The Reality of High School pt. 2

So on May 31, 2013 I, Rebecca Tapp, graduated high school. It is still pretty sketchy in my mind how exactly that night went due to all of the anxiety causing it to be a blur, but I know that I graduated. So here it is, the part two: my senior year. I started off my senior year not knowing where was going to college, being on three different publications, two of which that would take up a lot of my time. Not only this, but I had my boyfriend, Brandon, was going into his freshman year of college. On…

Last Production Night

Tonight as I walked out of the doors of room 400, it truly hit me that it was my last production night. What I’ve spent the past 3 years doing will be all done after tomorrow and I don’t know if I’m ready to be okay with that.   3 Days Left

Thoughts Before my Last Week Of High School

So it’s just now truly hitting me that I’m entering my last week of high school. My last production night for the journal is tomorrow night. And to top it all off, we are graduating in 2 weeks. I mean is this real life? I’m going to miss so much. Mainly practically living in K’s room like I have all year. I don’t want my life on these publications to end. It’s been practically all I’ve know the past three years, and it’s brought me to meeting so many new people and making new friends, including my boyfriend whom without…

The Reality of High School pt. 1

I am sitting here in my last month of senior year. I am in the mentality of soaking all of the “lasts” in. Lasts like my last newspaper issue, my last play helping my mom’s kids choir at church., etc. But at the same time, I am reflecting on my last four years of high school. While, granted, most of all, if not every, senior does this, looking back at the years, my life, and I myself, have changed a lot. Freshman Year: Freshman year I was that awkward and shy girl lost in the big maze that was the…

A Letter to Myself Starting My Senior Year of High School

Dear Becca, You’re going into your senior year. You’re excited about being the top class in the school. You’re beyond ready to graduate, and on top of all of that, construction is starting so you have to deal with more annoying people in the hallways. Just stay calm. You will make it through.

Just stay calm. Don’t kick your brother out of…

Spring Break Trip Day 1

I am here sitting in the car, stopped in traffic. I’m on spring break and my family and I are going to D.C. We are dropping my dog off at my grandparents in Kentucky and then heading north Sunday. I don’t see how traffic is stopped in the middle of the day on a Friday, but I’ll go with it. Last year on this day I went up to my aunt Connie’s to go to New York for the first time. This year is it good ol’ Washington D.C.! I’ll be posting each day, hopefully with pictures!

Biggest Week

I am a part of my school’s online website and this week (from Thursday, March 7 – Thursday, March 17) is what we call Biggest Week. We have to pass the highest number of visitors and page views than the year before had in order to get a passing grade on the project. On Thursday we got 328 visitors and 2.032 page views. The most in Bureau history. Its all about learning marketing while continuing to raise the number of visitors that come to the website on a regular basis. Hope we pass!

Not That Much Longer

So sitting here now, I am almost three-fourths of the way through my senior year of high school. While senioritis is kicking into high gear, I am trying to maintain a focused state-of-mind, as much of one that an ADD kid can have that is. After being accepted to the college I want to go to more than anything, I started to slack off. It wasn’t until recently when I realized that even thought I’ve been accepted, I still need to actually work in school because, sadly, grades do still count. But the reason for me being ready to graduate…

Post number one

As I sit here typing, it is becoming more and more apparent to me that everything in the world seems to be negative lately. From deaths to shootings, everything seems to be going wrong. The gloomy weather doesn’t help anything either, but that’s beside the point. The point is that through all of the things going on in this world, people need to try to stay positive. Thats the only way we are going to survive. So that is why I am creating this blog. As a way to vent about things going on around me, around the world…anything. So here…
