Not Everything is How it Seems

So…Senior year…

I guess I had higher expectations for Senior year. Not just the fun, but the work and stress as well. It does not feel like I am a Senior, nor does it feel like I have the work load a Senior should have (not that I am against this…I am COMPLETELY cool with it:) ).  Honestly though, I have been told my entire life how difficult this last year of high school would be. Here’s the catch though: It really isn’t. I thought that I would be under immense stress especially after last year, but I alas, I am not. I guess this could be a good way to end high school, with that much-needed relief and break before I have to get down to work in college.

Speaking of college, when I read the Overachievers this summer, I thought the college application process would be as terrifying as it was portrayed in that book. I don’t see that though. It isn’t hard at all which makes me wonder if I have just prepared myself well enough to handle the stress. For all I know, I should be under tons of stress right now, but since my courses are easy (to me) I don’t feel it. Would people who are not used to my course level feel pressure? I think this is the time for a scientific experiment.

Or not. We’ll just pretend that it happened. You know, say we did, but didn’t. Sounds great to me!:)

I do have a few goals for myself over the next month:

  • Get to 1500  views on my blog (By the way, I am so proud that I hit 1000 views and it’s all thanks to you!)
  • Get accepted to college so I can stop thinking about THAT
  • Continue my undefeated streak in tennis (5-0). This is all due to my lucky necklace. 🙂
  • Do well in school (well, obviously)
  • Make the district orchestra.
  • Practice the violin in general.

Those are just a few of them for now. I will write again soon!

How are your school years going? Any goals yet? College? Life? Love to hear!:D

  1. You play tennis!! So do I!!! I’m actually working towards a college scholarship right now!! that is so cool, are you looking to get into college on a tennis scholarship too? (congrats on your streak btw!) omg that’s so awesome. even though I’m (probably lol) older than you, im 21, im basically in the same place you are – working towards college and yeah totally i agree, it really isnt THAT stressful. everyone acts like it’s the end of the world or something. It’s just pretty…I duno…normal! Wow so cool though about the tennis thing!! =)

    • Thanks! Unfortunatly, the college I (hopefully will) get into to, doesn’t have a tennis team, or courts for that matter. I just play for the fun of it! I’m on varsity and all so that makes it way better. I hope you get the scholarship! That would be awesome!

  2. I’m glad you’re not stressed about college apps as much as I am. It’s not that they’re hard to write or anything, I just don’t have the time to do them, and one of my goals for this semester are to finish them by mid-October, especially for the school that I’m thinking of applying Early Decision. Other than that, I agree, I don’t think senior year is as difficult as some people make it out to be. The workload is not that bad.
    Congrats on your tennis streak, by the way! ^-^
