Making memories in my own way


By Lea Baldwin - Sidney High School



These are some of my closest friends, and we haven’t all had a class together in four years. I am so glad that we had calculus together because we were able to help each other through the hard times, and we became even closer in our final year at Sidney High.

This year was a roller coaster. The beginning of the year started off with the best volleyball season, and my struggle to apply to colleges. The season ended; I dug into my studies and eagerly awaited my college decisions.

Attending Friday football games, homecoming, and orchestra rehearsals, I savored life, and lived it to the fullest. Next, I celebrated New Years, and I looked forward to an easy last semester. March rolled around, and I went on a family vacation, simultaneously, the world learned about Covid-19. Then my world crashed in on itself because I said goodbye to my dog, BB.

The week after, I travelled to D.C. with the Ohio American Legion. Then I returned home for my last week of high school.

Now, graduation is changing, and our senior events are being cancelled. Even though the last few months have been a whirlwind of travesties for my senior year, I can’t forget what the beginning brought me, and the happiness I found in it. It may not be the end I imagined, but I still have my friends, and we get to make our own memories in our own ways.
