My brother at his tournament ; they got second place.

Junior year, you really tested me. This has been an eventful year for me, to say the least. I have made new friends, tried new things, and of course found another little piece of me that I did not know was there. You really did give me tears; I cried for family members who passed, friends that I’ve lost, grades that dropped for five seconds, and so many more things.
Junior year, I will say that you did give me the best laughs I’ve ever had, many smiles, and a new perspective. Although you did make me wish that this was all over multiple times and made me believe that I was ready to graduate, you know for a fact that I will miss you. Thank you for the memories, the friends, the hugs, the tears, and the pain.
This year has made me a stronger person, because it has shaped me for my years ahead. So here is a goodbye, not like any other I’ve made, but a very special one. Thank you for everything you have done for me.

So to end this, I guess you could say junior year was a roller-coaster for me. But at the end of it all, I can honestly say, the people who stuck by me will forever hold a place in my heart.
I hope you have enjoyed my articles this year and have had an amazing year as well. Thank you all for your never-ending love and support.
So see you later alligator, and in a while crocodile.
Signing off for the last time,
