   It isn’t yet time to sing “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2, but for us seniors counting down the days – 71 more to go! – fears of the unknown are spread in all directions. There are many unanswered questions following the day the seniors class will all be in the same room for the last time when they walk across the graduation stage. There are questions about one is going post-high school to when “real life” finally begins.

   When the proposed “real life” begins, changes are bound to pop up on everybody’s current friendships.

   I so wish at this moment that I was one year older so I could have some guide, some advice, some sort of experience. Will my friends and I ever finish our Marvel Movie Marathon? Will we end up going on our road trip? Why didn’t Ned make a high school survival guide? For now, all I can do is hope that everything works out in the end.

   A majority of my friends are going to schools near each other. I’m going to the one farthest away. I’m more than a little worried.

   We’ve all have heard it before, “You’re not going to stay in touch with many of your high school friends.” Being in the generation which was raised on Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and yeah, sure, even Captain Underpants, we all feel the urgency to be the ones who defy the odds, who overcome anything.

   Harry Potter, you may have set my expectations too high.

   In all honesty, I don’t have an answer and I probably won’t for a while. This one will just have to remain a mystery for a while. The truth is, it’s not so much the answer I’m afraid of, it’s the uncertainty I’m fearful of. No matter how worried I am, I’ve learned that all I can do is keep rowing because I can’t control the river.
