Back to the past. The Class of 2024 has been at Cypress Creek High School since it opened in 2017. The wave of emotions that sixth graders  produced, caused a continuous ebb and flow. Some of us felt overzealous while some of us felt that the entire world was foreign –  lost in a sea of change. A new school. New classmates and high schoolers.

“It was a bit crazy, but I feel like it definitely did somehow find a way to work, despite it being middle schoolers and high schoolers,” said senior Mia Thomann.

Similarly, how most freshmen feel when coming on campus nowadays, the Class of 2024 experienced the same feelings of “what do I do?” However, as time flew by, so did our feelings. From small growing sprouts of pre-teens to fully grown herbs of young adults, class emotions morph as graduation slowly approaches. As seniors, we all feel saddened yet relieved, as this is our last year as Coyotes.  

Thomann said, “I’m a bit happy now that I’m a senior because it’s my last year, but at the same time…it’s sad because it’s my last year of school.”

With the satisfied nostalgia that we harbor, we also have thought about what happens after high school, which for some will be college. Many seniors have numerous options after high school, including apprenticeships, gap years, college, or even just going straight to the work force. All of these are viable options for a new beginning. However, many seniors have voiced that they have no clue what to do after high school. With so many options to choose, with multiple paths to take, it is understandable to get lost on the trails.  

With this all being said, College and Career Specialist Cassie Adley advises, “Find what makes you happy. Because at the end of the day, if that’s what you’re going to be doing the rest of your life, try and find what makes you smile.”

In life, it is best to do something you love rather than doing something you hate. No matter what choice you make, you should be content with your choice. With many Coyotes passing through this Creek with many variations of who we are, we all just have to take one step at a time.
