Summer question mark

We're down to about 6 days of school left.
It's at the point where schools getting so close to being out for the summer that it's getting bittersweet.
You walk through the hallways and realize that you'll never be in school with these seniors again. You'll miss certain teachers; who now as you look back, you see that they truly did change your life in a positive way.
As I walk down the halls; I don't have regret. But I wish I did more.
Walking to class today, there was a quote on the wall as I looked up: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world" - Gandhi.
I feel like I could've done more. There's always more that can be done. We need to constantly be progressing and improving ourselves. I should've said hi to more lonely kids. I should've walked the new kid to class. I should've sat with the lonely girl eating lunch on the stairs. I should have dropped off more notes in people's lockers and left love notes for friends in their textbooks. I should've given someone my prime parking spot. I should have tried harder to get better grades. Like I said, I don't have regrets. But I certainly have things that I would do a little bit differently if I were able to go back. The thing about time is that it's seriously so precious.

“Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” -- H. Jackson Brown

I think that a lot of the times we sit around, waiting for things to happen; wishing for things that never will happen if you just SIT there.

I've decided that I want this to be my most productive summer. A summer when I have a job; a summer in which I will make a change. A summer in which I will be closest with the people I love, and remind them how much they truly mean to me. 

T-wolves, this is it for a lot of you. Seniors, I will miss you more than you know. I love each of you so very much. 

Let's make it one awesome last week of school: and what I repeat over and over in my head during races: No Regrets.
