There is just about a month, if not less, of school left!im so excited to leave that place :slight_smile: the only scary thing is that I don’t know what I’m going to do when I leave! But I can’t wait to go leave some of the people behind and only stay in contact with those who are important to me. I really want to become a band photographer but I don’t know if my arthritis will let me go to shows (people push each other around at shows a lot) I’m going to try anyway because it’s my dream job.

Sybil, I hope I can work through it. To me that’s the one thing that is worth all of the pain. Taking photos is everything to me and I don’t know where I’d be without my camera. (I’d certainly be EXTREMELY unhappy) I hope I become one of those success stories where the person actually accomplished their dream even though it was hard. I feel at home behind the camera and I don’t want to let that be taken from me. It’s just difficult to get the angles I want now but I still try anyway. I don’t know what I’m going to do for an actual job though (photography can’t pay for a house on it’s own unless I get famous haha) I can’t stand up for more than 10mins and I can’t keep sitting down. I’m going to need to look into what jobs are out there for people like me.

Don’t close any doors to yourself right now. If need be, take a gap year and let yourself get under better control. Are you really excited about graduating? Any party plans? My second niece is graduating from high school next month.

Stoney, I would love to take a gap year, but people are pushing me to go right to college. I don't know if I'm ready for that, I don't know if I could even do one class a day with the way I'm feeling. I do hope there will be a graduation party for me I think that would be lots of fun but right now I don't know. I am relieved that this school year is almost over because 12th grade was one of the hardest. (and i heard it was supposed to be easy) I will miss my teachers a lot though because they were very nice to me.
