The Uproar

Cassidy Kufner
I appreciate that I can say I’ve had the privilege of taking classes I could always find at least some degree of genuine enjoyment in. I know that I will enjoy college way more, but honestly, high school wasn’t so bad. I would say to try and make the best of everything, and don’t be afraid to take opportunities because for us, there are so many. Treat yourself senior year and take a fun class because you deserve it. Most importantly, senior year has taught me not to sweat the small things because in the end, they don’t matter!
