I’m 20 years of age and I’m coming into my 3rd year out of school. When we finished, we weren’t given a yearbook, like most, but a commemorative pen to mark our time in the school. But that’s not to say I don’t remember everyone that was in my class, because I do, even though there are some in the class that I would be more than happy to forget. I guess for this prompt you could say I’m breaking the rules, but hey, if Charles and Ionia can break the rules, I can too!
While on my way to work about two weeks ago, I was reading a local newspaper, and what do I find, but an article about one of my former classmates. According to the article he ran himself into some trouble with drugs and money. This didn’t surprise me in the slightest, as he wasn’t what you would call a role model student, and if I’m correct, I don’t think he finished school, anyway. The article went on to mention that that former classmate was now working abroad for legal reasons.
It really made me think, you know? You can either end up going down road A or road B, and one of them roads is going to be the road you wish you hadn’t taken. I, personally, couldn’t imagine at the age I am having to be in his situation. I’m actually stressing out whether I’ll pass my exams and get into my 3rd year of college!
My apologies for the lack of ‘creative writing’ involved with this prompt, but there’s already 4 or 5 days I missed and I didn’t want to go another one without doing a prompt!
