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
Quote for the day: A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
