This is nearly the last time I will write to you. The other two will not be read by anybody, so I am not counting them as true entries to you. This will be my goodbye to you, even though it is really the fourth to last entry. It has been a long year, and I am glad it is finally over. I am ready to move on and get my life started. I have my summer mostly planned out, and next fall's registration is on its way. I have a couple factory jobs that I can potentially get hired at, but if all else fails, I will stay at McDonald's just to guarantee I have a job. Who knows? Maybe I will still work there on the weekends just to stay on the payroll there and come back for winters when factories don't need their temporary workers. Hopefully I can start building credit with a credit card and possibly start paying for a house this summer as well. I want to start simply investments as well, probably just five year cd's with my tax returns or something. I want to move out really badly, but I'm not sure if it will work out financially. I feel like if I move out, we will be pressed for cash, but if I live at home I will have more money than I know what to do with it. I could easily be wrong on both situations, but I do appreciate how much it will cost to move out and live independently. Well, that's probably a good summary of the first year or so after high school. I guess this is the final goodbye.
