Oh My Godding: it’s the end

After countless hours and days spent in the halls and classrooms of LHS my time here is coming to an end.

When I look back on the past four years of my life I can’t help but feel like just the other day I was a freshman entering the doors of LHS for the first time.

Now, it’s time to take one last look around and soak up all the memories and events that have happened over four years of my life.

I mean think about it seniors, we have spent about 700 days with the same people, the same atmosphere and in the same place. And in just two short months we will be saying our final goodbyes…to LHS that is.

But instead of bawling your eyes out and feeling like it’s the end, think of it as a new beginning or a fresh start.

Just like high school, college will be filled with new friends, new adventures, and a whole new way of life (complete with freedom and independence).

I’m not saying to just leave Ludlow and never come back, I’m saying  face graduation with a positive attitude and a smile on your face. After four long hard years, you finally get to walk across the stage and show everyone the person you’ve become; a responsible and successful graduate of LHS.

High school was just one part of your life that helped shape the person that you have become.

All the hard tests, the good and the bad teachers, the memories with your friends, the laughs, the tears, and the stress will all be repaid on June 7th. That date doesn’t mark the end but it represents the beginning of something new.

So when you walk across the stage at UMASS decked out in your graduation cap and gown be happy, because finally you have made it.

Life is like a book, high school was just one chapter and now it’s time to move on to the next one.

Don’t have regrets, don’t be completely terrified, and think that it isn’t the end that it’s just the beginning.

Samantha Godding, Editor-in-Chief
  Samantha Godding is whatever you see her as, crazy, loud, outgoing, funny, athletic, sarcastic, stubborn, opinionated and possibly one of the only people who will tell you like it is.  She’s also known as Sam or Sammy G. She's a five foot gangsta from Springfield; big hoops are always hanging from her ears. Blond hair creates her blond moments, like when she thought a pack of sticky notes was gum. Sam loves to smile especially after the torturing four years of braces. Coke (the soda), caramel frappes from McDonalds, and the 99 cent Arizona iced tea from gas stations are her addictions.  Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Drake blast from her iPod or her dad’s car when she drives it, but beware when she’s driving, as she’s a speedy demon. Sam has a trucker’s mouth, as “oh bastard” comes out of her mouth at least 20 times a day. Rajon Rondo and the Boston Celtics are her life (Rondo is her baby daddy along with Eminem, Pauly D., Chris Brown and a few others). Varsity softball is what she plays. Laughing makes up about 16 hours of her day. Living it up is the way Sam lives life.
