What does "high school graduation" mean to you?

I'm only a high school freshman, but my senior friends have mixed emotions about leaving high school behind.

I feel that I can't relate to them because I never really had to say goodbye before.

How do they feel?

    They just feel weird because it's the first time in their life that they will be leaving a group of people they've known most of their life and they may never see them again. It's exciting because the school year is over and everybody is always happy when summer vacation comes but it's scary because you know you won't be coming back in the fall. It's just a major change and it feels really strange to know that you won't have that familiar routine anymore. I hated school and I couldn't wait until graduation but I had that scared feeling of 'Oh crap, now what am I going to do?' I ended up taking a year off after high school before I went to college because I had no clue what to do with myself anymore. I didn't really want to go to college anyway.

    A lot of people are sad because they know they may never see certain friends again. I didn't really care about that since I knew I'd still call people if I cared that much about it. Since I graduated, I've only kept in touch with 2 people and I'm fine with that. I do remember having a feeling like I was leaving my old life behind and that I was being forced to start a new one. It's a feeling of responsibility that I didn't really want to have. When you're a senior, you start to realize that you will soon have to make a lot of decisions that you've never had to make before. When you're growing up, you know that every day/year you are forced to get up and go to school and you just do what everyone tells you to do and it's easy and predictable. Once you graduate, there's really no one left that can 'make' you do anything and even though that should feel great, it can be scary.
