Tonight is my last night of work. I’m a busboy at a local restaurant and I’m usually the one who waits till the restaurant is empty so I can clean up and close the place down. I’m very familiar with closing time, so I can relate very much to this song. After tonight I’ll be one step closer to IU!
Well today I have graduated from high school. This is such an eventful time and I always try to find the perfect songs to fit the mood. Here are some of my favorite songs to celebrate the end, and the beginning, of one of the many stages of life. I tried to find songs that leaned more towards graduation and moving on, but all these songs on this list are about big changes in life and reflecting on it.
