished high school memories.
That being said, I think the thing I am most looking forward to this year is Prom. As seniors, this is one of our last chances to get to spend time with each other. Simply choosing Mercy has given me the privilege of having 113 immediate sisters I know I can turn to, both in times of joy and sorrow. Prom is one of those times of joy, where we will be able to celebrate our amazing four years together. Prom is our last hoorah together, with a week of sorrow following, as we prepare to graduate. This experience will be something we can all look to in those times of sorrow – a time we can all look back on and remember the wonderful times we had together at Mercy.
Looking back at my time at Mercy, I realize the value of each day and the happiness it brought me. This year, I strive to make every day a day I look forward to. Realistically speaking, not every day will be a good day, but I know simply walking into the doors of the Academy make each day a little brighter – and that is something I can confidently say I look forward to.
