Halcyon

It would be a few more days until I'll be walking up the stage to receive the diploma congratulating me for the thirteen years I've spent in school.  Thirteen years spent trying to find who I am and what makes me happy. I'm always trying to join so much activities to accomplish these two goals. I've done a lot of activities in High School, but I am most grateful for the Xavier School VOYC Modeling segment. Most would think it would be "too much" to start practicing on October for a Fashion show on February, but it just exposes the desire to make the show worthwhile. What makes it better is that all the proceeds go to a charity. Doing something so fun while giving back? It's crazy. I grew up a lot in that multi-purpose hall, where we always had practices. Each year was a transition from that semi-shy, purely awkward girl to the person I am today. Each year was always full of practices, which taught me how to have discipline, decision-making skills, and passion and drive in everything I do. Each year, they gave me confidence and gave me worth to dream the dreams I have now. 

Both on the day itself and the day before, I felt extremely happy yet extremely sentimental. I wouldn't exchange all my experiences with anything. The whole experience isn't all about gaining confidence by routinely practicing how to walk and whatnot, it's about finding yourself and growing as a person amidst people who believe in you. It pained me to see the faces of the people I had spent every week with to suddenly leave. Maybe the circumstances changed, but the memories I have with them don't. Seeing my friends after the show also warmed my heart. They have supported me since day one and I didn't know how else to thank them except with infinite hugs and actual verbal "thank you"s.

VOYC gave meaning to my Thursdays, and the latter part of each school year. Now that I'm in the latter part of my whole high school life, I'd like to thank them for being a part of my identity. Halcyon means happiness. This has been a constant Halcyon in my life, and I hope you all find your own Halcyon.
